    2nd Period Scotch in hand. Let’s do this.

    LET’S GO HAWKS!

    MOAR HAWKS GOALS

    • 2883

      This…. Lots and lots of Hawks goals.

  • CozBullsFan

    Let’s go Hawks!

  • Chesterfield King

    MOAR HAWKS GOALS

    MOAR

    • flavius

      Good call….I’m on board with this

  • QCBlackhawk
    • DesertHawk

      Oh bollywood

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    Alright guys, I’m finally here! Let’s do this!

    • flavius

      I’m not the one who drank your drink, but…..it’s gone

  • derlemke

    Gibt mir mien goals

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    Really guys, Columbus “improved and on the upswing”?…

    • Chesterfield King

      Well, bad is still better than complete shit

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Better than saying, “The Hawks Blew last night.”

  • Chesterfield King

    NICE crow

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    Anybody else completely over this Andrew Shaw experiment?

    • QCBlackhawk

      As opposed to…?

      • dirkgrahamsmustache

        I meant Shaw as 3C. Flip around Kruger and him.

        • QCBlackhawk

          Ah. Yeah Kruger was getting some pretty good draw percentages.

          • dirkgrahamsmustache

            Shaw just seems addicted to turnovers. I think Hammer gave him whatever ailment he had last year.

        • The_FFF

          Yes please.

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      He needs time. He’s where Stalls was two years ago.

      • Z-man19

        I find this a little optimistic IMHO

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

        My guess is that there was a reason Shaw wasn’t drafted prior to being an overager and last year was some sort of “Random Twins outfield who hits .320 in the mid 00s” type year.

      • flavius

        minus the speed……and size…..and Swedishness

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Bad case of Trying To Pass Through People.

  • ahnfire
  • Chesterfield King

    the fuck was that, brookbank

  • flavius

    I’m gettin’ a bad feeling, man…

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Try some Pepto.

    • ahnfire

      ask Stacie for some koolaid

    • QCBlackhawk

      Let a fart go if you don’t think anything will try to chase it out.

      • Z-man19

        Don’t shart

        • QCBlackhawk

          Gamble and lose.

          • Z-man19

            That’s hard to blame on your kids

  • SteveFrench

    Is anyone in Andersonville/Uptown experiencing a comcast outage?

  • Joe Banks

    Go Hawks Go!

  • 2883

    Hawks playing well, let’s get some distance though

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    One of the reason we’re having good Puck Possession, is that Scum is giving us the boards and clogging the lane. Waiting for that one big mistake.

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

      Very true, I noticed that too. Hawks can do what ever they want out on the perimeter, but even Kane is struggling keeping the puck/getting through the middle.

  • Chesterfield King

    everyone seems kinda down right now. I’m having a grand old time

  • 2883

    Is there a reason Rozsival didn’t get the go tonight? Injury?

  • ahnfire

    oh Brookbank – we’re the ones in RED. pass to the ones in RED.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    There’s another N zone TO.

  • Z-man19

    Why is Moonpie out there against Datsuk

    • The_FFF

      Why is he Moonpie? (Did I already ask this?)

      • Z-man19

        I can’t recall, someone came up with it right after we signed him

      • birdhead

        After Sheldon Cooper (Big Bang Theory).

        • ahnfire

          please elaborate more. I don’t watch that show…

          • birdhead

            Sheldon Cooper’s grandmother calls him Moonpie but I don’t watch it either. :P It’s about as obscure as Frogger, probably.

  • Joe Banks

    It’s to soon to make anyone walk the plank, but Brookbank makes me nervious

  • ahnfire

    oh Stals. that was a whiff.

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    Man, that possession almost looked too easy.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    We haven’t had an odd man break, have we? Except maybe a Bolland 2-1 in the first? Far cry from the last three games.

  • ahnfire

    I am not enjoying the Moonpie experience.

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Brookbank?

      • ahnfire

        yes.

    • Z-man19

      Lets just hope we don’t need him to play top 5 min

    • flavius

      Better than Boynton……yeah, that doesn’t work anymore, does it?

      • ahnfire

        #shouldvebeenboynton… wait, no.

    • The_FFF

      Can you explain the “Moonpie” name, ahn?

  • Chesterfield King

    Well, the Sharks scored in the first forty seconds on the Nucks

    • Chesterfield King

      Now 2-0 sharks over Nucks

      L.O.L.

  • Z-man19

    Public service announcement: Brookbank=Moonpie

  • happyhuman

    Yikes

  • flavius

    Backwards Turco save…..WOO-HOO

  • ahnfire

    EEEEEK DON’T DO THAT.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Note to the Hawks. Stop passing to the guys in WHITE

    Finally the Wings clear it for us.

  • Z-man19

    Ah fuck

  • Chesterfield King

    yeesh

  • 2883

    Fuck… 2 minutes..

  • ahnfire

    GAH DO NOT LIKE THIS HAWKS.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    WTF? 5-3 Come on, Hawks, get your Feces Consolidated.

  • flavius

    All right, I’ll be lucky to live through this

  • flavius

    Franzen out 3 months

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Hope not.

