• Sopel the catfish

    Whiskey flowing, shots have been taken, snacks will be opened, blood will be had. Let’s go Hawks!

    • WookRN

      Drink for me Sopel….

      • Sopel the catfish

        I would make a great pregnant lady with how good I am at drinking for two.

        • WookRN

          Fucking on call….

  • ZigZags82

    Let’s Go Hawks!

    Tight, disciplined, and play your game to advance to the Final! Redemption time!

  • seabsrat

    Truly, the anthem is never done better than by Cornelison at the madhouse.

    • RWCrum

      I have the Cornelison bobblehead. Its its on the coffee table during Hawk games, and I play it (it has a verse of the anthem on it) whenever the Hawks score.

  • To Saad be the glory

    Tazer!!

    • seabsrat

      Shake Andersen early!!

  • Sopel the catfish

    NUCLEAR OPTION

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Okay, 1st blood Now put pressure on Andersen. Make him feel the heat

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Alright, to the PP. MAKE THEM PAY! i.e. get Richards the puck

  • DJ

    Power play! Score here and really turn the screws.

  • DJ

    Pow!!!

  • The_Cheeb

    DDN= Dooms Day Nation

  • Aaeismacgychel

    GGOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAALLLLL! RICHARDS TO TOEWS

  • DJ

    Four consecutive goals for Tazer in this building

  • To Saad be the glory

    The Captain!

  • DJ

    Shots even, otherwise all Hawks

  • WookRN

    Captain Hat trick!?

  • Sopel the catfish

    OUR CAPTAIN IS BETTER THAN YOUR CAPTAIN

  • TitanTransistor

    Hawks had a 2-0 lead in the first last year’ game 7 too. Let’s see if they meant what they said about learning lessons.

    • WookRN

      Lessons of recent history.

    • Sopel the catfish

      Would you prefer they were down 0-2?

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Alright guys, keep the pressure on and snuff the life out of them

  • DJ

    Okay. That was good. We matched — if not surpassed — their intensity. You know they’re gonna amp it up at the start of the second; be prepared.

    Great work at the dot.

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Nice job, guys. 2-0 after 1. Now continue keeping the heat on. Make Andersen question his existence

  • Jim

    All right, 40 more minutes, more of the same, no letup

    • RWCrum

      All intensity , all the time.

  • The_Cheeb

    Jarmilsen?

    • seabsrat

      Hahaha Milbury calls him that ALWAYS.

    • Sopel the catfish

      Better than Doc’s Yaaaaaalmarrrrrrrson

  • DJ

    He’s trying to break Getzlaf. Every time he comes over the boards, Q sends Tazer over the boards.

    • Sopel the catfish

      Then Q will fake a Tazer and go with a Shawsie for the finishing move

  • The_Cheeb

    I agree with Sam’s tweet, Hawks better be perfect with those match up changes in p2, or stop it until p3. I have visions of 9 Hawks on the ice at once.

    • DJ

      Very true. Or, they’d get too cautious…and it’s a three on one toward Crow.

  • Icdws

    Ahhhh I’ve been in disqus hell. Great start. No let up now. Jones said he would go 17-15-10 to counter 20-19-88. Would bb ever do that?

    • Sopel the catfish

      BB could try but it wouldn’t work.

      • Icdws

        That’s what I thought too. U working the monkey? KNEEL!

        • Sopel the catfish

          No monkey tonight, rocking the Seabrook’s 7 same as last game (Seagram’s 7 and Root beer)

          • Icdws

            Great name. Hey how bout another goal?

    • DJ

      If he does, he fucks up his second line; Hoss/Richards/Bicks would have lots of fun.

  • DJ

    Boo-yah!!!

  • Sopel the catfish

    KNEEL BEFORE SAAD

  • Sopel the catfish

    NUCLEAR OPTION GOES NUCLEAR

  • Aaeismacgychel

    GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAALLLLLLL SAAD!!!!! FROM KANE!!!!

  • To Saad be the glory

    Kneel!

    • Icdws

      Fuckin A KNEEL

  • DJ

    Worst thing that could happen to Anaheim. Shitty bounce early in the period, and it ends up in the back of a wide open net.

  • seabsrat

    Holy assist, batman!

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Ah and the Craw-Ford chant. Cute.

  • HawkIPA

    Hawks are assassins tonight. My goodness. Keep it up, boys! No mercy!

