It Was Over In 17 Seconds

from Dan Shaughnessy of the Boston Globe,

The Bruins were going back to Chicago. The New Garden was as loud as it’s ever been, the Stanley Cup was going to stay under wraps, and the greatest puck series of a generation was going to play out in a seventh game Wednesday night at the United Center.

And then it melted like a snowcone on Causeway Street on the hottest day of the new summer. Before you could say Grady Little or David Tyree, the Chicago Blackhawks had their own Miracle On Ice and captain Jonathan Toews was hoisting the Stanley Cup over his head.

Chicago, 3, Boston 2.

Two goals in 17.7 seconds. That’s all it took to go from ecstasy to agony.

Bruins got Leaf’d.  Good series, though. Don’t particularly care for the teams but I wish it went to 7.

Now it’s time to change the avy :(
