Chicago Sun-Times
A hearty stew of offbeat sports and pop culture.

Is this the strangest playoff hockey video ever?

Is there a better way to celebrate the Blackhawks' first playoff berth since 2002 than dancing with your shirt off?
After years and years of being merely a blip on the Chicago sports radar, the Blackhawks -- on and off the ice -- returned in force. And, it's all good to see.

It's good to see the United Center packed.

It's good to see former legends return.

It's good to see an aggressive front-office.

It's good to see players with speed and skill.

It's good to see players mature and succeed.

It's good to see win after win.

And, it's great to finally see PLAYOFF HOCKEY return to Chicago.

So why not have a little fun? The Hawks, who open their playoff series with the Calgary Flames on Thursday, surely look like they are.

(And, I don't mean the video above in which forwards Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews, Kris Versteeg, Martin Havlat and Patrick Sharp "dance" it up.)
