Found June 14, 2013 on Bacon Sports:
What a contest!!! Stanley Cup Finals tickets brought out the best in Blackhawks fans and the play on the ice was more amazing than Kate Upton doing the Cat Daddy. Thanks to everyone who submitted an entry. We asked for creativity and you Baconators did not disappoint. We had dudes dressed as chicks which is the white version of Tyra Banks, mascots talking **** to Bruins fans and Revolutionary War re-enactments. These were kick ass submissions that would make even Terrell Owens proud of his quarterback. However, we do have to take issue with one thing. There was not a single entry involving bacon. None. Zero. Zilch. Had someone even held up a piece of bacon in a picture or video their odds of being selected as the winner would have increased by about 5000%. Bacon is in our freaking name. This is so obvious that someone on Craiglist could have picked up on it. I digress. What started as a simple Craigslist post, blew up into an awesome giveaway for a great group of fans. Here’s the winning video from Ashley Lovinelli plus some entries that definitely deserved some dap. The Winner Ashley came strong with a great combination of Blackhawks love, using many Hawks references only real fans would know and her creativity using them was a great mix of awesomeness. Congrats to her for winning the tickets and enjoying two games of hockey in one night. Here is the best of the Rest Rich Funk was kind of enough to take us back to our roots when the Blackhawks won the Revolutionary War for us. Thanks to those two Canadians, Shaw and Keith, for coming down to help the US beat the British. Very solid. Spiderhawk’s entry was totally awesome. Thanks to Brad for riding the pink line with no shame on the way to work. Reminded me of the crazy idea that Vinny Del Negro could be an NBA coach. A pair of lovely young ladies brought it with a Thrift shop “Hawks” remix.  That is quite a thrift shop they shot their video in. Dudes dressed as chicks can be disturbing but because its the cup, it is freaking awesome. Here is the video from our contest that even Kelly Kapowski got jealous of. Again, thanks for the huge respone to our Blackhawks Stanley Cup Finals Game 1 giveaway. It was a huge success thanks to all of you. The submissions were great and please look forward to more contests involving awesome **** from Bacon Sports.

Stanley Cup Finals Game 1 Recap: Chicago Blackhawks edge Boston Bruins in Triple OT, 4-3

Going into this series, I always thought that there would be a couple of thrilling overtime games. Little did I know that game one would be a daunting 112 minutes of tough ice time before a winner would prevail.  This game was the fifth-longest game in Stanley Cup history, which is mind-boggling to think about. Game one of this series was exactly what most thought it would be, a...

His leg was in a fortuitous enough position...

Torey Krug’s shine has worn off, but should he be benched?

Going into Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final, the Bruins coaching staff will be faced with a decision that they probably never envisioned having to make – to bench rookie defenseman Torey Krug, or not to bench rookie defenseman Torey Krug? The 22-year old Krug burst onto the scene for the Bruins during their Eastern Conference Semifinals series against the Rangers, during which Krug...

GARTH: Shawt It Out Loud

Andrew Shaw will never have to buy another beer in the Windy City ever again. Nor a cup of coffee, either. The Belleville native scored one of the most memorable and dramatic goals in NHL Stanley Cup history in the wee hours of Thursday morning. Shaw ended the triple overtime classic with the flick of his wrists. It was nearly 1:30am in the east when Shaw had the presence of...

Jaromir Jagr Screams to Heavens After Hitting Crossbar With Shot in Overtime (GIF)

Jaromir Jagr is certainly feeling that stress in Game 2, after he hit the crossbar just over a minute into overtime against the Chicago Blackhawks. After the near miss, Jagr — who hasn’t scored yet in the playoffs — let out his frustration with an angry yell to the sky. Check it out in the GIF below.

Late into the night, the Bruins drop game one

Twenty-three years ago, the Boston Bruins opened their Stanley Cup Finals against Edmonton by playing a triple-overtime game. I was still over a year away from even being born, but as a fan of the Boston Bruins, I know the story. The Bruins dropped game one at home in what ended up being the longest game in Stanley Cup Final history. By the time the game ended, everyone just wanted...

Blackhawks' Keith welcomes heavy workload

If Chicago's Duncan Keith was winded after playing nearly 50 minutes in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals, well, he had time to catch his breath by Friday. The defenseman shrugged off the heavy load he logged Wednesday night in the triple-overtime thriller that the Blackhawks won 4-3. ''It's obviously a long game, but I feel comfortable,'' Keith said.

Ty Anderson: Horton doubt puts pressure on bottom-six

Injured on a Boston power-play in triple-overtime, perennial playoff hero Nathan Horton didn’t look like a man ready to play hockey any time soon. Clutching his shoulder, skating off, and not returning in what’d end as a B’s loss on a double-deflection from the Blackhawks’ Andrew Shaw, dropping a marathon Game 1 at the United Center, a return to the ice on Friday...
