Tampa was real good last night. King Henry put up a wall but they were just too much for the Rangers in the end.

The crowd at MSG really surprised me. The building emptied before the trophy presentation and then those left booed. Shame that a bunch of drunks make the rest of the fans seems to have no class. I found the lack of respect from an Original Six city sad.

Go Hawks Go.

still in mourning over last night's game
the Rangers just didn't have it.
give Tampa credit, to be sure, but I didn't see anyone on the Rangers with that extra gear to get things done on offense. Hank kept them in the game the 1st 2 periods.

Hope Chicago gets in

The Hawks were awesome tonight. Such a joy to watch those guys play! They can just cycle and cycle the puck. Eats up the clock and tires the crap out of the other team.

Go Hawks Go!

The Rangers lacked that player or players thatcould kick it up a notch in a situation like that and will a goal. Kreider may turn into that but he is not there yet as he is inconsistent. Nash will never be that player. What you see with him is what you get. He is an excellent two way player who does not have an extra gear. Very sad and pathetic to be shut out in game 5 AND game 7 at home. It's inexcusable. Still the Rangers will be back

I was at game and left after saluting the Rangers, no need to stay and watch Tampa get a trophy that they wouldn't even touch anyway. Who cared at that point.

Very disappointing- i blame the Ranger coaches for being unable to devise a plan to get any offense whatsoever. Game 7 was identical to Game 5 and they made ZERO adjustments and got ZERO chances. Give me a break!!! You have the ability to match the lines and players and cannot generate any chances at all???? NONE

I am not an expert on the intricacies of hockey but i watch other teams play and fail to see how you get so few scoring chances in 2 straight meaningful home games. How do you come out so flat and stay so flat. Rangers did nothing to carry the play in either game. The coach should be blamed for that performance.

I think your both correct.
AV should have made some adjustments before or during game 7
I think the Rangers are 1 - 2 players away. Maybe Kreider, or possibly Stepan or Fast can develop - they are all about 24 or so I think. Unless they have a super prospect in the wings, I suspect they'll have to acquire someone.
Belatsky will be a free agent

Kreider is that prospect. I just read that he is working with both a skills coach and a sports pyschologist this summer. He has every tool to be a superstar. He can be the next Brendan Shanahan. If he hits that point he is the player the team needs. He already has a nack for pig goals in the post-season.

that's great news.

meanwhile, the story is finally getting out about Zucc's injury. In case you haven't heard, he had a skull fracture and a brain contusion. He couldn't talk for 4 days. I was assuming it was "just" a concussion. Pretty sobering.
I'll be glad to see him back next year, for more reasons than one.

For the first time ever, two goalies from the same university will face each other in the Stanley Cup final...Ben Bishop as the starter for Tampa, and Scott Darling as a backup for Chicago. Both played at the University of Maine.

http://www.goblackbears.com/sports/m-hockey/2014-15/releases/201506029dyovn

I used to work with Scott Darling's cousin, I wonder if that is enough for a ticket hookup?

rooting for the Bolts for some reason- i think they are a lot better than people think but that remains to be seen. Hawks are a tough matchup.

Hope Zuch is OK and plays again at his level.

Should be a fun final to watch even without a rooting interest. Not sure Hawks can keep up with Bolts who i think fly under the radar but are very impressive. We shall see.

But better to leave than boo.


Blackhawks take the first game! 3 more wins to go.

Maybe I'm biased , but right now the combination of talent and playoff experience make the Blackhawks pretty hard to beat.

Hell, straight up cardio is a plus, too. Since the 2008-09 season, the Hawks have played in 111 playoff games.

But, we'll see! Lotta lotta hockey left to be played!

The core of this Blackhawk team just never gives up, never lets being behind get to them. They just keep cycling and digging.

My wife and I were watching the local news this morning and of course that was the top headline here. She commented on how seven or eight years ago we would go see Hawks games all the time as she got suite tickets for free. The United Center was basically empty. Funny how the past few years everyone is now a die hard Hawks fan.

Where were they when they weren't winning? She isn't a Cubs fan but she said at least they show up even when they stink.

Hawks have great depth. Not much excitement last night --Hawks shut Tampa down really well and struck when they got the chance. Saad can really play. Another young stud for the Hawks.

I hope Stamkos and the Triplets get it going and make a series out of this. As a Rangers fan, every time i watch Strahlman i just shake my head and say how could they have let him go!!!

I lived in Chicago from 1998-2004. Went to a lot of games at the UC and yes, it was empty. However, if the Hawks were playing at home, they only way to go see them was to go to the UC, because they didn't televise home games.

Everyone used to joke "Just wait until Bill Wirtz dies!" Funny thing is, look at what's happened since Bill Wirtz died?

If you are talking about straight up bandwagoning, well, I certainly remember a whole lotta brand new Red Wing fans in the late 90s...

When I moved here I was shocked that as the locals call him, "The Old Man" wouldn't allow games to be televised. That is just stupid.

Regarding the Wings, I have to disagree having lived most of my life there. Even when they stunk people would go see them. When I was a kid I remember working rabbit ears on my TV to try to get their games in. Ah memories....

All I know is that I've loved the Blackhawks since I was 13, and the last six years have been incredible.

The Blackhawks had been heading towards Ranger territory with their last cup coming in 1961 when they finally put it altogether. ENjoy this success. It's hard to come by, particularly in a salary cap league.

ChiHawks have proven out as the real deal over the long haul -- long haul being inception of league basically, in addition of course to recent years -- they were nothing but class after winning the Cup in Boston in 2012

TB will probably make some noise yet, but this is where Hawks are at their best -- they proved that again last night
