Because it is hockey’s off season and we don’t have a game to watch every other night, we will spend the summer basking in the fact that our team is the best. On twitter, we sent out tweets with the hashtag #ThingsYouCanDoIn17Seconds referring to the two goals that Bryan Bickell and Dave Bolland scored 17 seconds apart to win the Stanley Cup for the Chicago Blackhawks in Boston. Here’s a flashback for you.

Here’s our original tweet that we continued to add to, because there are just so many fun things you can do in 17 seconds!

And here are some of our favorite responses from you.

Goaltender Mac Carruth was selected in the 2010 entry draft by the Blackhawks, and it sounds like he did a couple of cool things in 17 seconds for the Portland Winterhawks of the Western Hockey League.

There’s the always classic rivalry tweets.


Who isn’t going to be doing this all summer?

And it’s nice to mix in a couple of other Chicago sports, right? The Bears, Cubs, and White Sox were on people’s minds, for better or worse.

Thanks for playing along! Do you have more to add? Leave them in the comments!

NEXT WEEK: In honor of the Blackhawks hosting prospect camp, next week’s hashtag is #BlackhawksSchool. Have fun!
