        upbox for you (also twss).

      • Z-man19

        You must be doing it wrong

        • Accipiter

          Must I ?

  • Accipiter

    Penalties are bad, mmkay.

    • DesertHawk

      If you get a lot of penalties in a game, you’re gonna have a bad time.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    SHUT UP ABOUT CROW!

    • Accipiter

        • Sparky_The_Barbarian

          I only care about winning the F*ing game. Don’t care about the score or how we play. This is SCUM!

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

      You mean about him maybe having a shutoff valve on his water heater?

  • JRF

    Well said @1davecannon

  • Minorhawk

    No shit…what an asshat!!

    • DesertHawk

      what got said?

  • 2883

    NO MORE PENALTIES, LOTS MOAR HAWKS GOALS

    • KingTalkyTiki

      *pounds on table*

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    What do you guys think: any chance we can keep the Rat next year?

    • CozBullsFan

      I’m guessing we will.

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      I suspect this is why we have NOT signed a big name 2C or G

      • dirkgrahamsmustache

        Still seems tough; per Capgeek, we have 18 players signed for about $60M next year, with a $66M cap.

        • 2883

          65.4 next year

          • Accipiter

            64.3

          • 2883

            worse than i thought it was…. a lot worse

        • dirkgrahamsmustache

          So where does the space for Bolly come from?

          • Accipiter

            An Olesz buyout.

          • QCBlackhawk

            Ding Ding. 3+ mill cap hit for not playing atm

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

      Anybody here think he does not deserve to be paid like a 2nd line center?

    • JRF

      If he stays the 2c, he’ll have his best offensive year. My guess is a longterm deal, with a modest raise.

  • Chesterfield King

    John Cusack is at the show tonight.

    Blackhawks twitter feed made a High Fidelity joke

  • flavius

    Gotta love the Kitch!

        • Z-man19

          Hawks selling PP like its the end of the year

          • BodomSlayer

            It was a going out of business sale!

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Passing is terrible the last two nights. Fatigue or bad ice?

    • ahnfire

      I think maybe a little fatigue? :|

    • Z-man19

      1st period was good, not so much since

  • ahnfire

    c’mon Hawks

  • 2883

    it looks like Q is playing with his d pairings 2 and 4 were playing together there

  • DesertHawk

    CROW!!!

  • 2883

    Jesus this is ugly

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Wow, How did that not get to Crow. Z on the doorstep.

  • flavius

    Le’ts score goals, Blackhawks, eh

  • ahnfire

    Hey Hawks, let’s go play in that big smooth section of the ice by Jimmy Howard.

    • 2883

      hell I’ll settle for not in our zone

  • Chesterfield King

    fun fun fun fun fun fun fun fun fun

  • DesertHawk

    Bicks using the body

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Okay, we survived the initial storm, not let’s get a goal.

    Thank you

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

    I guess I will…uh…break out the tots.

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    Poor Crow can’t buy a shutout.

    • Joe Banks

      CSN guy jinxed it between periods

      • DesertHawk

        I hate that guy, he’s an asshat.

        • Joe Banks

          You just insulted asshats everywhere

          • DesertHawk

            I’m sorry asshats, that was a thoughtless comment.

          • flavius

            Not saying I’m an asshat, mind you, but…..apology accepted

  • Joe Banks

    so non-chalant in our zone…

  • flavius

    All right, #ShawFacts……we need your in condition young legs to produce something here

    • The_FFF

      Except I’d prefer if he wasn’t the one trying to defend the Datsyuk line!

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

    I would say we look like dog crap at this point, but even dog crap has some form.

    • Accipiter

      Especially the white stuff.

  • Joe Banks

    Is NHL gift-wrapping this?

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Crow doing his part.

    • Z-man19

      He’s been good, again

  • The Doctor

    Our team D looks like shit right now.

  • QCBlackhawk

    Dudes need to play like they don’t want to see overtime (the right way).

  • Chesterfield King

    BAGEL TOASTED BUTTERED AND DELICIOUS

  • ahnfire

    wtf was that Bicks?

    • flavius

      I don’t think there are more than 5 guys with feeling left in their legs after half a shift

  • Z-man19

    Fatigue bicks?

  • QCBlackhawk

    Bickell doing his best Kopecky impression

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    The boys are gassed.

