  • mightymikeD

    what’s that turd doing on the ice?

    • Joe Banks

      It got kicked out of the punch bowl?

  • Z-man19

    Over/under on dumb Bollig fight?

  • 2883

    just think, for next years’ home opener they’re going to have to do it in French as well..

  • Chesterfield King (Chelsdag)

    Excited for Saad tonight

  • 2883

    Lets do this. No mercy

    • mightymikeD

      feeling the hate coming back… ahhhh

      • Z-man19

        Feels good doesn’t it?

        • mightymikeD

          yup.

      • ahnfire

        coming back? where’d it go?

    • mightymikeD

      heh! like it

  • pompoon

    Man I can’t believe how much I missed hearing John and Troy

  • Gozer the Traveler

    may i say, that this is fucking bullshit? i paid actual money, directly to the NHL, in order to legally watch games online. i do not have cable, i have the internet. i am willing to pay to watch games legally. however, the NHL insists on blacking out games to which i have no access, which in turn forces me to watch ILLEGAL streams of games. fuck you, NHL, fuck you in your stupid fucking face. /rant

    go hawks.

    • ahnfire

      that sucks :(

    • flavius

      yeah….they should have fixed that by now

    • Gozer the Traveler

      honestly, i would be more than willing to buy a hawks-only subscription to the NHL. let me pay the blackhawks directly; think of it as a digital season ticket. let me watch all the hawks games online, on whatever devices i want, for an up-front price (or even better! we can do it on a cost-per-game basis!). i would even be willing to pay a little more at the end of the year if the hawks make the playoffs, which would allow me to watch all the playoff games. this is the future, right? i want a robot to drive my car when i drink too much at the bar, and i want to watch the hawks online legally.

  • CozBullsFan

    Evening everyone! Go Hawks!

    • Z-man19

      Wait, is that same woman sitting behind the bench?

  • ahnfire

    Time to ruin another banner raising, Hawks!

    • pompoon

      I’d love for the Hawks to just run through the Pacific division, ruining banner ceremonies as they go.

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

    • ahnfire

      • BigCSouthside

        dont have that either

        • ahnfire

          it’s a free preview for the month of january…you sure?

          • BigCSouthside

            not even available in my area

          • ahnfire

            :( I’m so sorry m’dear. thefirstrow in the eu might have the game…

          • 2883

            if you don’t have a cable station that offers CI you can’t get CI

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    A turnaround from the opening of yesterday’s game, most of the early shifts are in our end.

  • Joe Banks

    Keith’s passing not very accurate

  • capra

    “Bickell-Shaw-Stalberg, that’s kind of a sloppy line.” — said my wife

    • 2883

      haha She’s not wrong.

  • ahnfire

    ugh I wish I didn’t have the NBC announcers. I miss Pat & Edzo.

  • ahnfire

    FUCK

  • CR64

    FUCK!!!!!!

  • 2883

    sigh, fuck…

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Ouch. TO, and a non save

  • pierzynskirules

    WTF!

  • Z-man19

    Not a good start

  • Joe Banks

    Gah

  • Gozer the Traveler

    fuck

  • flavius

    Well, that was ugly

  • pompoon

    ugh barf

  • derlemke

    ah shucks

  • Chesterfield King (Chelsdag)

    FUCKING FANTASTIC

  • Hawkeytalk

    Um seabs no.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Bad biscuit, no dog.

  • CozBullsFan

    fuck

  • amontesawesome

    This is reactionary, but I’m not convinced Ray Emery is a NHL caliber goalie at this point in his career.

    • Megalosaurus

      You are not alone in that assessment.

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      You could be right, but it’s hard to judge, given that his own D man gave the puck to a shooter fifteen feet out.

    • Mit

      I agree. He was below average at best last year, and a lot of nights he was fucking awful

  • ahnfire

    I FUCKING HATE THAT HOWL.

