  • robondacob

    was that carcillo’s guy that walked in on the net?

    • 10thMountainFire

      I’m going to go with ‘yes’ just on general principle.

    • ahnfire

      yes.

    • DuHawk

      You noticed that too, huh?

  • 10thMountainFire

    Jesus Christ, Pierre. Babcock can’t coach the game with you in his lap, you fuck.

    Alright boys, get it back together.

    CROW, wow

  • BigHoss

    howards shutout looks nice

    • http://twitter.com/326BureauChief 326 Bureau Chief

      Indeed. It is a nice SHUTOUT he has going.

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Don’t know if the jinx will counteract all those missed opportunities in the first 30 minutes.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Hammmr, bad penalty.

  • DesertHawk

    I think that was a weak trip, am I being a homer?

  • 10thMountainFire

    Howard has a shutout. Would be a shame if he lost it.

    • http://twitter.com/326BureauChief 326 Bureau Chief

      A lowdown dirty shame if he gives up the SHUTOUT now.

  • BigHoss

    dammit hjammer

    Fuck, Hammer. You do that NOW?

    Regardless of what happens, if ANYBODY comes after Crow after today, I will CUT HIM OR HER.

  • 2883

    I don’t like Crrcillo very much

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Not on the first line. Been a disaster today.

      • 2883

        Not on any line… the Hawks don’t need him

    Get Carcillo off the first line! I’m fucking done with him.

    Good job, Oduya.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Too much one and done for the Hawks.

    • Flavius

      I’ve only watched the Wings a few times this year, but this is easily the best I’ve seen them play defensively

      • MattC86

        Yeah, they are suffocating in terms of the blocks and active sticks. Like playing against the Hawks.

  • http://www.facebook.com/michael.scott.549221 Michael Scott

    It’s one of those games.

  • DesertHawk

    I’m going to have an aneurysm

    • Z-man19

      Go to the hospital first

      • DesertHawk

        Haven’t missed a game, haven’t lost yet.

    Hey, Wings Fans? HI! You know that Hossa FEEDS OFF YOUR HATE, right?

  • ahnfire

    Hossa just whiffed on a shot?

    well fuck, this period is not good.

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      I suspect Black Magic.

      • steeg of their own

        No, black magic is Kane.

  • 2883

    FUCK

  • DesertHawk

    Howard… :’(

  • CozBullsFan

    fuck

  • http://twitter.com/llUrbanAchiever Jeff Lebowski

    What happened to Toews there?

  • Daze55

    Only Detroit could make us look sloppy as hell.

    • MattC86

      They’re playing fantastically defensively. Take note, boys. This is what playoff hockey looks like.

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Not the first game we’ve looked sloppy.

      • Daze55

        Their D has dismantled us.

        • Z-man19

          Seriously?

          • ahnfire

            well, maybe in the 3rd.

          • Z-man19

            If this is the hawks being dismantled, I’ll take it the rest of the year, minus the score

          • ahnfire

            true. but the Hawks aren’t playing as well in the 3rd. I’m seeing a lot more missed passes, whiffs, etc.

            I think they’re tired and Det is pressing.

          • ahnfire

            also doesn’t help that the lines are all messed up BECAUSE BROOKBANK IS PLAYING FWD Q. JFC.

          • ahnfire

            well, not playing but in the lineup. Even Bollig would’ve been more useful. 3:33 TOI so far! GODDAMNIT Q.

        • AMR

          Their D hasn’t dismantled us, but howard has played incredible

        • Daze55

          Kronwall has been an animal. Great stick lifting 85% of our shots in the 3rd have been forced to the outside.

  • Country_Bumpkin

    The Hawks are getting outplayed by a team with a bunch of guys down and the ones that are playing are old. Howard is playing out of his mind.

    • MattC86

      I kinda expected the Hawks would be hot to start and then tired late (last of 3 games in 4 days, plus Detroit energized to end the streak).

    • DesertHawk

      Not really outplayed. But howard is out of his mind right now.

  • BigHoss

    c’mon Hawks fuck the scum

  • derlemke

    Uggg mcfuck

  • Face of Boe

    I sure am glad we have Brookbank as a 7th D man. That is great use of that spot on the bench…

    • robondacob

      has he even played at all? i haven’t noticed

      • Face of Boe

        I remember one shift where he was playing wing in the first

    • CozBullsFan

      no shit. what a stupid decision there.

