It Was a Long Winter… It Was a Long Season

I knew that the hockey season eventually had to end but I held out hope that the Stanley Cup Finals would go the full 7 games, but the Blackhawks had other ideas, winning their third Stanley Cup in six years, at home in front of their adoring fans. Congratulations to Coach Q & the Blackhawks. 

I’m sure that Manchester Monarch fans also wished that their season might have just lasted a little longer. After 20 years in Manchester the Monarchs finally win their first Calder Cup Championship but next season will defend their title in Ontario, California. I feel sorry for Manchester fans, but, unlike Worchester, they will have hockey next season because the parent L.A. Kings relocated their ECHL team in Ontario, CA to Manchester.

Last Two Teams Standing

Last October the 2013 – 2014 hockey season began for the 30 teams in both the American and National Hockey Leagues.

On Saturday night, June 14th, following a grueling play-off run of 26 games the L.A. King’s season ended when they hoisted the Stanley Cup for the second time in three years.

The Texas Stars season concluded on Tuesday night, June 17th, when they defeated the St. Johns Icecaps’ in overtime to win their first Calder Cup Championship.

Had the Stars – Icecaps series gone the full seven games the their last game would have been played on the 23rd of June.

Congratulations to the winners but

Hey… it’s time to Play Ball!

Go Red Sox!
