Game Thread - Detroit Red Wings vs Chicago Blackhawks

Once more unto the breach.

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

The two most likeable teams left in the 2013 NHL playoffs face off tonight in a winner-take-all Game 7 matchup at the United Center in Chicago.

The "Madhouse" should be amped as the Blackhawks carry a 2 game winning streak onto home ice against the Red Wings, who have failed twice in their efforts to eliminate the Hawks after going up 3-1 in the series.

The original six matchup has given us all of what it promised to and more. These two teams have been rivals for a long time, and with Detroit moving east next year, is there a more fitting way is to end it than a Game 7? I don't think so.

The sad part is that one of these two great teams will be gone after tonight.
