O joy! For the third time in six years, the Chicago Blackhawks have won the Stanley Cup. Making it all the more wonderful to watch is it that it's the first time they've won the cup while playing in Chicago in 77 years, since 1938.
Honestly, I wasn't sure they would win this series. The Tamp Bay Lightning were a first-time team in the finals, but they were playing very aggressively and skating, and I thought they may have outplayed the Hawks in most of the finals. But what a lot of analysts said before the series seemed to hold true, that the Blackhawks Stanley Cup experience would win out in the end. And so, apparently, it did, winning the series 4 games to 2.
The whole series was incredibly close. Up until about with five minutes left in this game, I don't believe any team ever had a lead of more than one goal at any point. When the Blackhawks took a 2-0 lead tonight, that was the first two-goal margin. And it held up as the final score.
