The angle was not so good if you were watcthing.
The puck seemed to fly out of nowhere, up up up and over a leaping Wild guy.
But what happened was Johnny Oduya, right up next to the wall, bounce passed the puck like a football over a linebacker and connected with Victor Stalberg who kinda ran a slant.
And then Victor passes it to Bryan Bickle who looks like he's gonna shoot but holds onto the puck, Wild goalie Josh Harding totally bites, and then Bickle's got the easy backhand for the goal, an overtime win, and playoff glory.
Blackhawks take game one 2-1 over the Minnesota Wild.
At the exact same time, not so awesome was happening at Wrigley.
Edwin Jackson continues his uneven performances and gives up 11 hits and 8 runs in 4.2.
He started off so well, striking out 3 of the first 4 Padres, then they started smacking Edwin around.
Cubs 7 Padres 13.
Oh well, it's another day, and it's gorgeous out.
