  • Red Black and Copper

    Let’s Go Hawks!!!

  • mightymikeD

    Increase Victory Position Of Heroic People’s Hawk! Maximise Production Of Joy In Line With Adequate Progress! Plentiful Despair To Imperialist Running Dogs!

    • Z-man19

      You got me, WTF is that

    • chidiver

      You’ve spent way too much time in the EU!

  • 4FeatherFanatic

    More Hawks goals!!!

  • 10thMountainFire

    If I ever have a child, I’m naming him Marian Hossa.

    • Chesterfield King

      Marian is a nice name for a boy or a girl

      • mightymikeD

        worked for John Wayne

      • 10thMountainFire

        Then if I have a girl, her name will be Marian Hossa as well.

        • Chesterfield King

          ok that’s less nice but still cool

          • 10thMountainFire

            And my dog will be named ‘Panda’.

          • Chesterfield King

            ok that’s pretty sweet

          • The Doctor

            And my panda will be named “Dog.”

          • Accipiter

            The bounty hunter ??

          • DesertHawk

            My dad’s Saint Bernard is named Tazer. I have a cat named Hammer.

  • Woods

    LET’S GO HAWKS!!!!!

  • The Doctor

    Man am I glad we have Keith. I don’t blame Crow for the first two goals but Keith just saved his ass big time.

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Crow should have stopped the first one, but if that’s the softest goal he lets in all year, I’ll be happy.

  • putmeinthemadhouse

    Redden is playing tonight in STL. Paired with pietrangelo…mildly interesting

  • Chesterfield King

    gross it’s kitchen

    • flavius

      Love the Kitch

      • DesertHawk

        Eat the Kitch?

        • flavius

          Gross

          • DesertHawk

            I was trying to make an Aerosmith reference… :fails:

    kitchen looks just thrilllllled to be giving this interview

  • 2883

    Mmmmmmmmmmm chicken wings

  • 10thMountainFire

    Toews and Hoss seem due. Both have had a number of chances.

  • pierzynskirules

    all i want is hawks goals and to win!

    • 10thMountainFire

      I brought you that. You’ll have it after this period.

  • CozBullsFan

    Let’s go Hawks!

  • Woods

    So why don’t the Hawks forecheck more?

    • 10thMountainFire

      I’ve seen Saad doing quite a bit of that.

  • DesertHawk

    Hammer should’ve taken the shot there. Nice move otherwise.

  • Woods

    uuuuugh

  • QCBlackhawk

    Man why are their forwards always leaving us in the dust? I thought we were the ones with legs.

  • 10thMountainFire

    So instead of shooting into shin pads 10 feet away, Keith is just taking the shot with Jagr a foot in front of him?

  • Woods

    This is what I like from stals/bickell

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Super Crow

  • DesertHawk

    Clear the PUCK!!!!!!!

    • flavius

      This is frequently a good idea

  • pierzynskirules

    oy

  • Woods

    this game is annoying

  • Woods

    and fuck these refs

    • Woods

      or not, i guess

      • DesertHawk

        Unless you’re a Dallas plant…. :suspicious glance:

  • 4FeatherFanatic

    Big save for Crawford

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

    Come on Daly, I’ll be looking for you

  • Guest

    And now for something completely different, Clownshoes.

    • Woods

      NOT THIS TIME – OPEN HIM UP!!!

  • 10thMountainFire

    Pat Foley is now finished with his bottle of Jamesons. Jesus, Pat.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Hull jersey on, let’s do this.

  • reach42

    Saad seems to be bringing 19-81 down this game :(

    • 4FeatherFanatic

      I didn’t think so. Saad has looked decent so far.

      • reach42

        I’m really hoping to be proven wrong, but it feels like he’s out of sync with them. Granted, his giveaway numbers have gotta look Tons better than Shaw’s tonight.

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

      Lehtonen’s the one bringing them down

      • DesertHawk

        We should trade that guy!!! He’s practically playing for the other team.

