  • Chesterfield King

    MOAR HAWKS GOALS

    MOAOOOOOOOAOAAAAAAARRRRR

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Saad’s first to tie it, Kieth with the game winner.

    • BodomSlayer

      I would laugh my ass off at the latter happening.

      • Chesterfield King

        it will

        • BodomSlayer

          My fingers are crossed. Imagine the boo birds raining down!

  • Chesterfield King

    Maybe it’s the alcohol and the tasty as fuck bagel, but everything is just making me giggle

    • http://www.facebook.com/hair.helmet Hair Helmet

      What was in that bagel?

    • Z-man19

      You sure that bagel was legit?

      • DesertHawk

        It is an ill-gotten bagel.

        • Chesterfield King

          Nah, I already ate all of those

          • DesertHawk

            Damn!

          • Chesterfield King

            I’m a growing boy. By growing, I mean growing super fat

          • DesertHawk

            I know that feel.

        • BodomSlayer

          Reminds me of a customer of mine…we call him Huff the Magic Dragon.

        • Z-man19

          I’m wondering about the content of said bagel

          • DesertHawk

            Who what?

      • chidiver

        Amsterdam bagel

        • Chesterfield King

          I’d probably eat that too

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

    Bright side is only being down one when playing not so awesome?
    If I recall, first game against them last season wasn’t very pretty at all.

    • stacie7

      If I recall we lost but it was a very tight game. Very fast with lots of scoring chances.

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

        I’m feeling like they (Nucks) got six in that one, but I could just be mixing everything together.

        • stacie7

          I could be wrong. Sometimes my years and games run together, but I thought I was in Colorado for that game and it wasn’t a blow out if I’m correct.

  • Steveholt

    Kaner with the GTG, book it

  • justforkicks

    NEW THREAD KARMA
    LETS GO BLACK HAWKS

    • BodomSlayer

      This….all of this!

      • QCBlackhawk

        No more speaking of He Who Shall Not Be Named.

        But I DO think it’s funny that he shows up for the Van Chi game… hmmmm

  • AMR

    I don’t care who scores for the hawks as long as someone does and that goals ties it

  • Chesterfield King

    I FEEL GOOD

  • chidiver

    So there’s probably a story here, but why don’t the TOS come play in the very sandbox they’ve built?

    • justforkicks

      i think the last time i saw them in a GDT was in the beloved losing streak ending all green threaded rangers gdt

      • BodomSlayer

        What a great time that was.

    • Chesterfield King

      Hack was usually the only one to comment in threads, as I recall

    • stacie7

      They like to twitter. I think they peruse the sandbox but only comment if something strikes them.

      • chidiver

        How MSM of them ;-)

      • ahnfire

        also, they tend to go to bars to watch together.

        • chidiver

          How cute. Mobile commenting….forget it.

          • DesertHawk

            I can’t even log in from my phone…

  • johnnybot13

    sure, a goal would be nice…but how about a faceoff win? Looking at you 36.

  • Chesterfield King

    RALLY RATS

    • Chesterfield King

      ALL SIGNS POINT TOWARDS INEVITABLE POINT-GETTING

  • BodomSlayer

    I’d like to see Saad score a goal…or twelve!

    • Minorhawk

      Great minds think alike

      • BodomSlayer

        I noticed that!

  • Minorhawk

    Saad for the tie…Coming up here.

  • Woods

    LET’S GO HAWKS

  • kcrvpn

    I would have thought that Saad had more than 8 minutes.

  • thepuckstopshere

    revenge is a very very dangerous motivation

  • happyhuman

    Hey guys, Lu has a shutout.

    • Chesterfield King

      HE DOES HAVE A SHUTOUT?

      • happyhuman

        Yup, a SHUTOUT.

        • Chesterfield King

          Bummer he hasn’t let any through because he has a SHUTOUT

    • CornelisonsFlagPointer

      Jinxed it ;-)

  • Woods

    Wraparound no work

  • CozBullsFan

    Let’s go Hawks!