    • CornelisonsFlagPointer

      He started a couple of dances Friday night.

  • ahnfire

  • http://twitter.com/326BureauChief 326 Bureau Chief

    Edzo’s line about three-games-in-four-days sounding a little rehearsed.

  • CornelisonsFlagPointer

    Serve to Hoss behind the net again!

  • HossBoss

    This is nerve-wracking…

  • DesertHawk

    That should be a penalty to Detroit.

  • http://twitter.com/326BureauChief 326 Bureau Chief

    Who covered up that puck???

  • http://twitter.com/326BureauChief 326 Bureau Chief

    For all of this maelstrom we’re seeing, the Hawks are RIGHT THERE.

  • Daze55

    Finish your chances dammit.

    • http://twitter.com/326BureauChief 326 Bureau Chief

      The rebounds are tight into Howard. No second chances. Which is what he should be doing.

      I mean — SHOULD NOT BE DOING GODDAMMIT.

  • Country_Bumpkin

    I hate to say this, but play for the tie guys.

    • CornelisonsFlagPointer

      Good is scoring and scoring is good.

  • BigHoss

    ughhh

  • bizarrohairhelmet

    That Carello penalty has proved to be the turning point of this game.

  • BigHoss

    ughh sharpie

    HAAARD. Again.

  • Glaze

    Fuck we need a bounce, pucks to the net.

    Jimmy Howard’s shutout to end the streak will establish him as the greatest American born goaltender in the league

    • BigHoss

      shh dont say that

      • Sparky_The_Barbarian

        Shutout shutout shutout….

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    How was the lone goal score? On a set up from below the goal line.
    Hint Hint.

  • HossBoss

    Ugh sharpie

  • CornelisonsFlagPointer

    Was that the first ‘young hockey players’ dropped?

  • HossBoss

    I don’t want this to have to be like the Calgary game. 2.1 is too close for me

    • Z-man19

      This isn’t game 7, there will be a tomorrow

      • DesertHawk

        No there won’t!!! Nobody understands!! :runs off:

  • MattC86

    This is the best I’ve ever seen Kyle Quincey play. By a mile.

  • BigHoss

    cmon tree tirty tree left to go lets do this

  • DesertHawk

    I say again hnghhh

  • MattC86

    Hawks need to play in the offensive zone not just heave it at the net.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Despite the early Hawks domination, this feels like a stolen point.

    • bizarrohairhelmet

      I disagree. The Hawks have been bell-answeres all season.

    • DesertHawk

      Both teams came out and fought hard as hell, whoever wins, they deserved it.

    • chidiver

      I think this has been one of the best played games this season…by both teams.

    • 1benmenno

      Howard stole the game–or at least a point–in the first period.

    Win this game. Win this game for Hossa, win this game for Crow.
    WIN IT

    WIN IT NOW

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Regardless of who wins, the losing Goalie should get a star.

      • ahnfire

        I hope that losing goalie is Howard.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    What do we say to the god of death? NOT TODAY!

    Or, Sean Bean is standing right over there….

    • DesertHawk

      Hahah oh Sean Bean…

  • BigHoss

    I love this team!

  • HossBoss

    Hoss lets go play for 5 minutes and go home. Bring it home.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    These guys are gassed.

  • http://twitter.com/326BureauChief 326 Bureau Chief

    That was almost incredible from Shaw just then.

  • CornelisonsFlagPointer

    Well, I don’t hate golf.

  • Z-man19

    Nice take down of Shaw

  • Flavius

    Tackling Shaw not a penalty….I had forgotten that rule change

    • AMR

      but if shaw breathes wrong on a goalie its a penalty

      • bizarrohairhelmet

        Depends on how well that goalie can act.

    • DesertHawk

      Yep part of the new CBA.

    • chidiver

      Playoff refereeing. Whistles swallowed.

  • DesertHawk

    Is there a team in the league, that gets the D-men involved in the offense better than the Hawks?

  • http://twitter.com/326BureauChief 326 Bureau Chief

  • Daze55

    Holy fuck crow, best game of his fucking life.

  • HossBoss

    BA-CAW!

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    A shootout is no way to decide a classic game like this.

