The Daily Hilario: Puck Luck & Chelsea U21s

Mike Hewitt

Your daily dose of off-topic shenanigans. Now with one more Chelsea-related bit if business.

I have new favorite phrase: "puck luck."

Jeremy Roenick (*swoon*) used it several times in the NBC studios while describing the action in last night's game 6 between the Wild and the Blackhawks.  The Wild weren't having any.  And so in a game where the 'Hawks were second-best for large stretches, they stole an overtime, series-clinching victory, thanks once again to a bit of Patrick Kane Hazardian magic.  The Blackhawks are now in the Western Conference finals for the fourth time in six years.  That's about as much of a dynasty as you can get these days.

I love playoff hockey.
