I feel I need to make a little disclamer, I write a Blackhawks blog therefore I am a Blackhawks fan. I will try to keep everything neutral but occasionally my true colors will shine through, I'm sorry that is just the way it is going to be. I wrote a little piece in the sidebar but think I should mention it here. If you have a blog post that is on your blog, or if you don't write a blog and have something that you want to get out there email me. My email address is on the side or if you hit the email me link on the side it will enter my address into a new email in your default email. I am the editor but it is in no way just my blog, I will write until things pick up but I am always looking for other people to add things. If you are a Blackhawks fan great I would love to post your opinions, if you are a Flames fan send things to me I would love to hear the other side of the series. If you are not a fan of either team and your team isn't in the playoffs so you picked one of these teams as your playoff team, I would love to hear what you think. If your team is in the playoffs but in a different series and you noticed something about this series shoot me an email. As always I will link to your blog if you send me something.
The Flames were never behind in game one except when it really counted, when the red light went on when Marty Havlat scored in overtime.
The Blackhawks got off to a slow start but ended up winning the game and that is what really matters (for them at least). Both teams looked slow at times but overall I thought it was a good game and this set the stage for what could be an interesting series.
I had said in my five questions that the first game would be very important to the Hawks, now we get to see if I am right.
