In the words of Mr. Jay Z, the Blackhawks are on to the next one.
They played 60 minutes of solid hockey, gave my heart a bit of a scare in the final minutes, but came out with a huge win over the Minnesota Wild. And I couldn’t be happier… and tireder!
Yes, I know “tireder” is not a word but a sista is tired. It’s what happens when you’re on the East Coast and your beloved teams are in the Midwest. Usually when I come home it’s super late and all I want to do is sleep. But then I think “Oh hey the Hawks are on” or “Let me catch the 4th quarter of the Bulls game.” So I stay up and watch the game and the next thing you know I’m yelling at the TV, just like I did tonight when the Wild scored 2 goals in 2 minutes in an effort to rally from a 4-1 deficit.
#Ahhhhhh is what I think I tweeted.
This is why we can’t have nice things, like leads. Nonetheless, the boys held on to their one-goal lead for dear life and are now off to the Western Conference finals for the 5th time in 7 years.
This sista is tre proud! But, off to bed I go!
