          He’s not very good at it.

  • DesertHawk

    That rule is really dumb, because he’s not part of the play… if he’d tried to play the puck we’d have had TMM.

  • Chesterfield King

    Moonpie struggling with basic hockey stuff right now

    • DesertHawk

      So… moonpie being moonpie?

      • Chesterfield King

        Yeah, but it’s still kinda shocking when he can’t even receive passes like a normal hockey player

        • DesertHawk

          He’s a special hockey player.

          • Joe Banks

            Not as special as our sixth d-man last year

          • DesertHawk

            I don’t know about that.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Hey, let’s go play in front of Nemo for a while. He looks lonely.

    • Hi, I’m Bob LeDonne

      I’ll meat you there

    Brookbank. Your team mates are wearing white.

      Be nice, we’re short a D-man

      • Sparky_The_Barbarian

        Brookbank making me miss Fluffy

        • Z-man19

          Lets not go overboard

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Sharpie wins a board battle. More of this

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Crow. Stop trying to pass.

    I was kinda hoping we’d dominate this period

    • Chesterfield King

      well that was silly

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      We should, they are gassed.

  • DesertHawk

    The sharks have a ton of 08-10 Hawks….

  • Z-man19

    WHAT?

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

    Nice shot, Milli Vanilli.

  • Joe Banks

    Bullshit call

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    I don’t like these omens. Cap’n misses a pass with an open net ahead and now Leddy takes a penalty. Fasten your seat belts.

    • Z-man19

      That call is a steaming pile

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

        Niemi helped

    • Joe Banks

      That’s not an Omen

    • http://hesaid.midwestmentality.com/ JeromerInc

      Fuck seat belts. I’m drinking.

  • QCBlackhawk

    Shit, how do you miss that pass/reception Toews!? :o

    • Joe Banks

      It’s called crappy ice.

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

    So Shark hits Hawk 20 feet from puck, no penalty.

    • Joe Banks

      And Leddy checks shark with puck, penalty

  • Z-man19

    That call is shit, thanks Nemo

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Nemo just gave us a 4×4

  • amontesawesome

    Great kill.

  • girlphoenix

    oh shit nemo! lol

    • High and Wide

      deep down I think he misses his red Clown Shoes

  • Joe Banks

    Awesome! Now THAT’s an OMEN!

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

    Oof. Nemo.

  • AMR

    Typically I hate the trapezoid but thank god for it today

  • stacie7

    So what odd rule haven’t we seen tonight?

    • High and Wide

      faceoff violations

      • girlphoenix

        we’ve got that one covered already

        • High and Wide

          this game? i couldn’t watch the 1st but i didn’t see it in the box score earlier

          • girlphoenix

            no i mean this season, weird rule no one knows about

          • girlphoenix

            also, why do i see myself reading the rule book looking for weird new rules we can break?

          • High and Wide

            I Boo Rule Violations That Don’t Even Exist Yet

          • High and Wide

            oh yeah, we’ve definitely had our early season faceoff violation penalty already. can’t remember, what about non-faceoff covering the puck?

        • Z-man19

          He means a delay of game

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Bolly got away with a hook

  • Chesterfield King

    nice play by saad to try to get it to hossa

  • Z-man19

    Duncs is now well loved all over the west coast

    • Chesterfield King

      oh I bet

    • Joe Banks

      In Vancouver, he’s a pull toy.

  • Flavius

    Retro Stals

    • High and Wide

      painfully accurate burn

  • Minorhawk

    If you shoot on a 2 on 1, you better score…Or at least hit the net

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      We remember how to beat Nemo. Get him moving side to side and go high. Stalls needed to pass that puck to Sharpie.

      • stacie7

        Right now would you trust Sharp to score?

        • Sparky_The_Barbarian

          Yes

        • QCBlackhawk

          If a 2 on 1 doesn’t wake him the fuck up, what will? :p

        • Chesterfield King

          I trust him to score, but not do anything else

        • High and Wide

          I was gonna say, tonight is not the night to pass to Sharp.

    • QCBlackhawk

      Reals.

  • Minorhawk

    29 looks better tonight than I’ve seen in a long time

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

      Travis has been showing some hustle for the last several games.

  • Flavius

    My game is not 100% tonight, but…..I haven’t noticed Bolland in an hour and a half

    • Chesterfield King

      I’ve noticed him fucking up

      • Joe Banks

        Sadly, this.

