SM Roundup: Canada Wins Gold, Bears Vaca & KCav’s Big News


Source: Instagram Sochi2014

With the Sochi Olympics now officially over, see this Monday feels particularly heavy. Perhaps it is because the Russians ended up topping the US in the medal count (33-28), or maybe it’s the hockey hangover from the US being shut-out in the bronze medal game.

In any event, it’s time for our Blackhawks to get back in regular season mode. I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to enjoy hockey at a decent hour; those early games were beginning to get the best of me.

Even though the Americans were shut out, with six deserving Blackhawks on Team Canada, we were still happy to see Canada take the gold. The official Sochi Instagram account posted this picture after Canada’s big win. “Canada players in the Men’s Ice Hockey Gold Medal match #sochi2014 #sochi2014olympics”

Here are some of our favorite Olympic Hockey tweets for both the Men’s and Women’s teams:

Now that the games are over, all our Hawks are heading back to Chicago.
