    Chicago Blackhawks left wing Bryan Bickell (29) checks Nashville Predators center Mike Ribeiro along the boards during the first period in Game 4 of an NHL Western Conference hockey playoff series Tuesday, April 21, 2015, in Chicago.

    For many diehard Blackhawks fans, Tuesday night’s game was filled with excitement, suspense, and a lot of yawns.

    The game, which ended early Wednesday morning after Brent Seabrook scored the winning goal in triple overtime, lasted nearly five hours and had many fans staying up well beyond their bedtimes to watch.

    For the many fans likely wishing they could call in “hockey,” er "late," to work, the Blackhawks have you covered.

    The team tweeted out an excuse note signed by “The Chicago Blackhawks” to excuse any lateness or sleepiness for those who were “up too late celebrating the win.”

    For that, and for the glorious goal that ended Game 4 with a big win, many Hawks fans say “Thank you.”
