I can't cheer out loud here at home for the Hawks. My husband is a lifelong rabid Flyers fan. Our neighbours have a Hawks banner in the window that faces our house, just to tease him.
I thought pulling Leighton was a huge mistake (and for the record, so did the husband). I haven't paid much attention to the Hawks for years, except to take note of our hometown boy Jonathan Toews...but I'm loving Niemi's play. Gotta love an aggressive, ballsy goaltender. I didn't think I'd be much into this series but I'm looking forward to game 2.