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    Hey guys, I’m late to the party tonight! Hopefully this game shuts up the people who have called for Saad’s demotion.

    • BodomSlayer

      Anyone who has done that is a meat-head moron.

    • Chesterfield King

      anyone who threatens my saad will get their throats slit

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    If this were a work night, I’d say fuck it.

  • mt

    perhaps someone already asked, but why does vancouver have a nearsighted drunk working the center ice camera?

  • QCBlackhawk

    Hit on Bolland as he was leaving the ice? What a bunch of shitbags

  • Minorhawk

    Bet it was a cheap shot on Bolland

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

    God their fans absolutely grate on my nerves.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Once more chance for Clown Shoes to redeem

  • kcrvpn

    Shit, Bolland is hurt

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    No, Bolly!

  • Chesterfield King

    LOL @ YOU VANCOUVER

  • stacie7

    Noooo Bolland down

  • Chesterfield King

    shit

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    P.S. Burrows is and always has been a massive douche.

    • QCBlackhawk

      The Lord of Douche.

  • justforkicks

    and now bolly hurt

  • Woods

    last thing we need is an injury.. hope that’s not serious

    • stacie7

      Limping didn’t look good

  • Chesterfield King

    Didn’t look like anyone hit him

  • justforkicks

    fuck everything

    • Chesterfield King

      ok brb

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    Let’s see if clown shoes can do anything…

  • Z-man19

    Cue the Hawks C issues

  • BodomSlayer

    Come on clown shoes!

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Which team is on the PP?

  • Woods

    Vancouver fans sure are good at booing

    • QCBlackhawk

      Crying.

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      They’ve had lots of practice.

      • Chesterfield King

        yeah, not much else they can do

    • thepuckstopshere

      and burning shit

  • Chesterfield King

    kane what was with that cutesy shit

  • ahnfire

    OH MY GOD, HAWKS, DO SOMETHING WITH THIS.

  • Woods

    Wait, is this a power play?

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    Ugh, this PP feels so painful to watch…

  • Woods

    I’m sorry for the negativity, but the Hawks have no game tonight.

  • ahnfire

    ugh Hawks. this is horseshit.

  • chidiver

    Sooo…..aren’t power plays supposed to be good?

  • Chesterfield King

    I’m still feeling confident

  • ahnfire

    oh fuck you Nuck fans, taunting Crow.

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    The Hawks seem allergic to the neutral zone tonight.

    • girlphoenix

      Hawks seem allergic to hockey tonight.

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

    That was beautiful.

  • Woods

    Boo away crybabies

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    Aaaaaaaand the force stretch passes begin…

  • Chesterfield King

    HAHAHAHAHAHA

  • BodomSlayer

    Fuck these idiot fans.

  • Woods

    ONE GOAL

  • stacie7

    Kind of shocked no goalie interference on that one

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    My Q trigger finger is starting to get itchy again…

  • Chesterfield King

    13 minutes left to score one goal. We can do this.

  • BodomSlayer

    Do we see the patented Joel Q Line Juggler?

  • ahnfire

    Shaw taking Bolland’s spot on the 2nd line…

    • BodomSlayer

      I’d rather give it to Krueger…

      • ahnfire

        Poor Frogger. Does everything right but loses to Shaw. :|

        • BodomSlayer

          I wouldn’t mind watching Shaw get his face smashed in…Whenever I watched him in Rockford he was just kind of…dumb…

    • DesertHawk

      Hngghh

  • Woods

    sweet entry bickell

  • BodomSlayer

    And here comes the Vancouver douchery…

  • DesertHawk

    That was directly into the numbers…. isn’t that against the rules?

    • girlphoenix

      depends who does it

      • DesertHawk

        Noted.

      • stacie7

        Not according to Edzo

  • Woods

    hitting!

