Well we finally have something to cheer about. Or maybe not? Normally these 1st round playoff games are easy for a team as talented as our Chicago Blackhawks. This year, however, EVERYTHING is different.
We open round 1 with arguably the best team in the NHL in the St. Louis Blues. Should be a HELL of a series. If we can win this early matchup there is NO reason we cannot win BACK TO BACK STANLEY CUPS! I was at the Banner Raising this year at the UC and I can tell you, the fans and the players are still VERY Hungry for another bite at the apple. And Bickel with those new teeth, Kane and Toews will be back. We should be at full strength.
And just a side note - We BLEW THE BLUES OUT THE LAST 2 GAMES. I still believe the Blackhawks are the better team in a 7 game series.
Of course we will be gambling on each goal for those that want in...
FOR THOSE THAT WEAR ANYTHING BLACKHAWKS - Draft Beers (Bud Light and Miller Lite) Thursday Night will be $1.99 - Domestic Buckets will be 5 for $10.00. I have attached the 1st round playoff schedule below. ARE YOU READY TO RUMBLE!!!!
