    Hello friends

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Howdy

    • DesertHawk

      I’m not your friend, buddy!

      • DuHawk

        I’m not your buddy, friend

        • Z-man19

          Oooh, a hawk fight

          • DesertHawk

            He’s moving in on my DH cred. Can’t have that.

          • DuHawk

            No ill will DH…just trying to have some fun…sorry

          • Z-man19

            Don’t give in that easy, you’ll never last around here

          • DesertHawk

            No worries man, I’m totally just yanking your chain. Welcome to the comments :D

          • DuHawk

            Too many Captains…the sarcasm meter is out of order

          • DesertHawk

            Pretty much always full tilt from me.

          • DuHawk

            Sorry…don’t want to infringe on your territory

          • Z-man19

            Don’t mind DH, he’s a just a bit territorial

          • CozBullsFan

            As a Cyclone alum, I hate anything that has to do with the word Hawk unless it’s the Blackhawks!

          • Daze55

            I’m not your buddy, guy.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    I don’t care how many we win at the start of the season. All I ask is that we make the playoffs, and win the last game we play (think about it).

    • DesertHawk

      Indeed

  • CozBullsFan

    Let’s go Hawks!

  • pierzynskirules

    hawks!

  • Z-man19

    He is Hossa and you aren’t, live with it. LETS GO HAWKS

  • mightymikeD

    Allons ‘Awks!

  • High and Wide

    Thought I’d be missing this one, but huge wipeout on driveway ice yesterday = no ball hockey game for me. GO HAWKS!

  • Flavius

    What is this, about the 75th time there’s been some big deal about Edzo going in the US Hockey Hall of Fame? Holy Jeebus

  • steeg of their own

    Let’s go Blackhawks!

    Here’s hoping Nemo gets hoisted on his own harpoon and then eaten by a kraken.

  • pompoon

    I was looking forward to watching this game on TV since I’m at a hotel, but now my hotel does not have CSN. What a crock…anyway, Let’s Go Hawks!

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      You have my permission to go all Ozzy Osborne on them.

      • pompoon

        I totally should. I don’t even have a bottle opener in my room.

        • Sparky_The_Barbarian

          Well, Ozzy didn’t really need one.

          • pompoon

            Neither did I…though some beer did get on the carpet.

    • stacie7

      Do they have NHL network? It’s on there too.

      • pompoon

        Bupkis. They only have about two dozen channels. Of course they include ESPN and ESPN U…

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    If the Hawks streak is snapped tonight, Edzo will NEVER hear the end of it, and he knows it.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    CTA old vet has a USS Emery hat on. That HAS to be a good omen.

    • putmeinthemadhouse

      Can we start calling him the USS Emery if he gets the W tonight?

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      USS Emery

  • putmeinthemadhouse

    burish, you aint fancy.

    • Flavius

      Troof

  • Hi, I’m Bob LeDonne

    LETS GET CRAZY

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Too late.

  • 2883

    MOAR HAWKS GOALS

  • Z-man19

    Carry the mail Leddy, thata boy

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Leddy coast to coast, Nemo gave a big rebound but no one was there. Keep giving those juicy rebounds Nemo

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Razor, get back in your crease

  • 2883

    Razor fucking stay in position…

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Time to get out the Crawford Duct Tape.

  • http://twitter.com/hair_helmet hairhelmet

    scary

  • DesertHawk

    Wow the Sharks are snake bit as hell.

    • stacie7

      Good for us

      • DesertHawk

        Mmmyes… quite

  • amontesawesome

    The second line, guys…

  • pierzynskirules

    go away havlat.

  • Flavius

    Every time we’re pinned in our own zone, 88-36-10 is on the ice….this is not a good line.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Razor seeing too much close up action, let’s go play in front of Nemo for a while.

  • stacie7

    Emery is making me waaaay to nervous tonight.

    • Z-man19

      Glad you could join us, relax Carbomb is on the ice, all is well

    • Eddie_The_Eagle50

      Yeah, Razor has looked a little wonky so far.

    • mightymikeD

      me tooo…

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    If the Sharks could hit an open net this could be 3-0 already,

  • Z-man19

    Ray not seeing it real well

  • DesertHawk

    Knee *Cough* suspension *Cough* Injury.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Smile, Rocky. Geez

    • Eddie_The_Eagle50

      What does he have to smile about? He only owns one of the most successful franchises in the NHL.

  • ballyb

    THIS

    is the Emory I remember.

  • 2883

    Carcillo adds a bit of a scoring touch to that 4th line.. I like that line a lot

  • Flavius

    Diving Wingells

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      That sounds itchy.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    That top line had a great sequence.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    PING Surprise. Not Sharp.

    • DesertHawk

      ^ huh?

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Now THAT is more like it.

