Blackhawks Come Up Just Short

Anyone who doubts that the NHL Stanley Cup playoffs provide the absolute best in sports should have watched game seven of the Chicago Blackhawks/Vancouver Canucks series. Despite a barrage of Canucks shots, Hawks goalie Corey Crawford made spectacular save after save.

When Hawks captain Jonathan Toews scored his first goal of the series -- shorthanded -- with less than two minutes to play in the third period of a 1-0 game, it looked like the Hawks might pull off the amazing come from behind victory in overtime. However, a turnover in their own zone spelled the end of the Hawks season.

Congratulations to the Vancouver Canucks, who, despite disappearing in games four and five, played a great series. And ... for online poker buddies and Canucks fans Schaubs, Pirate Lawyer, and Fuel55 -- best wishes for a deep run in the playoffs.

Thank you sir. Very satisfying result after years of heartbreak. I really respect the Hawks - all of their best players, seemingly, are Canadian Olympians whom I cheered on deliriously in 2010 - and it is quite the accomplishment to finally beat them.
