As the self-appointed spokesmen/woman of the Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks, we are using the idea of “To the victors go the spoils” quite seriously. What we will do between now and the night the Stanley Cup banner is raised in the United Center is point out the shortcomings of all the teams that won’t have four crisp new banners in their rafters. We continue this series with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Blown: Hawks 4, Bolts 5 (OT)

For a brief moment, it looked like the Hawks had control of this one.  That moment came a little more than 7 minutes into the second period when Dan Carcillo and Patrick Sharp scored 12 seconds apart to give the Hawks a 4-2 lead.  It seemed like this might finally take the piss out of the Lightning.  Instead, Steven Stamkos decided to skip around the rink untouched and score 2 goals to tie the game.
