As a Boston fan, some thoughts:

1) As a Bruins fan, there was a dirty little secret Boston had of getting very, very, very SOFT in the last 1:30 of each period. For whatever the reason, if you can get Boston on its heels right before the buzzer sounds, you can get yourself some easy goals. It was true all season, and apparently Quenneville understood, since he applied the pressure just so to make Boston their typically lost selves in the last 1:30 of play.

2) Watching none other than Johnny Boychuk stand there with his stick on the ice as Bolland nets the winning goal. The same Boychuk who almost took Toews' head off with a suspension-worthy hit in Game 5 but got away with it at the time.

3) The hockey gods giveth (game 7 of the Toronto series where Toronto gave up 4 goals in the last half of the 3rd period to lose) and the hockey gods taketh away (Boston coughing up 2 goals 17 seconds apart to sail off into the sunset.)

Well played, Toronto media, well played:

That was an amazing final five minutes in Game 6.
I was sure that they were headed back to Chicago for Game 7. Then sure it would go to overtime. Wow.

Congrats Chicago!

I have a soft spot for the Blackhawks ever since I went to school in Chi-Town. Back then, early 00s, they were not very good at all and often times college kids could get into games for $5. I went to a number of games and had a great time (first time I ever had kettle chips, which are incredible). Also I used to eat at a restaurant off the loop that had one of the old Cup banners (an original from 1938), and Christmas Vacation is a classic.

Way to go Blackhawks!


Edit: The place was Portillo's

Chicago Blackhawks, an Original Six National Hockey League team, won a great series against a very good Boston Bruins, also an Original Six team.

I didn't have a dog in that fight, but that game was very enjoyable. I always like (in any sport) when it looks like it's over and suddenly it's not.

Actually, this time around it looked like it wasn't over and then suddenly it was!

Congratulations Chicago,

you coldn't have done it without a [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hammarby_IF_Hockey_(1921%E2%80%932008)"]Hammarby [/url]player.

He even refused to play in any other clubteam in Sweden during the lock-out instead training with the fan run divison 2 team (that is really divison 4 due to strange nameing conventions but still) that is left of Hammarby Hockey, acctually the team just recently could become Hammarby hockey again.

Oh also don't let him near any fast cars and alcohol because you know tragedy

edit: fixed wikipedia links
