• Sparky_The_Barbarian

    2nd period scotch in hand.

    • Flavius

      Make it a double….had a bad feeling about this game all day.

      • Sparky_The_Barbarian

        I’ve had a bad feeling about the last five games. Side effect of growing up a Cubs fan.

    • Hi, I’m Bob LeDonne

      Tis?

  • Hi, I’m Bob LeDonne

    Sorry I’m late. Gobots Anonymous meeting went long.

  • CozBullsFan

    Let’s go Hawks!

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Pat: You’re not just changing a habit, you’re changing a mind set.

    Isn’t that the definition of a habit?

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Okay, Hawks, give a shit. Let’s go.

  • JRF

    I love Blackhawks!

  • Hi, I’m Bob LeDonne

    Drinking a home blend of half weller 12 half old weller antique. Good.

    • Joe Banks

      I cried when old Weller died.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Nice flurry.

  • Joe Banks

    GO HAWKS GO!!

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Is it a sparse room tonight or is Disquss just ignoring everyone?

    • Joe Banks

      The latter

    • Z-man19

      I think it pissed everyone off

  • Joe Banks

    Nice pass, Rozie!

  • Flavius

    NIW eht rof auqsiD…gniht sdrawkcab gnipyt eht woN

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      I’ll have one of whatever you’re drinking.

      • Joe Banks

        I think he finished the bottle…

    • Joe Banks

      Yeah!

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Disquss posting backwards? I’ve had that happen and had to F5

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Great move, Cap’n Gotta get that on net.

  • Z-man19

    Hey it’s actually working now, nice

  • Joe Banks

    Come to Chicago, enjoy our active sticks!

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Did Pat just say “Andy Carcillo?”

  • Z-man19

    I approve of this Carillo

    • 10thMountainFire

      I also approve. The Bomb is the bomb tonight.

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

        Even I have to admit he’s better than Bollig.

  • Flavius

    8 minutes, 2nd period, Oilers 0 SOG

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Now if we can just light the lamp.

      I see you are no longer forward impaired.

      • Flavius

        That F5 button is quite a button

  • DesertHawk

    Why’d that guy duck on Carcillo’s hit? Seems like a good way to get your bell rung.

    • JRF

      Well it worked, it looked like Carcillo got a lot more glass than player there. I LOL’d at the replay.

      • Z-man19

        That’s a bullshit move

  • Z-man19

    God damn you rolling puck

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    How many times in the last five games has Hossa had a wide open net and not been able to get a clean pass?

    • Flavius

      Or lost time and space trying to settle the puck

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Kaner, stop that spin o rama shit. Even Savard didn’t do it that often.

    • DesertHawk

      Yeah but Chara just scored doing one… Kaner’s claim to fame is being threatened.

  • Flavius

    This puck possession is pretty damned impressive

    • Z-man19

      Need a goal and Ray is probably napping

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

    Please puck, do go in?

    • DesertHawk

      Behind Khabibulin, specifically

    • Joe Banks

      The Bulin wall is starting to crack…

  • 10thMountainFire

    Travis Bickell is having himself quite a couple of games.

    • Flavius

      Lord Byron

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

      One of these days he’s gonna get himself organizized

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Boy, Hossa just can’t get a clean puck. And it’s PK time.

  • Flavius

    Would it be jinxy to call a Frogger Shortie?

    • 10thMountainFire

      Yes, but it’s too late now.

      • Flavius

        I haven’t called anything…just seeking counsel

        • 10thMountainFire

          I shall provide counsel: yes, it would be jinxy. As you were… continue.

          • Flavius

            FUCK

          • 10thMountainFire

            I’m just staring you down right now.

          • Flavius

            Well, I’m not calling it again….or am I?

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

            All your fault

  • 10thMountainFire

    You know the status of your special teams are fucked up when you’re not worried on a PK and worried to hell on a PP.

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Well, half fucked up.

      • 10thMountainFire

        Upside down. And Down on the Upside.

  • Z-man19

    Why can’t the hawks do that?

    • 10thMountainFire

      Because we don’t have a Yakupov.

      Actually, I just wanted to type ‘Yakupov’.