  • DesertHawk

    Grunt through it boys.

    • Z-man19

      We’re gonna need some luck to win this one

  • 2883

    Thy need to get their legs underneath them…

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Barring a Det TO and an odd man rush, or a brain fart by Howard, hard to see how we’re going to win this in regulation.

    • flavius

      TV timeout might help….we’ll see

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    rally hat on. Let’s go Hawks.

  • Z-man19

    Nice work Saad

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Okay, let’s cash in a PP

  • ahnfire

    A POWERPLAY OMG

  • QCBlackhawk

    MF’ing Clown Shoooeeeeees

    I was wondering where we left the clown shoes

    • mightymikeD

      right there..

      • chidiver

        Found em. Now lets throw em away this time!

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

    D2K does have some wheels

  • ahnfire

    ugh the Hawks all need new legs.

  • Z-man19

    Keep Saad out there, he’s got some left

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Johnny draws a penalty.

  • DesertHawk

    That’s a good person to send to the box!

  • Z-man19

    CLOWNSHOES

  • ahnfire

    2nd try on the PP. let’s try spending it on the Scum zone, Hawks

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    Alright, come on, let’s pump out a goal and then scrape through the final few minutes!

  • QCBlackhawk

    Need to do this.

    • AMR

      need to score or at the very least get some momentum back

  • amontesawesome

    I’ve been real impressed with Saad this year. his corsi numbers have been fantastic. Part of that is his linemates but still.

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

    decline it

  • ahnfire

    that disapproving little girl is our powerplay spirit animal.

  • flavius

    DIG DEEP, HAWKS…..WE WANT ALL THE POINTS!

  • The_FFF

    HOW??

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    OHHHHH! So Close

  • Z-man19

    Shit shit shit

  • happyhuman

    Ahhh, come on!

  • QCBlackhawk

    HOW

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    Have to think fatigue played a role in that fail.

  • ahnfire

    UGHHHH SO CLOSE

  • DesertHawk

    Who the hell was that pass to?

    • Z-man19

      Crow

  • Z-man19

    Need some black magic

  • CornelisonsFlagPointer

    CLANG!

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Did I hear a PING?

    • Z-man19

      Yes

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    D2K, Norris version, has returned.

  • DesertHawk

    This is stressful

    • birdhead

      horrible.

    • chidiver

      Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue!

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Best flurry since the first period

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    Good thing we get three days off before the next game.

  • DesertHawk

    If only we had legs, that could’ve been a break away.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Win this in regulation for Crow.

  • QCBlackhawk

    The Detroit guys just said Crow has “done a very good job” of giving no rebounds and called him “Spongey”.

  • Joe Banks

    Go Hawks Go!

  • Chesterfield King

    I’m pretty zen right now for some reason

    • QCBlackhawk

      Because 11 points?

      • Chesterfield King

        Dunno. Not stressed out. Normally I am

      • chidiver

        I think its the bagels speaking. He’s loopy!

        • Chesterfield King

          NAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH

    • Z-man19

      It’s the kool aide

  • DesertHawk

    Nicely done Krugs

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    There’s a point.

  • The Doctor

    Douche-ass Bertuzzi.

    • dirkgrahamsmustache

      LOL, I thought the same thing: “Bertuzzi, douche’ing it up, as always.”

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    Pretty nice to get a point out of this!

  • flavius

    Duncan Keith, man…..Duncan Keith

  • ahnfire

    well, we got a point…

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

      Which is pretty much larceny…

    • 2883

      But i’m greedy I want 2

      • mightymikeD

        done

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    First time Crow gives up less than 1 in Reg and we can’t win it for him.

    • flavius

      Well, almost

    • laaarmer

      except they won

  • DesertHawk

    Not that big of a gap in SOG… odd

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    PK and Crow get us a point. Are we just hoping for the Shootout here?

    • The_FFF

      UGH NO

    • The Doctor

      Seems like our best bet.

  • chidiver

    I thought both goaltenders played very well so far.

    • The_FFF

      I thought howard looked shaky early. Would have been nice to be able to take more advantage of that.

