    Evening all.

    I reserve the right to continue to bash the PANIC button in re Bolly. I’m embracing my inner meathead lately. Apologies in advance.

    P.S.: SCORE GOALS, BOYS.

    • 10thMountainFire

      Hack’s analysis on Shaw centering 88 and 10 has made me a believer in a short period of time. I have really warmed to the idea in all of about a minute. It could work.

      • Accipiter

        First Luongo, now this !!

        • 10thMountainFire

          Mentally, I’m all fucked up now. Seriously… I mentioned earlier that I had my buddies take my belt, shoelaces, and all sharp objects in arms’ reach.

          • http://twitter.com/326BureauChief 326 Bureau Chief

            Hope this is hyperbole. Hope you are TOTALLY ok.

        • Z-man19

          10th has become very pliable

  • mightymikeD

    whoo! it’s laaaate

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Yeah, I may have to record part of this one tonight.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    I see Rat is listed day to day (out tonight) That’s encouraging, unless we read that he isn’t practicing.

    • Z-man19

      Don’t think it’s that bad, they didn’t send him home

    • stacie7

      Q said wasn’t anything serious and he is staying with the team so that’s a good sign.

      • Z-man19

        Hello Trucker

        • stacie7

          Haven’t had anything to rant about lately. I’m pretty darn zen for the most part.

          • Z-man19

            This game may change all that

    • 10thMountainFire

      The pre-game mentioned the fact that he didn’t head back to Chicago… a good sign if one is to be had.

  • Joe Banks

    GO HAWKS GO!!!

  • Z-man19

    FUCK ALBERTA

    • http://twitter.com/326BureauChief 326 Bureau Chief

      I’ve had her. She’s boring in the sack. PASS.

  • 10thMountainFire

    No, seriously Calgary… give us Jerome fucking Iginla.

    • http://twitter.com/326BureauChief 326 Bureau Chief

      I sometimes wonder if he is overrated. Then the nurse brings me my medication, and I feel better.

      To think if he were on an actual hockey team.

      • 10thMountainFire

        Yep. He’s that good… I have a man-crush.

    • QCBlackhawk

      I have a man-crush on Iginla

      • DesertHawk

        I hate him… for no good reason. I always try to fight him in the NHL games.

      • 10thMountainFire

        I do as well. Dude is like a right-handed Keith Tkachuk… but better.

  • flavius

    Recognizing that plus/minus can be misleading, yada yada yada….just noticed and thought I’d share….Oduya leads the team at +8 and Toftbo is next at +6….not too shabby

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Look at Marlboro 72….

      • flavius

        I don’t like that one….I’m going to wait until it gets better to look again

        • 10thMountainFire

          Haha well answered.

  • Joe Banks

    Pat Boyle Sucks!

  • derlemke

    Gibt mir miene points und goals! Go Hawks!

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Yes, pointS plural tonight.

    • 10thMountainFire

      The French just surrendered to you.

  • Accipiter

    GO HAWKS GO !!!

  • CozBullsFan

    Let’s go Hawks!

  • Chesterfield King

    MOAR HAWKS GOALS

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      This. I’m usually preaching D, but the D is fine. We need more offense.

      • Chesterfield King

        Desperately.

  • justforkicks

    LETS GO BLACKHAWKS, WOO FUCKING HOO

  • CornelisonsFlagPointer

    Be a wall, Ray. The Emery Board.

    • 10thMountainFire

      I like it. Upboat.

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      He moves side to side just like a wall.

    • DesertHawk

      heh

    • DesertHawk

      Isn’t an Emery board a nail file?

  • DesertHawk

    I need to have my microwave card revoked…

    • 10thMountainFire

      Or at least microwaved.

      • DesertHawk

        I super burned up my leftover pizza twists… I’m now eating them as penance

        • 10thMountainFire

          I could never just throw away microwaved frozen awesomeness. You will eat it and you will enjoy it. Damn it.