      • Z-man19

        Duncs just missed that pass

        • 10thMountainFire

          I had been a bit rough on Keith in the past few games where I thought he was making dumb passes and giving the puck up a bit… but the truth is that I was blinded. I think Keith still has a tendency to place the largesse of the burden on his own shoulders… and missing Seabs didn’t help for a game.

  • Joe Banks

    Fuuuuuck

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Puck not bouncing our way tonight. And STOOPID PENALTIES>

  • CozBullsFan

    fuck

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

    They heard my plea but that’s NOT what I fucking meant.
    Damn universe

    • Joe Banks

      Be more specific.

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

        I’m sorry. I really thought it was implied. Implications burn me, I should stop those.

  • Yardsale

    Oilers. Pesky.

  • Flavius

    Are you fucking serious?

    • Z-man19

      These calls are shit

    • 10thMountainFire

      Yes, his name is Serious.

  • 10thMountainFire

    Fuck you penalties! Fucking stop it!

  • 2883

    Evening…. what a crappy game so far

  • Red Black and Copper

    Bullshit….

  • zacked

    Not surprising they scored on the PP. It’s the only thing they’re good at.

  • Joe Banks

    Tazer Nooooooooooooooooo!

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    STOOPID PENALTIES

    I has scripted us losing this one tonight, and don’t care if we get our shit together before St Louis.

    That said, Let’s go Hawks.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Again, a pass tipped on the way to Panda

  • Z-man19

    Oduya!!!

  • Flavius

    Holy Shit, Oduya….3-1

    • Country_Bumpkin

      Great Goddamn play.

  • 10thMountainFire

    Johnny Two-Points!

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Oduya!

  • CozBullsFan

    ODUYA!

  • Flavius

    How much do I like #27? A lot….that’s how much.

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

    Hawks can do it? Hawks can do it.
    Sure they can do it.

  • Country_Bumpkin

    I know the Hawks will eventually lose in reg, but I’d rather not lose to a .500 team. That being said, Go Hawks!

  • Joe Banks

    Wow… Toews having a bad hair day.

  • DesertHawk

    That’s gotta be a good omen right?

    • Flavius

      Yeah, sure, whatever

      • 10thMountainFire

        Hey! You watch it! You’re on thin ice, buddy.

        • Flavius

          Third period thread is broke….won’t go

  • DesertHawk

    That’s the best shoot the puck I’ve ever seen.

    • 10thMountainFire

      I was thinking the same thing.

  • 10thMountainFire

    Anyone else having difficulty with the third period thread?

  • DesertHawk

    Third Period thread… just kidding :(

  • putmeinthemadhouse

    that shoot the puck was an omen. pucks goin in the net, hawks favor.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Throw lots of pucks at Khabi, and clear the damned puck every time.

    • Flavius

      You sound like Smilin’ Jamie Kompon!

      • Sparky_The_Barbarian

        Can’t be right, then.

  • Flavius

    Ah, to hell with it…..I’m gonna start drinkin’

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      I’m shocked it took you this long. Join the collective, brother.

    • 2883

      Bourbon? or Beer? I started with a beer..I’m hesitant to switch now to bourbon

      • Hi, I’m Bob LeDonne

        Always bourbon.

        • 2883

          Bourbon scores goals, you sir are a prophet.

      • Sparky_The_Barbarian

        OR ? What is this OR you speak of?

  • CozBullsFan

    3rd period thread broken for anyone else?

    • Flavius

      It’s broken for all the world….near as I can tell

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Yep. NOT FOUND

  • 2883

    Yup 3rd perio thread is broken, bad juju…

  • DesertHawk

    Still no go. Let’s do this boyos.

  • Flavius

    I have apparently traveled to the future….Disqus says I have -1 new notifications….negative one.

    • DesertHawk

      Every time I check them, it changes to -1

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    ?!?!?

  • Z-man19

    C’mon goal

  • Z-man19

    That’s a goal

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    That;s a fucking goal!

  • Red Black and Copper

    GOAL!!!!

  • Flavius

    That better be a goal, Toronto

  • 10thMountainFire

    Yep, that’s a goal. Tie game.

  • CozBullsFan

    that’s gotta be a goal

  • 2883

    Good goal staying in this thread

  • DesertHawk

    That’s pretty clear…. so I’m anticipating it being disallowed.

  • CozBullsFan

    YAY!

  • DesertHawk

    Oh damnit don’t bring up fucking intent to blow.