  • TitanTransistor

    Keep it up. Do not blow this lead.

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Nice recovery, 26.

  • DJ

    It’s a quiet building. Now let’s make it a near-empty one (save for the Chicago expats)

  • DJ

    Keep this pressure up, boys.

    • Icdws

      They r at the tipping point

  • DJ

    10 shots for the Hawks. 3 goals.

  • Sopel the catfish

    Amazing team D for the Hawks there, keep it up

  • Icdws

    Every time I look up 11 is on the ice

  • seabsrat

    They’ve gotten away with interfering with our d men a few times now.

    • DJ

      Keep the pressure up and they may call a couple of them. Or we’ll bust through and get a fourth.

  • HawkIPA

    Hawks so disciplined so far – crow stepping up when he needs to. These guys are driven tonight.

    • WookRN

      Crow looks good. Hell, team looks good. Rundblad and Cumiskey are being consistent and not screwing up. No line looks BAD.

      GO HAWKS

      • DJ

        Having four effective lines has been our biggest advantage. The longer this series went, the more it revealed itself. Enough to win tonight?

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Great job, Crow. Keep this up, guys. Smart quick decisions and passes in your own zone. Keep Anaheim chasing bodies that are no longer there

  • Sopel the catfish

    Penisloaf trying to start shit and the one true Captain comes in to pull him away

  • HawkIPA

    Let’s break this wide open. No let up.

  • Jim

    Getzlaf, double snot shot, one from each nostril, farmers hanky.
    Nice job on national TV, asshole

    • Icdws

      A real class act

    • Sopel the catfish

      I can’t blame him for that, he does it every game and he’s not the only one

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Nice job by Perry punching the back of Crawford’s head

  • HawkIPA

    The odd man rushes are going to continue as the Ducks keep pressing with all 5. Going to end up in back of Andersen before too long

  • WookRN

    Crow never lost sight of the puck….tracked it perfect.

  • Icdws

    Withstand this rush and ducks will starting taking bad penalties. Crow needs to keep showing his pedigree

    • Nittacci

      It’s only a matter of time.

    • HawkIPA

      Crow hasn’t looked this dialed in since the Minnesota series. Supremely confident out there.

  • TitanTransistor

    Stop passing up shots on net!

    • seabsrat

      Seeing Sharp pass that chance up hurt real bad… They’re really trying to wait Andersen out.

  • Sopel the catfish

    Beleksy tries to throw an elbow on Showtime, gets knocked down by a player half his size. Suck a dick ducks.

  • HawkIPA

    Seven skaters! Come on!

  • Aaeismacgychel

    GOOOOOOAAAAAALLLL HOSSA!

  • Sopel the catfish

    HOSS IS BOSSSSSS

  • Nittacci

    Is it a goal? Tell me it’s a goal.

  • HawkIPA

    good goal? I don’t see a kicking motion

    • Jim

      I’ll be shocked if they allow it, but I agree no kick.

  • DJ

    Just when Murray was saying that Anaheim was increasing their energy…that happens. Let’s see if it’s upheld

  • Sopel the catfish

    Is that a kicking motion?

  • Aaeismacgychel

    They’re going to take it away

  • HawkIPA

    He keeps swinging the stick, trying to shoot it

  • DJ

    It’s very close

  • Sopel the catfish

    These refs have tried to suck off the ducks the same way pierre wants to blow the dead wings, not sure how they will rule this

  • DJ

    Yeah!

  • DJ

    No distinct kicking motion!

  • HawkIPA

    The crowd cheers. Love the Hawks presence in the stands

  • Aaeismacgychel

    HOLY FRAK! Did not see that coming

  • DJ

    Four goals on thirteen shots.

  • WookRN

    I’d call it a no goal….

    • Aaeismacgychel

      Me too. I’ll take it though.

      • DJ

        They did tweak the rule (or its interpretation). Changing the angle of your foot to deflect it in is okay now. There was some foot movement that could have been interpreted as a kick, but also as Hossa changing his angle to veer away from the goalie.

        • Aaeismacgychel

          Yeah, the rule change I know. I would say that that was as distinct a kicking motion without an obvious kick you can get. Borderline for sure but I would have called it no goal.

          • DJ

            Possibly. I suspect the crew in Toronto had a video prepared at the start of the season, demonstrating what is now a legal play.

