See Hockey, Win A Million Bucks

In Chicago last night, fans went home saddened by the Blackhawks’ 4-1 loss to the Minnesota Wild, except for one fan. An unidentified fan, through an Illinois lottery promotion walked away from the game with $1 million after the Wild’s Martin Havlat scored exactly at the 10 minute mark of the second period. While the other Chicagoans went home despondent, the man, who requested his name be withheld was full of happiness and also looked a little stunned after the game when he got the chance to meet Havlat.

“At least something good came out of the game,” Havlat told the winner.

During the postgame press conference when the ‘Hawks’ coach Joel Quenneville was informed about the lucky fan he had this understated statement. “He did? Good for him.”
