    Let’s Go Hawks!

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Crawford chant already, huh?

    • D_Smith

      I didn’t realize tonight’s game was being held in St. Louis. Expected more from Wild fans than a goalie chant for Crawford when he hasn’t given up a goal yet and won the first 2 lol.

      • Aaeismacgychel

        Yeah, I remember them doing it last year as well and they got a stone wall. I wouldn’t mind similar reults

        • WookRN

          Hey, we cheer for Crow….we can let them 😉

        • Aaeismacgychel

          I’m thumbing up my own comment on this one 😀 What a job, Crow!

          • Hockey Newbie

            Just seems like when you are chanting the goalie all game long, and he has not let up a shot, you are messing with hockey karma. And it is firigging idiotic too!!! What a way to shut em up!

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Minnesota flying fast early. Chicago has to start playing smarter

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Minnesota really moving their defense up on the play so Chicago might get some pretty high quality counter chances

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Not a good penalty by Vermette there. Come on, PK

  • Sam

    Nepotism Albert (nephew of nasallly perv felon Mark) announcing. Makes my skin crawl. Sad side effect of hockey gaining mainstream cred.

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Great kill

  • Aaeismacgychel

    What a vicious trip. Holy frak. Lucky Bickell is okay

    • cza

      Is that something the league might review? Seems like he was gunning for the knee (the same knee Bickell injured in 2013).

      • Aaeismacgychel

        They won’t look into it because his name is Bickell, but they should. That was dirty and dangerous. If he did it to Crosby, he’d be gone for at least the rest of the series

  • D_Smith
  • Aaeismacgychel

    GOOOOOOOAAAAAALLLLLL PATRICK KANE!!!

  • CornelisonsFlagPointer

    He just scores, that’s all!

  • Aaeismacgychel

    That’s a big big first goal. Not a good goal given up by Dubnyk, but Kaner taking page from Tazer going 5 hole

  • CornelisonsFlagPointer

    Did Kaner get up?

  • Aaeismacgychel

    HOW WAS THAT NOT BOARDING?!?!?!

    • WookRN

      Cause he pushed down instead of in???

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Really good job weathering the early Minnesota storm and taking the lead into the 1st intermission. Have to continue that effort into the 2nd but great 1st period on the road.

  • Aaeismacgychel

    JR positively tearing Vanek a new one.

  • CornelisonsFlagPointer

    Yeah, great period, Cro with some great saves to keep them in it until everybody else settled down, then steadily increasing the pressure. Great play by the Captain on that next to last rush.
    So, what’s everybody drinking? I mean, you other two guys LOL.
    I’m doing Solana silver agave tequila between Arnold Palmers. Feliz Cinco de Mayo!

    • Aaeismacgychel

      Ah, I’m more the catatonic sports fan. I get too nevous to eat or drink during the game and mainly just sit staring at the screen, screaming randomly

      • Hockey Newbie

        You should go out more often, here in Zona, trolling for those awesome Nucks fans tho. Watch a good game and then get in a good dust up.

        • Aaeismacgychel

          I really should. It’d be cool running into that loser again even if I had to visit the local county jail to do it.

    • WookRN

      A local hard cider ( the third). A left hand stout. A Guinness. A shake porter.

  • Pierre Wolfthing

    Terrorvainen is going to score tonight – book it.

  • CornelisonsFlagPointer

    Go Hawks!

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Great job keeping that out, Crow.

  • Aaeismacgychel

    CRAWFORD!!!

  • WookRN

    Crow having a Crawford game….he’ll let one in, we win by one…

  • Aaeismacgychel

    How much money do the refs have on this game? They don’t call the 3 or 4 obvious penalties on the Wild and they call this garbage

  • CornelisonsFlagPointer

    KILLED it! Cro ain’t havin’ NONE of it tonight!

  • Aaeismacgychel

    CRAWFORD!!! WHAT A KILL BY HIM

  • Sopel the catfish

    Couple things, first DAT CROW GUY
    Second, I love when I get to see Showtime rattle and point his hands in his celebration (don’t ever say celly, it’s dumb and makes you sound dumb. I don’t care if any actual hockey players say it, it’s dumb)
    Third, that guy’s knee behind Coach Q looked like Pierre’s head.
    The young lady behind Coach Yeo looked like she was attractive.

    • seabsrat

      All of this made me laugh.

    • Icdws

      Much like the pair from the other night behind Hawks bench. And I don’t mean two women.

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Really glad refs didn’t call that too

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Man, that would’ve been a wonderful goal by Sharp to end the period. A guy can dream…

  • WookRN

    lacking shots this period but man….Crow….