    • http://twitter.com/326BureauChief 326 Bureau Chief

      This is a classic game like Howard the Duck is a classic movie. Sloppy as hell. Still great hockey, but not a masterpiece by any means.

      I agree though. Shootouts suck.

      • 1benmenno

        So by your logic, Howard is not a classic movie but a great one.

    • DesertHawk

      But it would mean, even if we lose, we still haven’t been beaten at hockey. I still want the win in OT obviously.

    • chidiver

      I understand. But given how many games we have in the coming week…I’ll accept the beer pong results over multiple overtimes.

    • Flavius

      How about Secord vs Probert?

      • bizarrohairhelmet

        I actually would rather the point be decided by a fight as long as we get Snuggles on loan.

  • http://twitter.com/326BureauChief 326 Bureau Chief

    Hossa wants a fucking goal. Love that.

  • DesertHawk

    Hossa not happy about missing that. Why is franzen talking to Crawford?

    • 2883

      told him he was lucky,

      • DesertHawk

        Not on that one.

        • 2883

          He did miss it, meant to get it closer to the near post and pushed it….

          • DesertHawk

            Crow got a piece of it too though no, or did I miss a replay?

          • 2883

            No he did but he wouldn’t have if Franzen would have pu the shot where he wanted it.

          • DesertHawk

            Ah. C’est la vie. Crow got all the pieces he needed to. Hawks win!!

            Isn’t that like the whole point of playing the game? We all know where they WANT to shoot it.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Saad taking the draw?

    • AMR

      It was him and Kane on the ice

  • HossBoss

    BA-CAW! BA-CAW!

  • http://twitter.com/326BureauChief 326 Bureau Chief

    Tiddlywinks! WE HAVE TIDDLYWINKS!

  • DesertHawk

    That was close as hell for Kaner, he’s amazing.

  • Z-man19

    Skills comp

  • ahnfire

    sigh coin flip time

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      No way to end a game like this. Each team should get a point and a half.

    • Country_Bumpkin

      I like fart lighting contest better.

  • DuHawk

    Toews, Kane, Hossa. Make it so Q.

    • 1benmenno

      We’ll never know if Hossa made the cut. Ok by me. And my thumping heart.

  • DesertHawk

    Doc Emrick is losing his voice.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Still haven’t been beaten in regulation OR OT.

  • robondacob

    rock, paper, scissors coming up

  • 2883

    Tiddlywinks for the extra point

  • bizarrohairhelmet

    Fucking NHL. This game does not deserve a tiddlywinks point.

    • http://twitter.com/326BureauChief 326 Bureau Chief

      I want royalties for calling it “tiddlywinks” first.

  • DesertHawk

    Since when have the Hawks and Lanche been a rivalry?

    • AMR

      Since NBC needs to promote games

      • DesertHawk

        They should just be honest. Wednesday night hockey, watch it, cause hockey is fucking awesome.

        • AMR

          Because the Hawks are fuckin awesome

          • DesertHawk

            Honestly that’s the biggest reason, non-lanche/Hawk fans will be watching.

          • Flavius

            I’d say until the streak ends, anybody we play on a Wednesday will be a “rival”

    • BigHoss

      since forever.. duh

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      I was puzzling over this myself earlier.

    • bizarrohairhelmet

      since maybe 5 years from now…

  • Z-man19

    The hawks have 40 points, 40 FUCKING POINTS

    • 2883

      Indeed… we’ll see if it’s 40/44 or 41/44. either way, it’s been a heck of a way to begin the season.

      • bizarrohairhelmet

        41

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      41

      • Z-man19

        In this case, I love being wrong

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Captains to center ice. Team Captain that can name the most Doctor Who episodes with ‘Time’ in the title, wins the extra point for his team.

  • steeg of their own

    So now we all play Jenga for the win. Gag.

    • DesertHawk

      That’d be awesome if that’s what they actually do.

  • rossrolld

    So happy I’m not following the game on my computer instead of watching it…oh wait.

    • DesertHawk

      Hopefully we’re keeping you informed.

      • rossrolld

        Trust me, you are.

      Good goaltending does that to great shooters sometimes

      • 1benmenno

        Unlike last night’s Habs-Pens game.

          So much for all that Carey Price knob-slobbering last night.

          The kind that wins games. Gawd. Pay attention.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Time for the afternoon walk.

    Think I’ll wear my Hawks jacket.

