  • Chesterfield King

    MOAR HAWKS GOALS

    MOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAARRRRRRR

    • KingTalkyTiki

      *POUNDS ON TABLE*

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Let’s win this one.

    Highlight save from Crow.
    Killed a minute and a half of 5 on 3

    Gotta wind this one.

    • Accipiter

      And Bollig hasn’t fought yet, we got that going for us too.

    • DesertHawk

      I’d like us to win it too :D

  • happyhuman

    Moar Hawks goals pleez

  • 2883

    MOAR HAWKS GOALS.

    • Accipiter

      This seems to be the general consensus.

      • 2883

        Said everyone ever

  • CozBullsFan

    Let’s go Hawks!

  • flavius

    Disqus hasn’t pissed me off all night, either…..maybe I’m getting used to it…..also, more Hawks goals

  • CornelisonsFlagPointer

    Where’s the guy with the tots, just in case…

    • flavius

      Somebody’s got tots?

      • Accipiter

        I’m sure HH is eating him some rally tots.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Let’s go.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Both Hawks goals scored when I had the sound off, so here goes.

    • Z-man19

      You turned it back on why?

      • Sparky_The_Barbarian

        Because Doc, Edzo, and Pierre are so insightful and entertaining.

        • Z-man19

          No seriously

        • DesertHawk

          I totally ag… wait, what?!

  • DesertHawk

    And I’m back.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Great centering pass. Too bad the nearest Hawk was at the concessions stand.

  • DesertHawk

    Why was Konopka on Keith?

    • 2883

      was wondering what Shaw was reacting to

      • DesertHawk

        Keith was on the ice… for some reason, and Konopka basically pinned him to the boards, it was all weird.

    • flavius

      Because Konopka…..answer to all Konopka questions, I think

      • DesertHawk

        Ahhh

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Sharpies dinger off the post in the first looming large.

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

      I forgot about that. I’m sad now.

    • 2883

      Wouldnt have resulted in 2 goals just 1

  • DesertHawk

    Bad offsides call.

  • DesertHawk

    Does Edzo read SCH/TCI?

    • Accipiter

      I’d be disappointed if he didn’t.

      • DesertHawk

        His idea has been espoused here may times.

  • Z-man19

    That a boy Saad

  • CornelisonsFlagPointer

    Here we go!

  • 2883

    Nice job by Saad to draw that peanlty

    • Accipiter

      Fuckin’ Stoner.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    LEt’s go PP

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    They’re clogging the middle. Need more movement.

    • flavius

      THIS…..good puck possession, but too stationary

    • CornelisonsFlagPointer

      This.

    • Joe Banks

      TWSS

  • flavius

    Fuckin’ Backstrom

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Stop shooting at the logo on his jersey

    • Joe Banks

      a curse upon you, Backstrom!

  • DesertHawk

    So what does Backstrom have right now? Someone refresh my memory, please.

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

      Well he’s got his own personal shutout going

      • KingTalkyTiki

        I cant help but read that to Depeche Mode’s Personal Jesus.

        • 2883

          Reach out and touch Toews?

          • Accipiter

            Saad to hear your prayers…

          • 2883

            a hossa who’s there.

          • Accipiter

            Lift up the receiver
            Q’ll make you believer

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      The Sword of Damocles Hanging Over His Head.

  • Joe Banks

    i’m getting sick of Sharps passing

  • flavius

    For the love of God, Pierre, you don’t have to say Eddie and Doc’s name every time you open your mouth! You are one of the most annoying men on the planet

    • Z-man19

      So much that

    • CornelisonsFlagPointer

      What do you expect, he’s pepsi AND irish

  • DesertHawk

    This commercial is everything that is wrong with ISPs in America.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Sharpie struggling tonight.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Damn close on that one. Pad save

  • amontesawesome

    Been only watching with one eye, so I didn’t realize how one sided shots had been since the 1st. Wow.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    It’s gonna take an ugly scrum or a one timer.

  • Accipiter

    Holy Shit ! The play actually stopped at 3:33 in the 3rd, Pat Foley’s head must have exploded.

    • DesertHawk

      Haha.

    • CornelisonsFlagPointer

      LOL!

  • DesertHawk

    Damn the Gopher Women’s team is bad ass.

    • DesertHawk

      Something for the Hawks to aspire to :D

    • girlphoenix

      not only are they 26-0-0 this season, they just won their 33rd straight game

      • DesertHawk

        Holy crap balls.

  • KingTalkyTiki

    If I had drank every time “State of Hockey” has been said during this broadcast, I’d be obliterated by now.