        • 10thMountainFire

          I see what you did there.

    • 10thMountainFire

      What in the fuck are you talking about? That’s ridiculous. Saad has been playing very well.

      • Z-man19

        I concur

        • Chesterfield King

          I love him soooo much

      • reach42

        otoh, i’m really liking Stalberg on the power-play. having a forward who’s actually willing to carry the puck into the zone is Great.

        • 10thMountainFire

          Actually, Stals hasn’t looked great on the power play tonight. But he hustled out his last give-away so he hasn’t been all for naught.

          • DesertHawk

            Well you’re just argumentative tonight aren’t you :P

  • Chesterfield King

    What did I miss?

  • Woods

    Wow, just can’t solve Lehtonen at all huh?

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

      That’s unfair to Lehtonen. He’s been awesome.

  • flavius

    I’m not liking Shaw on the power play so much….but I’ll give it time

    • 10thMountainFire

      Like, 50 more seconds of time?

  • pierzynskirules

    blah

  • Woods

    HEY: FUCK YOU LEHTONEN.

  • Woods

    ugh.

  • Woods

    UGH UGH UGH.

  • Chesterfield King

    Rally Bagel two is a go. Even more butter

  • Woods

    goddamnit.

  • 10thMountainFire

    Well that was pointless.

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

      literally

  • Woods

    GODDAMNIT.

    • QCBlackhawk

      The fuck are you freaking out about? Is my stream 40 years behind?

      • Z-man19

        No

  • Woods

    FUCK THIS

  • pierzynskirules

    omg

  • 4FeatherFanatic

    Damnit

  • Woods

    and fuck lehtonen

    • 4FeatherFanatic

      So much this

  • 2883

    make up call, total make up call

    • 10thMountainFire

      Not nearly as good as make-up sex, but on the other hand… this is Texas.

      • Accipiter

        They were all in love with dying they were doing it in Texas.

      • pierzynskirules

        you are silly….

    • chidiver

      At some point a 5 PP diff was not going to last. Shorty!?

      • Z-man19

        I’m in

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Okay, I’m calling a shorty right now.

  • flavius

    Holy Shit…..that Lehtonen is just an unfair advantage sometimes

    • Woods

      Why does it always seem to be against the Hawks????? :(

      • 10thMountainFire

        The Sox tend to make the Royals’ starting five look like Cy Young winners, too. Might be something in the water.

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

        It’s because I’m a Hawks fan. I’m sorry, everyone.

        • Woods

          That’s ok

  • Woods

    How about one of those vintage 2010 shortie goals?

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Icing on a PP. Shame, Dallas

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Rat v 4

    • 10thMountainFire

      Haha it’s funny to watch.

  • DesertHawk

    Go Bolly!

  • 10thMountainFire

    Was that Kopecky?

    • QCBlackhawk

      Did he fall, lose his helmet, and/or whiff a shot?

      • 10thMountainFire

        Fell.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    another kill

  • Chesterfield King

    Report: Bagel mighty tasty.

    • 10thMountainFire

      I want a bagel. With cream cheese, please.

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      I’m calling the ASPCA

      Oh, you said Bagel, not Beagle.

      • Chesterfield King

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

    That was a stupid penalty… and I’ll take it.

  • 10thMountainFire

    The Stars’ forwards are trying to give us this game. Lehtonan must want to hurt them.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Okay, let’s do this.

  • Woods

    HAWKS GOAL PLEASE

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

    A POWER PLAY SHOULD BE GOOD NEWS. IT SHOULD NOT BE RECEIVED AS “MEH.”
    So lets change that.

  • DesertHawk

    Way to hustle Leddy

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

  • 10thMountainFire

    Crow… money at crunch time this season.

    • flavius

      Jinxy jinxing jinx, I negate you!

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Haven’t we all changed our tune from “Luongo wouldn’t look bad in an Indianhead?”

      • 10thMountainFire

        I still think pre-CBA that Luongo would have been a good addition. The fact remains that Crow looks great and if he sustains that throughout the season, we’re set up strong given our blue line and forwards’ hot starts.

