Zawaski: Random Thoughts From Stadium Series Finale

People who cover sports often try to find larger meanings in 60 minutes, nine innings, or two halves. “Was that a statement game?” they ask. Grand conclusions are reached based on a single outcome. Over the last 12 hours or so, we’ve heard and read many opinions stating that the Blackhawks 5-1 win over the Penguins was some grand announcement to the NHL that the Blackhawks are the best team in hockey. Others proclaim that Jonathan Toews’ three point performance means that the Blackhawks’ captain is a better player than Pittsburgh’s Sidney Crosby, who was held without a point in the Stadium Series finale.
