Tonight is an important game for the Blackhawks. They are down 2 games to 1 against the St. Louis Blues, and if they win this game, they will tie the series. The Blackhawks are, in my opinion, the best Chicago sports team. They have won many Stanley cups and consistently have great seasons. Even when it looks like the Hawks are on a losing streak, they come back stronger and ready to win. Nothing can keep the players down, even injuries. I have been lucky enough to attend a few Hawks game with my dad, who is a huge hockey fan. Blackhawks games are the best sporting events to attend. You can feel the excitement from all of the fans surrounding the rink. Seeing the game in person is a whole different experience than watching it on TV. I think it is so much more fun to attend the game in person; it is something that cannot be replicated on TV. Fans feed off the energy of other fans, and the cheering is infectious. The players are amazingly talented, and each one brings their own unique skills to the team. Coach Q does a great job determining line ups as the players work well together and play off of each other's strengths. I like all of the players and think they are exceptional hockey players, but my favorite player has always been Patrick Kane. I think he has a true gift for the game, especially considering how good he was from such a young age. Bringing home another Stanley Cup would be amazing, but I think people do not realize how difficult this is, especially in consecutive years. Some players have gone their entire careers without ever having won a Stanley Cup. This proves how great the Hawks are. I am looking forward to watching the game tonight and hopefully seeing a Blackhawks win. Let's go Hawks!!!
