Last night was one of those games where I had to get tipsy before it even started so that I didn’t stress vomit at puck drop. I can’t even imagine the mess I’ll be when the Stars are in the same situation. I have to apologize for the lackluster recap, as I’m still recovering from my exhausting day yesterday.
Blackhawks v Lightning Final Score: Hawks 2 – Bolts 1 Series: Hawsk 3 – Bolts 2
In lucky ep 13, the Ladies try to trade for Brent Seabrook, talk the Stanley Cup Final, create an app for psychopaths, go over some of the proposed changes for next season, and do all the hockey fancasting our listeners could ever want.
Let’s clear something up really quick, lest you get the wrong idea. The Hawks aren’t fated to win when I’m in charge of the recaps, it’s just that when Merrin is on the schedule, they always lose. Besides, 1-1 is nothing to the Hawks (and we all kind of like the Lightning anyway. Seriously though, is there anyone who doesn’t like them? They’re young, adorable, play good, fast hockey…do you hate puppies too? What kind of a monster are you?)

I always love the first game in any series because while the stakes are high, no matter the outcome, both teams have a legitimate shot at the title. During the first game, I can actually enjoy hockey and life in general. It’s all just downhill from there.
Blackhawks v Lightning Final Score: Hawks 2 – Bolts 1 Series: Hawks 1 – Bolts 0
So when we were making the blogging schedule for this week, Merrin was originally supposed to do this recap. “But Carolyn,” she said, “Every time I do a Blackhawks game recap, they lose. You have to do it.”
“Sure,” I replied. But in my head I was thinking omg that’s just a coincidence. But this is sports, and nothing is EVER just a coincidence, clearly.
This episode, the Ladies talk hypocrisy in hockey fan bases, scout the UFA field for the Dallas Stars, Merrin almost vomits all over Carolyn (twice), and their brain-twin powers activate as they try to pick an Under 23 All Star roster for this past season.