          • DesertHawk

            Actually leftovers from pizza hut, I kept forgetting I’d put them in the microwave, so I reheated them like 4 times in the last 3 hours… that was apparently too much.

  • CornelisonsFlagPointer

    If Ronald McDonald had a hockey sweater…

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Ping

  • Steveholt

    I like this game more already, simply because the cameras at Vancouver seem like they’re about three miles away from the rink.

  • Z-man19

    More pipe for Sharp

    • BigHoss

      lets hope it aint a crack pipe…..

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Hit the inside of those pipes instead of the outside and we’re still undefeated. Woulda… Shoulda… Coulda….

  • Steveholt

    Since I called Kane’s goal last night I’m going to predict that Saad nets his first tonight

    • Chesterfield King

      I would be so fucking psyched

    • BigHoss

      it wouldnt be saad

      • 10thMountainFire

        I am reticent… but you have achieved an upboat.

        • BigHoss

          yay my first one on this site!

        • Steveholt

          Wow I just noticed that you could up and downvote things. Now I know, and I hear that’s half the battle

          • 10thMountainFire

            I haven’t seen many down-votes. Perhaps we can start a trend…

          • DesertHawk

            If you insist….

          • 10thMountainFire

            I did this to myself.

          • Steveholt

            I just downvoted myself, is that like masturbating?

          • DesertHawk

            But sadder, and less satisfying.

          • Steveholt

            So like using your own tears as lube.

          • DesertHawk

            Sure…. :backs away slowly:

          • DesertHawk

            The other half is blue and red lasers, or so I’m told.

          • QCBlackhawk
    • 10thMountainFire

      He has been flying. I love watching the dude play.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Pat: Leddy won the battle but could not get it out…

    Then he didn’t win the battle, did he?

  • Joe Banks

    We need to replace our targeting system!

    • BigHoss

      yeah have a picture of torres as the target

      • chidiver

        Maybe 10thmountainfire “lost” a couple of laser targeting systems before he left?

        • BigHoss

          maybe

        • 10thMountainFire

          I don’t know what you’re talking about. The supply SGT has no idea, either. Especially with his seat behind the glass in two weeks.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Good job, Razor

  • Z-man19

    Oh goody

  • http://twitter.com/326BureauChief 326 Bureau Chief

    Nice, Bollig. Nice. (yawn)

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Sigh, Bollig…

    • chidiver

      Douchetastic!

  • Chesterfield King

    HO BOY

  • Joe Banks

    Goon time.

  • flavius

    A Bollig fight? In the first period? For no apparent reason? Shocking development

    • mightymikeD

      I’m Shocked AND Stunned

  • justforkicks

    oh for fucking sake

  • chidiver

    Dancing with the stars?

  • 10thMountainFire

    I had no idea Hugh Jackman could skate OR fight.

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Skate: That’s a surprise
      Fight: Isn’t he an Aussie?

    • Accipiter

      He is the Wolverine !

    • CornelisonsFlagPointer

      Nice hair by cracky. Plus he looks like a rugby player. League rules.

      • mightymikeD

        BOOOOOOOOOOO

  • QCBlackhawk

    Useless Bollig fight, go.

  • DesertHawk

    That uppercut was from Bollig, Foley…

  • 10thMountainFire

    Bollig’s left hand is… wow.

    • mightymikeD

      shit?

      • BigHoss

        like his shooting ablility

      • 10thMountainFire

        He dinged em pretty good with that snap-upper-cut thing.

  • Steveholt

    Dude that was a vicious uppercut by Bollig

  • Chesterfield King

    WOW THIS IS SO EXCITING

  • happyhuman

    Oooh, Bollig got a good shot in there.

  • 10thMountainFire

    Has anyone wearing #17 been able to skate since Joe Murphy?

    • CornelisonsFlagPointer

      Mark Grace?

      • BigHoss

        dat morrison guy from last year was good

        • 10thMountainFire

          If by ‘good’, you mean ‘slow and inconsequential’, you are correct.

          • BigHoss

            i thought he contributed alot…. not

          • 10thMountainFire

            No less than Boynton.