    • Aaeismacgychel

      Playing well so far. I’d love to see us take over this period though and get some cycling going. Backed up a bit too much that 2nd and need to be a bit more aggressive this period. Let’s get some insurance goals.

  • seabsrat

    Gotta get one next period.. This one goal doesn’t feel like enough. I think General Saad and big hoss are going to make Minnesota’s d pay for pinching this period. Crow playing huge tonight!

    • Sopel the catfish

      I’ve been thinking Hoss was going to get one

      • Icdws

        I like the vermette line (?). Wild has no answer for them.

        • Sopel the catfish

          80 or 81 will get the next goal (hopefully)

        • cza

          Yes to this. I also love our 3b line. It just doesn’t seem right to call them the 4th line.

          • Sopel the catfish

            The other third option.

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Come on guys, smarter changes

  • CornelisonsFlagPointer

    Metal!

  • Sopel the catfish

    Off the post, now feels like Richards might be the next. I enjoy the feeling of expecting each Hawk to be the next to score.

    • CornelisonsFlagPointer

      LOL nearly unseated the net from the overhead slomo

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Damn that was close

  • Aaeismacgychel

    We need to start playing more aggressive. Get some zone time. Wild can’t score if they don’t have the puck

    • WookRN

      Yeah. We need pressure…

      • D_Smith

        And some possession.

  • WookRN

    Still trying taunt Crow? JV shit St Paul.

  • CornelisonsFlagPointer

    WOW, how did THAT not go in?

  • Aaeismacgychel

    HOLY HELL! COREY MOTHEREFFING CRAWFORD

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Hawks absolutely playing with fire here

  • CornelisonsFlagPointer

    What the hell, every time the Hawks get the puck, they try to do a change and can’t get a play set up?

  • Sopel the catfish

    So even with the replay I don’t really see too many men.

    • Aaeismacgychel

      I didn’t see it either- definitely thought the extra men were within 10ft of the benches

    • WookRN

      Weak too many men…but a great pk

  • Sopel the catfish

    Hossa’s turn for a shorty

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Great job by Keith

  • Sopel the catfish

    You need your goaltender to be your best penalty killer. Corey Crawford has been the best penalty killer tonight.

  • WookRN

    Loving the two way game Teuvo is giving us…

    • Aaeismacgychel

      Absolutely. Solid solid smart game from him

      • WookRN

        Been nice if he’d have got that ENG

    • cza

      Watching Teuvo tonight, I wondered if when Q weighs TT vs. Versteeg, he asks Sharp for his opinion.

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Okay guys, win these final 5 minutes and change

  • Peanut Butter

    Damn way to be there Crow

  • Aaeismacgychel

    CRAWFORD!!!

  • To Saad be the glory

    Millen says the Finnish baby Jesus is gonna be a beauty.

  • CornelisonsFlagPointer

    NO offense. Hope 1 is enough.

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Oh boy… Come on, Hawks, win these final 3 minutes and change

  • Peanut Butter

    Looks like Koivu has lost 4 of the last 5 faceoffs and he’s lost them to Toews, Shaw, Kruger and Vermette. He’s having a horrible game

  • Sopel the catfish

    Kruger with the jumping tip to clear the puck

  • Peanut Butter

    Crow is for sure my #1 star of the game!

    • D_Smith

      Yep this has been one of those games where Craw definitely deserves the belt.

      • WookRN

        Screw what the media thinks the three stars are….I wanna know who gets the belt every game.

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Big save and no rebound there

  • The Gatest Gamer

    Crawford sucks lol

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Win this faceoff, Hawks and get it out of the zone

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Marcus Kruger. Shades of 2013.

  • Aaeismacgychel

    GO HAWKS!!!! WHAT A ROAD WIN!!!

  • Sopel the catfish

    Kane sucks missed the ENG, and Crow sucks he didn’t score any goals tonight.

    • The Gatest Gamer

      Trade the lot of them.

    • To Saad be the glory

      Damn Crawstink,he didn’t score tonight!!

      • Hockey Newbie

        I thought it was CRAWFUL. That is the one I like. Hope we dump his ass next year so he will stop holding back the growth of the Lemont native son!!

  • CornelisonsFlagPointer

    COR-REE! COR-REE! COR-REE!

  • To Saad be the glory

    Holy shit,game 3 S/O on the road!

    • Sopel the catfish

      Fuck the past, except the now immediate past/present

      • To Saad be the glory

        lol,like I say,only you would think of something like that.

    • Bob Lanz

      Games 3 history ignored, winning With the lead into the third… perfection

  • Sopel the catfish

    Wow that was a pretty shorty, CGY ties it up at 2-2.

