Thanks to a Patrick Kane goal in overtime, the Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup tonight in Philadelphia, their first since 1961. Yes, Toronto, that means the Maple Leafs are now on the clock (1967)!
So what do you think, Predators fans? The Preds had Chicago on the ropes in Game 5 of the first round, and coughed it up in one of the all-time great collapses in NHL playoff history. Does the fact that the Blackhawks went on to win the Cup make it hurt less, or more?
