This remains the single greatest tradition in all of sports.
The handshake at the end of a Stanley Cup playoff series, sadly, occurred at the Xcel last night after the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Minnesota Wild 2-1 in overtime.
We noticed something as the Blackhawks left the ice. Fans were still in the stands, cheering their team.
Hockey fans are the best.
About the blogger
Bob Collins retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
