Good Morning Chicago Blackhawks Fans! 

While the Chicago Blackhawks are off golfing or doing whatever they do when they aren’t playing hockey, the Conference Finals are steamrolling to a completion with the Pittsburgh Penguins going all Field of Dreams and forced their Eastern Conference Finals to Go The Distance.

Yes, Field of Dreams was one of my favorite movies when I was growing up, and so if I can squeeze in a clip of the movie during the offseason I say why not.  So the Pittsburgh Penguins won last night forcing a Game #7 back in Pittsburgh which has to put a smile on Gary Bettman and the NHL office which has to be dreaming and well needing a Pittsburgh Penguins appearance in the Stanley Cup Finals.

The Western Conference has to be a crap shoot ratings wise in my eyes and either way I just want to see the San Jose Sharks take out the St. Louis Blues tonight.   I’m not one of those fans that says I root for the team that beat us to get to the Championship. We are talking about the St. Louis Blues and I can’t stand so I’m rooting for the San Jose Sharks to win tonight and their series not to go the distance.
