CHICAGO – It doesn’t get any better than this.
Everything on the line tonight in St. Louis.
Here in Chicago, Hawks fans will gather around the biggest TV they can find.
There are some big ones here at The Ogden. Bars love a night like this. The beer is chilled. Ogden has ordered 300 pounds of wings; they’ve been smoking them in batches for two days.
Many bars are taking reservations, just to make sure they can accommodate everyone.
It’s a Monday. It’s a work day. People are just now getting off and starting to think about hockey. Chicagoans still have time to get to a party before the puck drops.
WGN caught up with a few Hawks fans prior to Monday’s game. They are nervous but optimistic about a Hawks victory.
The Odgen will get crowded soon. They’re one of the official Blackhawks bars. No more reservation for tonight; they’re expecting a full house.
