• Aaeismacgychel

    Did they really just announce that Corey is struggling in net? He could win back to back Conn Smythes and Vezinas and still be doubted

    • Sopel the catfish

      He is as lazy as Phil Kessel, I mean Crow hasn’t even won any playoff games yet this year.

      • Aaeismacgychel

        He’s clearly uncoachable.

        • Sopel the catfish

          And apparently takes bad penalties

    • Aaeismacgychel

      LOL, a bad last 2 outings? He had a 2.00GAA and a 0.943 SVP in those games. What are these commentators on?

    • B.I.G. Forever

      NBC also just aired the Wake Wake Backes footage….soooo……

  • B.I.G. Forever

    Let’s Go Hawks!

  • Aaeismacgychel

    I would’ve loved to see Rozi destroy Backes there. He was prone and would’ve been a legal hit.

    • Sopel the catfish

      I would love an illegal hit from Rosie, have the NHL tell Q that he cannot play him.

      • Aaeismacgychel

        Lol!

  • B.I.G. Forever

    #whereiscarbomb

    • Sopel the catfish

      I’d take him dressing as the 6th D over Rosie

  • Sopel the catfish

    Support from the forwards, I like it.

  • B.I.G. Forever

    PP for the Blues is SO GOOD at getting open shots and creating open ice. Several pretty nice chances. When the Hawks turn it on they can play with anyone.

    • Aaeismacgychel

      Yeah, they looked extremely dangerous out there.

  • Aaeismacgychel

    HOW IS THAT NOT A PENALTY?!!?!?!?!

    • Aaeismacgychel

      My gosh if that wasn’t interference on Desjardins from behind on a 2 on 1, I don’t know what is. Incredible that wasn’t called

  • Aaeismacgychel

    WHAT A GREAT PLAY! ALL AROUND! WOW!

    • Aaeismacgychel

      That is how you pressure defensemen and forecheck. Phenomenal play. Phenomenal. By that whole line

  • Sopel the catfish

    I love Blackhawk goal replays that involve Barrett Jackman.

  • Aaeismacgychel

    No idea how Teuvo got that shot on net. That was black magic

  • Aaeismacgychel

    I’m not sure what these refs are watching thus far. There is no way he kept that puck in the zone.

  • Sopel the catfish

    I’ve been liking what I’ve been seeing out of 11 for the past few games

    • Aaeismacgychel

      Yeah, he had a good game last time out and he’s been great thus far tonight

      • Sopel the catfish

        A good bowling ball for Teuvo

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Oh yeah, Ryan Reaves is a huge difference maker on these Blues. How drunk are these announcers right now? Did they do any prep for this game, or are they just throwing out random names and info at this point?

    • Sopel the catfish

      Versus, we changed the name of the channel but not the quality of programming.

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Not sure how they put the Cubs-Cards game at the same time as the Hawks-Blues game. They would have had the entire Chicago population watching a full day of sports if they slotted them differently

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Geez, of all the question marks on this team, they pick Crawford as the biggest? Is Tuuka Rask the biggest question mark on Boston? I mean they have the same numbers…

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Frak, Timonen injured from that check from behind by Reaves.

  • Sopel the catfish

    Ott and Bickell discussing the finer points of french cuisine.

  • Sopel the catfish

    should be 2 for cross check and 2 for embellishment.

    • Aaeismacgychel

      No kidding. If the Reaves hit on Timonen from behind was legal, that was legal too. That was basically a love tap by comparison

  • Sopel the catfish

    fuck you depth perception, everyone here thought that was in

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Corey Crawford just went god mode there. Holy frak.

  • Sopel the catfish

    Hawks have played like ass in the second period for the last few games, they have also won the past few games. Get your heads out of your asses and do this.

  • Aaeismacgychel

    HOW WAS THAT NOT TOO MANY MEN?!?!?!?!? WHAT ARE THESE REFS WATCHING?!?!??!

    • Aaeismacgychel

      I don’t usually do this but my gosh has this been a bs called game.

