Saturday's Dump & Chase: Searching For a Hero

On Thursday night, Filip Scoresberg responded to his Calder snub with a hat trick, leading the charge on a whole team smack down of the Hawks here in Smashville. Tonight the series moves back to the Windy City, and with our hopes teetering on the brink it's time for another Awards finalist to stand strong in the spotlight. Pekka Rinne has been steadily improving as the series progresses, but tonight (knowing Weber won't be back soon) is time for Superman to take this young team on his back and suck the air out of a shaken Chicago team. This is our time, this is our game, heroes will be made tonight!