  • DesertHawk

    Fuck

  • flavius

    Bullshit penalty

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Aaaannnd A PK

  • Z-man19

    Are you kidding that’s shit

  • 2883

    bullshit

  • DesertHawk

    Speaking of embellishing.

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Or drunk

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    You know we’re gonna get one sooner or later.

  • DesertHawk

    Nice clear.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    I like our chances 4 on 4. More open ice.

  • flavius

    One point against a good team on the road….I’ll take it without complaint if I have to, but…..

  • DesertHawk

    And it’s extra hockey, we’ve been doin this a bit more than I’d like.

    • Accipiter

      I wonder if Backstrom remembers Kaner in the shootout.

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

        Just what I thought. He did that on national television, didn’t he?

        • DesertHawk

          Did what?

          • Z-man19

            Went black magic voodoo in the shoot out

      • 10thMountainFire

        We could post a video to remind him…

  • flavius

    i WANT ALL THE POINTS

    • Z-man19

      Glad you finished that

  • Minorhawk

    Points are good…

  • 10thMountainFire

    Marian Hossa… finish this.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Well, we already have ALMOST all the points.

  • flavius

    Clearly stated, Edzo

  • DesertHawk

    Damn Toews couldn’t corral the rebound.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Just a little late on that pass, Capn

  • Minorhawk

    Fuck Backstrom

  • DesertHawk

    atta boy Crow

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Gotta win this for Crow. Neither goal his fault.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Pierre, there’s been plenty of rebounds right into the slot, but we’ve not been able to capitalize.

  • 10thMountainFire

    Crow no rebound. I like this Crow.

  • Minorhawk

    Leddy wants another OT winner

    • 10thMountainFire

      Funny… so do I. Me and Leddy are like/this.

  • DesertHawk

    WTF Seabs?

  • DesertHawk

    WTF Kaner?!

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

    Y KANE
    Y U DO DIS

  • flavius

    Nice absorb there, Crow

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Blind pass? Bad Kane. (Unless it’s to Hossa)

  • 10thMountainFire

    That no-look back-hand pass is only going to work a small percentage of the time, Humpty. Jesus.

    • justforkicks

      i think eh forgot who he was on a line with – tazer or hossa woulda had it

      • 10thMountainFire

        Aye. That pass works with Hoss because when you throw it in the general direction of God, God scores every time.

        • Accipiter

          God called in sick today.
          /afi’d

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Trying to set up the back door one timer.

  • Minorhawk

    Get the rebounds he doesn’t give

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Let’s end this

  • DesertHawk

    OH!!!! that was so close!!

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Hossa, get your stick on that.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    I hate shoot outs.

    • DesertHawk

      Wild decided that was where it was going with about 20 sec left. Each time they got the puck they ragged instead of pressing.

    • KingTalkyTiki

      Words out of my mouth.

    • flavius

      I don’t hate……but certainly don’t love…..meh, world’s not perfect…..i had no problem with ties, myself

    • birdhead

      I like them in games I don’t care about. Then they’re fun. In Blackhawks games? Nah.

  • 10thMountainFire

    Home run-hitting contest… go.

  • 10thMountainFire

    Backstrom… remember this?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jCFLtBV8Mdg

    • Z-man19

      And there it is on tv

  • birdhead

    Blah if the first loss of the season is in the shootout imma be mad.

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Particularly in a game like this, where we dominated play for so long.

      • birdhead

        I’m just listening so it’s hard to tell, but yeah, that’s kind of how it sounds.

        • flavius

          I hear ya…..without that 5 on 3, we probably outshot them 2-1

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

    Come on Crow.

  • DesertHawk

    Not happy about the sharp decision

    • 10thMountainFire

      I would have gone 19-88-81

      Maybe 25…

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      He’s struggled tonight.

      • DesertHawk

        He’s never been good at the shoot out.

  • 10thMountainFire

    Fuck you, Minnesota.

  • Accipiter

    Granlund is good at this.

  • DesertHawk

    God Damnit

  • flavius

    That was a pretty sweet move

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Whew

  • flavius

    Money

  • 10thMountainFire

    Captain Serious!!!!

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Stand tall, Crow.

  • putmeinthemadhouse

    Toews is master of the five hole.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Elevate, Kaner

  • 10thMountainFire

    Looked confused on that last deke. Kane confused himself.

  • flavius

    Not sharpie, not sharpie…..he’s not good at this

  • 10thMountainFire

    For the record, I go with Hossa here.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Sharp hits the pipe for the second time tonight.

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

    Why Sharp?

  • putmeinthemadhouse

    What? THat didnt go in? It bounced downwards

  • Z-man19

    Damn, too much pipe

    • Accipiter

      TWSS.

