Getting to the Cup: Blackhawks at Ducks Game Seven Thread

New, comments

A long and grueling series comes to an end tonight, unless the Anaheim Ducks and Chicago Blackhawks play a butt load of overtimes.

It all comes down to this.

How many overtimes will be played tonight between the Anaheim Ducks and the Chicago Blackhawks? The way this series has gone, my money is on at least one.

But I'm hoping for more, because hey. Free hockey.

In a series that has seen six extra periods, two days off on Thursday and Friday should serve as a merciful respite, especially for the Blackhawks, who chose to play this series with just four active defenders.
