The Chicago Blackhawks vs St. Louis Blues series ended tonight in a do-or-die Game 7. Fortunately for Blues fans, the final win of the first round went to their team, after losing a 3-1 series lead but making up for it in the end. Let’s recap some of Twitter’s reactions.
Chin up, Hawks fans, with a team that challenged the Blues to a Game 7, you have lots to be proud of.

On another note—literally, Blues fans, or just fans that did not want Chicago to win again, did not hold back on the festivities:

Now, something that Blackhawks fans, Blues fans, and the rest of us seem to agree on this year? See for yourself. These were some of the greatest reactions on Twitter about the refs during the series:
This Blues/Blackhawks series is like the game in Remember The Titans where the refs are blatantly screwing the Titans, but they win anyway

@NHL We already know you love the Blackhawks. We watched the refs give them the game courtesy of you.

The refs just handed us the short end of the stick and shoved the long end up our ass. What a joke. @NHL

Close call! 48% of voters will be disappointed, either because their NHL Bracket got destroyed in the first round, or because their favorite team is eliminated.
Lastly, well, we were all just thankful for another playoff series that left us on the edge of our seats. Thank you Chicago Blackhawks and St. Louis Blues for hosting a terrific series.
Blues and Hawks by far best series. Every game has been great to watch

This Hawks Blues game is another reason why I love playoff hockey. Incredible finale to cap off an incredible series.