  • Z-man19

    If this is intent to blow, baby rabbits will die

  • Face of Boe

    hell yeah!

  • Flavius

    STALS!!!! GOOD JOB ROSZY!

  • CozBullsFan

    I guess the hamsters died at Disqus again. update not working.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Now let’s win this in regulation.

  • Flavius

    I’m gettin’ a man crush on Oduya

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Still remembering the last minute stoopidness from a few games ago.

      • 10thMountainFire

        I’m remembering his awesomeness this game.

  • Red Black and Copper

    The Threads have officially failed us….. I am not getting auto updates, the third period thread is dead, there are 50 alerts for me that aren’t there…. There has to be something better than this guys, there HAS to be.

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Yahoo IM?

      • Red Black and Copper

        What about that commercial for the fan chat I’ve seen 50 times this game?? That could somehow be incorporated I would think….

        • DesertHawk

          It’s an app… I really don’t have any interest in trying to do a GDT on my phone.

        • 2883

          Yapper? Also there’s a site called Mibbit that’s an IRC chat.

      • DesertHawk

        AIM Chat?

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

          SBN?

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Boys in the Indianhead are feeling it.

  • 10thMountainFire

    Look! No Bollig!

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

      I Can’t Believe Its Not Bollig!

      • Flavius

        No Bollig, as far as I can tell

  • DesertHawk

    Hope Khabi is ok, but maybe just a bit rattled for the rest of the game.

  • Flavius

    That’s good analysis, there Foley

    • Z-man19

      The 500 games with no mask?

      • Flavius

        No….the “here’s a chance for the Hawks to regroup their offense and do their thing, unless the Oilers do their thing”

        • Z-man19

          500 straight games with no mask, that record will never be broken, no shit

      • Joe Banks

        I used to play goalie for a dart team… now THAT was rough!

  • Joe Banks

    Third period thread is a turd?

    • 10thMountainFire

      Yep. I can smell it.

      • Joe Banks

        Stinky Linky

        • 10thMountainFire

          What? Han Solo ain’t never had no sex with Princess Leia in the Star War!

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Hoss can’t buy a break tonight.

  • zacked

    If you’ve felt the hawks have been dominant in keeping the puck in the Oiler’s end, despite the shots being fairly close, you’d be right. Add in the blocked shots and the missed shots, and its 52-29.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Razor put Oduya in a bad position. And he takes a penalty.

    • Z-man19

      Yep

  • Z-man19

    Shit

  • Red Black and Copper

    FUCK FUCK FUCK…. another god damn penalty…..

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      This is on Razor for putting Odyua in a bad spot.

      • Red Black and Copper

        Yep…. Refs have missed more than a few for us but a broken stick is hard to miss….

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    We need a SHORTY

    • Z-man19

      I’ll take a kill

  • Flavius

    How hard is it for players to understand and refs to enforce? If you see the man’s name on his jersey, it’s an illegal hit, more so at the boards….Unreal.

  • 10thMountainFire

    What’s ‘backchecking’?

  • robondacob

    the refs have been brutal today

    • zacked

      Every one of the hawks penalties were indisputable. And they’ve let boarding go on both teams.

  • Joe Banks

    GO HAWKS GO!!!

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Kruger kill it himself.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Let’s build some MO off that kill.

  • Flavius

    Somehow Eager missed it…..self explanatory

  • 2883

    Is Bolland still missing ?

    • Z-man19

      Yes

      • Flavius

        I think they know where he is, though….they just won’t tell us….and they won’t let him play ice hockey

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

          he’s somewhere talking about lotion and baskets and the hose

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      10-4

    • CozBullsFan

      Yup, still out. Q said he may start skating this week though.

  • Z-man19

    Stals with the whiff

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

    Q has gone line trazy

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    O Zone draw. Let’s get one now and finish this.

    • Joe Banks

      Yes!

  • Z-man19

    FUCK ME

  • 10thMountainFire

    Hahaha I could feel Carcillo get nervous all alone in the zone with the puck…

    ‘What the fuck! This isn’t my job!’

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Those numbers look like a good target.

    • DesertHawk

      2nd time tonight, I think

      • 10thMountainFire

        Car bomb is having himself quite the game.

        • Red Black and Copper

          If only he could put one in the back of the net….

