1000 Hurts – Hawks 4, Sens 4 (Hawks Win Ants In The Pants)

Box Score
Event Summary
War on Ice

While certainly the most sloppy game the Hawks have played so far this year, it was far and away the most eventful, with four blown leads before things needed to be settled individually. That’s how fickle and weird regular season hockey can be. Contrasting directly against Tuesday night’s near-impeccable performance against the challenging Ducks and walking away with nothing, the Hawks came right back around tonight and sloppily got out of Ottawa with two points. But that, so the saying goes, is why they play 82 of these goddamn things.

BULLSHIT BULLSHIT BULLSHIT: Silver Seven Sens, Bonks Mullet

The Hawks begin the Ontario two-step tonight in the capital, or actually outside the capital because the Canadian Tire Center is nowhere near Ottawa. It’s like in a field or something. called Kanata. And also, Canadian Tire doesn’t actually sell tires. I mean, it does sell tires but it’s much more like a Target than a Pep Boys. I know, they’re weird up there. Anyway, now that that’s out of the way…

Taking The Morality Out Of Line Construction

I got two turntables and a microphone. Wait, no, that’s not right. I got three scoring lines and a checking line. That’s more like it.

Yes, I’m being a bit silly, but there is an important point to make by doing this. If you are going to be a good deejay, you need your turntables and your microphone to be in good working order. Each is as important as the other to accomplish your goal. Hockey is no different when it comes to the lines put on the ice. For much of hockey’s history, teams have really had two scoring lines, a checking line, and a line of, well, scrubs, to be honest. Not every team every season, but a lot of teams.

Someone’s Gonna Pay: Ducks 1 – Hawks 0

Box Score

Event Summary

War On Ice

It seems like a recurring dream, where the Hawks fling rubber like monkey feces at an opposing goalie for 60 straight minutes, and yet can’t seem to make any twine ripple. Yet this one feels like the first time a goalie really had to channel Houdini to get out of some of the jams the Hawks put him in, as John Gibson was excellent. Throw in a couple posts rang as well, and you get yet another frustrating night. Still, there’s hardly much to complain about, as the Hawks were just a shade better than the Ducks everywhere but in goal (and they weren’t much worse there either).
