Anyway here's more about last night's victory from the Tribune:
The Blackhawks captured their first postseason series victory since 1996 with a 4-1 win over the Calgary Flames in Game 6 of the Western Conference quarterfinals Monday night. The Hawks took the best-of-seven series four games to two and finished off the Flames at the Pengrowth Saddledome for the first win by a road team in the series.I'm sure that there are some Hawks fans who would paint that as "Dollar Bill" Wirtz' fault. He was very willing to let go of good talent and let novices coach the team.
Dustin Byfuglien had a goal and two assists, Patrick Kane had a goal and assist and Adam Burish and Brian Campbell also scored to propel the Hawks and goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin to the victory. It was the fourth consecutive season the Flames have been eliminated in the first round.
The Hawks will next face the Vancouver Canucks in the conference semifinals.
Now under new management since his untimely demise in 2007 we see where the Hawks are going. I'm not sure they're going to win the Stanley Cup this year, but excited that the team is doing great in the playoffs. I look forward to the next round.