      • flavius

        I meant minutes

  • ahnfire

    what happened?!?

  • Z-man19

    The mule is down

  • 2883

    What happened to Frazen?

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Looks like he just buckled. Didn’t see Hammer do anything.

      • QCBlackhawk

        Bolland being an asshole.

        • Sparky_The_Barbarian

          Bolland being Bolland?

          • QCBlackhawk

            Pretty much, caught him in the short ribs with the point of his stick’s curve.

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

            Someone gonna take a run at him later? I still haven’t seen it.

    • AMR

      Sniper?

    • http://www.facebook.com/jimmy.cook.5621 Jimmy Cook

      Uterine Cramps?

  • Chesterfield King

    aren’t mules like, sturdy, or something?

  • birdhead

    Had to get back to work after watching the first period at lunch (on my phone, I love living in the future). How do they look this period?

  • ahnfire

    someone with a scum feed said they thought Hjammer speared him in the ribs?

    • QCBlackhawk

      initially, ended up being Bolland

      • Accipiter

        Sounds about right.

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      I really hope not. Doesn’t sound like Hammer.

      • QCBlackhawk

        I’m watching the Det feed. It was clearly Bolland being a dick.

        • ahnfire

          yea I rewound my DVR

          Bolland, you rat bastard.

          • flavius

            hee-hee….no, i’m sorry, i’m laughing at something else

      • ahnfire

        I don’t see how. all the replays looked like hjammer didn’t touch him

      • Chesterfield King

        bunch o’goons

  • The_FFF

    FINALLY a clear

  • ahnfire

    GOOD JOB FROGGER

  • Z-man19

    Too many passes

  • Chesterfield King

    froggy boy

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Double Kill.

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    Anybody else sick of hearing about how awesome Brunner supposedly is? Yeah, a 2-0-2 stat line totally suggests they found their savior…

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    And back to the PK…..

  • ahnfire

    GODDAMNIT HAWKS.

  • 2883

    No mas penalties

  • flavius

    Holy Fuck

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

    Why? Why.

  • Z-man19

    Are you shitting me

    • Accipiter

      I shit you not.

  • DesertHawk

    Internet picked an awesome time to die, how’d we end up down 2 men… also yay for TMM :sigh:

  • Chesterfield King

    LOL BLACKHAWKS

  • mightymikeD

    TOO MUCH MEN IS BAD THING

    • Z-man19

      Took long enough for refs to notice

  • Z-man19

    I really like the Brow on the PK

    • Chesterfield King

      I like the Brow on everything right now

    • QCBlackhawk

      That just sounds like Brouwer and then I get sad.

  • stacie7

    We really don’t need to pad our PK stats tonight OK guys?

    • QCBlackhawk

      Wait until PP over to say these things? >_<

  • AMR

    We are really testing our PK and their PP aren’t we?

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    If we can stay at even strength for more than two minutes, maybe we can turn these kills into some offensive momentum.

  • Chesterfield King

    lol

    • stacie7

      Whacha laughing at chester cheeta?

      • Z-man19

        He’s dunking bagels in his cherry kool aide

        • Chesterfield King

          I’d never do that to bagels don’t even joke

          • Z-man19

            You take your bagels seriously then?

          • Chesterfield King

            fa’sho

      • Chesterfield King

        It’s like blackhawks trollin’: Here, have a powerplay. Just kidding! You won’t score.

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    The team obviously appears to have rectified most of its weaknesses from last year, but they seem to have taken more penalties, especially of the dumb variety, than last season.

  • flavius

    OK, no more penalties

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    LOL Quincey

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Rally Rats!

  • 2883

    Time for a Rally beer..

    • KingTalkyTiki

      Hangover be damned, I might need to crack one

  • Joe Banks

    there’s not enough liquor in my house to get through this

    • flavius

      google “liquor delivery”

      • Z-man19

        Or put some fruit in a barrel and let it sit

        • 2883

          takes too long for that

          • flavius

            time is the key variable here….well, time and location…..time and location are the key variables

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    Whoever said the giggle parade was in midseason form hit the nail on the head.

  • flavius

    God damn it…..we need a new period…..or a goal

  • Z-man19

    Just me or is the 3rd pairing getting a lot of time tonight?

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

    That was the 4th Hawks shot on goal this period. Not good.

    • KingTalkyTiki

      Do not like period two.

  • chidiver

    Hi honey, I’m ho-ome. Did I miss anything?

    • Chesterfield King

      naaaahhhhh

      • chidiver

        Have you broken out the bagels yet?

        • Chesterfield King

          no need… yet… but I am kinda hungry…

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      No. Ignore the four naked men. They’re just here to hook up the new gas cooker.

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

    Score goal, yes?

  • 2883

    For fuckssakes…..

  • Z-man19

    FUCKING STOP ALREADY

  • The Doctor

    Nice, Mayers. Nice.

  • Chesterfield King

    LOL BLACKHAWKS

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Oy, Vay. Get it together, guys.

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    WTF was Jammer thinking?

