TAKE THE POWER BACK:

Good win for the Hawks Wednesday night.  A necessary win.  It's now a three-game series for the Stanley Cup.  Crawford had an amazing game, ManChild scored the winner, and Captain Serious finally got a goal as well.  Hossa got his 17th point of the playoffs, a new career high.  There was plenty of luck, too, including a ridiculous block with the stick from Seabass:

OH, HUNGARY...

Hungary U20 were eliminated in the Round of 16 of the World Cup, by Serbia.  Final score: 2-1.  Which doesn't sound too bad.  Except Serbia's equalizing goal came in second half stoppage time; their winning goal with just a minute left in extra time.  And just what a hilarious goal it was.  Serbia played all of bonus football a man down, too.  Sads.

Hungary's goalkeeper, György Székely, looks a decent talent — he was in 1860 Munich's academy before returning to Hungary in January, a decision he's come to regret despite getting included in the U20 squad — and leading goalscorer Bence Mervó probably earned himself more playing time at his mid-table Hungarian first division club.