      • Chesterfield King

        crawford was not great in the early going either

      • Z-man19

        That

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Howard was barely tested after the first.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    That would have been a2 on 1

  • QCBlackhawk

    “Patrick Sharp” Well there’s a name I haven’t heard in awhile…

    • Accipiter

      I haven’t heard the name Stu Grimson in awhile …

  • The_FFF

    Aw man Saad, so close!

    • dirkgrahamsmustache

      It would have rocked if he could have notched his first one in that fashion!

    • The Doctor

      This would be a good time for him to get on the board.

  • Chesterfield King

    NICE saad

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    No TMM for Det?

  • QCBlackhawk

    They just got away with TMM

  • Z-man19

    Fuck yes

    • The Doctor

      That was a steal if I’ve ever seen one. Crow has to be the first star tonight.

      • Z-man19

        He needs to be

        • dirkgrahamsmustache

          There you go!

      • dirkgrahamsmustache

        Lol, yeah, like I’ve said, the Hawks got screwed from bad luck so often the last two seasons, I love when things bounce their way.

  • ahnfire

    6-0!! 6-0!!! ALL THE POINTS BELONG TO US!!

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    Kaner’s first game of the season without a point. Time to fire up the trade demands from the meatballs!

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Luongo is still available. (snicker)

        I bet we can get dat Scott guy, AND dat Bufflin guy for him.

  • flavius

    Good on ya, Crow, congrats and good job, but…..HORRIBLE 3 star selection, perhaps worst in the history of EVER

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    We got the Karma.

  • ahnfire

    new girl didn’t ask about the crowd, did she?

    already I like her.

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Crowd sat on their hands for a lot of this game. Not that I blame them.

    • Accipiter

      She is spoken for.

      • ahnfire

        hahah that’s fine, you won’t get any competition from me.

    • Joe Banks

      how’s the old girl doing in new york?

  • Hi, I’m Bob LeDonne

    So, this is pretty cool.

    • mightymikeD

      I dunno.. once they trade everyone, maybe

  • The Doctor

    Having two days off will do wonders for them. Hope Q gives them tomorrow off. They’ve earned it.

  • JRF

    Crawford earned it today.

      • Z-man19

        Let us know how that works out for you

      • chidiver

        I prefer casual, no-relationship hockey. Kinda like a nice cuddle.

        • Accipiter

          Are you the big spoon or the little spoon ?

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

  • justforkicks

    ugly fucking game but I’ll take it. 6-0-0 bitches, all the points for hawks!!! and a well deserved win for Crow

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      A fucking ugly win against Detroit is to be expected, and is far superior to a fucking ugly win against CBJ.

    • Accipiter

      It’s a celebration bitches.

      • DesertHawk

        good plan

  • mightymikeD

    Goddamn. Someone with video-editing skillz (where’s BigC?) needs to make a “History Will Be Made” about this start

    • laaarmer

      Just show the exploding water bottle

      • mightymikeD

        exactly! in super slo- mo.. and then backwards “What if Teeth didn’t rip one past Howard like a Mother Fucker”

        • laaarmer

          Kaners pass, Hossas goal, Kaners jump, The water bottle, Leddy, Toews face, The water bottle

          • Z-man19

          • laaarmer

            We don’t talk about goalies here.

          • Z-man19

            I thought shot quality was your specialty

          • laaarmer

            It was the banner. they messed with the Hossa

  • Chesterfield King

    Neil Young is at the Sharks game

  • QCBlackhawk

    Holy balls we really did pad the PK stats tonight. We have a 95.6% kill
    http://www.nhl.com/ice/teamstats.htm#?navid=nav-sts-teams

    • DesertHawk

      All part of the plan

      • The 7th Hawk

  • ahnfire

    ahaha the pic on NHL.com for the Hawks recap – you can see #3 on Scum staring jealously at the Hawks group hockey-hug

    • Z-man19

      Toews with another funny face as well, nothing new I guess

    • Accipiter

      Poor Huskins. He was drafted by the Hawks. What could have been.

    • justforkicks

      i love it. hawks hockey hugs for life

  • laaarmer

    Here’s to good friends, tonight is kinda special
    The beer we’ll pour
    Must say something more somehow
    So tonight, tonight, let it be…………………..

    • Z-man19

      I’m waiting to see who knows this one

      • Accipiter

        It was you all along. You win.

    • Z-man19

      Lowenbrau? Is there a prize for this?

