I don't know exactly what that pose was, but when Dustin Byfuglien scored the winning goal in overtime last night, he raised his hands and, well... lifted a leg as he skated by the absolutely crazed Chicago Blackhawk home crowd.
It was a truly magic moment. But you know Dustin, you could take a lesson or two from Patrick Kane or something when it comes to the after goal "thing". (Not that I'm a big fan of any of that, especially in the NFL.)
Ahhhh, just kiddin'. I think he was about to run into the boards so he kept his leg out of the way.
In any case, THE BLACKHAWKS ARE NOW ONE WIN AWAY FROM THE STANLEY CUP FINALS!
And really, Byfuglien was one of many hard working Hawks last night. Certainly don't want to downplay the winning goal, but the whole team effort is never more apparent than when you're watching the Hawks.
Honestly, on a maturity scale for being a hockey-watching fan? I'm about a 1 year old. A baby. Brand new. Can't even walk yet, let alone really talk it. But I'm hooked right now, and it's sooooo much fun.
How about Dave Bolland's breakaway goal? How loud were you screaming? How about his pass to Buff?
Meanwhile down in Texas, Ted Lilly continues his steady climb back to BAMF as he shuts down the big-hitting Rangers for 6.2 innings giving up just 6 hits and 2 runs, but the Cub hitters only manage to get 1 dinky run and lose 1-2.
Really frustrating watching the Cubs try to hit.
Nobody on this team has "clutch" anywhere in their nickname, and it's such a shame because they do get on base. It's like...1 more hit at the right time and their record could be totally different.
Oh well, it's another day and tonight we'll see Randy Wells (3-2, 4.13) against Derek Holland (2-0, 2.38).
