Maybe I like old school rivalries more than others, but not having the Red Wings in our division will take a while getting use to, so this made last nights victory pretty big. Yes, the Hawks won their 15th Divisional Title, but they won the last seven Blackhawks/Red Wings match-ups in a rivalry that the Red Wings dominated for long stretches. With the Blackhawks trailing 2-1 late Jonathan Toews tied up the contest, and then Brandon Saad scored the shootout goal winner.
There were of course a lot of comments on Twitter as the Hawks skated off the ice with the victory, but our tweet of the week summed it up pretty good.
@blackhawk_up thank heavens, I hate that team

Quick and to the point! The Hawks were lucky to pull out the win against a team most Blackhawks fans hate! Congrats @rrbolech on this weeks victory. Thanks to all of our Twitter followers for the comments and conversation we look forward to hearing from you tomorrow!
