Well, that was strange. Seems like the Hawks have this game once or twice a year, where they put up a pornagraphic number of shots but don’t break through, give up a sucker punch, scramble to tie it, and then lose in OT or a shootout (or sometimes they don’t even tie it) I guess it’s good they got this one out of the way early?

Burkie’s Fightin’ Barn: Flames Nation
For the first time in like 58 meetings or some unholy number, the Flames actually marched into the United Center last November and emerged with two points thanks to Kris Russel’s seeing-eye overtime point shot that eluded Corey Crawford, one too many points left on the table by last year’s Hawks team. Both teams are in similar positions nearly a year later, with the Hawks maintaining championship aspirations, and the Flames still figuring out how to be competitive in the post Iginla era.
The Rockford IceHogs got the 2014-15 season underway this past Saturday at the BMO Harris Bank Center. The Milwaukee Admirals cast a pall on the festivities for the 5,228 fans in attendance, besting Rockford by a score of 3-2.
With just one contest in the books, I’m putting this opening game under a bit of a microscope. Here’s how the puck bounced for the IceHogs as they threw open the doors on the new campaign.
