NHL Playoffs Open Thread: WCF Game 6

SB Nation 2014 NHL Playoff Bracket

Who gets to face the Rangers in the Final?

FRIDAY MAY 30, 2014

9:00 PM ET

According to the media from both sides, the Hawks won game 5 because they wanted it more or were the more desperate team. Apparently, tonight the Hawks will rely on their mental toughness tonight instead of, you know... hockey skill.

I don't think the Kings should let this one go back to Chicago, but what do I know? I've only watched one recent game six showdown where the Hawks were down 3-2 and won a road game to earn a game seven at home. The sample size thing here is enormous.

No matter what happens, the final series will start next Wednesday, so I guess if you wanted to be greedy, you could root for Chicago just so we could get a game seven between now and the start of that series. I'm not going to do that, but I'm not here to tell you how to live your life. I'm not your father, I'm more of the drunk uncle type who will show you his stash of bottle rockets and teach you how to hide dirty magazines from authority figures.