    • To Saad be the glory

      please,more of this team,the one that calls themselves the flames.

      • Sopel the catfish

        Even Bollig got in on the action to open up the scoring.

        That hurt my fingers a lot to type.

        • To Saad be the glory

          lol,the Bollig still roams the alberta plains wild and free.

          • Sopel the catfish

            My hate almost seems irrational, but it’s completely logical and rooted in fact. Kind of like how I’m not addicted, because I could totally stop if I wanted to, I just don’t want to.

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Number of CRAW-FORD chants: Hundreds
    Number of Crawford saves: 30
    Number of Minnesota goals: 0
    A Game 3 Shutout performance: MOTHEREFFING PRICELESS

    • Bob Lanz

      Fucking A to that

  • Bob Lanz

    Crawford was fucking outstanding tonight. He stole this bitch. Solid D blocking shots, great game great game

  • To Saad be the glory

    Hard to believe it’s 3-0. Before the game I figured it would lean towards 60 mins. of stink. And Rozy carrying the puck out of the zone,wow. Kinda like the proud feeling you get after teaching your kid to ride a bike.

    • Aaeismacgychel

      Rozsival was freakin’ unbelievable tonight. He played like the playoff vet he is. Such great positioning, such smart pinches and decisions. We give him a hell of a lot of grief but he was so so solid today. And you know what? Timonen was solid tonight too. What an all around defensive effort.

  • rhodes

    Defense. Crawford. Kane. In that order. Hawks took advantage of their 2-game lead, recognized they were on the road against a team that was going to take chances, and played a perfectly conservative, defense intensive game. Of course, that relies on your goalie making saves, which he did. Kane had a chance early and buried it. Also, the PK was nails.

  • Sopel the catfish

    I hope Millbury calls out Crow again ahead of game 4.

    • rhodes

      Did he? I missed that. Millbury is an idiot.

      • Sopel the catfish

        Comments about how if he’s on a plane and they experience turbulence he holds the seat no matter how smooth the rest of the ride goes, and how with Crow starting he would be holding his seat.

    • To Saad be the glory

      Milbury. A whole generation of islander’s childrens hopes were trashed by this moron. Way to destroy a franchise Mikey boy.

  • TitanTransistor

    Great performance from Crawford!

  • Aaeismacgychel

    By the way, sucky sucky Crawford’s career postseason numbers against Minnesota and their chanting mouthbreathers:
    W-L: 11-3
    GAA: 1.60
    SVP: 0.942
    Whattabum!!!

    • cza

      I regret that I have but one upboat to give.

      • WookRN

        I regret that then I was the first up vote….

  • Brandon Murray

    His name is Corey Crawford and he stops pucks for a living. There is two things Crow is good at, Goaltending & Bartending. Also, I am the single biggest Rozsival hater on the planet, but in this series, I do not recognize the one they call Rozie, he is playing lights out. Also Part II (The Return of Also) to the early poster who said they didn’t realize the game was being played in St. louis tonight due to the opening face-off Craaaawfooooord chants, well done. It was laughable. I’d think the state of hockey would be smarter than that, but……

    • To Saad be the glory

      state of hockey…they shall now be known as lake scum for the Crawford chants!

  • Aaeismacgychel

    ESPN’s actual headline: Kane Gives Hawks 3-0 Lead Over Wild.
    While true, something like CROW GOES BEAST MODE, RAMPAGES THROUGH LOCAL MINNESOTA HOCKEY RINK, DEVOURS ALL RESIDENTS would have been more on point

    • WookRN

      Had to read this aloud at my house….brilliant

  • seabsrat

    Solid game this evening on the road. Crow has really returned to a level of play we all knew we had. He’ll still get no credit, but we’ll know. Really glad Kane capitalized on that chance… that may be the only we way we can score on a power play, unfortunately. Rozsival didn’t suck major balls tonight so there’s that.

    Been a bit disappointed with Seabrook’s play (my namesake) this series, but I’m hoping it’s just a little hitch in the road.

    Also, I’m very drunk. Usually I just enjoy a few game beers, but somehow my friends snuck some more alcohol into me. The monkey did me in tonight. Let’s go hawks.

    Also, let’s go flames. At least make it a little challenging for Anaheim.

  • Spaceboy

    I have to share that my 17 y/o son could not stop laughing during the post game show every time they put up the banner saying goals scored in the series Kane: 4 Minnesota Wild: 4
    He kept spitting out “They’re comparing Kane to the entire Minnesota team? That’s hilarious. ” Great game tonight. The Crawford taunts were pathetic. Certainly bad karma for the Wild.