    • 2883

      It’s why the Yotes bother me so much

    • Z-man19

      You seem to have some pent up hate tonight, that’s good

  • flavius

    good lord hoss is a beast

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Nice deflection, Saad

  • ahnfire

    c’mon PP!! NO CLOWNSHOES

  • Z-man19

    CLOWNSHOES

    • Joe Banks

      Have faith…

      • Z-man19

        I posted that yesterday and we scored

  • pierzynskirules

    shoes

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Kaner draws a penalty. Great move.

  • Chesterfield King (Chelsdag)

    atta babe kaner

  • pierzynskirules

    like xfinity is so perfect.

  • justforkicks

    jfc i hate the coyotes

    • 2883

      you aren’t alone. They showed Raffi Torres earlier. My mom’s pretty impressed withthe words that came out of my mouth after

      • justforkicks

        yeah that was pretty gross

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Why no PS? Kaner was in front.

    • CR64

      Wasn’t a clear path.

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    Will Q give Saad a shot on the PP?

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Apparently so.

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    Let’s count how many backdoor passes they try…

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      It’s a different variation on the back door, but it depends on a one timer.

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

    Slow computer, frustrating game. Have to resist my urges, now.

  • Hawkeytalk

    Like the energy so far, if not the score

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    The entries have been smoother. Same result though.

    • Gozer the Traveler

      just about to say the same

  • Joe Banks

    passing is very important…

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Saad gets PP time.

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    Leddy looking solid in his own end this year.

  • Gozer the Traveler

    bollig playing a decent 4th line role so far, i’m not as annoyed about him being on the ice as i could be

    • 2883

      Its a spot that should go to someone like Mayers. Who are our scratches tonight? Carcillo Mayers and Brookbank?

      • ahnfire

        yup.

    • dirkgrahamsmustache

      Except for anytime he gets the puck…

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    “Bollig – better than John Scott, but still useless”

  • Hawkeytalk

    I just hope the boys end the frustration streak against these mofos. This is starting to remind me of last spring

  • CR64

    Tony O embarrassing himself again I see….. nothing changes

    • Hawkeytalk

      Same embarrassment. Ick.

  • QCBlackhawk

    Gah, trying to get around game center’s blackout restrictions, can’t find a proxy server for it.

    • kcrvpn

      Isn’t NBCSPORTS.COM streaming it?

      • QCBlackhawk

        If so, I can’t find it. When I click on live games it redirects me to game center where I’m getting blacked out

        • kcrvpn

          Nuts. Sorry; I don’t know any proxy servers

      • ahnfire

        that was just yesterday.

        • QCBlackhawk

          Hi Ahn! Long time no see etc. :p

          • ahnfire

            HI! Uhm…new name?

            Sorry I don’t recognize :(

          • QCBlackhawk

            Oh shit, sorry. Yeah. Got tired of typing ForAllYouYoungHockeyMoms

          • ahnfire

            ohhhhhh hi!! *waves*

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Playing good hockey, and losing. They capitalized on our miscue, we didn’t on theirs.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    More clownshoes.

  • ahnfire

    fuck you doan, that was a BLATANT high stick.

  • Gozer the Traveler

    uh-oh, cue yakkity sax

    WTF, the back door worked.

    • Z-man19

  • Gozer the Traveler

    that’s why you don’t highstick bolland.

    First Rat “Yeah whatever” celebration of the season

  • Hawkeytalk

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    I do like Rat’s goal celebration. Yeah? I’ve done it before.

    • http://www.facebook.com/coachgottlieb Sheldon Gottlieb

      Backdoor Bolland!!!

  • BigCSouthside

    So was that as pretty as it sounded on GN?

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Yes.

    • dirkgrahamsmustache

      Sure was – Kaner slipped it right under the d-man’s stick!

    • Z-man19

      Pure magic

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    I’m going to miss Bolly next year…

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Could be why we haven’t signed a 2C

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    PP now 2/6 on the year?