  • 2883

    A couple of nice offensive zone pressures…. only iron to show

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    I think I can hear crickets in the thread tonight.

    • 1benmenno

      By Jiminey

  • Daze55

    Nice to have someone who actually hits on the 4th line

  • 2883

    STOP IT RIGHT HERE, getting your parents to go to the fridge for your beer is always a good idea

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      No it’s not. My mom always took one for herself when I asked her to bring me one.

      • 2883

        My parents don’t drink.. Also I’ve been good about getting them to buy every other 12 pack…. so winning?

        • Daze55

          I’d say you’re a champion

  • putmeinthemadhouse

    damn roszi, nice attempt.

    • Z-man19

      Close

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Indeed. Great job just to get a shot off. Sharks D is tight. They’re doing a lot of double teaming though. Look out for the back door.

  • Z-man19

    Could we get more NHL Network schedules

  • http://twitter.com/hair_helmet hairhelmet

    ugh. 1strowsporetz is a regression

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Not a lot of crisp passing tonight. Sharks D has something to do with that, but still.

    • steeg of their own

      Ice has looked a little soft too. Lots of bouncy little hops for both teams.

    • Z-man19

      Make that 2nd period scotch a double

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Is it me or is Razor looking VERY slow post to post tonight (even by his standards)?

    • CozBullsFan

      Indeed he does. Playing 4 games in a row with his condition is not an ideal situation.

    • 2883

      Out of position a lot tonight, yup

      • Sparky_The_Barbarian

        Yeah, that could be part of it, going too far outside the post.

  • Eddie_The_Eagle50

    Sharks are playing inspired right now.

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Yeah, though we’ve had our chances, I’ll feel a bit relieved just to get out of the period scoreless.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Carbomb parked on the back door, couldn’t one time the bouncing puck.

  • DesertHawk

    Are we line blendering a bit tonight? Toews and Eyebrow out on the same line?

    • 2883

      Slow change I think….. Saad with a really nice drop pass /move to get it to Hossa, Hossa just whiffed.

      • Z-man19

        Saad waited too long

  • Z-man19

    A bit late Saad

  • mightymikeD

    what a lovely wee pass from Saad..

  • 2883

    Fuck..

  • pierzynskirules

    criminy

  • Eddie_The_Eagle50

    Well fuck!

  • DuHawk

    Damn

  • CozBullsFan

    fuck

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Well, that was inevitable, if poorly timed.

  • http://twitter.com/hair_helmet hairhelmet

    FUCK FUCK FUCK

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Oh, Razor SOOO close to choking that off.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    There is your wake up call for the 2nd period, Hawks.

  • mightymikeD

    testicles.

    • Z-man19

      Balls

      • ahnfire

        Seabs.

        • Z-man19

          Biscuits

    • 1benmenno

      bruised and braised

  • Eddie_The_Eagle50

    Lucky to escape with only one against.

  • puppetmasterp

    The sharks were smelling blood there for a while. What IS IT about those last minute goals????

  • ahnfire

    terrible. I disapprove of the first period.

  • http://twitter.com/hair_helmet hairhelmet

    Hawks seems a little low energied

  • pompoon

    Dammit Blackhawks, don’t let the Sharks be the team to bring you back to Earth…

  • mightymikeD

    Hossa in the Locker Room, right now:

    “Ha! Is OK my friends.. is Marian’s first period since silly Denmark man hit him. Marian find Beast-Mode now, score lots of goals. Pierogis for everyone!”

    • Eddie_The_Eagle50

      But let me put white skates on first.

    • steeg of their own

      You shouldn’t have mentioned the pierogis. Now I’m hungry.

      • Z-man19

        I was fine til you mentioned hungry, fuck I need a sandwich

  • Flavius

    Bring back Sarah Kustok!

    • Eddie_The_Eagle50

      No thank you

    • raditzzzz

      was just wondering what happened to her during the last game.

  • Eddie_The_Eagle50

    Alright Razor, get that hip oiled up and remove your head from your ass.

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

      …and clean that crisco off of your pads

  • DesertHawk

    That save by allen was pretty ridiculous.

  • raditzzzz

    that emery goal…puck off the boot break. check out my forum post on rebound control (see the forum box on the right) for more info about that!

    • Eddie_The_Eagle50

      Would’ve much rather it gotten kicked into the slot like you put in that post.

      • raditzzzz

        it did! thats the issue!

    • Flavius

      Thanks for taking the time with that…I skimmed it quickly earlier, will read it after the game or tomorrow AM

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

    In Nuck news, Bieksa left the game injured and is out of his pads.

  • Z-man19

    Ouch Malkin, that hurt

  • http://twitter.com/hair_helmet hairhelmet

    Ok. Time to make the rallytots.