  • QCBlackhawk

    “He’s still got it” girl still has it.

    • 10thMountainFire

      I thought she was attractive as well.

  • Accipiter

    Keep up the good play Hawks !!!!

  • Woods

    LET’S GO HAWKS!!!!!!

  • 10thMountainFire

    Uh-oh… looking like the Hawks are gaining steam.

    • Accipiter

      Isn’t steam good ?

      • ahnfire

        but how will we lose if the Hawks start to play better??

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

          Shhh, they might hear you.

          • ahnfire

            what happens then? I’ve never been here’d.

          • Accipiter

            We gain enough steam to get ALL THE POINTS !!

          • DesertHawk

            Well no wonder we’re not doing well, why’re the Hawks here in the middle of a game?

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Settle down, Shaw, you are not the Panda.

  • Z-man19

    That’s our three wishes fulfilled. Thank you, Hockey Genie.

        No.

      • justforkicks

        we haven’t done in since like the 70s either, right?

    Hossa jersey: 4-0-0

    • justforkicks

      you must always wear it during the games and never wash it just in case

      • Chesterfield King

        Bolly Jersey; 4/4
        Rally Bagel; 1/1

        • justforkicks

          you must also always eat a rally bagel and wear and not wash a bolly jersey

          • chidiver

            Or wear the rally bagel and eat the bolly jersey if things get desperate.

          • justforkicks

            yes, needs must!

        • Z-man19

          Bagel? Bagels

    • 10thMountainFire

      Don’t you dare wash that sweater.

    • Accipiter

      No pants 4-0-0.

      • Chesterfield King

        nice

      • 10thMountainFire

        This.

      • justforkicks

        never wear pants again

    • CozBullsFan

      Blackhawks t-shirt 4-0-0. Pride and joy considering I live in Mexico. Wish I could get a jersey! :/

      • justforkicks

        that is awesome! keep on wearing it!

  • 10thMountainFire

    Ok, we’re fucking thieves. We stole this like we were committing a bank heist.

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Grand larceny. Book em Danno.

    • Woods

      It was an ugly and long heist, but the escape was a thing of beauty

    • Chesterfield King

      But if we lost, I’d argue that Lehtonen stole this one from us

    • flavius

      And I don’t feel a bit guilty

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

      I don’t know about that… Hawks dominated play. Corsi numbers would probably be insane, Lehtonen was awesome and that’s why it was close.

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

      I dunno. The writing was on the wall. Lehtonen started getting cocky and that’s when the goals happened. Did the Stars learn nothing from Star Wars?

      • The Doctor

        Lol…this is my favorite post tonight.

      • Accipiter

        Well done. Upboat for you.

      • Joe Banks

        I noticed that too… and I also thought he would pay for it.

    • mightymikeD

      by outshooting them 2-1? Take Lehtonen away and that was over after the first period

      • http://www.thecommittedindian.com/ PowrFwd37

        I didn’t realize that you could fit a mask with skates, but he definitely appeared to be standing on his damned head all fucking night.

        • mightymikeD

          yup. He was scary good.

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

        Exactly. It was either going to be an anomalous night or the law of averages was going to catch up to the Stars.

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

    I don’t know about you guys, but whenever Kaner has the puck, a joyful calm envelopes me.

  • http://www.thecommittedindian.com/ PowrFwd37

    Just had to stop by and say

    BLACK FUCKING MAGIC TO BIG HOSS AND THREE FUCKING PPGS FTW!!!!

    I LOVE this team. Holy fuck!!!!!

    Also: Fuck Kari Lehtonen

  • 10thMountainFire

    These are the kind of wins that happen to… championship teams.

    • http://www.thecommittedindian.com/ PowrFwd37

      Dude… It isn’t just me that feels like they look like they’re just out there and having fun, then?

      They’ve got that look to them. Calm, cool, collected… “Okay, time to impose our will and win this thing… come on..”

