A Team Effort

from David Haugh of the Chicago Tribune,

“It was storybook with Patrick scoring the game-winner,’’ Blackhawks Chairman Rocky Wirtz said. “I dedicate this to my father, my grandfather, my uncle and everybody in our family who worked their asses off for so long.’‘

In the city in which a fictional boxer inspired generations of underdogs in a movie telling his story of redemption, another Rocky celebrated a rags-to-riches triumph that only felt too good to be true. Six years after seeing his family’s team ranked the worst organization is professional sports, Wirtz now can boast being an owner of the best hockey team in the land.

From Wirtz to first indeed.

“Everyone has a piece of this, it was much more than just me,’’ Wirtz said as players and coaches congratulated him on the ice.

Big Market Win For The NHL

from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star,

Let’s see if the NHL can make something out of this.

The last time a monster Stanley Cup drought was busted, the New York Rangers hoisted the best trophy in sports and the game seemed ready to explode into a new golden era.

Then, the NHL promptly drove into a ditch, first enforcing a season-damaging lockout and then allowing the Dead Puck Era to slow the world’s fastest game to a crawl for a decade.

Today, the league has another champion from a big market, Original Six city that waited almost five decades to witness another championship team.

Surely the NHL won’t drop kick this chance away.

“We Just Won The Stanley Cup”

from Phil Coffey of NHL.com,

In the NHL commercial spot “No Words,” the age-old adage that a picture is worth a thousand words couldn’t be more beautifully told or relevant to what took place on the ice at the Wachovia Center Wednesday night.

Winning the Stanley Cup is a visceral experience, a tactile moment often accompanied by a primal howl and unstoppable stream of tears.

“Oh my God, it’s like that commercial,” Conn Smythe Trophy winner Jonathan Toews said. “I’m speechless. This team put on one heck of a run. We knew from Day 1 of this season we had the potential to do it. And to realize our goal, it’s an amazing feeling.

“There’s so many great things about winning a Stanley Cup,” Toews said. “This is it. This is the best feeling you can ever get playing hockey, and I just can’t believe it’s happening.”

“What a feeling,” Patrick Kane said. “I can’t believe it. It’s unbelievable. We just won the Stanley Cup.”

The Drought Is Over In Chicago

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

For 49 years, or longer than any other team in the NHL, the Chicago Blackhawks had patiently waited for their Stanley Cup drought to come to an end.

There had been a few close calls and near misses since the days of Glenn Hall and Bobby Hull, but many more years when the Blackhawks were an NHL laughingstock, a sad reminder of what was once a glorious franchise. No other Original Six team, not even the Toronto Maple Leafs, had found so many unique and desultory ways to come up short for so long - almost half-a-century.

Until last night, that is.

Spurred on by the dynamic presence of team captain Jonathan Toews and the resolute leadership of defenceman Duncan Keith, the Blackhawks ended their championship drought on a rainy night in the City of Brotherly Love.