    • HawkIPA

      Almost a coin flip for me, I think hossa’s continued efforts to shoot the puck gave it to him. Clearly wasn’t trying to kick in.

  • HawkIPA

    Hossa – merciless

  • Nittacci

    Now I’m having fun.

  • To Saad be the glory

    They were owed that one after game 6 no interference bullshit.

    • To Saad be the glory

      a.k.a. karma is a bitch.

      • WookRN

        Plus, after losing the New York market, I think the Nhl wants us in the big show….

        • DJ

          Perhaps. But this isn’t the NBA. There, referees can be incompetent or corrupt. In the NHL, if there’s something wrong, it’s merely the former.

        • Jim

          It wasn’t a kick. No conspiracy. I was surprised they did the right thing.

          • WookRN

            I know. I’m just surprised they didn’t play it “safe” and call no goal.

    • Aaeismacgychel

      Now that is true.

  • DJ

    Is that the back breaker?

  • TitanTransistor

    Keep pushing. Do not relent. This isn’t over yet.

  • Icdws

    I was just saying to the wife, hey haven’t seen Hossa much this period! That was the right call

  • Jim

    Anaheim is in a tough spot. Hawks can rope a dope them, then pounce on mistakes because the Ducks have to press. Ducks are screwed. Couldn’t happen to a bigger bunch of dickbags. Their strategy was to hurt people, and they tried. Fuck them. See you in the handshake line you bunch of aholes!

  • Icdws

    In the words of Gordon Gecko: greed is good. I want more goals!

  • HawkIPA

    The Ducks are going to start to get silly before too long. Watch out for the cheap shots. Stay on target

    • Icdws

      For sure. These guys are a not stable bunch

  • HawkIPA

    Scoreboard Beleskey – asshole

    • Jim

      These douchebags are still finishing their checks. Whatever it is they are doing is not really hockey in my view. I have no sympathy for Boudreau and his tactics.

  • Sopel the catfish

    Fuck you zebra, that is not a penalty

    • Aaeismacgychel

      Eh, it was. Just have to kill it off

      • Hockey Newbie

        I actaully think it looked like a pretty good hip check, but whatever. lose the battle ,win the war yadda yadda yadda.

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Damn. Kill this off.

  • DJ

    Kill this penalty. Extinguish their hope.

  • TitanTransistor

    …don’t let them have this life, Blackhawks.

  • Sopel the catfish
  • Aaeismacgychel

    Great job, Crow. Keep this up

  • DJ

    Saad! No goal, but draws penalty!

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Hell yeah! Great effing job

  • HawkIPA

    Ducks can’t even keep a powerplay. Meltdown in progress.

  • DJ

    Crap.

  • Sopel the catfish

    Weak shit

  • DJ

    Bear down

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Dammit.

  • Sopel the catfish

    Whatever, Hawks still kicking ass

  • TitanTransistor

    Goddamnit, you can’t give up a goal with under a minute to go in a period, for fucks sake. How many times is that now?

    • Sopel the catfish

      There was more than a minute left

    • HawkIPA

      Funky shot, it happens. Hawks aren’t paying it any mind

    • WookRN

      Whatever

    • Jim

      That was a tough angle. Some of them just get through.

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Guys, close this period out

  • HawkIPA

    Well shit, that won’t rattle these guys.

  • DJ

    Kessler you dumb fuck!!

  • DJ

    4×3 for the Hawks

  • TitanTransistor

    Please do something other than feeding Hossa at the point on this PP, I beg of you Blackhawks.

    • Sopel the catfish

      They’re 1 for 1 tonight, calm the fuck down bro

      • TitanTransistor

        We’ve all seen this team 5-on-3 and 4-on-3 before.

        The bigger the man advantage, the worse they play.

      • WookRN

        Let him Debbie Downer be.
        No one cares.

        • DJ

          And no one should. He was waving the surrender flag when we went down 3-0 in Game 5.

          • TitanTransistor

            Yep, was definitely proven wrong when they won that game.

            ….oh wait…

          • HawkIPA

            The board needs some pessimism for balance. My dad was a pessimist during the Jordan-era Bulls run. Everyone’s a fan in their own way.

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Okay. Pretty perfect shot by Kesler. 4-1 lead. Get over it and move on. Score on the 5 on 3 to make it 5-1 and take all life out of the building.