          • BigHoss

            but more than kim johannson

          • QCBlackhawk

            Better than a corpse. Setting the bar real high, are we?

          • Guest

            Corpse? No one mentioned Johnsson.

          • QCBlackhawk

            Whoops. Wrong guy ^_~

          • DesertHawk

            I recall he contributed a good bit in the 3 games or so before his brain asploded.

          • DesertHawk

            Hmmm… he contributed a good bit in the 3 games before his brain asploded.

  • mightymikeD

    Bollig’s Highlight Reel=Lamest Fights Ever

    • http://twitter.com/LBlissettUSA Luther Blissett

      That might have been his most entertaining… decent scrap.

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

    A fight. This is so hockeyish.

  • 2883

    I have a Rally beer… Chester has his bagels I have my Stella…

    • Chesterfield King

      I’m eating a raisin bagel just because I’m hungry

      • Z-man19

        Finally

        • BigHoss

          Z-man!! long time no see hows your mom? :)

          • Z-man19

            Still 74

          • BigHoss

            thats good to hear! your the one i was making yo momma jokes with a while back right?

          • Z-man19

            Yes

          • BigHoss

            ok because that would be akward if it turned out if it was somebody else haha

  • http://twitter.com/326BureauChief 326 Bureau Chief

    Meanwhile, amongst PLAYERS ACTUALLY PLAYING HOCKEY, Razor looks sharp.

    (Thank you, thank you. Try the veal — it’s wunnerful.)

    • Joe Banks

      Are you here til Thursday?

      • http://twitter.com/326BureauChief 326 Bureau Chief

        No. Til Tuesday. (It’s a secret though. Hush. Keep it down, now — voices carry.)

        (You know, that joke (clue: “Aimee Mann”) probably flew over everybody’s head. Sorry. Will try harder next time.)

  • http://twitter.com/326BureauChief 326 Bureau Chief

    Damn you, Kippy.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Kaner….. Channeling his inner Hossa

    • BigHoss

      so inner god

      • 10thMountainFire

        Suddenly we’re all Buddhists.

    • Steveholt

      His inner “I’m Marian Hossa and you’re not”?

  • Joe Banks

    Jesus Kane, WTF?

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Toews, trying to pass through three guys.

  • QCBlackhawk

    Btw, anyone that passes through the Quad Cities on their way west on I-80 Stop at the Blue Cat Brew Pub. They make a Blackstrap Molasses Stout that gives me a chubby.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Razor looking good makes me happy.
    Razor having to look good so early makes me sad,

  • Chesterfield King

    I want Giordano on the Hawks purely because of the pizza angle

  • justforkicks

    well that was ugly

  • 2883

    Silver lining if there is one on Bolland being out is seeing Kruger get on our checking line

  • QCBlackhawk

    We’re booing icing now? Wat.

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

      I was booo-urnsing icing.

    • DesertHawk

      BOOO ALL THE THINGS!!!!

      • chidiver

        We own ALL the Boos!

        • BigHoss

          boo this comment

          • Accipiter

            Done.

          • BigHoss

            thank you

          • DesertHawk

            Badger! :pours one out:

          • 10thMountainFire

            Upboat.

          • chidiver

            Not sure why you wanted this…but OK

          • BigHoss

            deserthawk said boo all things so i wanted my comment to be booed

          • DesertHawk

            Good man!

          • BigHoss

            i listen well, shit i down voted my own comment

    • 10thMountainFire

      What else is there to boo in Calgary?

      • Z-man19

        Cows?

      • chidiver

        Oil….cows….that’s all I can think of.

        • BigHoss

          flames

          • chidiver

            Flaming oil soaked cows?

          • BigHoss

            oh my!

  • 10thMountainFire

    So, yeah… Barry Melrose calling Kaner a Hart Trophy finalist… not so crazy.

  • DesertHawk

    Sharp is just in a funk right now…

    • Chesterfield King

      and yet, he’s hitting posts left and right.

