    MOAR NIEMI SEZ YES!

  • DesertHawk

    I didn’t know the bruins were in the same boat as us, to this point.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Smilin Kitch…. Wait…

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

    Does anybody even want Carello to come back?

    • Z-man19

      Depends on who he replaces

      • BigHoss

        kane he hasnt scored yet trade his ass

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

          Toews. Carello woulda bled all over jumbo

  • DesertHawk

    So is peeps here now?

    • Z-man19

      A little sparse

      • QCBlackhawk

        A whee bit.

        • DesertHawk

          I’ve noticed that with the new site… people seem to disappear during the second and third. Much more than i remember around the old digs.

          • QCBlackhawk

            That’s weird :|

          • Z-man19

            I think the stats would prove you correct

          • ahnfire

            I wonder why :(

          • 2883

            a couple of times my internetz went out in the 3rd so I left after the 2nd period thread, also you weren’t there with a link to the 3rd, so I almost left tonight…. I’m lost without you mom.

          • ahnfire

            siiiigh. You need to learn independence.

          • BigHoss

            i dont

  • Daze55

    The ‘When leading after 2′ stat pisses me off

    • DesertHawk

      Why’s that?

      • Daze55

        I feel likes its a jinx. Anaheim, we were a perfect 8-0. Its like saying we might get a shutout and a softy goes in.

    • birdhead

      Me too because it’s just so dumb. “The team leading after 40 minutes is likely to still be leading after 60!” No shit, Sherlock. It’s only really interesting when it’s the other way around.

  • CozBullsFan

    Let’s go Hawks!

  • Z-man19

    So Frogger was out there to take that draw?

  • CornelisonsFlagPointer

    Go Hawks!

  • 2883

    FINISH WITH MOAR HAWKS GOALS

  • Daze55

    It’s cause our 4th line is killer.

    • DesertHawk

      And you’re red now. Huzzah!!!

      • Daze55

        Cheers! In the big leagues now

  • DesertHawk

    Ouch ragging on Gomez… mean foley.

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

      not even subtle about it

      • DesertHawk

        At all… too easy I say.

  • Daze55

    Niemi should just give Sharp a goal…they’re friends.

    • DesertHawk

      Sounds good to me

    • DesertHawk

      Well there goes the chances of an EN for sharpie

  • DesertHawk

    We’re not being as aggressive as I’d like, or we have been to this point. Don’t rest on yer laurels, boys.

  • Z-man19

    HAMMER!!!

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    GOAL Hammer!

  • QCBlackhawk

    WOOT HAMMER

  • AMR

    hammer!??

  • Flavius

    Super Nintendo!

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

    GOAL!!!!!!!!!! HAMMER!

  • 2883

    PINGGGGGGGGGGGGGG and INNNNNNNN HAMMMMMMMMMMERTIME

    • Z-man19

      Sharp is on the bench grinding his teeth

      • 2883

        He can’t touch this…

        • Daze55

          When Brookbank puts it in the net I’ll be concerned.

  • Daze55

    Hjammer! Wicked.

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

    TOFTBO!

  • CozBullsFan

    HAMMER!

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    As Groucho Marks says at the end of Duck Soup, “Trentino, That’s game!”

  • http://twitter.com/oregon_hawk Oregon_hawk

    I love slapshots that go in.

  • Flavius

    Lookin’ like Soupy there, Leddy

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Nemo had given up what, 3 goals in the last four games?

    • DesertHawk

      Really he still loves us.

  • QCBlackhawk

    Jesus Razor!

  • Z-man19

    RAY RAY

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Razor say: NO GOAL FOR YOU!

  • Flavius

    Unreal, Razor

  • AMR

    emery is god right now

  • 2883

    wow, what reflexes

    • AMR

      His hip is fine I would think

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

    wow. Razor is sharp

  • QCBlackhawk

    Love seeing him grinning his ass off through the mask. I have yet another man-crush.

  • Daze55

    I’m glad emery is finally getting some respect

  • BigHoss

    hjammer needs to shoot more

    • AMR

      you mean he needs to hammer it at the net

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

        Hjammer needs to shoot more. Shooter needs to hammer more.

      • BigHoss

        yes, very punny

        • AMR

          I couldn’t resist. I tried but failed

  • Z-man19

    Again, Frogger is out taking draws on Shaw’s line

  • 2883

    Saad reminds me of a young Jonathon Toews, I know that’s a bit lofty of a projection but Saad’s picked up a lot of Toews style of play…

    • AMR

      Not a bad person to emulate

    • BigHoss

      are you sure i see alot of john scott if you ask me

      • 2883

        Nah he gets more ice time than John Scott

    • Z-man19

      Has he made any really bad mistakes? I haven’t seen any

      • AMR

        And he can skate

        • DesertHawk

          And fly.