  • DJ

    Okay. A good second period. Cheap goal at the end, but still a good period. 5 on 3 to start the period for :39 seconds, on fresh ice. If we score on the PP..,

  • Jim

    Hawks have had like 6 breakaways with nothing to show. Elevate the GD puck into a corner! Anderson covers the ice level well, and some of those were right into his gut. I know, easier said than done.

    • TitanTransistor

      I really hope those missed breakaways don’t come back to bite us.

    • HawkIPA

      Wasn’t hossa’s goal on the rush? Can’t remember after all the replays

  • CurvedBlade

    Okay, everybody keep very calm. The hockey gods get very pissed if anybody celebrates before it’s over.

    Softie by crow. Shaking it off, and let’s have a strong 3rd.

    • Jim

      Maybe. anything can happen. But I’m going to enjoy the shit out of this lead while they have it.

  • B.I.G. Forever

    Getzlaf is shitting the bed and Corey Perry looks more like Steve Perry out there.

    Great game. Hawks firing on all cylinders. If I was Q I spend this break reminding this team that those Ducks scored 3 goals in #37seconds.

    • HawkIPA

      Don’t insult Steve Perry like that. Corey is an insult to the name

    • Jim

      Couldn’t happen to nicer guys. At least the Kings weren’t so hateable. Well maybe Dusitn Browns…

      • HawkIPA

        And the Voynovs but we didn’t know about that at the time

      • B.I.G. Forever

        Agreed. These guys play physical but dirty. Reminds me of a Vancouver team of yore. Ahhhh the Canucks. *smiles*

      • WookRN

        Yeah. Even after we lost to the kings, I still cheered for em in the finals.

  • Jim

    Getzlaf -5 ho ho ho

    • TitanTransistor

      How is that possible when the Hawks have only scored 4 goals? Unless I fell asleep and missed one…

      • HawkIPA

        G6 and G7

      • CurvedBlade

        Yep – break aways by kane, saad and keith. Could easily have 2-3 more.

        Please don’t get angry hockey gods. I am merely stating what could be, not what is expected. We are very grateful for your kindness.

  • The_Cheeb

    This just in……Getzlaf stinks……

    • HawkIPA

      The Arod of the NHL

    • Jim

      What about Perry? I haven’t even noticed him (except for his cheap shots after a Hawk has dumped the puck)

      • HawkIPA

        Crow’s rebound control and Hawks D have entirely taken away his game

        • Jim

          Yea, he likes to camp in front of the net.

        • CurvedBlade

          Ducks completely forgot about their strategy of punishing the hawk d-men. Their forecheck has not been the mad scramble of the earlier games. Burned themselves out?

      • WookRN

        How about Kesler to neutralize Toews…. How’s THAT going?

  • HawkIPA

    Ducks response is to throw everything at the Hawks, which they’ve done, and they lost the 2nd 2-1. Odd man rushes will continue. D needs to stay disciplined, Crow is not going to let us down. Onward

    • DJ

      To continue having those odd-man rushes, we need to keep winning board battles. They’re going to really throw everything into those.

      • HawkIPA

        Agreed – are the Ducks disciplined enough to play the puck on the boards instead of focus on the hit? Haven’t shown that yet tonight

        • WookRN

          HITZ MATTER!!! THATZ HOW U WIN

  • ZigZags82

    Let’s Go Hawks!

    Tight, disciplined, and play your game for one more period to advance to the Final! Sense of urgency!

  • Sopel the catfish

    I’m looking for Teuvo and Vermette to make the next sweet play, 3rd period here we come

  • The Gatest Gamer

    Had work outing earlier. 8 slabs of ribs, huge brisket, tons of other food and booze. I’m full, drunk and happy. Hawks are doing great, I will be getting drunk. Kids need to be put to bed, which I will do while having my laptop with NBC streaming.

    Cheers y’all and let’s go hawks!!!!!!!!

    • Sopel the catfish

      Amen!!

      • To Saad be the glory

        Yer not drunk til ya start typing in all caps eh!

        • Sopel the catfish

          YOU MEAN LIKE THIS? I LOOOOOOVES MAH WHISKEY, AND I’VE BEEN GOING FASTER TOINGHT

  • B.I.G. Forever

    So now I’m thinking about this Tampa matchup. Kinda don’t think they have a punchers chance against Nuclear Lines. 3 Cups in 5 years in this Cap environment….means….#Dynasty

    • TitanTransistor

      One game at a time. We’ve seen 3 goals scored against this team in one period before…

      • B.I.G. Forever

        “Dreams make life tolerable…”

        -‘Rudy’

        • TitanTransistor

          They can also lead to heartbreak. Live for the moment.