  • chidiver

    Is it wrong to cheer for Nucks so Hawks are the last perfect team?

    • Chesterfield King

      yes

    • birdhead

      I’m trying to figure that out too :(

      • chidiver

        I’m very confused. Hatred vs. Greed

        • birdhead

          It’s only their 5th game right? Who are they playing next? (I went and checked. The Ducks. I don’t know that the Ducks are really going to hold them up, do you?)

        • Z-man19

          Meteor? Seems the best option to me

          • chidiver

            Except I like the Sharktank. Great venue.

    • The_FFF

      I can’t bring myself to do it.

      • Chesterfield King

        The ONLY circumstance I’d root for the Nucks is if they were playing the Blues in the playoffs.

    • ahnfire

      I am cheering for the Nucks. EVERYONE ELSE CAN BE AVERAGE.

    • The Doctor

      I want them to beat San Jose and then just continue to fail the rest of the season.

    • chidiver

      Tough to cheer against Nemo. I have fond memories of him in goal ;-)

      • The_FFF

        Me too. If Greiss were in nets instead, it might be a little bit harder decision to make.

    • The 7th Hawk

      Nah, let Suckcouver win another Presidents’ Trophy and choke in the playoffs again.

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      It is always wrong to cheer for the Nucks. For absolution you must say ten Hail Marion’s.

  • QCBlackhawk

    I know it’s way too soon to even be thinking this, but I kind of don’t even want to win the president’s trophy. That fucker is cursed.

    • Chesterfield King

      some crazy overconfidence up in this thread

      • Z-man19

        Wait til we lose one

      • QCBlackhawk

        Half season man. Our 6-0 is basically 12-0 from a regular season.

        • Accipiter

          Not really.

          • QCBlackhawk

            Not really in what way? If there are half the games to play, the points are twice as valuable, no?

          • laaarmer

            Let’s see 48+48 = 96. So, NO!

          • QCBlackhawk

            Bah, got a buncha friggin sticklers in here. Fine. Points are worth

            1.7083 repeating as much. So our 6-0 is like 10.25-0

          • Accipiter

            The points have the same value. People/media put too much emphasis on it. The only thing that is really different is that there is less rest between games, just a tougher schedule.

          • Z-man19

            True, but you have less margin for error. Lose 5 or 6 in a row and you are probably toast

          • Accipiter

            Every team faces these obstacles, it evens out.

          • Z-man19

            Yes but the percentages are smaller. Minny is a great example, had last year been a 48 game schedule they would’ve made the playoffs and probably won their division. On a percentage basis, 2 points is worth more this year

          • Accipiter

            But it wasn’t a 48 game season and Minny knew that. You shouldn’t even try to compare them. It’s simple, which ever teams win more games (earn more points) in either a 48 game or 82 game schedule will make the playoffs. I understand the argument, but the end result (of what gets you in the playoffs) to me is the same.

          • Z-man19

            In a 48 game season there is less margin for error. Yes, every team has the same issue, but that doesn’t negate the fact that you can’t afford to have a long losing streak or that winning 6 in a row doesn’t mean more than it would in an 82 game schedule. If getting 100 points in a normal season gets you in the playoffs, 12 isn’t as significant as 12 points when 60 gets you in the playoffs. The Hawks can go .500 the rest of the year and still get to 54 points and that’s without getting any loser points.

          • Accipiter

            You just can’t stop comparing them. There is no point.

          • QCBlackhawk

            the same value? You’re saying 6/48ths is the same number as 6/82nds?

          • Accipiter

            2 pts is 2 pts.

        • laaarmer

          The 12-0 will be like 24-0

      • DesertHawk

        6 games does that to a person.

    • chidiver

      We are about to go on a REALLY LOOOONG road trip. Lets not get ahead of ourselves here!

    • ahnfire

      waaaaay too soon.

  • DesertHawk

    Comcast needs to fire that dipshit broadcaster… it’s been almost 2 years since we got an SO. Next time he jinxes that shit he should get the sack.

  • chidiver

    I’ve decided to cheer for the Sha-arks

    /frontrunning

  • chidiver

    Damn. Scum Jr. just tied it.

    • The_FFF

      Balls

    • Accipiter

      4-3 Blues.

