Ducks-Blackhawks Makes No Sense And It's Exhilarating

Waking up the next morning, it’s still kind of hard to believe the Ducks won that game. After choking away a three-goal lead amassed before the Blackhawks registered their first shot, and after conceding two goals to Jonathan Toews in the game’s final 1:50, Chicago completing the comeback felt like a fait accompli,… » 5/26/15 11:50am 5/26/15 11:50am
