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!

The Blackhawks seriously make me HAPPY!
They fought and fought and fought through overtime and another overtime and another one and THEY WON! I came home thinking I was only going to catch the end of the game and go to bed. But it’s 2:22AM and Ive been blessed to watch the last 3 OTs to watch my boys pull out a MAJOR WIN!
Thank you Brent Seabrook! Thank you Chicago Blackhawks! And thank you NBC Sports Network for bringing a piece of home to my living room in Boston!
Cue the Chelsea Dagger!
Let the Hockey Games begins! The postseason barely started and there’s been so much activity on and off the ice. First there was the Bruins major announcement of GM Peter Chiarelli’s departure. I asked a friend the other day “Who do you think’s gonna go first: Chiarelli or Julien?” And he said plainly “Chiarelli.” Me, I was stumped. It could’ve been either or. But my friend was right. And now that I think about it, it should’ve been Chiarelli (as it was).
Remember that Tyler Seguin trade?! I NEVER agreed with that move. Yes the kid was wild off the ice but on it he got the job down. During his rookie season he helped the Bruins get to the Stanley Cup. And the following year he had a plus-minus of +34! That’s ri-donk-culous. Continue reading