      • Sopel the catfish

        This refs are of the same quality garbage that Ryan Reaves sleeps next to in his dumpster

  • CelticFrost91

    Man, have my thoughts on Crawford changed as of recent (in a very good way).

  • Sopel the catfish

    Good one Seabs!

    • Aaeismacgychel

      Just effing destroyed that fraker

  • Sopel the catfish

    Backes going into douche mode, boys in red need to be careful

    • Aaeismacgychel

      Luckily that was Reaves who got demolished, and I’m relatively certain there’s nothing upstairs to damage

  • Sopel the catfish

    that goofy looking fucker? dammit

  • Sopel the catfish

    and Rosie with another sweet play that leads to a goal

  • My Sweet Hossa! Off the post.

  • OK lets go barefooted, NO CLOWNSHOES!

  • B.I.G. Forever
  • Sopel the catfish

    Steve Ott has to talk a big game since he can’t play one

  • Icdws

    I’m back fellas with my usual question: Why is Rozival playing?

    • Sopel the catfish
      • Icdws

        That certainly explains it. Thanks fish

        • Sopel the catfish

          same reasoning for playing Bollig for 82 straight games

          • Icdws

            Runblads heavy shot and speed would have been useful tonight. D just collapsed low whenever he was at point. The just sux and bring the whole team down. I hate him.

          • WookRN

            I heard he looked good against the Sabres….

  • Sopel the catfish

    Sure would be nice for the team to show up big in the last ten minutes, take it in regulation and don’t let stl get any points

  • Icdws

    Wow Rozival looks worse than ever in this period.

  • seabsrat

    How many blocked shots do they have? I feel like all we’re hitting is their shinpads.

    • seabsrat

      And I think Keith has at least half of them.

  • Icdws

    Blues d is stifiling. Too many blocked shots.

  • Sopel the catfish

    that was dumb

  • Icdws

    Trouble my friends with river city

    • To Saad be the glory

      Trouble was the Hawks.If the same old point shot keeps getting blocked or going wide over and over again,why bother to continue to try the same old play? If I was the Blues I’d let Keith take that same shot all night.

  • seabsrat

    Well the good thing is that I don’t think the Hawks played especially badly (except for 32, of course) but they did allow themselves to be totally smothered by river scum defense.

  • Brandon Murray

    It was a game I wanted to win so badly but won’t be upset about the effort and 39 shots, especially in a 2-1 loss on a goal that never would have happened if Rozie wasn’t dressed. He continues to be worthless. It widens the gap to 3 points and puts the Blues in the drivers seat for the division, but not a comfortable seat. If I’m choosing right now, I’ll take Nashville over Minny in Round 1 any day. We need to pass Nashville and gather home ice for that series.

    This Hawks team still has a surprise or two up their sleeves, it is going to be a wild ride.

  • Brandon Murray

    Oh and by my count it was 39 shots and another 6,432 attempts blocked.

  • Oldfarthawkfan

    if the Hawks would of converted on even one of their breakaways, in the first 2 periods, different game

  • TitanTransistor

    Joel Quenneville’s stubborn determination to dress Micheal Rozsival will kneecap this team.

    • Oldfarthawkfan

      Was hoping Timmonen could at least become the fifth defenseman. With him hurt, the top 4 are going to all have to log Suter type minutes. Even Quenville has to see that Rozsival cannot see more than 6or 7 minutes a game. Maybe Piolatta can wow in his game that they give him,

    • WookRN

      Especially with TVR down for the count….Rundblad anyone….?

  • TitanTransistor

    Anyway, time to start resting players down the stretch. This loss pretty much ensures 3rd seed for the 2nd year straight.

    • WookRN

      Well…Shaw will get to…

  • Brandon Murray

    Still time to jump Nashville for home ice and the 2nd seed. Also still time to win 1st round and then have unexpected home ice in the 2nd round when Blues flame out in round 1. If I’ve learned anything from this season it is that no central division team is safe in round 1.
