Blackhawks fever rages on ahead of Game 3
The Chicago Blackhawks take on the Boston Bruins tonight in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals and Blackhawks merchandise is flying off the shelves at Gunzo’s in the West Loop.
Wally “Gunzo” Humeniuk opened the first store in 1963 two years after he played back up goalie for the 1961 Stanley Cup Champs. Their specialty is cool unique hats.
Over at Brendan’s Pub, the specialty is Bruins fans. Stephen Hill is a Boston transplant whose “second” favorite team is the Blackhawks. He expects his Lakeview East bar to be packed tonight with Bruins fans.
Game 3 starts at 7 p.m.