  • DesertHawk

    I would just like to state, that in 21 games… no one has been able to beat the Blackhawks at hockey.

    • robondacob

      But 3 teams have beaten the hawks in coin flips

      • DesertHawk

        True, but fortunately we’re not fans of the NCFL.

      • Sparky_The_Barbarian

        Coin flips happen AFTER OT! In other words, the shootout comes after the game. Hawks have not lost in reg or in OT.

    • rossrolld

      I’d say this Blackhawks team you speak of is pretty good at the sport of hockey, huh?

  • HossBoss

    NBC screwed me…gotta wait for the highlights….

    • DesertHawk

      Oh, lame sauce bro.

    • BigHoss

      take em to court

      • 10thMountainFire

        Why would you want to be seen in public with Pierre Mcguire?

        • BigHoss

          yeah on second thought dont do that

    SCUM, let them forever be fucked!!!!

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Let them fuck off to the Eastern Conference.

  • Accipiter

    That had the feel of a playoff game (except for the home run comp).

    • DesertHawk

      We have another back to back starting tuesday.. I’d rather it be decided by shootout than recurring OTs

    • bizarrohairhelmet

      Yeah. Right up until the last minute of OT and you could see the wind go out of everyone’s sails on both sides. It made me really miss playoff hockey and regret flippycup.

    • 10thMountainFire

      It had the feel of playoffs if Detroit made the playoffs this season.

  • bizarrohairhelmet

    and NBC rushes to….golf. It’s like digital tryptophan…

          • Flavius

            Damn….that’s graphic.

  • DesertHawk

    Oh wow, Identical records for the goalies that game 33 SA for each of them.

  • mightymikeD

    I love early games.. except when I’m working a fucking Sunday, of course.. still, bailed out early, legged it home and only missed ten minutes of what was, for my money, the most enthralling Hockey game I’ve seen this year.. way too often the Hawks/SCUM games tend to be grim damp squibs that we feel lucky to get through.. not today, my frents.

    Towards the end (although I had no doubt that the Hawks would nick a goal) I recall thinking “if the streak has to end, this is as good an end as we could ask for”.. rather go out to the Wings after a great game than on some mail-it-in-night against Colorado or Calgary. Basically, I’m going to miss those Winged Shitheels.

    • http://whatisthebestadverb.wordpress.com/ I am not Chico Maki

      Same here, best game of the year easily. Exciting from puck drop forward. Not many mistakes, just two good teams fighting like hell through 65 minutes. This was one of those games where a tie was probably the more proper outcome. But ya, I’ll take the extra point.

      The part about him not realizing his wife wasn’t there… all the feels.

      • mightymikeD

        yeah. hadn’t heard that one.. and the class on display re: Torres..

        He’s a classic Slovak.. there’s a tendency in North America to say “European” as though we’re all the same.. but a Swede differs from a Frenchman differs from a Czech.. and I’ve been lucky enough to know a whole bunch of Slovaks.. they have all been, to a man and woman, intense, understated yet passionate, honest and slightly crazy. If you’re their friend then you have a friend for life. If you’re their enemy.. I wouldn’t want to go there.Good, good people.

        • Z-man19

    While Kills gets his blood-alcohol up to “Wrap Writing” levels, here’s a thought and/or point..

    As Hawks fans we’re all happily (?) bemoaning Q playing Gorilla Salad on the Toews Line, worrying about how long Razor can keep his performance going and fretting about the PP.. so far, so business as usual. The rest of the Hockey World, however, are scraping their jaws off the floor at what these Blackhawks are getting up to:

    Mooney, in Puck Daddy:
    “The Chicago Blackhawks pushed their run of games
    without a regulation loss to 22 on Sunday, edging the Detroit Red Wings
    2-1 in a shootout. Have we mentioned these guys are incredible?”

    NHL.com:
    “It’s starting to feel like the Chicago Blackhawks won’t lose a game in regulation the rest of the season”

    Detroitnr1 on WIIM:
    “Lets face it, Chicago is a good team and the point was well-earned”

    The NBC pundits were drooling too..

    We’re lucky to be worrying about the inadequate tea & coffee-making facilities on an enormous shining spaceship headed straight for the stars.

    This team is the real damn deal and we need to enjoy the hell out of this season..

    • 1benmenno
