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.
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!
