Good Morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! 

The Chicago Blackhawks last played on April 25th when they lost 3-2 in Game #7 of their opening round series against the St. Louis Blues. They were possibly one

Brent Seabrook

shot that hit both posts from making it to the next round and a deep run in the Stanley Cup playoffs.

That being said the Stanley Cup playoffs continued without the Chicago Blackhawks, and if you have turned off the NHL and been watching baseball since that loss, the Stanley Cup Final are now 3-1 and the fat lady is ready to sing.

The Pittsburgh Penguins were probably the hottest team in the final month of the season, and they have carried it over into May and now June. So, after Jonathan Toews had possibly taken over as the best leader in the NHL with three Stanley Cups in 6 seasons, if the Pittsburgh Penguins finish off the Sharks get ready for a whole lot of Sidney Crosby talk.

The Penguins are so close to winning it all which means that Phil Kessel of all people may be lifting the Stanley Cup, but they still do have to win the final close out game yet they will have 3 chances to do it.

It seems like it should be all over after Game #5 in Pittsburgh but stranger things have happened.