          • AMR

            A little Bobby Orr homage

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

            I see a lot of Gretzky personally.

  • DesertHawk

    I don’t want shampoo that’s going to make my scalp history…

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

    Well I now know how Darren Pang sounds when he organisms http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MD2cSPghNkE&feature=youtu.be (pretty good save, eh?)

    • DesertHawk

      Doesn’t he organism all the time?

  • QCBlackhawk

    Oh shit, that chart record deal gives me a chubby a little. Even though it’s a bit too soon.

    • DesertHawk

      Only three teams better still. I’d say it’s still chub worthy.

      • QCBlackhawk

        The “results on the right” are what I was thinking about ;)

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Send in the Killer Klowns!

  • BigHoss

    bye bye bur

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

    San Jose doesn’t even seem to be trying right now. Hawks might get two more if the Sharks keep up this effort.

  • Daze55

    Slooooooooopppppyyyyyy

  • DesertHawk

    Ahh these shoes are so comfortable and well worn.

  • Flavius

    So, that’s a power play, eh?

  • ahnfire

    so both times I turned on my WGN app to listen to the game on the way home, the Hawks scored.

    the WGN app is lucky!

  • Face of Boe

    can we just start declining the penalties? I mean, it works in football

    • Z-man19

      It’s looked better tonight IMO

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

        Yeah, the PP hasn’t been nearly as bad as the previous four or five games. Goal and another one that had some good looks/pressure.

      • Face of Boe

        They had two good power plays and a few where they did nothing. I’m happy they scored, I just don’t understand how a group with this much talent can not get anything going

        • Z-man19

          It’s definitely sucked this year, but up 4-1 late in the 3rd, I’m not expecting much

          • Face of Boe

            fair enough

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

          Got a feeling its because they really don’t feel the urgency

  • 2883

    So need an apparel fair or foul: Blackhawks socks… they’re no show socks with indianheads on each side of the toebox. I picked up a pair for a dollar…but would you wear Hawks socks?

  • Eddie_The_Eagle50

    Well, I’ve yet to see any of the hawk dmen walk the puck along the blue line during a power play. Paging coach McClure. We need your help with the power play.

    • http://twitter.com/oregon_hawk Oregon_hawk

      or have the point men switch spots…. or even sort out entry.

    • Country_Bumpkin

      Is it that the coaches are fucking blind or they just believe this will miraculously heal itself?

  • Hi, I’m Bob LeDonne

    LOU MANFREDINI HAS T-REX ARMS

    • Z-man19

      What’s shaking Bob?

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    PK TIme. Brookbank again.

    • Country_Bumpkin

      Brookbank needs to go away….soon.

      • BigHoss

        he sucks

  • mightymikeD

    Pat just definitely called Niemi “Emery”

    • BigHoss

      hes drunk

    • ahnfire

      it’s the 3rd & the Hawks are going to win. I’m surprised Foley isn’t slurring all his words

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

    I just realized this… but team in the East won’t leave the Eastern time zone until the Cup Finals (unless the Red Wings come out of the West). That’s a HUGE advantage for teams in the East.

    • DesertHawk

      Wouldn’t it be a disadvantage for them… as they won’t be used to the travel once the playoffs start?

    • Accipiter

      What aboot Winnipeg ???

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

    Brookbank to get the hook.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Way to fight, Oduya

  • JRF

    Fuck your power play Sha-arks!

  • Daze55

    Our PK is tits

    • BigHoss

      so good?

      • Daze55

        Like being at a strip club with sauced Foley

        • BigHoss

          funny?

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

            Funny like a clown?

        • DesertHawk

          Disappointing under normal lighting conditions?

          • Daze55

            Pitch black, it’s like he’s commentating your experience there.

          • ahnfire

            hahahahaha

          • DesertHawk

            Only been once, wasn’t impressed…

          • 2883

            With Pat Foley commentating drunk?

          • DesertHawk

            That might have improved the experience.

          • Z-man19

            You picked the wrong place

          • DesertHawk

            I didn’t pick, not my scene. It was a bachelor party, and I didn’t wanna be the lame duck. As a guy who loves him some breasteses I saw lots of bad fake ones, or just none at all….

