The post-Game 7 handshake line between the Chicago Blackhawks and the Los Angeles Kings mimicked the vibe of the series: Professional and efficient. 

OK, it wasn’t a perfect microcosm, as the series went to a Game 7 overtime and the handshake line lasted about a minute.

While it didn’t have any clear moments of Milan Lucic charm, there was a moment that caught our eye when Andrew Shaw and Jonathan Quick shook hands, in which it appeared Shaw snapped his neck back to catch something Quick said.

Let’s just say that Quick’s interaction with Shaw’s linemate Brandon Saad was more cordial than it was with the notorious Blackhawks crease crasher. 

Eh, maybe it’s just a USA vs. Canada thing …
