Duncan Keith and Patrick Kane scored goals and goalie Corey Crawford was flawless in net, as the Blackhawks shut out the Tampa Bay Lightning, 2-0, in Game 6 of the 2015 Stanley Cup Finals in Chicago on Monday night. With the win, Chicago captured their third NHL championship in six seasons.
I was having a conversation with Rob Edwards about how the playoffs for the NHL and the NBA are happening, and there isn't a lot of support or buzz for those leagues around here. For many in this area, it is time to put on their Royals Blue or Cardinals Red, and baseball is only the sport that matters right now.
Ever since Rob moved to Missouri and left his beloved Northern hockey loving region, I promised him that we would go to a Missouri Mavericks game. Last night (Feb. 26), I fulfilled my promise and I took Rob and Kevin Walker to their first every Missouri Mavericks game at the Independence Events Center.