      • Sparky_The_Barbarian

        and top

      • flavius

        It’s a left right post funk funk

      • Accipiter

        But he won’t play Centre.

        • 10thMountainFire

          I have a belly full of white dog crap in me, and now you lay this shit on me?

          • Accipiter

            This wedding is horse shit!

          • 10thMountainFire

            I didn’t want salmon! I said it four times!

          • Accipiter

            Hold on. We’re not going on the boat, Derek’s selling the house, we have to go to therapy?

            WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED?

          • 10thMountainFire

            He sure can wear the shit out of that pirate hat.

      • DesertHawk

        He’s had a few posts, but I’ve noticed a lot of derpy stuff pre-shot with the puck.

        • Chesterfield King

          Oh definitely. Sharpie is still a threat, even with his recent questionable decision making

    • BigHoss

      he should stop listening to the red hot chili peppers

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Good shift, but it needs more shots. Le’s just start throwing it at the net every chance we get.

  • Joe Banks

    Iginla is hackin and whackin… (Konroyd)

    • QCBlackhawk

      Keep hack… whack… Choppin’ that meat.

  • justforkicks

    well another great shot at least.

  • Steveholt

    In case anyone is wondering, my outfit consists of my hawks championship shirt, a hawks hoodie, the WC jersey I got at the WC, sweatpants, and my freudian slippers. To me that seems like a recipe for awesome.

    • 10thMountainFire

      What is the slippers’ record?

      • Steveholt

        2-0

        • 10thMountainFire

          Ok, we’ll keep em.

    • Chesterfield King

      I’m wearing a long sleeve shirt and a cardigan

      • 10thMountainFire

        You must be outside.

        • Steveholt

          No I’m just cheap.

        • Chesterfield King

          I was just walking through the snow

          • 10thMountainFire

            If you start to heat up, you may feel the need to take off a layer; however, if we’re ahead, I’m sorry to say you must bear the heat. Drink water.

          • Chesterfield King

            My bagel is good tho

          • 10thMountainFire

            Win.

          • Steveholt

            There is water in beer

          • 10thMountainFire

            I am very well hydrated this evening.

          • 2883

            In fact Coors Light is water…

      • Accipiter

        Mr. Dressup ?

        • Chesterfield King

          I’m dapper like a motherfucker

    • 10thMountainFire

      Wait a minute… why are you wearing pants?

      • chidiver

        Yeah, I thought uniform of the day was pantsless?

        • DesertHawk

          So long as it’s not blues.

        • Steveholt

          Oh damn I didn’t get that memo, it’s too cold in my house for no pants

  • 2883

    Razor’s looking sharp

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Good thing. He’s had to.

      • 2883

        I was talking about the one in my hand as a result of looking awful against the Flames.

        • 2883

          For the record I’m not this emo, I was just trying to make a funny… fail

          • DesertHawk

            I was gonna advise you to go down the road…. wasn’t sure how it’d go over.

          • 2883

            Well that’d just be smart, never cross the street…

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Let’s go play in front of Kipper for a while.

  • Joe Banks

    At least our passesto Calgary are superb.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Is this a penalty kill? WTF Hawks.

  • DesertHawk

    I hate Konroyd…

    • BigHoss

      he says against weirdly

      • DesertHawk

        He’s also a big jinxy-jinx pants… and he can go DIAF.

        • BigHoss

          DIAF?

          • DesertHawk

            Die in a fire.

          • BigHoss

            ohhh is see

      • Joe Banks

        I’m ooot with that.

  • http://twitter.com/LBlissettUSA Luther Blissett

    Well if the next 50 are anything like the first 10 minutes, this is gonna be NHL lockout hockey at it’s best. Pucks fired aimlessly across ice… brutal turnovers…

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

    Flames have a nice PP going…

  • http://twitter.com/LBlissettUSA Luther Blissett

    LOL the Hawks just had 10 guys on the ice.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Is this going to be another night when they wait until 11:00 in the third to start playing hockey?

