Detroit Red Wings Clinch Western Conference Title

The Detroit Red Wings were victors over the Chicago Blackhawks in tonight’s Game 5 of the Western Conference Final Series.  It was the third OT game of the series.  What a game!!  The Blackhawks were phenomenal and the goaltending in both goals was unbelievable. 🙂

The Wings won 2-1 and took home the Campbell Trophy that was awarded for being the Western Conference champs.  Henrik Zetterberg didn’t touch it.   (In contrast, Sidney Crosby touched the Prince of Wales trophy which was awarded the Pittsburgh Penguins upon clinching the Eastern Conference. He’s hoping there will be a turnaround from last year when he didn’t touch it and lost the series.)

The final game of the Western Conference series was played at The Joe (Joe Louis Arena) in Detroit.  We all know what that means…THE HOCKEY SONG!!!  By the way, a BIG “thank you” needs to go out to the announcers of the game – Mike “Doc” Emrick and Eddie Olczyk (sp?).  They did not speak during the playing of  “The Hockey Song”. How fantastic was that?!  Rock on!

So, without further ado…..

The Hockey Song

Oh, the good old hockey game,

Is the best game you can name

And the best game you can name

Is the GOOOOD OLDDDDD HOCKEEEEEY GAAAAAME!!