      • chidiver

        Fuck, fuck, fuckity fuck.

      • The_FFF

        Double balls

  • ahnfire

    ughhhh I doni’t want the Blues to have a good record. C’mon Minny.

    • Z-man19

      it might be inevitable

      • mightymikeD

        over on HW, abusing Reaves.. it’s fun.

  • chidiver

    Um, Did I just see an ad for a knife called the “stiffie”? Or should I stop drinking?

    • DesertHawk

      That’s really only a question you can answer, we’ll support you no matter what.

    • Accipiter

      I would only stop drinking if you feel like purchasing it.

      • chidiver

        Well, it IS a Bubba Blade, which screams “quality” to me.

        • Accipiter

          You seem to be coherent and thinking logically, do what you must.

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Which question do you want me to answer first?

  • chidiver

    Wow, that’s going to be an interesting review.

    • Accipiter

      I think it was a good goal.

      • chidiver

        Apparently, Toront agrees with you…drink!

        • Accipiter

          I am.

    • CozBullsFan

      I think that’s a good goal. It’s right at cross bar level.

    • The_FFF

      It’s good!!

  • Z-man19

    How can they not figure out how to make the ref’s mic work in this age of technology?

  • Z-man19

    Wow, dude in a hawks sweater behind Minny bench

  • chidiver

    Sha-arks game getting chippy

  • chidiver

    Sha-arks win.

  • chidiver

    100th career win for Nemo!

    • QCBlackhawk

      Appropriate :)

    • chidiver

      I like how the Sha-arks stars each sign a puck and toss it into the crowd. Gotta keep the millionaires on the 100-level happy!

      • Z-man19

        Launching a puck into the 300 level could be an issue, just saying

        • chidiver

          That’d be pretty funny tho. Imagine some poor schmuck standing in the aisle waiting to exit with his back to the ice….

          • Z-man19

            or some poor bastard takes one in the junk

          • Joe Banks

            Use the t-shirt cannon!

          • Accipiter

            Maude Flanders doesn’t like this.

  • CozBullsFan

    That was a stupid move by Parise. Catching a puck like that never ends well.

    • Accipiter

      Unless you try to catch it with your teeth, then you win the SC.

      • ahnfire

        and a Norris.

  • Z-man19

    Fuck

  • ahnfire

    ugh blues win

  • chidiver

    SHIT!

  • The_FFF

    Fuck Scum Jr.

  • CozBullsFan

    dammit

    • chidiver

      Hey Coz! How are things on the island?

      /sighing as he stares at the ice out the window

      • CozBullsFan

        Warm and sunny! Got a bit of rain lately but high season is in full swing. King and queen of Carnival were just named tonight. Funny enough, the queen is an ex. Looking forward to a crazy Carnival week!

  • DesertHawk

    Curiosity what’s the best start in NHL history?

    • Accipiter

      Dunno. I remember the Leafs going 10-0 in the 90′s
      edit: I just checked,
      Longest winning streak to start the season
      Overall: 10 games, by 1993–94 Toronto Maple Leafs and 2006–07 Buffalo Sabres
      Home: 11 games, by 1963–64 Chicago Black Hawks
      Away: 10 games, by 2006–07 Buffalo Sabres

      • DesertHawk

        Where’d you find that at? I couldn’t formulate a good google search in my head. Thanks for the info also.

      • laaarmer

        Didn’t DET win 23 in a row at home?. But not at the start of the season, I get it.

      • Sparky_The_Barbarian

        Neither team hoisted the chalice from the palace.

  • Joe Banks

    It seems to me that Nick Leddy’s balls are much bigger this year.
    The Penalty Kill was heroic. Epic.

    Corey Crawford leads NHL with 5 wins
    6th with .933 sv%
    6th with 1.78 gaa

    And yet tomorrow, some meatball will say that Crawford has only had 2 good games.

    • TheFullAmonte

      So that would mean his average or worse games put him somewhere in the .910 to .915 range? I’ll take it

      • Joe Banks

        Darn Tootin’

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Let’s face it, Crow and Special Teams are why this ‘Vaunted Offensive Team” is still undefeated. Well, those things I just mentioned and a ref with depth perception issues.

  • ahnfire

    oh dear JeHossa this might be THE most terrifying thing I’ve ever seen.
