Former Wings Kopecky & Hossa were two of the difference makers tonight in the first game win for the Blackhawks of the Stanley Cup games. Thank you, Detroit!

Patrick Kane doesn't hop in a taxi.....
He will cost you that wonderful silver cup. Take it to the bank. 3rd year, 3rd Finals, 3rd team cost the Stanley Cup.
First off, last year his shoulder was being held on by chicken wire and hopes. Second, is making three cup finals in three years bad?
I loved Hossa in a Wings uni. I was sad to see him go and I think he finally breaks through this year. I still hate the Blackhawks.
Curse will live on this year.
It's not even a contest:

Just like your avatar you are dead on.
Marion Hossa is now +12 in the playoffs-quite the albatross.
Another tremendous difference is ownership. Rocky Wirtz is everything his Father was not. Hawks fans have reason to be excited this year and many more to come. The man sits with the fans during games!
Lest we forget former Wolverine John Madden.
Wow, you figured out that people get traded in professional sports? Amazing. By the way, Chelios was a Hawk before he was a Wing if you want to travel down that path. Also, why do you laugh about Hossa losing in 2 finals before? He was on your team when he lost. I don't see the humor. GO HAWKS
that Marion Hossa could win the Stanley Cup without the Black Hawks winning it.
is a long ass drought. Beware the Hossa Curse.
Let's not forget about him too! He seems to fit well in that Flyers system. I'm very happy Hudler is back for next season.
I hate the Flyers even more. So, go hawks. What I find hard to believe was that Kopecky was a healthy scratch for the last five games. With the way he played in Game 1, you'd think Coach Q wasn't paying attention.
....I wonder how Quenneville feels about being Scotty B's sock puppet behind the Chicago bench?
