My friend Steve of Thus Spake Styopa recently relayed the story of our eventful trip to Chicago in April 1982 to attend two NHL playoff games between our beloved Minnesota North Stars (later to depart to Dallas) and the hated Chicago Blackhawks. Rather than write my own recollections (which are somewhat fuzzy due to the amount of alcohol consumed) I will just link to Steve's admirable posts.
