Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Nashville Predators did what they needed to do, and they dominated both games in Smashville and sent the Stanley Cup Final back to Pittsburgh all tied up at 2 games a piece. 

Yesterday I talked about missing the Chicago Stadium, and all of sudden during one of the intermissions of Game #4  Charles Barkley was saying Bridgestone Arena compared to old Chicago Stadium back in the day with Michael Jordan playing for the Chicago Bulls.

That really is high praise from Charles Barkley, but after sitting in Bridgestone for three games, it’s a very loud arena but it’s not the Chicago Stadium.

Secondly, the Predators which i was totally wrong after two games in Pittsburgh, have not just tied up the series but they have dominated two games on home ice and to be honest dominated Game #1.

This does remind me of the 2015 Stanley Cup Final when the Lightning had dominated pretty much all 4 of the first 4 games, but found themselves all tied up at 2 games a piece, and then the Hawks found a way to win next two games for the Stanley Cup championship.
