Yes, both teams are now tied in the hockey playoffs for the Stanley Cup. So what does this mean?
It is going to be a long and exciting series.
Everybody knows which team that I am a fan of so I’m not going to pimp their skills while badmouthing the other team. For both hockey clubs to get this far in the playoffs, it speaks for itself. Luck, talent, and passion for the game brought these two teams together. Eventually they will proclaim a winner. The loser will go home with thoughts of reaching the playoffs next year.
This is the way of hockey, or any professional sport, where the players push their minds and bodies to the extremes for their games. And then, if you as a fan can be lucky, you will bear witness to that rare moment when a player who has reached his limit will push past every boundary within themselves and find the extra bit of strength needed to win.
That’s when a player becomes a legend.
Win or lose - this is why I watch (or listen) to the game.
