Let’s start off with a moment of silence.
Thanks. Well, I hate to say it but the Blackhawks got swept by the Predators last night. To be honest, I saw it coming. The Hawks just couldn’t pull it together and the Predators were the stronger team.
I am always refreshing twitter during these games to see how people are feeling. Here are reactions from the ‘twitterverse’ to this devastating sweep:
Some were heartbroken:

@alexis_b82 Well, we need a bit of cooldown from celebrating the demise of the Blackhawks.

Some mourned their bracket (I feel you, girl):

And some stayed loyal and positive:
No worries… now we know who is winning the Stanley Cup next year. Chicago Blackhawks

@88PKane Great 2016-2017 season! Every team can’t win. I was sure to wear my Blackhawks gear today and it made a lot of people smile!

I think it’s fair to say that a lot of people were shocked by the outcome. To be honest, by Game 2 I was doubting they would make the comeback. Nashville had them beat from the beginning. But this isn’t the end of an era. The Blackhawks will be back and they’ll be hungry.
Until then, stay gold, Chicago. Stay gold.
