Can The Blackhawks & Antti Niemi Stop The Shark Attack??
What a road it's been for the Chicago Blackhawks franchise since the strike year of 2004. A franchise that was voted the worst run franchise in professional sports has morphed themselves into the hottest ticket in town. A ton of credit is due to a ton of people that took a team that could not draw flies into one of the top teams in the National Hockey League.
With yesterday's 5-1 win over the Vancouver Canucks placing the Hawks in the Western Conference Finals for the second consecutive year, I wonder if all the questions we have about this team have been answered yet. With stellar defense, team speed, depth, and great goaltending so far this playoffs, I believe only one question remains and it is a question we have all had all year long.
Can Antti Niemi beat the San Jose Sharks?
