It should be an exciting final, I have always been a closet Blackhawks fan ever since Al Secord left my Bruins and and headed to the windy city.

Thank you for putting that into perhaps better words than I could.

I Never thought I would say this as a 38-year St. Louis Blues fan, but -

Well done, Blackhawks!! That was a hell of a gritty Game One performance out there tonight.

This is going to be a great series between CHI and PHI. Good luck to both teams.

And we still miss Pronger is STL, dude is a warrior.....

Flyers had a 4-0 advantage in penalties. They had a real lucky goal. Toews, buff and Kaner were off tonight, ladd was out.....Chicago took phillys best and most fotunate shot and still won. Good signs all over.

To recap, Leighton was so good tonight his own coach pulled him.

Wow, that's two home wins in a row. Had they done that yet in the playoffs? They've been strangely at ease tearing up their opponents on the road lately.
