Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- History Is Fun

By Keith Schultz

Good Morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! 

It’s hard to believe that the Chicago Blackhawks aren’t in the Stanley Cup Final this year, but before we talk about Game #1 of the Final let’s take quick look back at another series.

I really don’t watch much NBA Basketball anymore and nothing like when Michael Jordan played for the Bulls, but last night Golden State was able to come back from a 3-1 hole in the Western Conference Finals to win the series and head to the NBA Finals.

It sure seems like Oklahoma City is to the Warriors now how the Detroit Red Wings were to the Chicago Blackhawks back in 2013.  The Blackhawks started that season with the longest point streak to start the season in 24, and looked to be cruising in the playoffs until they met their nemesis in the Red Wings.

The Hawks were down 3-1, but they fought back to win the series with some dramatic victories on the road in Game #6, and then an overtime classic in Game #7 that ended on this Brent Seabrook goal.

Of course this was the only time that the Chicago Blackhawks were pushed to the brink of elimination in 2013.  The Stanley Cup Final can be described in two words… 17 Seconds.  The Hawks won Game #6 and the Stanley Cup with one of the most dramatic 17 seconds possible.  Now will Steph Curry be able to pull of this type of history in his Game #6 against Cleveland and Lebron James this year.  Of course this allow me to replay those 17 seconds once again.
