Congrats To The Blackhawks

It's been a long time for the revitalized franchise. It's great to see them on top of the hockey world again! The run to the Stanley Cup has been one of the most exciting in recent sports memory. Nothing will take away from the Sox winning it all in 2005, but this is a different type of animal and I am proud to say that I've been watching all season.

This is exactly what the Blackhawks and Chicago need. Each other, in a more positive light. The Hawks have been the joke of the NHL for far too long. I might have become a more die hard fan, if not for the long standing blacked out home game rule. Thankfully, that rule has been abolished and I have been able to get into the Hawks more in the last few seasons.

It was a long road to the victory last night and the overtime ending was one of the strangest I have ever seen to win a championship. I think that's what makes this win and this team endure in my heart. Against all odds, they played their hearts out and won it all. I can always get behind a team like that.

Congratulations, Blackhawks! You are now relevant again. Enjoy your well deserved championship!

Congrats to the Flyers too. They lasted longer in the playoffs then they likely should have and made a good showing in the finals.

The ending was still tough to take but it was a fun ride.

That entire series had me on the edge of my seat! It could have gone either way for any game. Those are the finals games that I love to watch.

The Flyers were definitely worthy opponents!

Congrats to the Blackhawks - such an exciting young team & I'm so happy the franchise has been rejuvenated. Love Jonathan Toews - he was amazing for Canada in the Olympics & great in the playoffs. He might be my new favourite player.
