Hawks Playoff Game 6: Been here – done this

Dating back to their Stanley Cup clinching win over Boston in 2013, Chicago has now won seven straight Game Six playoff contests. This will be the Hawks eighth different opponent as they previously won versus DET, BOS, STL, MIN, LAK, NAS and ANA by a 27-15 margin. The total goals is slightly misleading as 5-1 (Blues '14) and 5-2 (Ducks '15) wins are sprinkled in with five one-goal games. This is a classic “been there – done that” scenario as Chicago's core group has played in most of those matches - including goaltender Corey Crawford who has a sparkling 8-1 record in Game Six battles.

Tampa Bay: Bruised Bolts are in tough at the Madhouse on Madison 

During Game Six 2015 NHL postseason action, Tampa Bay won 5-2 in Detroit during quarterfinal action, took out the Canadians 4-1 in Montreal during the East semifinal series and then lost 7-3 on their home pond to New York in the Conference final. Despite a strange undisclosed injury, Lightning goaltender Ben Bishop is expected to start tonight. Tyler Johnson and Nikita Kucherov are also less than 100% but they are expected to start as well. While all of those injuries are concerning, Johnson's hand injury hinders the Bolts in the faceoff circle where the Hawks hold a huge 172-123 advantage over the first five games of the NHL Championship series. Though the Bolts have battled hard....

Chicago vs Tampa Bay 2015 NHL Stanley Cup Game Six Call: A funny thing happened 77 years ago on April 10, 1938. Being as the Black Hawks (not the Blackhawks) were huge underdogs versus the Maple Leafs, the Stanley Cup wasn’t even shipped from Toronto to Chicago for the Hawks Cup clinching win. Lord Stanley’s Mug is in the Madhouse tonight and we fully expect to see it skated around the raucous United Center by Hawks Captain Jonathan Towes & Crew. Bucking a major trend, the first five games of this series were all decided by one goal, we are backing Chicago with a 500 unit wager on the puck line price posted at the TopBet online sportsbook.