  • Z-man19

    Captain not happy

  • Joe Banks

    Clowe getting tough with Toews…

  • QCBlackhawk

    Apparently one of Toews’ faces is the angry one.

    • Joe Banks

      And you don’t want to see him angry.

  • Minorhawk

    Saad is everywhere!!

    • AMR

      He is going to be a monster

    • High and Wide

      All Saad Everything

  • Chesterfield King

    guys… I know this might be early, but Saad is the second coming of jesus christ

    • Flavius

      it’s early….but he’s a good looking young player

  • Minorhawk

    Why you miss that puck Kaner?

  • ilikeanactivestick

    Hawks thug life what???

    • Joe Banks

      Huh?

      • ilikeanactivestick

        Thought Sharpie got into a fight. My bad.

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

          It was a slap fight

  • Minorhawk

    I’m glad Dunc stepped in for 22, but he cost 18 points on my fantasy team…Thats harsh!

    • Z-man19

      Sacrifices must be made

      • Minorhawk

        Yea that…and Niemi is one of my goalies

        • Accipiter

          You chose poorly. You know who to blame.

    • High and Wide

      I benched him this week in my league–to give you an example of how our scoring works, he would have earned me more than half the points David Clarkson got tonight :(

    • putmeinthemadhouse

      PIM are negative in your league?

  • Z-man19

    Anyone else ready for the Bolly and the Patricks show to end

    • Minorhawk

      Dont give Q any ideas…This may be the longest we’ve had steady lines since he’s been here…Dont fuck up success

      • Z-man19

        If they are having success I’d hate to see failure

        • Minorhawk

          I’m talking team success…You mess with those 2, other changes need to be made…If it ain’t broke, don’t fix

          • Z-man19

            I fix it, it ain’t working

          • High and Wide

            This team is succeeding on the back of special teams, solid goaltending and good D. The second line remains the termite-infested outhouse a few yards back of your dream home.

          • Z-man19

            Well said

      • Chesterfield King

        The second line can’t even charitably be described as mediocre

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

          You remember the 1st 5 games of this season, right?

    • High and Wide

      the advanced possession stats after tonight are Really Going To Be Something (not that they aren’t already)

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Are we afraid to enter the offensive zone?

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    What a win. I will sleep well tonight.

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

    Poor, poor Frolic.

    • Accipiter

      Kaner is just keeping Fro in check. Making sure he knows his role.

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

        Looked like to me that Fro really expected a puck with Kane Sauce for the ENG. I’m all behind blackmagic witholding the point love. Fro has been defensively good, but he still needs to light the lamp on occasion.

        • Accipiter

          I thought Kaner should have got it to Frolik for the ENG, but the pass was somewhat risky.

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

            Maybe. For most people, yes. I just thought it was funny that it appeared to me that Frolik really wanted the point.

          • Accipiter

            Even after it went it he still went to the net with his stick on the ice, “I’m fucking open”.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Good night and God bless.

  • Chesterfield King

    Kruger clearing that shit like it ain’t no thang

  • Minorhawk

    HAWKS WIN…BOO YEA!!!

  • Chesterfield King

    Crawford was excellent… after the first 3 let in… but still.

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

      Its all he needed to be.

    • AMR

      Last year he would have melted down. He has matured a lot

      • Chesterfield King

        I was gonna say… last year either he would have let in 1-2 more or let in those 3 in the third.

      • Z-man19

        I concur

      • CozBullsFan

        Big change from last year. Good job by Crawford on focusing after a tough first period.

  • KingTalkyTiki

    MOAR POINTS!

    • Accipiter

      The most moar points.

      • Z-man19

        Nice having the mostest

    Two points for the Hawks, zero points for the Sharks and Scum Jr. I’ll take it. On to PHX and FUCK RAFFI TORRES.

    • Joe Banks

      THIS.

  • ilikeanactivestick

    We’re number 1! All others are 2 or lower!

    • Accipiter

      We don’t want no scrubs.

      • High and Wide

        A scrub is a guy who can’t get no love from me
        Hangin’ out on the weak side of a bad offside, tryin’ to holla’ at me

  • DesertHawk

    So I’m conflicted… I don’t want us to lose… but I also don’t wanna win the cursed President’s Trophy… hmmm

    • Z-man19

      looooooooong way to go DH

    • Chesterfield King

      overconfidence up in this

      • DesertHawk

        Where’s the overconfidence? if we don’t lose.. we will win the P’s Trophy.