      • 10thMountainFire

        Like their talent is just… on display.

      • mightymikeD

        yeah.. I get that. You’ll notice that the two PPs where they took their time and worked it properly they scored.. (first one doesn’t really count..)

        • Accipiter

          Dress shoes ?

          • Joe Banks

            The PP is totally dress shoes.

  • justforkicks

    all the heart attacks, seriously

  • JRF

    Loved this game! It looked like Lehtonen was gonna steal it for a while, but Patrick Kane and Marian Hossa! Damn! I feel like a Hawks goal is coming soon any time Kane touches the puck this year!

  • Accipiter

    I loves me some OT Hossa.

    • http://www.thecommittedindian.com/ PowrFwd37

      88 and 81 should be on the ice for every single second of OT that this team ever plays.

      • justforkicks

        yes. i feel like in large moments we need 19-88 and 88-81. magic will happen no matter what

    • 10thMountainFire

      He is the best all-around player I have seen in at least a decade.

      • Accipiter

        There are a few good ones, but he is my favourite. He is Marian Hossa and we are not.

        • 10thMountainFire

          I’m burying you!

          • Accipiter

            You don’t have to talk like that. You can just say it’s nice.

    Looked like 2010 hawks. If we stay healthy this year… Look out.

  • chidiver

    Luv me some BLACK MAGIC!

  • The Doctor

    Wasn’t really impressed with Saad this game. I felt like he did an adequate job in the three games prior considering his lack of NHL experience but he just brought the top line down tonight. Oh well. If that’s the worst we see of him this season I won’t complain. Still have really high hopes for him.

    • JRF

      I think he’s about where Stalberg was a couple years ago. Physically NHL ready, but his head and hands are still catching up.

      • The Doctor

        I think his hands are great for where he is. Maybe even comparable to Stals now. His decision making is questionable however. That and he isn’t as big as Stals. But I feel like he has a brighter future than Stals does (he is seven years younger…he’ll be great with some experience under his belt).

        • Chesterfield King

          Were there any points where Saad’s decision making were really questionable? I thought he was making incredibly mature plays tonight, clearing the puck, forechecking well, making outlet and breakout passes

          • 10thMountainFire

            …and again, an upboat for you.

        • JRF

          Agreed. I’m comparing 25 year old Stalberg to a 20 year old Saad. I guess the comparison just stuck in my head because he totally missed the net on a couple of good set ups in the STL game, but looked good otherwise.

    • 10thMountainFire

      That’s ridiculous. Saad was the best forechecker on the ice wearing white and he had multiple chances stymied by a hot netminder. Saad was very good.

      • Accipiter

        I concur.

      • The Doctor

        Agreed. But he also had a few glaring turnovers and ruined a few potential plays. Don’t get me wrong. I love me some Saad, but tonight wasn’t his best game.

    • Chesterfield King

      I think his passing and hockey IQ are amazing considering his age. I’ve been really impressed with him so far; he isn’t doing anything flashy, but he’s doing the little things that aren’t highlighted– clearing the zone, breakout passes– while still generating solid chances. The longer he gets with Hossa-Toews, the better adjusted he’ll get

      • 10thMountainFire

        All salient points. Upboated.

  • chidiver

    Rally scotch has taken its toll. Goodnight!

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Now to try to wind down and get to sleep. See you all Saturday.

  • pompoon

    Well I finally saw the OT goal. What kind of sonar pass was that?!?

    • CozBullsFan

      Kane has no use for sonar. He wields something far more powerful. There is no known match for his Black Magic.

      • pompoon

        Every now and then it seems like he just wills the puck somewheres.

        • pompoon

          Also slightly unrelated but that’s now the 2nd possible Hockey Hugs for Kane.

          • justforkicks

            indeed it is!! i want to see the new hockey hugs edition plastered with all the hawks hugs.

  • justforkicks

    TOI tonight from nhl.com. Keith creeped up again but not too bad i guess

    • Chesterfield King

      Keith was amazing tonight

      • justforkicks

        that goal he saved? i about died a gazillion times

        • Accipiter

          From all the heart attacks ?

