    I am a Hawks fan. However I know one of the Ducks players (Matt Beleskey). I would love it if he was to win a Stanley Cup ring but my first love is the Hawks.

    The Conference final stands at 2-2 and Matty got a brilliant goal in game 4.

    Tradition has it that the Hawks win the cup in the years that my wife and I come across the pond to see them play (2010, 2013). We came over in 2015 so they have to win the cup this year as well.

    My daughter's boyfriend will be thrilled to hear that--he's in Chicago.

    Can't mess with tradition! Perhaps you can convince your friend to get traded to the Hawks before your next trip here!

    Split your time. You aren't the president. No one is covering your fandom. Your friends will understand.

    Hawks go through in game 7!

    Beleskey got a couple of goals in the series including the OT game winner in game 5. So I'm pretty satisfied.
    Now just the Lightning to beat for the cup.

    Go Lightning. Was born near Tampa and the only NHL game I ever saw was there.

    I knew you would be happy!

    Now if the Cavs can pull it off, my husband's relatives in Cleveland will be happy.