          • 10thMountainFire

            Sometime puck no go where want it net.

  • Joe Banks

    Toews couldn’t hit water if he fell out of a boat tonight.

    • 10thMountainFire

      Well, now Johnny Serious scores the game-winner.

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

      must be an upboat

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Oilers REALLY pinching, even without possession.

    • 10thMountainFire

      …hence the shorthanded goal earlier.

      • zacked

        Uh, the shortie was 100% keith toepicking then losing an edge.

        • DesertHawk

          Then Emery thinking he had the puck.

    • Joe Banks

      They’re pinching, and I’m clenching…

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Both teams changing with the puck in the neutral zone.

  • 2883

    they must be rotating the lines i’ve seen some weird combintions

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Lots of Firehouse changes with a long time between whistles.

    • Z-man19

      Serious blending

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    NOW is the time,

    • Flavius

      The time is NOW

      • Z-man19

        Time is the now

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

          Is the time now?

          • Z-man19

            Not anymore

          • Flavius

            New NOW

          • Z-man19

            Starting now

          • Flavius

            Wait…..no, NOW

          • Z-man19

            Now now or later now?

          • Flavius

            We couldn’t have known it…..we were on Hossa time.

          • Z-man19

            We are always on Hossa time

  • 2883

    Rally bourbon, storm the Bulin wall and my liver

  • Flavius

    So…..I’m gonna go ahead and call this third period thread link dead

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

      Not Found like Johnnson

  • CozBullsFan

    All these Q line changes have really messed up passing chemistry.

    • Flavius

      Please

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

    rallycorndogs here we go

  • Joe Banks

    Mr. Gorbachev, Tear Down This Wall!!!

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Regulation Game winner, if there is one, will be ugly.

  • robondacob

    in the famous, monotone words of jonny t, “let’s do this”

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Nice back check, Shaw

  • Z-man19

    Rosz has been solid

    • 10thMountainFire

      This.

    • Flavius

      He looked like he was battling it early, but recovered, fought through it….good game

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    And the streak is alive.

  • 2883

    le streak continues

  • DesertHawk

    Don’t care, got a point!

  • Z-man19

    And the streak lives, I’ll take it

  • CozBullsFan

    Streak is safe!

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

    ok. if we’re gonna keep the streak, might as well get the extra point

  • Z-man19

    42 hits, seriously?

    • 10thMountainFire

      I noticed Shaw and Carcillo, specifically.

      • Flavius

        That guy from Dallas must be in town keeping score

        • 10thMountainFire

          Aye.

      • Z-man19

        For the oil

    • DesertHawk

      That’s like a whole season worth for us…

  • 10thMountainFire

    I really don’t give a fuck other than the point. I’d like two. So win this in OT and let’s go to Shitsville, MO.

  • zacked

    In honor of Sparky: go, for the eyes, boo! GO FOR THE EYEEEEEEEEESSSS!

    • DesertHawk

      RRRRARRRGHHHHH!!!!!

  • CornelisonsFlagPointer

    Deliver death suddenly hawks!

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Once more unto the crease, dear friends, once more,
    and fill the net up with their defensemen.

    • DesertHawk

      And the broken sticks of their netminders.

  • 10thMountainFire

    Blowout + knees = funny.

  • Red Black and Copper

    Please end this without going to the coin flip….

    • 10thMountainFire

      Home run hitting contest…

      • Accipiter

        was cancelled due to HOSSA !

        • 10thMountainFire

          It happens from time to time. Even meteorologists don’t see them coming.

          • Accipiter

            No one does, even the animals are caught off guard.

          • 10thMountainFire

            It’s like a tsunami.

    • Z-man19

      Hossa says yes sir

  • Red Black and Copper

    Hoooooooosssssaaaaa!!!!!!

  • Z-man19

    HORSA

  • Flavius

    HOSSA MOTHERFUCKERS!!!!

  • CozBullsFan

    HOSSAAAA!

  • 10thMountainFire

    MY NAME IS MARIAN FUCKING HOSSA!!!

    • DesertHawk

      Ahem… *HIs

      • 10thMountainFire

        Stop it! I’m having a moment!

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

    IS MY MAN. IS HOSSA

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    PANDA there it is, finally.

