Snatching The Cup From The Jaws of Defeat

Dramatic shifts in the scoreboard is not supposed to happen in hockey.  In baseball, a grand slam can flip flop the score.  In hoops, a team winning by two can be brought to their knees by their opponents long range jump shot.  Just ask the Denver Broncos what can happen to the complexion of a football game when there is an 80 yard pass completion.  But hockey is supposed to be different, but not last night.  With the Boston Bruins just 1:16 seconds from forcing a Game Seven, the Chicago Blackhawks scored the tying and winning goals just 17 seconds apart allowing the Blackhawks to hoist the Stanley Cup for the second time since 2010.

    The term “sideburnophobic ” is demeaning to the Pacers. Perhaps they think that shaving sideburns is the best thing to do, and do so not out of fear or hatred. I personally embrace the sideburn lifestyle, but still encourage a respectful dialogue.
