Cubs Curse Blackhawks

Bullpen BrianCorrespondent IApril 17, 2010

The Blackhawks did its best Cubs impersonation Friday night…losing on home-ice against Nashville 4-1.

Any coincidence the Cubs were in attendance?

Canadian native and hockey enthusiast, Ryan Dempster, set up the affair…the Cubs players sporting Hawks jerseys and cheering from a luxury suite.

Go figure the Hawks get out-classed in the opening round loss…much like the Cubs did against Los Angeles in 2008.

A playoff series in which the Cubs played under the pressure of a 97-win season and 100 years of championship futility.

Likewise, the Hawks are playing under similar pressure as the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference…it showed…and the Preds staked an early 1-0 series lead.

Perhaps the Hawks have better luck in Game 2 Sunday…at the very least, the Cubbies will be traveling to New York, and not the UC.
