Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks took to the ice on Saturday night during an historical night, and although the Hawks weren’t making history they made a big comeback that could be a momentum leading victory against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Let’s be honest we all want to talk about the Chicago Cubs reaching their first World Series since 1945, which is one of those number that is like the 1961 that Blackhawks fans stared at for years until they broke through in 2010.
It’s really amazing how similar their stories are except of course the fact that the Cubs history is so much longer and more cursed. I’m not talking about the longevity of course, but how these two franchises built their teams to a Championship caliber type of team.
Both teams have made some timely acquisitions, and made some really great draft picks high in the draft. The Hawks picked Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane, and the Cubs picked Kris Bryant very high in the first round and now the Cubs like the Blackhawks have erased a very old number. The Cubs of course have one more number to erase like the Hawks erased 1961.
Back to the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday night, the Hawks and Hawks fans were already talking about what a disappointing season this has been, and a funny thing happened on the way to the Chicago Blackhawks 4th loss. The Hawks instead of packing it in scored twice in the last few minutes of the game to send it to OT and then a shootout that the Chicago Blackhawks eventually turned the L into a W.
The Hawks have a heart of a Champion, and late in the game Saturday night, they proved to everyone that they still have what it takes to pull out 2 points late in any game.