    • DJ

      Not. Over. Yet.

    • Jim

      Plenty of time for that. This is all about trolling Anaheim.

    • HawkIPA

      Easy! Let’s win first

    • B.I.G. Forever

      Sorry guys the Lagunitas has me jumpy for Cups.

  • DJ

    Needs to be the best period of the game, Hawks.

    • HawkIPA

      Killer instinct

  • HawkIPA

    Damn – Toews had an open net

  • HawkIPA

    Richards – unsung hero of this series

    • Aaeismacgychel

      Absolutely. One of the best players in this series and for the Hawks in the playoffs in general

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Brad Richards is a PP beast.

  • B.I.G. Forever
  • Aaeismacgychel

    Kane playing defense like Hossa there coming back to the puck

  • Icdws

    Keep the play in their zone. Now Kessler won’t be on the ice without 19 on his ass

  • HawkIPA

    D is allowing nothing right now

  • Doog

    Did Bickell get hurt? He’s gotten less ice time than Rundblad.

    • WookRN

      Think he got hurt like ten games ago.

    • Aaeismacgychel

      That’s the guess. I think really he’s been hurt this whole time and Q is resting him

    • B.I.G. Forever

      Bickell is definitely injured and has been this entire series…maybe longer. I felt he was hurt in Game 1.

    • TitanTransistor

      I think he got hurt the 1st or 2nd game of this series in a collision with Belesky. Hasn’t looked the same since.

    • DJ

      They were discussing that on the radio intermission. Murray said Bickell isn’t producing, and Q can’t wait for him. Said he’ll sit this period unless the game gets out of hand.

      • TitanTransistor

        I think Murray is off base. Bickell not producing isn’t the issue, it’s the fact that he’s losing board battles a ton that’s making him a liability. Bickell has many weaknesses as a player, but being soft of the boards isn’t his MO. I think he’s injured….unfortunately an injured Bickell is roughly 2x better than a healthy Versteeg.

        • DJ

          I was away from the radio and only caught the last part. Murray may have prefaced his comments by mentioning a possible injury.

  • HawkIPA

    Defensive clinic by the Hawks. This is how to close it out.

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Good start to this period. Keep it up Hawks. Keep making those smart quick decisions with the puck. Anaheim simply isn’t fast enough to forecheck when the puck isn’t on a Hawk stick for anything more than a second.

  • Aaeismacgychel

    What an effing shift

  • HawkIPA

    Norhing left from the boys in black

  • B.I.G. Forever

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MPoit_51ac4 BlackHawks playing on another level.

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Great job Kyle. Really great job there. Terrific close off on Maroon

  • CurvedBlade

    When did carolina come to CA and put on the duck sweaters?

  • Sopel the catfish

    Keep up the pressure Blackhawks

  • HawkIPA

    Kesler, wondering what could have been?

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Nice job Crow. Real strong

  • TitanTransistor

    I’m pretty sure my condo is approaching the speed of light. Only feasible reason why time is passing SO FUCKING SLOW.

    • DJ

      Remember, if that’s the case, your condo is shrinking and your mass is increasing to infinity. If you can reach for a beverage, you’re okay.

    • seabsrat

      Whoa, getting all relative here.

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Okay, guys. No quality chances like those last 3 Crawford bailed you out of. 9:30 to go. Effing take it to them. None of this prevent garbage

    • Jim

      He can stop them if he can see them. it’s the screens that have been a problem. But the Ducks are having to play a wide open game, and it’s not working.

  • Jim

    31-0 this year when leading after 2 periods.

    Piss on the fire and call in the dogs, this one’s over except for the crying.
    Enjoy this boys (and girls)

    • Sopel the catfish

      Slow your roll for a moment, I believe the Hawks will win this game but it is not over yet.

    • TitanTransistor

      Yes, but that doesn’t mean OT is out of the question. We’ve seen this team give up 3 in succession a few times this post-season.

  • HawkIPA

    Crows been so focused on the rebounds tonight. I can’t remember 1 second chance for the ducks.

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Damn. That was not good

  • DJ

    Shit. 8:24 left, 4-2.

    Got too greedy looking for an odd-man advantage. Now you might really have to sit back, which could play to their advantage.

