It was tough to watch. The Blackhawks beat my Kings and then my dad and brother's Bruins. At least the Blackhawks are my mom's favourite team (and have been since the early 60s). These playoffs certainly created a family rivalry... well, it would have been worse if my parents haven't been divorced since about 1992!
In the end, congratulations to the Blackhawks. They proved that they were the best team in the NHL during the regular season and the playoffs. Now bring on the off-season festivities!
"The bells, the bows and the flashing lights, the mistletoes and the 'Silent Nights. It's all for show, but that's all right. That's not why I love this time of year..."
