The Stanley Cup is a beautiful, remarkable thing, but the 2013 Stanley Cup Championship banner will hang at the United Center forever, no matter what. The moment they won, the parade, the rally, the convention, they all take a back seat to the Blackhawks banner raising (see photo gallery below).
Leave it to the Blackhawks organization to give every fan a LED bracelet which was synced to light up with music during the banner ceremony.
It seems the lower body stiffness that kept Crawford out of Saturday's preseason game got to him tonight. He was able to stand on his head when the Hawks needed him the most in the 3rd during a 5 on 3 powerplay though! Oduya had an incredibly strong game and scored the game-winning goal on his 32nd birthday.
They need a little work on the PK, as they sat back instead of pressuring the points which lead to last season's success, but I like what I saw overall.
