I watched the third period of that game, Chicago is unbelievable... If they don't burn out in the next round I have a feeling this could be their year.

There's two ways I see this team going: First, they're probably the closest team, in terms of young , burgeoning stars, to the Oilers of the 80s. If this is not their year, their time will come in the very near future, and probably quite often.

Secondly, their youth may work against them. They're young, brash, and cocky. If they make it to the final, they may take it for granted, and it may be a while before they learn their lessons and make another deep playoff run.

they certainly have enough energy and depth, they just kept coming and that final goal by Kane for the hat trick was insane, it just looked so effortless...

This.

We all went friggin insane when he made that third goal. Unbelievable.

Also, I gotta say, I love BoMac's comparing us to the 80's Oilers...makes me happy. If the Blackhawks run is anywhere even close to that Oilers' run it will be a beautiful time to be alive in Chicago.

all these game 7's makes for a good post season so far. I want to see Boston in the Eastern Final but I don't really care if it's Washington or Pittsburgh. Same goes for Anaheim or Detroit although I will say that I hate Anaheim more so there is that...

I'm hoping for Boston, DC, and Anaheim. I don't like Anaheim or Detroit, but I always pull for the underdog.

Tonight's game should be fan-fucking-tastic, I cannot wait!

I'm always thinking in terms of what would be good for the game, and I think a Chicago-Detroit conference final would be excellent, as would a series between Boston and either the Caps or Pens.

Fix'd.



Three out of 4 series went the limit. That's amazing. I'm hoping that all games are close and go down to the end or even overtime.

Yeah, it changed in a hurry again, didn't it?

These series have been fantastic.

Down 5-0, I'm 15 mins away from not caring about the rest of these playoffs

Carolina? You gotta be fucking kidding me...

Oh well, Pittsburgh shouldn't have too much trouble with them, I'm thinking.

Chicago Vs Pittsburgh in the final I am hoping - the young vs the slightly older…

I'm seriously thrilled over the Wings/Hawks. I don't think we've seen an Original Six conf final since the mid-90's.

And if they beat the Wings then I definitely would love to see Chicago win it all. Usually I wish death or horrible curses on teams who beat my teams, but I've always liked Chicago, even when I hated them. Does that make sense?

Yeah, it's awesome. And it's not only two Original Six teams, it's two Original Six teams that are HUUUUGE rivals and hate each other. Shit could get nasty on the ice. I can't wait.

I know it's still early, but it's looking like a rematch of last year's finals.