  • TitanTransistor

    Unbelievable. This team’s capacity for sitting back and giving up leads is unbelievable.

  • Sopel the catfish

    Whatever, Perry is a douche, Hawks still have the lead and will respond accordingly

  • DJ

    Hawks draw a penalty.

  • HawkIPA

    Hossa says no!

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Marian effing Hossa. What a job.

  • TitanTransistor

    Nice job Hossa

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Score here, Hawks

  • TitanTransistor

    Please score here, Blackhawks

  • DJ

    BOOM

      You know what, based on what the Hawks have done to the Ducks thus far, it probably is their best option. Definitely can’t wait until it’s past 4 minutes

      • DJ

        You see this in NCAA playoff hockey. Might as well…

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Keith skated right through the net. He might be wearing down lol

  • Lionel Hutz

    Four Roses Single Barrel. Private Selection coming up.

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Helll of a back to back shift, guys

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Andersen is in his own effing head right now. Not even paying attention to the game situation. Love it.

  • Jim

    Buh Bye BB (Bruce Budreau)

    Nice try with the Goon Tactics. 0-6 now in Game 7s

    I wouldn’t touch Getzlaf’s hands in the handshake line. He has boogers on them.

  • HawkIPA

    This is how you win a Game 7 on the road.

  • HawkIPA

    No repeat of Minny G4 please

  • DJ

    Stop cheating on defense. You don’t need six. You need to keep them from scoring.

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Crow effing stoned him

  • Sopel the catfish

    COREY CRAWFORD IS GOOD AT HOCKEY. IF YOU DON’T BELIEVE ME, PLEASE INSERT A HOT IRON INTO YOUR RECTUM AND MOVE TO VACOUVER

  • Jim

    Kruger hurt. friggin ducks

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Everything but the finish, Brad, haha

  • HawkIPA

    Get 6. I miss DLR

  • DJ

    Crap. Delay of game. 6×4 coming.

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Ugh Johnny. And no Krugs…

  • Sopel the catfish

    Whatever, now they ice it

  • HawkIPA

    Whatever

  • Sopel the catfish

    Whatever, makes no difference

    • Jim

      ovah

  • Jim

    Richards, are you watching Bickell video on empty netters?

  • DJ

    :41. 5-3

  • DJ

    Goodbye Anaheim

  • TitanTransistor

    Hawks WIN!

  • CurvedBlade

    Ha ha ha. Our guys look really TIRED. You know, the d-men who played all those minutes and took hits no human could withstand.

    Fuck you ducks. Enjoy your reputation FOR CHOKING 3 years in a row.

  • Aaeismacgychel

    TO THE FINALS!!!

  • Cbeezly

    Duck the fucks

    • ChiCityKyle

      Kessler’s record in game 6 n 7s are fun to look at. *see Boston vs vancouver cup final

  • DJ

    The longer this series took, the more the cream rose to the top. And did it ever. The better team won.

  • HawkIPA

    This team. Made of steel

  • DJ

    NEVER STOP FIGHTING UNTIL THE FIGHT IS DONE!

    HERE ENDETH THE LESSON,

  • Aaeismacgychel

    You want to know why the Ducks lost? They thought hitting the body was more important than playing the puck in Game 7 against a team who came out playing fast hockey. You can’t hit what isn’t there.

    • HawkIPA

      Every team that’s tried that has failed. TB will be smarter, but we can rise to the occasion

  • Jim

    Pretty salty handshake line.

  • Sopel the catfish

    I hope Corey perry is injured in a house fire this weekend.

    • TitanTransistor

      I hate Perry far less than I hate Kesler.

      • HawkIPA

        I hate Kesler, but I respect him.

        • Brandon Murray

          I used to respect him until this series & all his cheap shots. Fuck him!

  • The Gatest Gamer

    tomorrow will be bad

  • Sopel the catfish

    Keep throwing your towels ducks fans

    • Aaeismacgychel

      Maybe they’ll collect them and donate them as clothing to the dogs in the Sarah Mclachlan commercials

    • D_Smith

      Yep pretty poor reflection on their fans. Something I’d expect in STL.

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Nice fans throwing stuff. Even Philly had more class than to do that

  • Bob Lanz

    Just enjoy it boys! That was the most complete game I have ever seen them play in the playoff. It was never in doubt oh my Hossa they are good

  • HossasPierogi

    Edzo just said something completely
    Idiotic even for Edzo. Perry and Getzlaf got the best of Kane and Toews? WTF was he watching?