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

      All the rage these days.

    • Z-man19

      Calgary gets a goal or 2 and they may not show at all

  • http://twitter.com/326BureauChief 326 Bureau Chief

    What makes me think that this Simmonds guy from the Harris commercial is gonna get dopeslapped by that H.R. employee?

    Because he look and acts like a douche, that’s why.

    LESS BAD COMMERCIALS.

  • DesertHawk

    In case anyone wondered, my failure at microwaving.. is like pepperoni flavored hard tack…. so edible…. ish

    • 10thMountainFire

      Red pepper, brother. Fixes everything.

      • DesertHawk

        Not a fan actually… I actually kinda like the taste of carbon though, so burned doesn’t really bother me. :might be in the minority:

        • 10thMountainFire

          I guess it’s better than a first strike MRE.

          • DesertHawk

            first strike? At least MREs are better than C-Rations.

          • chidiver

            Truth!

          • http://twitter.com/LBlissettUSA Luther Blissett

            Mayor Rahm Emanuel?

          • 10thMountainFire

            No, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.

          • DesertHawk

            WHY U NO ANSWER QUESTION!?

          • 10thMountainFire

            First strikes are like 2-day MREs. Mostly tuna and chicken-style… tuna. Shitty.

          • DesertHawk

            Ah… yeah Air Force Air Crew…. never experienced those.

          • 10thMountainFire

            They… suck. Awful. Although while at SFAS I had the honor of eating a Buffalo Chicken MRE… new flavor. My God, it was pure ‘Merica; when I opened it up, it was like bald eagles were singing the Star Spangled Banner on Fox News on Independence Day.

          • DesertHawk

            Haha, regular MREs weren’t bad, some were terrible. At least there wasn’t any slimy ham. :shudders:

          • 10thMountainFire

            I ate the veggie burger cold and I loved it. These kids today…

          • DesertHawk

            Stew was pretty good as were most of the pastas…. the veggie ones were kinda sketch.

          • 10thMountainFire

            No one… absolutely NO ONE… ever uttered the words ‘sure, I’ll take your Veggie Omelet.’

          • DesertHawk

            :wretches:

          • 10thMountainFire

            You could add Texas Pete’s, red pepper, and the sweat of Hossa and it wouldn’t taste any better.

          • DesertHawk

            Hahaha, I don’t imagine there are a lot of Vegetarians running around on the front lines anyway. I always thought it was weird that that was an option…. was probably a congressional mandate.

          • 10thMountainFire

            It was a mandate by fucking al-Qaeda.

          • DesertHawk

            Hah. I’ve only actually had MREs like 4 times though, I imagine they’d be less appealing if I had to eat them on the regular.

          • chidiver

            No athiests or vegetarians in foxholes?

          • DesertHawk

            I don’t see how you could do the vegetarian thing, even with access to a chow hall the whole time… the food choices were just so limited.

    Serious question: Have the Hawks completed a forward pass tonight?

  • Chesterfield King

    There should be a hockey player named Gino’s East, that would be the shit

  • Z-man19

    Sharp is not mentally there

    • BigHoss

      just call him kim joahnsson

      • BigHoss

        or however the hell you spell it

    • 10thMountainFire

      Neither am I but I don’t cash Sharpie’s pay check.

      And I certainly don’t look as good as he does. Fuck. More beer now.

      • DesertHawk

        You did get to stand right next to Cornelison during the Anthem though.

        • 10thMountainFire

          I got awesome by osmosis when I shook his hand. All five times I shook his hand.

          • chidiver

            Its the magic ring he wears

          • 10thMountainFire

            I tried not to look directly at it but I am a failure. I was staring. And yes, he is a big man. Or I am short. Fuck. More beer.

          • chidiver

            Wait…beer makes one taller? Why am I not 10 feet tall?

          • 10thMountainFire

            It makes one ‘less short’.

          • DesertHawk

            In ones own head… unless they have too much, then it makes them more “short”

          • 10thMountainFire

            I have seen many men drink, feel less short, and approach women they should not have approached.