    • Woods

      HITS:

      Canucks: 104
      Hawks: 6

      • stacie7

        like we have 6 hits

        • BodomSlayer

          S/He was being generous.

    • thepuckstopshere

      next scoring

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    Shaw is the Nate Robinson of the Hawks.

    • Chesterfield King

      Nate is more consistent, shockingly

      • dirkgrahamsmustache

        Both have small statures, the kind of skill set that catches the eye of the casual fan, and a nagging propensity for turnovers…

        • Chesterfield King

          Well, Nate has been effective in streaks for the Bulls this season, especially with Kirk in and out.

          I just don’t think Shaw’s skillset justifies his prominence

          • DesertHawk

            You were saying?

          • Chesterfield King

            He shouldn’t be on the third line, still.

          • DesertHawk

            He knew and he got the assist to spite you.

          • Chesterfield King

            Look, if he wants to go 11-24-35, I’ll gladly retract it

          • dirkgrahamsmustache

            Fair point, in actuality, Shaw doesn’t really have much of a skill set…

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    The only two I’ve seen skate with consistent energy are Toews and Saad.

  • Woods

    So, who wants to score for the Hawks? Seriously, anybody can score… who wants it!?!??!

  • BodomSlayer

    I’d like to see Toews channel his inner game 7 2011 ha ha!

  • Chesterfield King

    I FEEL FINE

  • Woods

    HOW ABOUT A DIRTY GOAL

    • BodomSlayer

      Like The Big Dirty?

      • Woods

        DIRTY 88

    • kcrvpn

      Ask and ye shall recieve

  • justforkicks

    would love some ddn or 88-81 or even 88-20 right about now.

  • BodomSlayer

    KANER!!!!!!

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Kaner!

  • chidiver

    Kaner!!!!!!!

  • Steveholt

    CALLED IT

  • Woods

    OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG THE BLACKHAWKS ARE THERE

  • amontesawesome

    Ha! Maybe Shaw is the answer to how to fix the 2nd line.

  • stacie7

    Tied game bitches!

  • ahnfire

    THANK YOU KANER

  • Chesterfield King

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA AHAHAHAHAHAH YOU FUCKERS

  • 2883

    Black Magic from the little engine that could

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    Yes, now we can paper over the problems this game exposed!

    • Chesterfield King

      oh boohoo

    • DesertHawk

      Just like I like it, willful oblivion.

    • Woods

      PROBLEMS?

    • amontesawesome

      What problems have been exposed this game?

      • DesertHawk

        Big ones, with the stuff!!

      • dirkgrahamsmustache

        Seriously? The general ineffectiveness of the second line. The continued clown shoes powerplay. The inability to penetrate the neutral zone that hinders offensive zone entry. The tendency for the forwards to drift toward the blue line and prompt attempts at stretch passes by the d-men. Abysmal face-off percentages by everyone not named “Toews”. Of the problems we had last year, the ones that actually appear solved – Crow, the d corps, and the PK – haven’t really improved thanks to the coaching staff they have due to personnel.

        • Chesterfield King

          yeesh

  • Chesterfield King

    BAGELS MOTHERFUCKER

  • Z-man19

    WTF

  • BodomSlayer

    Score a goal…take a penalty…awesome. Way to go!

  • 2883

    Terrible time to take a fucking peanlty

  • justforkicks

    SHITTY ANGLE< GREAT GOAL, YAY KANER

  • kcrvpn

    That about sums this game up.

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

    Okay. In the past, when it’s looking like the puck will never go in, I change the channel, and they score.
    Guess who just switched back to CSN?

  • http://www.facebook.com/jimmy.cook.5621 Jimmy Cook

    kaner!!!!!!!!!!!

  • justforkicks

    WTF?????

  • ahnfire

    BAD FROGGER.

    • ahnfire

      wait, on that replay, I saw NOTHING. WTF REFS? I NEED A NEW ANGLE ON THAT.