  • derlemke

    Holy hit Hjammer!

  • Gozer the Traveler

    damn hjammer big hit

    • KingTalkyTiki

      ..and to the ‘yote fans who put their hands in the air, that’s what a legal hit looks like. Know you don’t see them often.

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    I usually don’t hesitate to criticize Hammer, but he does look like his 09-10 self so far.

  • Gozer the Traveler

    again, hjammer takes a hit to make a pass

  • ahnfire

    I REALLY WANT FROGGER TO SCORE.

    • pompoon

      I want to see him rewarded for repeatedly throwing his tiny body into danger

      • ahnfire

        pretty much. also, I kinda love him & want him to do well.

  • Z-man19

    Oh Fro

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    We have the MO now, but it only lasts til the next red light.

    • Joe Banks

      you had to say it…

  • Chesterfield King (Chelsdag)

    kruger looking really really good

    • dirkgrahamsmustache

      Lord knows he has enough support from the organization!

      • Chesterfield King (Chelsdag)

        if he keeps this up he’ll more than justify it

        • dirkgrahamsmustache

          Definitely, and I hope he does; I’m a fan!

  • 2883

    that entire 4th line is lookign pretty solid

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    If Stalls could pass like he skates…

    • http://www.facebook.com/coachgottlieb Sheldon Gottlieb

      He can’t think that fast!!

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    Solid play by Roszy there.

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    Great play by Leddy there – that’s what he needs to do to overcome his size disadvantage.

  • Gozer the Traveler

    is there a way to just get the new comments to auto-load without me having to click the “show new comment” bar every time?

    • Z-man19

      No

    • 2883

      Not that I’vefound

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Sometimes the bar freezes for me so I just hit F5

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Nice save, Razor

  • Toews still makes funny faces!

            No, Hossa Channeling through Kane!

    • ahnfire

      Kaner seems intent on retiring the clown shoes.

      • Toews still makes funny faces!

        I’m okay with that!

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

    Did we learn nothing in the playoffs? Phopho is only in this because of the d-zone keystone kopery.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Just so you know, the Yotes scored when I was on SCH, the Hawks scored while I was on CI.

  • mightymikeD

    the world’s gone topsy-turvy.. PP goal, Hjammer hitting people, Bollig hasn’t done anything stoopid yet..

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      And a Kieth TO. Sigh.

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

        I’ve a feeling #20 is going to get some love.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    is it me or did the Hawks really dominate after the Yotes early goal?

    • Gozer the Traveler

      not just you

    • pompoon

      I’m only listening to the game, but it sounds like they got better as time passed.

    • Toews still makes funny faces!

      Hawks and Dominate in same sentence = instant hard-on for TMFF!!!!

      • Chesterfield King (Chelsdag)

    • Toews still makes funny faces!

      WTF!!!Toews lost a fucking Faceoff, Fire his ass!!!!!

    • QCBlackhawk

      Bolly at 50%. Seems legit.

    • CozBullsFan

      Bolland at 50%. I like that!

    • Gozer the Traveler

      lol @ bollig taking a draw

      • Chesterfield King (Chelsdag)

        Literally about to wonder why the fuck he took one

        • Z-man19

          Pretty sure he took one yesterday too

          • Chesterfield King (Chelsdag)

            Bollig hat trick: One hit, one dumb penalty, one face off loss

          • Z-man19

            Trade a goal for the dumb penalty and I like it

          • IndianHeadCrest

            Throw in a meaningless fight and he’s had a full season

          • Chesterfield King (Chelsdag)

            Good, then we can put someone else of worth on the roster

        • dirkgrahamsmustache

          He took it because Kruger got kicked from that F/O.

          • Chesterfield King (Chelsdag)

            Isn’t Frolik on that wing, though?

          • dirkgrahamsmustache

            He was, which was why I came away so surprised that Bollig took the draw.

    • pierzynskirules

      bad shaw

      Thanks Ahn, you always were my fav
