GAME OVER: Hawks 4, Kings 5 (OT) Kings Win Series 4-3

Well.

I’m not really sure what to say.  That game was nuts.  At the end of it there were like 5 lucky goals and the Kings got the last lucky bounce in overtime.  I’m not going to shit on any of the players.  Yes, there were mistakes, but there are mistakes in every game. It just seems like each error (for both teams) ended up in the back of the net. Series between great teams are decided by the thinnest of margins. Tonight the Kings were on the right side of the margin.

Chest Thumping and Self-Flagellation

For five periods the Western Conference Finals appeared to be sort of a mismatch – until they didn’t. Did that really happen? Things were going so well until a puck thrown toward the net on the tail end of a shift hit Justin Williams’ foot and dry heaved in between Corey Crawford’s pads. Just like that, the most dangerous lead in hockey was cut to a lousy goal. You know the rest.

So the Blackhawks and Kings are tied at one game apiece. They’ll fly to Los Angeles and try to figure out a winner for game three. But right now all the hockey fans in the world will tell you the Los Angeles Kings lead the series 1-1. Just like the Wild led the Hawks 2-2 in the second round. Just like the Blues won the first round two games to none. 

Puckcast Recap: Hawks 3, Kings 1

The Hawks rebounded from their terrible showing last night in Toronto by pretty much dominating the Los Angeles Kings in the United Center on Sunday.  Chicago jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first peroid, and pretty much cruised to a victory.  Instead of a proper recap, please accept this Puckcast, in which Fork and CT barely talk about hockey at all, let alone the game that just took place.
But they did talk about:
  • Dan Roan’s forehead
  • Christmas traditions
  • Terrible albums by ex-Beatles
  • Qualifications to be on a Puckcast
  • Sheldon Brookbank and Brandon Bollig
  • Origins of BC
