1. Let's have your Stanley Cup finals prediction.
|Marc Silverman: Clear Michigan Avenue for a parade on Friday, June 28.|
|Pete McMurray: Hawks win in six and I cry like a baby (like circa 2010).|
|Ernest Wilkins: Hawks win the Cup. We all descend into a drunken rage that lasts until Halloween.|
|Elliott Serrano: There will be endless comparisons between Chicago and Boston hot dogs. (And Hawks in six!)|
|Sarah Spain: I suffer—but survive—at least three more grabbers en route to another Hawks win.|
2. Give a nickname to Corey Crawford's glove.
|Marc Silverman: Gary Payton.|
|Pete McMurray: The Love Glove, which will help Ruin the Bruins.|
|Ernest Wilkins: "Excalibur?" Nah, too nerdy. "Mjolnir?" Nah, too Norse. How about "The Mitten of Destiny?"|
|Elliott Serrano: The Crow's Nest, where dreams—and opponents' goals—go to die.|
|Sarah Spain: Goal-burglar Helper.|
3. Who's been the biggest surprise for the Hawks this postseason?
|Marc Silverman: Big Bick and his wrister. (Careful with the typos!)|
|Pete McMurray: Bickell ... now known as #BICKELL!|
|Ernest Wilkins: Bryan Bickell. He's going to be a very rich man next season. Hope it's in Chicago!|
|Elliott Serrano: Bryan "How Many Zeroes are you putting on my next check?" Bickell!|
|Sarah Spain: Ice Girl Cynthia—she's really stepped up her rink sweeping.|

|Sarah Spain: Lifetime supply of berets.|
5. If you sat through a 20-inning baseball game, how would you recover?
|Marc Silverman: If it was a Cubs or Sox 20-inning game ... you would NOT recover.|
|Pete McMurray: If it's anything like Saturday's Cubs game, I would go directly to Bernie's and drink heavily.|
|Ernest Wilkins: Watching golf? Puts me to sleep every time.|
|Elliott Serrano: A double espresso and a double-overtime hockey game to get the blood going again.|
|Sarah Spain: Why would I need to recover from a six-hour nap?|