  • Z-man19

    That is a load of shit

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Get Bobby Lou moving side to side, just like Edzo said.

    How the hell is that a penalty?

  • Woods

    high stick?

  • BodomSlayer

    Looks like a make up call for the non goal tender interference call.

  • chidiver

    I fuckin hate FO high sticks!

    • stacie7

      How does that even happen?

      • http://www.facebook.com/hair.helmet Hair Helmet

  • girlphoenix

  • putmeinthemadhouse

    wtf was that call

  • stacie7

    Now Seabs is limping?

    • justforkicks

      from a blocked shot?

      • stacie7

        think so

  • BodomSlayer

    UGGGGGGH!!! FRO!!!!!

  • Woods

    god fucking damnit frolik

  • Z-man19

    FUCK FUCK FUCK

    • BodomSlayer

      That’s two shit penalties for Fro two games in a row.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    What the Fuck…. Where is our fucking head?

  • Woods

    those are two weak weak penalties

  • 2883

    That’s awful… bad shit there

  • happyhuman

    Oy vey

  • kcrvpn

    Oh man, how could Frolik do that!

  • stacie7

    Why hockey gods why?

  • kcrvpn

    Hossa killed that 2 man by himself

            no, it really does. this is hilarious

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

      • ahnfire

        *glare*

        • 2883

          You scare people, glaring at them isn’t going to help

          • ahnfire

            pff. get over it. :P

          • DesertHawk

            I believe you meant *glare*

            mmm, no, I said what I meant.

  • thepuckstopshere

    soooooooooooo, were due for a call or two?

  • CornelisonsFlagPointer

    I kill you

  • Woods

    Saad is a forechecking maniac

  • thepuckstopshere

    Chicago is a killin machine!

  • Woods

    How about Sharpie with the GWG just cause?

    • Chesterfield King

      i diggit

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Now for the back breaker, let’s build off that kill.

    • http://www.facebook.com/hair.helmet Hair Helmet

      wait. Let’s build off this kill. The more we build off of, the stronger, right?

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Pass happy.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Another PK coming.

  • Woods

    wtf

  • http://www.facebook.com/hair.helmet Hair Helmet

    The Thumbs Line

  • BodomSlayer

    Oh come on with these penalties guys…really.

  • Z-man19

    Mother of Fuck

  • Woods

    lots of make up calls here or what

  • Chesterfield King

    YEEEEEE BOY

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Tie the game. Three penalties in five minutes.

    • BodomSlayer

      It’s our patented system…doing it on purpose lol.

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

      They just wanna prove that other people get stopped on Power Plays too.

  • Minorhawk

    Hossa with the shortie for the win…

    • thepuckstopshere

      that will work!

  • happyhuman

    sigh

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    Who else wanted to throw something at the TV every time they heard Pierre spew his drivel during Wednesday’s game?

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Every game.

    • girlphoenix

      luckily that’s all pierre was spewing

    • Chesterfield King

      HEY EDZO CAN I GAZE INTO YOUR EYES AND RIDE OFF INTO THE SUNSET WITH YOU

      • dirkgrahamsmustache

        LOL! Yes! Why did he feel the need to appeal to Eddie’s sensibilities after what seemed like all of his comments?

    • dirkgrahamsmustache

      First, he acted like Shaw resembles a Hawks version of Ryan Callahan. Then, he portrayed Oduya as the second coming of Lidstrom and acted like they got him for such a steal (after which, he promptly served up the turnover that led to the game-tying goal).

  • ahnfire

    holy fuck Hawks, how about you NOT give the Nucks more chances?

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      One of the keys was to stay out of the box against these guys…. sigh.
      We’re killing penalties, but we’re not likely to score the game winner like this.

  • justforkicks

    and another fucking penalty

  • putmeinthemadhouse

    I went out and got rally snacks. They served their purpose.

    • Chesterfield King

      niceee

  • DesertHawk

    How bout crow though?

