Game one of the SCF starts with a bang.

That was some craaaazy hockey, if only the Canadiens could have chased Michael Leighton from the net...
The Hawks look like a very good team, the Flyers aren't slouches, but the Blackhawks have some major firepower, as well as some grinders who could probbaly be first liners in Montreal.
Dave Bolland is a tank, I remember him from his London Knights days, was still a hard working guy who could turn the firepower on when he needed to.
Patrick Sharp absolutely sniped one over Leighton's shoulder for one of the goals.
Does anyone else notice that Arron Asham is slowly putting together quite a respectable playoff in terms of points. Does anyone else remember when he was a Hab?
Does anyone else remember the guy we traded him for?
The Powerful Pole himself, Mariusz Czerkawski!!!
After watching last night's game, I'm going to go out on a limb and say Hawks in 6.
They have all the tools right now, and it's not like Michael Leighton and Brian Boucher trump Anti Niemi in goal, it's kinda a tossup when the three guys weren't playing in the league regularly last year.
Considering how low the cap will be next year, this might be Chicago's chance, a perfect storm where they must capitalize and knock the Flyers overboard.
Gotta love those nautical terms. Arr-Arr-Arr.
