I've got some pregame reading for ya.

In case you missed it, Sean McIndoe aka @DownGoesBrown rated the last 20 Cup-handing-off ceremonies based on how awkward they were. Unsurprisingly, it's wonderful.

Jonathan Toews and Patrice Bergeron are both expected to play as of this writing. Bergeron was speculated to have had a spleen issue. If you want Twitter's foremost expert on spleens take a look at the last 45 hours or so from @seangentille.

There you have it. How do spleens work? FUCKING MAGNETS.

Chicago can end it tonight (or tomorrow, depending on where you live and whether we go 4OT or 5) in Boston. I'm sure Jack Edwards would have a Revolutionary War reference on hand if he were calling the game, but instead we get DAHHHHHC so settle in with a good pair of earmuffs and enjoy what could be the last hockey til September with us.