    • Chesterfield King

      that was really really key

      • DesertHawk

        I liked the little blocker stick hand save while laying on the Canuck.

      • BodomSlayer

        Go fucking get more!

  • BodomSlayer

    Come on Hawks kill this penalty…with fire and death!

  • Chesterfield King

    HEEEEEYYYYYYY CLEARED IT OUTTA THERE

  • BodomSlayer

    My nerves…

    • thepuckstopshere

      drink more

      • BodomSlayer

        I don’t drink…

        • DesertHawk

          water?

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Good job, Crow.

  • Chesterfield King

    mah boy crawford

  • BodomSlayer

    Man I think that’s the first time I heard Bieksas name..

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    I’d love to have Raymond on our team…

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      I’d love to have Luongo on the Leafs.

      • DesertHawk

        haha

    • amontesawesome

      As what?

      • dirkgrahamsmustache

        I just love his speed.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Crow again, in traffic with a lot of open ice for the nucks.

  • Chesterfield King

    crawford baby

  • Chesterfield King

    FUCK YOU ALBERTS

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    Ugh, seeing Shaw center Kaner hurts my eyes!

    • thepuckstopshere

      wtf, they already cashed in tonight!

      • dirkgrahamsmustache

        Shaw’s lack of skill is not worthy for Kane’s oodles of it.

        • http://www.facebook.com/hair.helmet Hair Helmet

          Funny. It was Shaw’s skillessness that made the play.

          • dirkgrahamsmustache

            Even a broken clock is right twice a day.

          • http://www.facebook.com/hair.helmet Hair Helmet

            Oh. You’re going for things that have no correlation I guess…um….a stitch in time is worth two birds in a bush.

        • ahnfire

          nope, but with Bolly out, we do what we must

          • dirkgrahamsmustache

            Pirri time?

          • DesertHawk

            He’d have to be at the game…. bitching about shaw on kane’s line, when bolly is hurt, after shaw got an assist on a kane goal… is kinda dumb.

          • dirkgrahamsmustache

            Dude, I meant for the next game. And as the performance of the PP has showed, short-term stats don’t always portend longer-term success.

          • DesertHawk

            I’m not saying they do, but the horse is pulp…

          • dirkgrahamsmustache

            When I made the comment about Shaw, I said it with reference to the disparity in their skill levels.

          • BodomSlayer

            I’m ok with this idea.

    • Woods

      While the puck is in the Nucks zone even… confused fanbase.

  • amontesawesome

    This Hawks PK is for real. I was a little concerned that they were relying too much on Crow’s unsustainably high PK sv%, but they also allow the fewest shots p/60 4v5. I imagine they’ll fall back to earth at some point because Crow likely won’t be insanely dominant all season, but the PK is legit, man.

    • dirkgrahamsmustache

      Coupling highly skilled forwards with a good combination of size and kill on D can work wonders!

  • Woods

    Why are Nucks fans chanting Crawford when the puck isn’t even in the Hawks zone? Not smart?

    • DesertHawk

      They’ve always done that…. I think they think it gets in his head.

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

        It always got to Bobby Lou, so they probably figure, that works, right?

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Stand tall, Crow.

  • amontesawesome

    Part of me gives Q credit for just saying “fuck it” in the face of Sharp’s not small sample size of SO futility. That level of stubornness is bizarrely admirable.

    So is Sharp effectively done doing the shootout?

    • BodomSlayer

      No lol.

    • DesertHawk

      We all asked that 3 years ago, Q doesn’t learn on this one.

  • BodomSlayer

    Seriously…no Hossa and a weak SO goal…ugh.

    • http://www.facebook.com/hair.helmet Hair Helmet

      Hossa doesnt do well in shootouts.

      • zacked

        Bettern’ Sharp is, dude. 32% for Hoss, 20% for Sharp career.

      • The Doctor

        Everybody and their mother does better than Sharp. No excuse for using him over Hossa.

