TRH 3RD ROUND PLAYOFF RECAP 4 – CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS: Tosca-OHNO

KINGS 2, BLACKHAWKS 3

 

Wow. What a high Los Angeles Kings fans have been on since the end of Game 3. Their team bounced back on home ice to cut the Chicago Blackhawks series lead to 2-1.

What seemed like an impossible comeback suddenly was within the team’s grasp. If the Kings could hold serve on home ice, it would be a brand new series heading back to Chicago. And winning at the Staples Center had become something expected. The Kings home ice win streak reached 15 games following their Game 3 win.

Seemingly nothing could stand in their way in evening the series. All of the good juju accompanied with Staples Center was there. As long as every little minute detail stayed in place in the moments leading up to the puck drop, the defending Stanley Cup Champions were undoubtedly winning this game.

PREGAME:

 

No way!
*whimper*
Yeah, right!
You’ll need something big to happen for that to happen, bud.
OH GOOD GOD.

 Cartman might move above my love of streamers if this keeps up.

 

Mike eventually calmed down.

TRH THREE STARS OF THE NIGHT

What 26 year old plays video games when he could be
at Yard House at 2pm with the rest of the Kings and Blackhawks fans?

 

 

Sunglasses inside?
Check.
Jersey over long sleeve collared shirt?
Check.
Guys way too old to be playing beer pong midweek?
Check.

 

Great to see the Hockee Night guys having such a lively watch party.

 

Illegal stream alert!
In all seriousness, I want to grow up to be this couple.
…I just never want this kid.
…or apparently any other family member who claims to be a Blackhawks fan.