          • DesertHawk

            The second half was in reference to a problem frequently attributed to whiskey…

          • 10thMountainFire

            Do not blame whiskey for this! You apologize to whiskey right now!

          • DesertHawk

            Whiskey and I have no beef, we’ve never even met.

          • 10thMountainFire

            You’d like him. Good guy.

          • chidiver

            I have seen many men drink, feel less short, and approach MEN they should not have approached (and then expect me to back their stupid ass up)

      • BigHoss

        yeah now its clown shoes again how saad

  • flavius

    Remember how well you played those first five or six games? Please do that again, ok?

    • amontesawesome

      I know I’m probably in the minority, but I think the Hawks actually have played better the last few games than the first few.

      Tonight excluded, so far. They’ve been pretty bad so far. But in the past few games. Better shot differential, CORSI, etc. They just had a crazy high sh% those first few games that wasn’t going to stay that high, just like their low sh% won’t stay as low as it’s been.

      profit?

      • DesertHawk

        Wrong kind of list!!! there were no numbers, Gah!

      • Steveholt

        List of things I wasn’t expecting to hear

  • Steveholt

    The puck has been replaced by a hand grenade, at least that’s what the hawks think seeing as how they are so willing to give it away.

  • putmeinthemadhouse

    Whatever the hell the hawks are farting all over the ice is, it sure isnt hockey. they look like ass.

      Speaking of Millionaires, the weird V on Vancouver’s jersey, is an homage to them or something.

          Seems like a good time to bust this one back out from when they beat us first round.

          Kaner picking up unattractive Vancouverites in his Limo after the game?

          • BigHoss

            that’s what im thinking

          • Joe Banks

            As opposed to attractive Vancouverites?

      Ugh. He’s just the worst. AND a goddamn joke thief.

      • 10thMountainFire

        Joe Rogan handled him… seemed similar to the Denis Leary/Bill Hicks thing.

        • 10thMountainFire

          Wow, Bill Hicks reference on The Committed Indian thread.

          • QCBlackhawk

            Fuck yeah, Bill Hicks.

          • 10thMountainFire

            He is… in no exaggeration… a fucking God.

            didn’t he die? gods don’t die, do they?

            He’d probably object to you saying that.

          • 10thMountainFire

  • putmeinthemadhouse

    oh my god. you aren’t going to believe this. I just switched over to the phoenix/dallas game in time to catch a montage/homage to raffi torress commemorating his return. that is fucking disgusting.

    • BigHoss

      Fuck Raffi Torres

      • thepuckstopshere

        a hole should be dug for him in the desert

    • justforkicks

      not fucking surprising, its a team who thought it was an ok play and a fanbase who wanted to “free torres”. The team also asked the league to shorten his penalty because it was a shortened season didn’t they?

      • Eddie_The_Eagle50

        They also employ an Oscar worthy goalie as well.

        • justforkicks

          fucking smith

      • putmeinthemadhouse

        but wtf, its not like hes a star player or anything, it was literally a minute and a half at least of commercial time used to spotlight him including shots fo him tying his skates and everything. what the fuck? why? its just in poor taste all around considering his standings with just about everyone in the league. lose a lot of respect for the organization for that.

        • justforkicks

          yeah so damn ridiculous, and really fucking gross. and i agree 100%

        • Z-man19

          An organization owned by the league no less

      • DesertHawk

        New fans are mostly meatheads… he appeals to those kinda idiots. Teams need time to get non meathead fans. The actual old timey ‘Yotes fans I talked to all were disgusted by everything surrounding that whole situation.

        • Eddie_The_Eagle50

          I think anyone with half a hockey brain or make that half a brain period knows there is no room for that shit in the game.

        • justforkicks

          which is definitely good. it just always got me – the people crying about smith and then saying it was just a hockey play on hossa. i mean, really?? so yeah get what you’re saying, just bitter, and the team putting a montage to him just annoys me further

    • 10thMountainFire
