Oh, Blackhawks, you've captured my heart again.

What. A. Game. Last night.

Full disclosure ...

I turned on the game at the start of the third quarter after I had a meeting and the girls were in bed.

I saw the Bruins take the lead, and yet I couldn't look away.

1:16 left in regulation. The Hawks score.

No sooner had the TV analyst mentioned the possibility of another overtime in what has been a series of overtimes and said the words, "It hasn't happened yet ..." the Hawks took the lead with 58 seconds left.

At 1:17, the game was considered over. The decibel of the Bruins fans was rising. A Game 7 was staring the Hawks in the face ...

Then the Blackhawks crushed their dreams and reclaimed the Stanley Cup for Chicagoland.
