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.