  • flavius

    It’s a point on the road

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      True, still feels a bit empty since we carried the play most of the game.

  • The Doctor

    If I never see Sharp on the shootout again it’ll be far too soon. I don’t get why you sit Hossa in place of Sharp.

    • Joe Banks

      Or Saad

    • 10thMountainFire

      He beat him and pinged it. That’s not the end of the world. Sharp is alright… I would have gone with Hoss, Stals, or Saad as well but Sharpie just missed it.

      • The Doctor

        As would I. And that’s the problem. You go with the guys that give you the best chance to win. Sharp isn’t that guy.

        • 10thMountainFire

          I don’t know… he did beat him. Inches separated it. Win some, lose fewer.

          • DesertHawk

            Sharps SO percentage is pretty low if I recall.

          • 10thMountainFire

            It is… but tonight he beat Backstrom and clanked it. There’s no real shame in that.

          • DesertHawk

            Nope I’m more upset with Q, than I am with Sharp.

          • 10thMountainFire

            This.

      • DesertHawk

        Sharp isn’t great at the shootout though, it’s been a recurring thing.

        • 10thMountainFire

          Yeah… I definitely would have slotted Hossa there but I would suppose it will be 19-88-81 from here on.

          • DesertHawk

            On can hope, but we’ve been asking for Sharp to be off the SO squad for like 4 years. Still leading the league, all good things must come to an end.

      • Accipiter

        IIRC Hossa isn’t that great at the shootout either.

        • 10thMountainFire

          Do you sit him in favor of Shooter?

          • flavius

            Bolland is awesome…..so long as a defender is hooking and high sticking him all the way

          • justforkicks

            it shouldn’t be illegal to have one of our guys chase him down, lol

          • Accipiter

            I didn’t have a problem with Shooter getting in. Really a toss up. The next time someone else might get in there, or not.

          • 10thMountainFire

            I feel the same way.

  • Hi, I’m Bob LeDonne

    This is LITERALLY the worst day of my life.

    • 10thMountainFire

      You alright?

      • flavius

        Never has been…..he’s Bob LeDonne

      • Hi, I’m Bob LeDonne

        As alright as losing a regular season game to a bunch of NOBODIES and still retaining the best record in the league can get! Fire everyone!

        • 10thMountainFire

          I’m getting on that right….wait for it… now.

    • flavius

      You gotta hang one, Bob….Friday is gonna be better

      • flavius

        or hang on…..either way

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

    Ah well, at least the Hawks actually have a chance at winning a cup /this/ season.

  • KingTalkyTiki

    Why Sharp?!? Why?….Dear lord why have you forsaken me….

    • Joe Banks

      Why did they put Sharp out there?

      • flavius

        I don’t mind him getting some chances…..no obvious pick for the third shooter…..he’s just never been good at the shootout, so give Stals a try, give Hoss a try, bolland, etc…..toews and kane are automatic picks and should be, but not shooter

  • Joe Banks

    Sharp really sub par tonite.

  • 10thMountainFire

    Can’t get too crazy on this one… he beat him and just clanked it. Inches.

  • CornelisonsFlagPointer

    Don’t feel too bad, got that out of the way, and didn’t give the Canucks anything special to build on. Would’ve been nice to see them give Hossa or one of the youngsters a shot, though…

    • Joe Banks

      Sharp was drifting through the entire game… no look passes, mailing it in.

      • flavius

        I just didn’t see that, but I wasn’t focusing on him either….saw some nice puck work, skating, backchecking….meh, everybody has an off night now and then

  • justforkicks

    bah humbug, not the way i wanted this to go. That OT hossa miss is going to haunt me.
    TOI took a hit
    Keith at 28:10
    Seabs next highest with 26:42
    Forwards Toews with 21:45 and Kane with 20:01

    • putmeinthemadhouse

      well, full period of OT will do that

      • justforkicks

        yeah no shit, but hjammer could have been more on par at 23 like oduya which could have taken some stress of him

  • Waylon

    Backstrom won this one, but Crow deserved the W as well.

    • flavius

      Yep, he played well enough to win…..Backstrom made a couple mistakes, but Hoss and Shaw couldn’t capitalize

      • DesertHawk

        That’s my takeaway, we should’ve never let it go OT.

  • 10thMountainFire

    On the bright side… Crow continues to impress. That was our concern, right? That concern gets more and more muted each game. Crow looks much better minimizing rebounds, staying in position, and keeping us with a wall late in games.

    • justforkicks

      seriously, except for his 5 hole he’s looked very solid

      • 10thMountainFire

        He got beat there in the slam dunk contest as well. You’re absolutely correct on all points.

    • Z-man19

      And the improved PK, which Crow has a lot to do with