          • Z-man19

            I’m not an expert but I’ve been to 2 pretty solid places

          • DesertHawk

            I’d imagine there are some good ones. The whole concept is just too weird for me.

          • Accipiter

            Yep, it is kinda strange.

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

    Thanks for showing up tonight Sharks! Next week at least try. And good game from the Hawks not fucking around and letting the Sharks hang around.

  • BigHoss

    sharks you lost go home

    • Eddie_The_Eagle50

      Nah, time to goon it up

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

    I like how whenever Leddy is getting pinched he just kicks into another gear and slips through

  • CornelisonsFlagPointer

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

    you’re loser drunk, sha-arks. go home.

  • BigHoss

    lets hear it for emery true success story

    • DesertHawk

      and hear too

      • BigHoss

        i wasnt sure which here to use

        • DesertHawk

          Hear hear, is < that hear… I looked it up one day, cause I wasn't sure.

          • BigHoss

            i actually edited it too

          • DesertHawk

            Well now I look like a crazy… thanks :P

          • Z-man19

            No, he’s still wrong

          • DesertHawk

            Wait, what?

          • Z-man19

            Forgot, I haven’t refreshed in a while, edits don’t show up

          • DesertHawk

            Oh :D

  • Daze55

    Solid win boys

  • QCBlackhawk

    DAGGER!

  • Face of Boe

    Hawks Win!!

  • 2883

    how do you get a misconduct withotu a penalty assessed?

    • Z-man19

      Solid question

    • AMR

      I think D. murray got one too

    • Accipiter

      It’s possible. Ref can make that call depending on the situation. An example would be to prevent things from getting out of hand (especially when the game is out of reach) after some after the whistle stuff they pick players that are in the middle of the scrum and get them out of the game with a 10 min. misconduct.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Woot. How bout a star for Razor?

    • Z-man19

      There you go

      • ahnfire

        can you share the 3 stars? I got an NHLN stream so they moved away quickly.

        • Z-man19

          Crow, captain, Frogger

          • 2883

            Emery 3 Captain 2 Frogger 1

          • Z-man19

            Oops, Ray

          • DesertHawk

            I was like… did they really give it to crow… that’s weird.

          • Z-man19

            Being he didn’t even dress yeah

          • DesertHawk

            My brain was trying to come up with some rationale… for being a good sport and letting Emery play after getting a UBI the 3rd star is Crow!!!

          • DesertHawk

            Crow???

          • Z-man19

            Raycrow

  • CornelisonsFlagPointer

    Yay beep beep

  • ahnfire

    WINNER! :D

  • Daze55

    Rolling 4 lines, love to see it.

  • BigHoss

    DAGAAA

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Some clown shoes, but also much more aggressive.

    • Z-man19

      I agree, looked better overall

  • Flavius

    KRUGS! FROGGER! WOO-HOO!

  • BigHoss

    marcus how’s the crowd?

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

      Greatest Hawk interview in years.

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

        I need more Frogger interviews.

  • Flavius

    Kruger’s like, “No, yeah, please don’t make me speak English in public, I don’t like to”

    • DesertHawk

      awww

  • QCBlackhawk

    Nhl.com headline is “HJAL OF FAMERS” hahahahahahaha

    • DesertHawk

      Nice :D

  • Accipiter

    No pants 11-0-3.

    • Z-man19

      When are you going pants less full time? It obviously works for you

    • Flavius

      LEADERSHIP!

      • Accipiter

        Nah, I didn’t fight anyone.

    • QCBlackhawk

      You realize this means you are not allowed to attend a game in person, right?

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

        Shorts or jorts.

      • 10thMountainFire

        I don’t care much for your ‘rules’.

        • DesertHawk

          He could go in a Utili-kilt, no?

          • 10thMountainFire

            This option is authorized.

          • DesertHawk

            SCH uniform of the day, utilikilt at all hawks games, it’d be easier to find each other.

          • steeg of their own

            I would support this option.

  • mightymikeD

    Spot the Happy Hawks fan.. HINT It’s me.

    • mightymikeD

      and going to bed. goodnight, all

      • Z-man19

        Good night mmd

      • ahnfire

        g’night mmd!

  • BigHoss

    hoss is tired see y’all later

  • Bwana

    Kruger’s best game?

    • Z-man19

      He’s been solid all year

  • DesertHawk

    Longest point streak in a season… 35 games… I said got damn!!

  • Country_Bumpkin

    I will say I am getting a bit itchy regarding the Thornton vs. Toews deal. I could see Thornton cheapshotting Cap’y next game.

