Listen, Blackhawks — especially the “stars” of this team.
Stop making the children do all your dirty work and score some damn goals.
Could you try not to get swept, at least? That would be awesome.
WIN, DAMN YOU.

Jonathan Toews, CHI: “We have to find a way to rejuvenate ourselves and be excited going home. And, we’ve got to use that crowd. There’s no looking back now. We’ve got to go. We’re running out of time. We’ve got to play our best hockey now.” (nhl.com)
Keith Ballard, VAN: â€œI don’t think it matters whether itâ€™s Chicago, Anaheim, Washington or whoever you play, one of the objectives is to shut down their big players. Just like they try to keep Hank and Danny [Sedin] off the board. They play Toews and Kane and Sharp and Hossa a ton. They were out there in the first period every other shift. The main thing for us to make them play in their own end to tire them out. If they’re going to play that much, make them play in their own end.” (Vancouver Sun)
