Chicago Blackhawks vanquish Anaheim in Game 7, advance to Stanley Cup Final vs. Tampa

The Chicago Blackhawks defeated the Anaheim Ducks 5-3 to advance to the Stanley Cup Final on Saturday evening, and Jonathan Toews' pair of goals paved Chicago's way:

The NHL had posted his on May 28th, but this still holds true, and all you have to do is give the Lightning home-ice advantage (thanks to a 108-point finish to Chicago's 102) to figure out where the games will take place:

STANLEY CUP FINAL WILL OPEN WEDNESDAY, JUNE 3

NEW YORK (May 28, 2015) -- The National Hockey League today announced the schedule of dates for the 2015 Stanley Cup Final, which will begin on Wednesday, June 3.

love how toews created a new tradition of getting the team to gather around (but not touch) the conference trophy for a photo.

I would have rather seen the Ducks in the final.

Not because I like ‘em, Gods no. Because now we’re just waiting for the Chicago press to start on about that nonsensical “dynasty” talk again. With that, I hope the Lightning beat them handily. It’s a cup ring for Stevie, even though he’s on the wrong team this time around.