    • Aaeismacgychel

      He said early in the series. I completely disagree as far as Toews is concerned but Kane did struggle hard early. That said, pure domination at the end of the series.

      • HossasPierogi

        Just totaled up the numbers:
        Last two games: Toews 2 points (game 7 goals) +3, Kane 5 points +2, Getzlaf 1 point -4, Perry 1 point -4, Kesler 1 point -1. Toews Kane clearly dominate there.

        First five games: Toews 5 points, -1, Kane 2 points -4, Getzlaf 7 points +3, Perry 2 points +2, Kesler 3 points Even.
        So yes, I guess I’d give the Ducks trio a slight edge

  • HawkIPA

    Great game plan by Q. Credit where it’s due. Matchups threw BB from the opening faceoff

    • Bob Lanz

      He recovered nicely from his game 3 gaffe

  • DJ

    Emilio Estevez is getting another reminder that karma is a bee-yotch!!

    • HawkIPA

      Only celebrity fan that’s worse than Jim Belushi

  • CurvedBlade

    Ha ha ha. Our guys looked really TIRED. You know, the d-men who played all those minutes and took hits no human could withstand.

    Fuck you ducks. Enjoy your reputation FOR CHOKING 3 years in a row.

    • Bob Lanz

      And many fucks to Kessler too

    • DJ

      Three years of losing Game 6 and 7 AND having Game 7 at home. If I was a Duck fan, that would be intolerable b

    • Jim

      Didn’t see this much hate for Nashville or Minnesota.

      The Ducks are a gaggle of shit bags. Good Riddance. Bye Bye.

  • Brandon Murray

    The Ducks have depth.
    The Ducks are physical.
    The Ducks traded for Kesler to win the Cup.
    The Ducks have controlled the series.
    The Ducks have more depth on D.

    The Hawks are Western. Conference. Champions. Hell to the mother fucking yeah! I love this group of guys! Fuck you & let’s win 4 more.

  • Aaeismacgychel

    Q forced BB to make line changes around matchups, something that is a well well known deficiency in BB’s coaching ability. How crazy is it after Game 3 are we sitting here clearly and distinctly saying that Q absolutely outcoached BB.

  • seabsrat

    Holy shit did Toews play a great game or what?

    • Aaeismacgychel

      He led, but the whole team from the coach on down. Just professionals coming out and taking care of business tonight. They didn’t play around. Smart polished game from everyone. Really hard to beat this team when they play like this.

    • CurvedBlade

      Kane got called out for a lot of great defensive plays. That was because the entire series every announcer on NBC and CBC confused TT with Kane.

    • Jim

      Messier still pondering his leadership award. Really? Toews or Getzlaf?

      • seabsrat

        Getzlaf is great at leading his team early to the driving range. Messier has to take all leadership qualities into account.

  • Sopel the catfish

    Corey Crawford is an average goalie, Hawks D was playing too much, ducks were sooo deep Hawks couldn’t keep up with them, I can’t wait to hear how much better Tampa is than Chicago.

  • Sopel the catfish

    WATCH OUT EVERYONE, SELF UPBOATS MAY BE COMING

  • PuttingOnTheFoil77

    Fuck Perry!

  • HawkIPA

    Third star for Richards. Well deserved

    • Aaeismacgychel

      I wouldn’t have given him one of the top 3 stars for this game, but he absolutely deserved it. He had another heck of a game as he has had all playoffs.

  • cza

    Love that Toews used the past tense with Pierre: “They were a good team.”

  • To Saad be the glory

    Well,at least the Western Conference has their own Crosby and Malkin now.

  • Aaeismacgychel

    It’s okay, I’m sure all those Ducks hits will really slow down and tire the Hawks in Game 8. I mean no human can withstand it. Oh wait…

  • Dangles-a-Plenty

    That was as dominate a game 7 as a team could play. And we knew the Hawks had that in the tank. God damn do these motherfuckers know how to close out a series! COREY PERRY GET FUCKED YOU DOUCHELORD ASSHOLE! SO GOOD, BUT NOT GOOD ENOUGH YOU DIRTY FUCKING SCUMBAG! Back to the Final. Here we fucking go, boys!

    • Jim

      I think you are actually being too kind to Corey Perry.

    • Sopel the catfish

      COREY PERRY SUCKS

  • Brandon Murray

    Where you at Gordon Bombay?