  • 2883

    DAT HORSA GUY FROM THAT SHAPRIE DUDE

  • CornelisonsFlagPointer

    CUE THE DAGGER!

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    HUGE kudos to Sharpie for making that happen.

    • Z-man19

      That ^

  • 2883

    BOURBON SAVES THE DAY

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      First time second period scotch has failed me, glad the bourbon was there to pick up the slack.

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

    Holy shit. This streak done gone trazy.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    We’re stealing points we should win easily, but these are the sorts of games we lost last year.

  • 10thMountainFire

    You know why we’re awesome? Because we have a fucking HOSSA.

    • Red Black and Copper

      this

  • CornelisonsFlagPointer

    Hossa with the reacharound again!

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      He was so snakebit all game, justice is served.

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

    we get to hear Hossa

  • 10thMountainFire

    Marian Hossa: greatest man of all time or all-time’s greatest man?

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

      greatest shoes of all times

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      How dare you call him a mere man.

  • DesertHawk

    I feel the Oilers are on the cusp of being legit. I think they have to figure out how to play against teams who won’t let them run and gun, and then they’ll be dangerous.

    • 10thMountainFire

      They’re going to be really, really good very soon.

    • Z-man19

      That and get a Dman or 2

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

      They have a decent half defense. They get a whole defense and their offense starts clicking 5-on-5…

      Might be a couple years yet, but they are moving in the right direction.

      • DesertHawk

        I like playing them, sans blowouts which didn’t happen, because the games are fast and exciting… maybe one day the whole league will be that way. :pipe dreams:

    • Flavius

      I think they need some veteran leadership…..but yeah, tons of talent and energy….Hall wasn’t even out there tonight

      • Accipiter

        Hall is their best all round player.

    Ok. I admit. Carello’s hits were a factor in this game. If he keeps them clean he can stay.

    Yay, gamecenter gave the 3 stars and post game interview! I wrote in a complaint after last game, hopefully that helped

          I guess that’s the way the whole durned human comedy keeps perpetuatin’ itself.

    Hossa says, “The game is over when *I* say it’s over.”

  • Accipiter

    No Pants 16-0-3.

    • 10thMountainFire

      That’s not accurate. You’ve been pantsless for years.

      • Accipiter

        You cannot drag this negative energy in to the tournament !

    • Z-man19

      Take ALL your pants to Goodwill

  • LAHawksFan

    Crazy to think that we are nearing the halfway mark and and the boys have yet to lose in regulation. Been a fun ride so far. It hasn’t always been pretty, but good teams find a way to win even when not at their best. Fortunately this team is back on the right side of things. Go Hawks!!

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    See you Thursday gang, unfortunately that’s when Game Of Thrones Disk 2 shows up from Netflix, so I will be late, but watching the stream.

    • PerkisPower8

      John Scott = Gregor Clegane.

        Except Clegane is probably good at hockey.

      Just bring the scotch

  • 10thMountainFire

    The best part about this is that we’re not playing extraordinarily well right now… and still winning. Wait until Johnny and the gang hit their stride. Whoa.

    • Z-man19

      Sharp ever gets hot, hide the kids

      • 10thMountainFire

        If your kids are grown women, always hide them around Sharp.

        • Z-man19

          More like Kane

          • 10thMountainFire

            Only if they live in Vancouver.

          • Z-man19

            Boom tish, try the veal

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    D men for Edmonton should be feeling a lot of shame. Not only does Sharp pants them both, but they both follow Shooter and leave their Goalie at the mercy of Marion Fucking Hossa.

    • 10thMountainFire

      Leaving your goaltender at the mercy of Marian Hossa is like invading Russia in winter. You’re death is imminent, just lay down.

    That Enterprise NHL commercial… calls out the douchiest teams by name. Vancouver, St. Louis, and Philadelphia. really…

    • 10thMountainFire

      Every time a Hawks fan on this board calls the Canucks ‘douches’, an anarchist starts a dumpster fire in Vancouver.

      • Country_Bumpkin

        douche douche douche douche

  • Z-man19

    Oduya’s play on Gagne was huge, HUGE

    • CozBullsFan

      Yup. Oduya and Rosy had amazing performances tonight.

