Chicago Blackhawks Win Again, Near Terrifying Upset

Okay, St. Louis Blues fans, this just got serious: Having won 4-3 in overtime Sunday night, the eighth-seeded Chicago Blackhawks have now forced a game seven in their first-round series against the No. 1 Vancouver Canucks. That means that on Tuesday the Blackhawks could do something we'll have to hear about for the remainder of the 2011 NHL Playoffs: Knock out a top seed after going down three-nil to start the series.

As a fan of the 2004 St. Louis Cardinals, let me remind you that this hurts.

In "The bitter man's guide to the playoffs", gallagher notes that "while the Hawks are seemingly just hanging out in Robert Luongo's head and a total collapse of the President Trophy winning Canucks would be fun to watch, you won't catch me rooting for the Hawks."

If I had to guess, that was the official Blues-fan position prior to Sunday night's game making the total collapse of the Canucks that much more plausible. Now I think there might be some more direct rooting for Roberto Luongo in St. Louis Tuesday night...