    • Aaeismacgychel

      Missing that triple deke in the State Finals?

    O Captain! my Captain! our fearful trip is ALMOST done,
    The ship WILL weather ONE MORE rack, the prize we SEEK SHALL BE won,
    The CUP is near, the HORN I hear, the people all exulting,

    I said a few games ago that the only thing we hadn’t seen was a dominant performance from start to finish and I’ll be damned if those bastards didn’t pull it out in the biggest stage at the biggest moment of the playoffs.

    I. Love. This. Team. 1 more Cup before the band is broken up forever. Let’s Go Hawks!
    Write the recap now, I gots to read more about the demise of Penisloaf, Captain GetzNONE, & Ryan “Ball-Gobbling, Cock-Jibbering” Kesler.

    • Sopel the catfish

      The only correction I have is “1 more Cup before the band is broken up”. False, this core will continue to press forward. The Hawks are The Hawks, let’s fucking do this.

  • SAMCRO Outlaw

        • PE-TER RE-GIN

          I work pretty much every game night (including this one), so I’m not here much. But I’m sufficiently boozed up now for some celebration

          • Sopel the catfish

            works for me fuck yea, just don’t call it a celly or I’ll have to punch you.

          • PE-TER RE-GIN

            We don’t pull that shit here. Gary Bettman should be proud…they’d be all about a “celly” in Anaheim.

          • Sopel the catfish
          • PE-TER RE-GIN

            Unfortunately, I’m pretty sure Kesler was really into the first couple lines of this song. If only he had hit more people in the mouth, maybe the Ducks would be moving on to the least-watched Final ever.

          • Sopel the catfish

            The whole song is soooooooo good, I’m just glad Kessler didn’t listen to the entire thing

          • Sopel the catfish

            “He called me a rapist and a recluse….I’m not a recluse…”

      Oldie but a fucking goodie

      • cza

        Absurdly prescient.

    • PE-TER RE-GIN

      He went from diving with those ducks to trying to murder them. How did he ever get so astray?

  • Sopel the catfish

    I’m in too good of a mood and I don’t have to work, so everyone just has to deal with it.

  • Sopel the catfish

    I will continue with the self up boats, ain’t nobody gonna stop be tonight, just like they couldn’t stop me after gmae 6

    • PE-TER RE-GIN

      Got your back until I fall asleep. Sopel helped us win Game 5 against Nashville in 2010.

      • Sopel the catfish

        That game and that penalty kill is the reason why my avatar is what it is and why I have a red Sopel #5 with SCF patch. I did declare to a few people before game 4 that if this series went how it needed to I would be getting a Saad 20. I’m thinking red as well.

        • PE-TER RE-GIN

          Saad would be a fantastic choice. I have a red shirt of his, and I’m pretty sure he’ll be a ’Hawk for life

          • Sopel the catfish

            I wore my red Saad Shirsey (shi-jersey I dunno how the fuck to type it) under the winning jersey the last few games. It affirmed my necessity to get an actual Saad.

          • PE-TER RE-GIN

            I’ve gone with my black Toews the last two games (even at work tonight). Always loved the old black alternates. I may have to sneak it under a regular work shirt Wednesday.

          • Sopel the catfish

            I wore my generic black third jersey (the alternate from 2011 I think) at work on Wednesday (our official dress code is business casual). Not a word was said to me, and Hawks forced game 7. I like the company I work for.

          • WookRN

            I have a generic Winter Classic black sweater I’ve worn every playoff game I’ve worked since I got it (2010???) It’s my ” hospital sweater” since its and ICU, it stays for the post season.

          • WookRN

            I hope like hell he stays.

    • PE-TER RE-GIN

  • Sopel the catfish

    So I hate internet bullshit, I hate social media, and I hate stupid shit in general. The one thing I do talk about the the ” ‘Hawks website” I go to. I try not to live “in” the internet, but this site is where I actually interact with people, and it does bring a smile to my face for every stupid useless upboat or dumb post I put up. Thank all y’all for putting up with my shit (not that you have a choice) and being the best drunk idiots I could wish for as friends. I really need to make it to one of these road watch parties (with a cab ride home, I ain’t no dummy and not gonna get a DUI). 4 more wins to bring the chalice home, Bolts are a tough challenge and we can’t count on them douching out like the ducks did.

  • Sopel the catfish