        • Joe Banks

          Enjoy today.

    • AMR

      maybe the hawks can break the curse

      • Chesterfield King

        i remember someone looking at the actual numbers and it isn’t really that cursed. It’s more that in a 7 game series crazy shit happens and any team can catch fire

      • Joe Banks

        If SCUM can do it, we can do it.

    • Accipiter

      There is no curse.

      • High and Wide

        there are COOTIES, though.

        • DesertHawk

          The Canucks have touched it…

    • Joe Banks

      WAY too soon to think about that…

      • DesertHawk

        We’re basically a quarter of the way through the season, no?

        • Z-man19

          Wait til we are in last qtr

          • DesertHawk

            Wait for what though? Like I said, if we don’t lose we will win the Prez’s trophy. So do I hope for us to keep not losing, or do I hope we lose just enough to avoid the curse, as I see it. This wasn’t grandstanding or counting chickens.

          • Z-man19

            Get enough points to make sure you are in the dance then fuck the curse and get the most points

          • DesertHawk

            Good enough for me, I shall set my desires to WIN ALL THE POINTS. Jinxes be damned.

          • Joe Banks

            Just focus on SCUM Jr. in the rear view mirror

  • Joe Banks

    I’ve been looking to this game as a measuring stick. Down 3-1 on the road… never gave up.
    After Kaners goal, Sharks kinda went into hibernation. I like our boys.

    • Accipiter

      Thanks.

    • Chesterfield King

      I’m viewing the F/O numbers as a bit of an outlier, since the Sharks are pretty stacked at center/wingers who could easily play center

      • girlphoenix

        gomez went 10/11. only lost to toews

        • DesertHawk

          Bolly was at 44% it could be worse.

          • Accipiter

            I don’t want to name names, but some guys were at 0%.

          • DesertHawk

            Hossa buffed Bolland at the cost of his own stats, what a good teammate.

        • Chesterfield King

          according to espn, there are 9 players on the sharks who are centers/can play center, which means that even if players get thrown out, couture or marleau or whoever can take F/Os without a dropoff

        • Joe Banks
    • High and Wide

      as strange a game as this was, I knew Bolly’s 67% couldn’t last

  • Joe Banks

    Miss you, Niemi… bye!

    • DesertHawk

      Niemi! Kthxbye!!!

      • mightymikeD

        We keepsies Hjammer, k?

        • Joe Banks

          I was so sure bowman was gonna trade jelly before the season started. So happy.

  • Chesterfield King

    aaaaaannnnnnndddddddddddd my Sharks fan hat is back on. stop shittin’ on my number 2 team you guys

    • DesertHawk

      So long as you do the same Friday morning.

      • Chesterfield King

        Yeah sure

        • DesertHawk

          Also fuck Torres, he is to my Coyote fan-ness, what everyone was afraid Carcillo would be to our Hawk fan-ness.

          • Chesterfield King

            Carcillo has pretty much behaved except for that one hit with the instant Karma

          • DesertHawk

            Yeah, but everyone was terrified he was gonna be a moron, when we found out he was coming. Torres is that moron.

          • Accipiter

            Luigi is pretty dumb, but he ain’t no Torres.

          • Joe Banks

            And Torres is one. ugly. mother. fucker.

          • High and Wide

            one of many frustrating things about Torres, especially for you I’m sure, is that he was actually playing good REAL hockey in that series until he lost his friggin’ mind

          • DesertHawk

            Well in that series I didn’t care… Hawks vs Yotes I always want the Hawks to win. It did make it hard to stomach wanting the Yotes to win the cup though, after we were bounced. If he hadn’t been suspended I don’t think I could have gone to any of the games.

          • High and Wide

            That makes sense. I think most sensible folk find that kind of thing awfully hard to stomach no matter what jersey it’s wearing.

  • Joe Banks

    Let’s get on the record right now. FUCK RAFFI TORRES!

    Hey, I’ll be saying hi to SJ for you guys tomorrow, with a smug ass look on my face. GOOD GAME!

  • mightymikeD

    So, that NM post about the Hawks not beating quality teams.. it’s still true. Yet to take a point off the Conference (&League) Leaders..

  • Toews still makes funny faces!

    Just imagine how many goals Kaner would have right now if he was not so lazy!

    • birdhead

      Imagine how many assists he’d have if Sharpy’d hit a few fewer posts.
