Hawks eliminate Canucks with 7-5 win in Game 6

Patrick Kane had a hat trick and Jonathan Toews scored twice as the Hawks advanced to the Western Conferenc finals with a 7-5 win over the Canucks in Game 6 at the United Center.
The Hawks win the semifinal series 3-2 and advance to the conference finals for the first time since 1995. Courtesy of

What a game! Back and forth, back and forth ... but fortunately the Hawks came out on top. Kudos to the Vancouver Canucks for playing an excellent, tough series. Unfortunately for the Canucks, the Hawks were just a little bit better in the series.
Growing up in suburban Chicago, I lived and died for the Hawks when I was young. It was so painful to watch Hawks ownership destroy the team in the late 1990's. Thank goodness Rocky Wirtz got to take over as chairman and bring the team back.
I will fade off to sleep with a smile on my face tonight.
