Poll No. 2: How much are you enjoying fan-free playoff hockey for the Blackhawks?
Upshot: Starting with Game 1 of their series against the Oilers in Edmonton, Alberta, the Hawks proved they weren’t about to get run over like an empty milk carton in the path of a cement truck. That alone has made them a fun postseason watch. It undoubtedly would be even more exciting under traditional circumstances, but voters are digging things as they are. “As long as Pat [Foley] and Eddie [Olczyk] are doing the games,” @MGoldstick commented, right on the money.