    • DesertHawk

      Those who get to see the post game, was anything said about it?

      • Z-man19

        Toews talked bout it, should be some video of it, nothing too surprising in his comments

        • DesertHawk

          nothing along the lines of, well he butt ended me or something like that?

          • QCBlackhawk

            They showed the video of Thornton’s chicken-shit punch to the face last year.

          • Country_Bumpkin

            I would love to see Car-bomb fuck Thornton up. Oops, I’m sure Dan Bernstein would be upset at that remark.

          • DesertHawk

            I don’t want anything of the sort, for the effects on either Carcillo or Thornton.

          • 10thMountainFire

            Well it’s a good thing that, when it comes to hockey, no one on planet earth gives even a tip-fuck what Dan fucking Bernstein thinks or says.

          • DesertHawk

            Good enough, wonder why he waited til this game. Maybe cause the scoring was playing out different?

          • Z-man19

            Might be that Thornton kinda flopped to draw the boarding penalty

          • DesertHawk

            That’s what Hockee Night conjectured, did you just read that too?

          • Z-man19

            No but it’s been said on the post game a few times

          • DesertHawk

            Ahh… the magical thing I never get to see. Center Ice would be so bitching if they got that as well.

          • ahnfire

            twitter helps. Tazer said something about standing up for himself; I still don’t know why though.

          • DesertHawk

            I’ve never gotten comfortable with the twitarghs… guess I’m kinda old fashioned in that sense.

          • Z-man19

            No, just had enough, had to make a stand, basically. My wife decided to take the garbage out at the same time so I didn’t catch all of it

  • TheFullAmonte

    Did Toews get second star because he fought Thornton? Are we turning into STL?

    • Accipiter

      Are you losing any teeth ?

      • TheFullAmonte

        Whew. We’re safe. Fuck Scum Jr

      • 10thMountainFire

        Nice fucking retort. I’m nominating Accipiter for second star of the night for this remark.

  • ahnfire

    via Tracey Myers
    “@TramyersCSN: Toews: “Guess it just comes down to players trying to get under your skin… Figured at some point I had to stand up for myself.” #Blackhawks”

    • DesertHawk

      Danke! Take some boxing lessons or something Captain, so you can rock at this too, if you ever need to do it again (god I hope not).

    • justforkicks

      if the next thing we hear is that he has to sit out from being punched in the head i’m going to be even more annoyed at him then i already am.

  • Z-man19

    Hawks are the 4th team in NHL history to get at least 1 point in their first 14 games. The other 3 all won the chalice

  • DesertHawk

    That 0 in the L column is very nice to look at.

    • ahnfire

      it is! I know it’s not going to last forever, but I like looking at it for now

      • DesertHawk

        Record for a streak is 35… it can last a good percentage of forever :D /super wishful thinking.

  • wowwowweewoo

    Keith may have biffed it when he stood up on the Kennedy goal, but I see Keith and Seabrook gaining confidence. Both were spending a lot of time involved in the play around the net. This team will be brutally dangerous when those two come around. There are still things we’re sure to complain about, but it’s getting harder and harder with each win.

  • DesertHawk

    Allen had an amazing save, against the Flames.

  • Z-man19

    Stars beat nucks 4-3

    • ahnfire

      after the Nucks were leading too. I just learned about the PDO stat today & apparently we’re at a sustainable pace, unlike (for example) the Sharks & Nucks, who are apparently regressing toward the mean.

      I find this very interesting :D

      • DesertHawk

        OOO I wants to learn

        • Z-man19

          It means we aren’t just getting lucky ;)

          • DesertHawk

            Well I gathered that.

          • Z-man19

            If Mother would kindly provide us a link, we could learn more

            I’m planning to do a longer fanpost explaining PDO and its implications for the Hawks future in the next day or two (tonight if I can stay awake long enough).

          • DesertHawk

            Thanks! you should be here more. just saying

          • steeg of their own

            I lurk quite a bit here. SBN is just usually easier on my laptop/mobile than whatever fuckery Disqus is up to at any given time.

          • DesertHawk

            I believe that would be ALL the fuckery… GP has the same problem sadly. :(

          • Z-man19

            Thanks, so basically the Hawks haven’t been playing out of their ass to get their record and aren’t due to regress.

          • ahnfire

            yes, apparently you want to be close to 1000. the Nucks are at like 1086 or something.

            Yesterday, a NMer made a comment to me about the Hawks “regressing to the mean” and I thought of the PDO stat. heheheh if the PDO stat is true, then we’re not the team that’s regressing.