  • Minorhawk

    Dear Coach Quenville,

    What the fuck are you thinking about???

  • Steveholt

    WHY DO YOU KEEP SENDING PATRICK SHARP OUT THERE FOR THE SO!!!!!

  • Bwana

    Where the fuck is Hossa, and why does Q continue to send out Sharp for shootouts?

    • BodomSlayer

      Q must be drunk or Sharp has pictures?

    • ahnfire

      honestly, Hossa isn’t that much better than Sharp.

      I’d try one of the others, like Saad or Frolik.

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    Definitely don’t agree with those S.O. choices. Why not give Saad, Frolik, or Kruger a try?

  • justforkicks

    and for pete’s sake crow – close your fucking 5 hole

    • BodomSlayer

      That goal really pissed me off…it was so fucking weak.

    • DesertHawk

      Yes… but he was 75% in the SO… that’s still pretty good he can make all the saves in the world and we’ll never win if no one gets past Lu.

      • justforkicks

        Yes and that’s super. But it seems like most of the goals that he lets in (and he is really don’t super this year, don’t get me wrong) are through the 5-hole. i don’t remember it being an issue last year so its like he fixed all his problems but developed a new one

        • DesertHawk

          Always something right? I’ll take this Crow over last years any day. I think Sharps 19% success rate in the SO and the fact that Capt, and Kane didn’t pull it off was a bigger issue, also Leddy?

          • justforkicks

            I’m not hating on him, I’m not blaming this loss on him. And obviously he’s playing so much better then last year. We didn’t score, that is why we lost. But most of the goals he let in have been through the 5-hole. Which is fixable, which is what I want him to do regardless of whether we win or lose. I’m not just talking about this game. I’m not picking on him.

          • DesertHawk

            It’s all good. I’ve been a Crow apologist since day 1 so I get a bit defensive. It’s always frustrated me how goalies bear the brunt of a loss so frequently.

          • justforkicks

            I love what he’s doing this year. So I get it. But it seems to be a flaw that i would love to see him fix. that’s it.

  • putmeinthemadhouse

    Sharp is 8 for 41. I dont know how else to tell Q to stop putting him out there. For christs sake.

  • thepuckstopshere

    good night all, nick leddy?????????????????

  • justforkicks

    i also don’t know why we didn’t see some kane-hossa on the 4×4

  • The Doctor

    Quenneville’s decision making in the shootout is seriously questionable. Okay, I can maybe see Sharp as the third shooter, seeing as he’s a big name on the team, but I’d still go with Saad, Hossa, or Stals over him. But hey, that I can forgive. But then he goes out there with Nick Leddy? Where’s the logic in that? Fucking terrible.

    • DesertHawk

      The only thing I can figure is that Sharp has way more attempts, so he doesn’t know how other shooters will do… but definition of Insanity and all.

  • Joe Banks

  • girlphoenix

    RE the shootout: we don’t have anyone good besides toews and sometimes kane! we might as well throw out randoms. in truth, the hawk with the best shootout record is seabs: 100%

    • DesertHawk

      That’s the thing for me… we know sharp isn’t good, lets give some other folks some chances instead of just reaffirming that sharp isn’t good at the SO every time.

  • putmeinthemadhouse

    Any word on bolland…

    • Z-man19

      not good is my guess

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

        Can take a SO loss. But oh no Bolland. Not happy.

      • ahnfire

        nope. but we’ll get the vague “lower body injury” from Q later tonight

        • Z-man19

          he’s going back to Chicago for MRI, I hope to hell I’m wrong

          • ahnfire

            wait, what? where’d you hear that?

          • Z-man19

            I’m speculating

          • ahnfire

            gahhh don’t do that to me.

          • Z-man19

            sorry, the Hammer is already packed right?

          • ahnfire

            no. I have a closet full of banhammers.

          • Accipiter

            From what I saw he got hacked on the inside if the calf pretty hard. Hoping it was something that just prevented him from finishing the game and isn’t too serious.