          • justforkicks

            yes

        • 10thMountainFire

          The play right before Keith’s stick-save was Hossa sneaking in on the trailer and breaking up a sure tap-on on the short side. That little stuff… makes me love Marian Hossa in ways that are still illegal in many southern states.

      • Accipiter

        He was good for me too.

        • Chesterfield King

          you just don’t know when to quit, buddy

          • Accipiter

            I’m not your buddeh, guy

          • Chesterfield King

            I’m not your guy, pal

        • 10thMountainFire

          That is some funny shit right there.

      • 10thMountainFire

        The only play I took issue with was his slapshot into the pads of Jagr a foot away that resulted in a near-breakaway. Other than that, Teeth was money.

        • Chesterfield King

          He was flying all over the place.

          • 10thMountainFire

            He looks- dare I say- like ‘old Keith’.

        • JRF

          He did stop the breakaway on that though.

        • mightymikeD

          you’ll notice you didn’t see much of Jagr all night. keith stuck him in his pocket and kept him there

          • 10thMountainFire

            I thought the entire blue line looked solid. Leddy, Hammer, and Seabs each had a big give-away but oddly enough each recovered to actually break up the subsequent Stars effort. Just great play. Oduya again looked solid.

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Fourth line didn’t see much time in the 3rd, but that’s to be expected when you are clawing your way back to steal two points.

      • 10thMountainFire

        I noticed that, too. I was wondering where the hell they were for about 15 minutes.

        • Z-man19

          Interesting TOI for the D tonight. Hammer, Oduya and Rosz all under 17 min. Rosz not a surprise. I guess all the PP time might explain most of that

          • 10thMountainFire

            Rosz looked good. The role open since Sopel left… the lingering, shot-blocking sometimes d-man may be filled.

          • Z-man19

            He’s better than what we’ve had. I was just a little surprised Hammer and Oduya didn’t have more TOI, but the PP time probably explains most of that.

  • Lobster

    Duchene with some sweet speed there.

  • Chesterfield King

    Lehtonen has got to be pretty pissed that his team tossed out a golden performance like that

    • 10thMountainFire

      He plays for the Dallas Stars. I assure you he is used to it by now.

  • justforkicks

    woops, accidentally posted this in the 2nd period thread:

    VID OF OT GOAL IS UP

    • pompoon

      I think I’ve watched that like 6 times now

      • justforkicks

        me too. what gets me is. hossa skates in and just stops. and then kaner passes behind is back right to his stick. like fucking magic.

        • Accipiter

          Black Magic.

        • pompoon

          It looks like slow motion. And the leaping hug really sells it at the end.

          • justforkicks

            seriously. hah, the leaping hugs are the greatest. i want a leaping hug with every hawk. actually i want kane jumping into bolland’s arms. i would die laughing.

          • 10thMountainFire

            …because Bollie would move and just let him fall.

            For ‘leaps’, though, no one beats Sharpie on Niemi after Kaner’s goal. The vertical on that is sick!

          • pompoon

            I’m wondering what’ll happen if he jumps into Kruger’s arms…

          • justforkicks

            oh that poor kid

          • Joe Banks

            sure does

        • 10thMountainFire

          BLACK magic.

  • justforkicks

    And only hawks without a point are: Mayers, Shaw, Saad, Brookbank, and Bollig. Leaders in points are: Kaner 7 (2G, 5A), Hossa (5G, 1A) and Sharp 6 (2G, 4A), and Toews (2G, 2A) and Leddy 4 (4A)

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Saad will get one soon. Same for Shaw.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Hmm. I called Tuesday’s game a Goalie win. This one has to be a special teams win. Who saw this coming?

  • Preacher

    Sure the Hawks have looked good so far. But the real test is yet to come: Can they beat Edmonton?
    (sarcasm)

    • Chesterfield King

      don’t even fucking joke I’m terrified