  • DesertHawk

    Oh shocker… they gave Clowe the easy out…

  • zacked

    I thought so live, but watching the replay now I’m fairly sure that Shaw deserves a lot of the blame for the first goal. He stopped skating when Petry did, which let Petry get the jump on the rebound unopposed.

  • Z-man19

    No looking, TOI for Duncs over or under 18 minutes?

      • justforkicks

        and the opposite for shaw

        • 10thMountainFire

          Yeah. That has to improve if you’re going to skate with Kaner this season.

          • justforkicks

            though he’s probably used to chasing the puck at this point

          • 10thMountainFire

            Seems to be his forte, actually.

          • laaarmer

            OH, now it matters?

  • Flavius

    Odd that Yakupov pulled the third star, no? His coach benched him for several minutes for gutless and dumb play….not dumping on the kid, he’s a rookie, but third star tonight?….How about Roszy or Oduya or Khabby? major media “experts”

    • Z-man19

      He gets Konroyd’s high flying hawk, Rosz that is

  • CozBullsFan

    Anyone else watching the Kings/Ducks game? Hoping Kings pull out a win to put some distance between the Hawks and Ducks.

    • justforkicks

      no but yes please

  • justforkicks

    So that makes Emery 8-0-0 right? Unreal. Also some of the comments at CoopernBlue are hilarious

    • Z-man19

      Disgruntled?

      • justforkicks

        its a mix. some are just funny

        “Oh good. 4 on 4 against the Hawks.

        ‘Cause the play wasn’t lopsided enough 5v5…” from Alan Hull for example

        And:

        “Surprised Eager didn’t concuss himself whiffing on that Gagner setup.” from Derek Zona.

        Lots of other winners there too

        • 10thMountainFire

          Hahaha

        • Z-man19

          I think all the paste prevents Eager from concussing himself

  • CozBullsFan

    Ducks up 2-1 now. :/

    • justforkicks

      booooooo

      • 10thMountainFire

        This.

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

            He fixes the cable?

  • justahawkfan

    Was Keith benched in the third? I understand he blew a tire in the first and might have put him off for the rest of the game, but Biscuit didn’t play at all either after the 15th minute in the 3rd as well. And he took shifts without Duncs in the 1st as well. Doubt the beats will ask.

    • Z-man19

      I’d be more concerned he got dinged up

      • Accipiter

        Seabs took a couple big hits, not sure about Duncs.

        • Z-man19

          His biscuits are probably still tender

      • justahawkfan

        If only one sat, then I’d be thinking injury, but both? I know they have to do everything together, but I’d hope they wouldn’t decide on a press box date at the same time.

    • justforkicks

      just looked at twitter and don’t see anything except someone saying it was a skate malfunction after the blow out – not sure that’d account for being off ice for 8 mins though?

      • justahawkfan

        Possibly? I don’t know much about gear reparations honestly. It’s that both sat that confuses me. I don’t think their play warranted a benching, and it’s very unlike Q to sit his top pairings, no matter how good Hammer and Oduya have been playing.

        Oh well, I’ll just consider it as Keith earning back some years of his life that Q shaved off in years previously.

        Rumors Of LA’s Demise Have Been Greatly Exaggerated

  • birdhead

    Kings win! 5-2. Also it’s nice to know that everyone’s star of the game interviewers are as dippy as everyone else’s. “How much fun was that?!”

  • Toews still makes funny faces!

    So what is better-worse

    Out of the 19 games played, the Hawks are 10-0-3 in one goal games or out of 19 games played the Hawks have played in 13 one goal games?

    The streak is awesome, but for going 16-0-3 and to have only a +24 GD, that is not reflecting dominant wins, but good-close wins. Is good-close good enough vs a another top Conf team in a 7 game series? from what I have seen I like the Hawks chances, but I am far from confident the Hawks can take any team in 7 just yet. I would like to see a couple-few more 2+ goal solid wins then what has been seen so far.

    • http://twitter.com/llUrbanAchiever Jeff Lebowski

      This sounds like Blackhawk-people problems to me. The next closest team is the Penguins (13-6-0) with +17 and then the Ducks (13-3-1) with +12.

      The ability to win close games is more important to me than the ability to blow teams out of the water. Close games define the playoffs.

      Not to mention that the general intensity level of our games has been increased by teams trying to make their own history by ending our streak. As the players have been saying, this whole season feels like the playoffs.