          • Z-man19

            I feel slightly better now, the replay I saw just showed him going down for no reason, that’s usually not a good thing

  • justforkicks

    also, time to change your damn SO strategy kaner. I’d rather you do the move you did in last seasons game against SCUm then see the slow down again.

    • ahnfire

      seriously. stop falling in love with your own moves, Kaner.

    • Eddie_The_Eagle50

      I agree on Kane in the SO. Also, why does Q keep throwing Sharp out there for the SO? It’s clear he’s not very good at all at it. Maybe somebody like Fro needs a look. Fro has great hands. I think he’d be pretty good in the Chinese checkers portion of the game.

      • wowwowweewoo

        Tonight would have been a great night to give Saad a shot. He had a great game, and it would have been a huge confidence boost goal or not for Q to throw him out. Although I would have changed the order: toews, saad, Kane.

  • Joe Banks

    WHAT A PAINFUL GAME TO WATCH…

    • Z-man19

      I have to disagree, it wasn’t the most exciting game to watch, but it’s not like we got dominated.

  • Joe Banks

    Pat Boyle must die… what an asshole

    • DesertHawk

      What’d he do?

    • DesertHawk

      For serious though? I don’t get to see the CSN stuff as Directv chops the feed about too seconds after the final whistle.

  • chidiver

    Night. The price of rally scotch.

  • ahnfire

    Q on Bolland: “Lower body” (surprise surprise) and “We’ll know more tomorrow.”

  • QCBlackhawk

    Speaking of Injuries, Any word on Carcillo?? I haven’t stayed updated on that situation

    • Accipiter

      He’s progressing.

      • QCBlackhawk

        Any estimates, or are you being a smartass? :p

        • Accipiter

          Both. Q wasn’t specific but he said Carello went from doing nothing at all, to being able to get a bit more active, now doing tougher workouts, but not skating yet. He is still on the 4 week timeline as per Q.

          • Z-man19

            Always a wealth of knowledge Javy, good work

    • Hack

      I’d care a lot more about Carcillo’s status if I weren’t certain that Q will inevitably shoehorn him into the top 6 rather than letting him be an effective fourth liner.

      • Accipiter

        This.

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    Ugh, so sick of “analysts” and reporters covering for the team and especially the coaching staff…

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    Powerplay 0-5…

  • dirtysandbag

    alrighty im new to writing on this board. im so frustrated from the game that i can’t slow down and scroll down to get to the end of the damn messaging…. so here’s what i think.

    … saad.

    not sad… but saad! from the beginning of the season he has impressed me! Granted anyone on a line with toews and hossa will look amazing, but alas, he looks good.. and damn impressive!!! even in the corner on his own…by himself. (a little bit redundant but seriously impressive)

    He looks fricken solid people – lets be honest.

    Let’s be real – even after ‘hope to god’ passes from oduya and hammer up the boards and to no-one… saad still makes the most of it.

    And he certainly caught the attention of most tonight while no one else was paying any attention. and then those beloved announcers caught up to him after drawing 2 penalties. cool. good announcing. what a player.

    But let’s move forward on to Q. i was thrilled to see shaw promoted when bollard went down. After seeing how much talent is on that line you’d expect Harlem Globetrotter shit…..(but we all know there’s no defense and its a seriously flawed line). But shaw took advantage as soon as he was given a chance and kaner put that bitch away! Finally kane put it where it belonged (not a pass – but the back of the net). Kane is waiting to go into beast-fuck-you-big-ol-titties-mode and for whatever reason doesn’t want to go there. I thought that was what he lived for…

    But the real question …… why does q insist on putting sharp out on the shootout?

    for that i have no answer. i can suggest that sharpie hit a couple posts the last few games and he’s likely a game or two away from something special. but at the end of the day you really need to go with the hot stick. and tonight that was saad. period.. he was fricken everywhere.
