REPOST: One of my favorite Blackhawk Stanley Cup stories

In 1938, the 14-25-9 Chicago Blackhawks won the most improbable Stanley Cup championship in history- so improbable that nobody bothered to have the Cup there the night they won it. And one of the Hawks' stars in the series was Alfie Moore, a minor league goalie who was under contract to the other team at the time and who had prepared for the game by downing "ten or fifteen drinks."

Perhaps they should stock a case of good Canadian whisky for the nights when Corey Crawford's game isn't up to snuff.
