As the crow flies, Third Rail Tavern is exactly one mile (a straight shot up Madison Street) from the United Center.
As a Saturday night visit proved, the place is like a smaller version of the Madhouse on Madison during Hawks’ games.
A sea of red flooded the bar for Game 5, and fans had plenty of opportunities to collectively chant “Let’s go Hawks! Let’s go Hawks! Boston sucks!” as Kane and company put away the Bruins with a score of 3 to 1.