  • flavius

    Yay, more penalties

  • KingTalkyTiki

    *head wall*

  • DesertHawk

    I love how it’s just acceptable to have one’s internet service not function…. glad non of the other services I pay for at my house have that kinda lasse faire attitude.

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Um…. we were…. um….um… doing maintenance…. um…. yeah…. sorry for any inconvenience (giggle)

      • DesertHawk

        Seriously though, I want water I get water, I want electricity or gas, I get both of those… I pay about 100$ a month for my net, and I’m currently using my cell phone as a hot spot, in my own damn house. The big ISPs can go suck a fat one.

  • JRF

    Bad Hawks, bad.

  • ahnfire

    STOP WITH THE PENALTIES, HAWKS. GAWD.

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    Say hello to the press box, Jammer. The Quenneville line-jockeying game awaits…

    • The Doctor

      I don’t think the guy with the second best +/- is going to the press box.

      • dirkgrahamsmustache

        I meant Jammer (Mayers), not Hammer (Hjalmarsson).

        • The Doctor

          Ah, got ya. Yeah, that I can definitely see.

          • dirkgrahamsmustache

            Hammer has played very well this year. He ain’t going anywhere.

          • The Doctor

            Yeah, definitely liking his play so far. Very 2010-esque.

      • dirkgrahamsmustache

        We already know Q loves Bollig. He won’t hesitate to make the switch.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Nice Stick, Oduya.

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    Seriously, has Brunner done anything impressive? He seems entirely pedestrian.

  • The_FFF

    I can’t produce saliva anymore.

    • Z-man19

      A nice cold, frothy beer. That help?

      • The_FFF

        That’s not a bad idea.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Well, this is certainly helping our PK stats.

    • QCBlackhawk

      I’d prefer a fucking goal for us.

    • AMR

      I am done with the Hawks being on the PK lets go on the PP and score some goals

  • chidiver

    So…is our PK this good? Or does their PP suck that bad, post Fatass and Lidstrom?

    • DesertHawk

      Yes

      • chidiver

        Got it!

  • flavius

    Holy mother of Jeebus….I survived

  • Chesterfield King

    That was kind of hilarious

  • JRF

    PK looks good. Not much else to say.

    • Accipiter

      Subban ?

    • QCBlackhawk

      Energy level is pretty good for it being the second game in as many days. too bad they’re using it wrong (other than the PK)

  • 2883

    Eventually all these penalties are gonna hurt us

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      I would like to think we will take some MO from the PK and turn it into offense, like other teams do to us.

      • 2883

        Maybe but you have to stop being on the PK for that…

  • KingTalkyTiki

    The bright side is how frustrating that period must’ve been to watch as a Scum fan….

    • QCBlackhawk

      Yeah we had that all last year. “WHY CAN’T WE SCORE ON ONE OF THESE FUCKING POWER PLAYS!?”

      • KingTalkyTiki

        I remember the feeling well…..

  • The Doctor

    Detroit’s best period this season has been the second. We made it through that. Hopefully it didn’t take too much out of our guys, but I’m betting on a much more balanced third period, perhaps slightly in our favor.

  • ahnfire

    stats through 2

    SOG: SCUM 20 – 17 CHI
    Hits: SCUM 11 – 9 CHI
    Give: SCUM 3 – 10 CHI
    Take: SCUM 2 – 11 CHI
    Block: SCUM 8 – 12 CHI
    F/Os: SCUM 54% – 46% CHI

    Kruger – 6/10 – 60%
    Toews – 4/10 – 40%
    Mayers – 2/4 – 50%
    Bolland – 4/11 – 36%
    Shaw – 2/3 – 67%
    Frolik – 0/1 – 0%

    • QCBlackhawk

      Apparently Kruger is taking more draws than Shaw… soooo experiment done?

      • Z-man19

        Lets hope

    • Accipiter

      Bolland living up to the legend.

    • flavius

      20-17? OK, perspective…..doing better now….it felt worse than that

      • The Doctor

        Do they count clears on the PK that go on net as shots? Because it seems that’s where most of our SOGs came from in the 2nd.

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      It’s really amazing we have the lead.

    • chidiver

      Oh!?…Hi mom!…didn’t know you were here.

      /hides beer

      • ahnfire

        you better hide that beer.

        especially because you didn’t bring me one.

        • 2883

          Rally beers…. I told everyone to grab them

          • chidiver

            The dog is very obedient.

        • chidiver

          Um….I did…but..um..the dog drank it.

          • Chesterfield King

            We need to have a talk about the dog. He can’t stop drinking. We need an intervention.

          • ahnfire

            psh. typical story.

  • Chesterfield King

    shoot that shit

  • DesertHawk

    This baseball player keeps forgetting where he’s at…

  • mightymikeD

    never heard someone get booed on shoot the puck

    • ahnfire

      what are you talking about? they always boo the guy, unless he’s famous.

    • chidiver

      Always boo the dude. Its tradition. The only reason he got some cheers is because he’s a Sox (is “Sox” plural or singular?)

  • ahnfire

    aight children, time to move along to the next thread.
