Quote of the Day
Robin on Avi’s excitement about getting back in the lineup yesterday after missing a few games due to a knee issue:
“He probably woke up early. He might have been the Little Leaguer dressed at nine in the morning to get out here. He’s as excited as he could be.”
Hail to the Blackhawks!
Our Blackhawks are on their way to the Stanley Cup Final to meet the Tampa Bay Lightning after last night’s 5-3 triumph over the Ducks. Go Hawks.
