Cup Check! Stanley Cup Final Game 4, June 10, 2015

Let me explain…no, there is too much. Let me sum up. The Hawks started the series strong and broke the Bolts’ serve in Tampa Bay (2-1), then Tampa Bay won a high-scorer (4-3), and carried that into Chicago for Game 3 (3-2).

But what’s to come in Game 5? United Center. Chicago. Does Tampa Bay keep their momentum going into 3-1 lead? Or do the Hawks rule Madison Street and tie the series?

That’s why we’re here tonight! It’s June 10th, and that means Game 4, baby!

(If you can’t tell, it’s Sheila, and playoffs make me verbose.)

At the end of the night the Hawks stepped it up and did in fact lock up a series tie.

How about them details:

Goals:

– (CHI) Jonathan Toews at 6:40 in the second period
– (TBL) Alex Killorn at 11:47 in the second period
– (CHI) Brandon Saad at 6:22 in the third period

Goalies: Vasilevskiy stopped 17 of 19, Crawford stopped 24 of 25.

Notables:

Chicago likes it some playoffs:

(Corey’s not her favorite though!)

Tampa Bay makes a nerve-wracking goalie change, BUT.

On to the game!

Best:

Saaaaaaad.

Nobody look at us.

nobody look at us

hug pls

Best for people who don’t want to hug Captain Cuddly at the moment: Killorn’s goal!

Worst:

Three Hawks go for a wander behind the net while Killorn scores:

Silliest:

Where’s the presence? WHERE, Eddie????

 

Blackhawks 2, Lightning 1, the series is tied 2-2

This series continues Saturday, June 13th at 8:00 Eastern in Tampa Bay..

 

Once the points were tallied and the soundbytes given The Other Half took a vote and left Sheila to her own devices on this one, but we agree that getting between Sheila and goalie lovin’ is a bad idea:

What impressed us Sheila: Corey “YOU SHALL NOT PASS” Crawford stopped what seemed like a barrage of shots in the last two minutes of the game, including solid shots by Stamkos and Hedman. Of course this is appreciated by his backup:

What distressed us Sheila: Timonen came so close to scoring and putting the perfect narrative ending on his NHL career, but just–just missed!

And also, just, Bishop! Goalies should be blessed by the gods and never hurt or sick. Otherwise, how can you truly put a goal against them in your win column?

In conclusion:
