• unkind

    Oh wow how surprising take bollig out and the fourth line looks like an nhl line and flipping the ice.

    • Brain Sprain

      odd

    • CozBullsFan

      Who would have guessed? If Regin keeps this up, there is no way Q can bench him. Wait, what am I talking about?

      • BrandonPirri

        Oh he won’t bench Regin, until he ices the puck or something and sits for the rest of the game because we need more grit.

    • Joe Banks

      A game 5 miracle!

  • Hawkeytalk

    Puck support with numbers up the ice is the way to do it. Break the neutral zone trap, win the game.

  • CozBullsFan

    VAMOS HAWKS!

  • XMF

    Teuvo.

    I’m on track with the obsessions, right?

    • Brain Sprain

      He’s in Minsk, does he have any points in the World Championship?

      • birdhead

        He got cut from Team Finland before Worlds started.

        • Brain Sprain

          ouch

        • CozBullsFan

          He has played a ton of hockey int he last year. He looked worn out when he was with the Hawks at the end of the season.

    • VanDorp’sMullet

  • YoAdrienne

    SOG in 2nd: Hawks 15, Wild 6. That’s more like it.

    • Bruno_the_Blackhawk_Cat

      Fenwick went from 50-50 to 60-40, too. That is indeed more like it.

    • Hawkeytalk

      More of that and it’s a winner.

  • Joe Banks

    I love you guys! – Let’s make it happen, Cap’n!

  • XMF

    Crosby is the guy who talked and talked and talked in school and then never showed up at the oak tree for the fight.

    Coward little douchebag.

    • VanDorp’sMullet

      That’s about the long and short of it.

    • Brain Sprain

      but damn can he score in the regular season

      • XMF

        So can Kane. And Kane doesn’t cross check skaters in the back while they’re prone. Again and again and again and again for five years.

        • birdhead

          Let’s not compare Kane’s scoring to Crosby’s because that doesn’t end well for Kane.

          • People Lose Fingers Noodling

  • ScottyDubsSD

    Hossa deserves a bunch of credit too.

  • 2883

    Hossa with a big hit on Koivu

  • Face of Boe

    I wouldn’t mind the Hawks scoring 3 or 4 more in the next 10 minutes to make this less panic inducing for us fans

      I would like Hossa to score too. He’s been quiet.

        • Country_Bumpkin

        • Brain Sprain

    #1.) Toews
    #2.) Crawford
    #3.) Regin

    Hossa got robbed.

    • VanDorp’sMullet

      So that means Regin will be benched next game?

      • Brain Sprain

        depends on Shaw

        • CozBullsFan

          No it doesn’t.

          • birdhead

            Shaw in Zus out? Radical.

          • CozBullsFan

            No. Sit one of the following. Kane, Toews, Seabs, Oduya, Leddy, or Hossa.

          • Brain Sprain

            No. they can stay on the team. We need them to let Regin rest between double shifts.

          • CozBullsFan

            Resting between double shifts means he isn’t double shifting.

          • Brain Sprain

            so in order to double shift you have to be on all 4 lines? interesting.

          • CozBullsFan

            No. Double shifting means you stay on ice when your line mates leave. You are essentially part of two lines. Do you even hockey bro?

          • Brain Sprain

            actually i still do. and i think by definition, if you are on say the first and second line, then you would be resting while the 3rd and 4th are on the ice.

          • birdhead

            yeah I don’t really know what Coz is getting at here either.

          • CozBullsFan

            Ok. I’ll clear this up for you. You can’t be on two lines at once. Double shifting means that you are with your normal line, your line mates leave, and you stay on with the next line. It has nothing to do with resting when the 3rd and 4th line go on.

          • birdhead

            yes but then … after the second line leaves … you also leave …

          • CozBullsFan

            Right, but you just played TWO shifts in a row. DOUBLE shifting.

          • Brain Sprain

            i said he needed rest between his double shifts. so if your line goes on the ice, then changes and you stay on the ice, then that line gets off and you with it, you rest before your normal line goes out.

          • CozBullsFan

            Yeah, sorry. I thought you said something else. My bad. Sorry about that.

          • birdhead

            couldn’t you potentially be on the first and third lines? Pretty sure that’s how Kaner did it last year. Play on one line, come off, play on a different line, come off, etc.

          • CozBullsFan

            No. Double shifting means you play two shifts in a row, with two different lines. As in your get no rest after your first shift.

          • birdhead

            yes but you do get rest after your second shift i.e. after your double shift. for a player to get no rest between double shifts would mean that they were playing on all four lines.

          • CozBullsFan

            Ok, I just re-read his comment. I thought he was saying he should get rest the two shifts that comprise his double shift. My bad. Sorry.

          • birdhead

            okay. Kaner played 25 minutes in this game. Was he double-shifting? http://timeonice.com/SC1213.html His shifts aren’t that long, there are just a lot more of them.

          • CozBullsFan

            Your link didn’t work for me. I’ll have to check TOI tomorrow. Have to hit the sack. Work is early tomorrow.

          • birdhead

            ugh TOI is annoying. you’ll need to go here: http://timeonice.com/SC1213.html and enter in the game number 20442.

          • CozBullsFan

            Heh. I’m confused. That’s the link for 2012/2013 Season game against the Ducks. We still had Carcillo, Stalberg, and Fro. Let me see if I can find it.

          • birdhead

            No, that’s the game I meant. Kane played 25 minutes in that game, more than any other skater. The closest forward is Toews on 17:47. If you look at the shiftchart, you can drag around the Toews, Kane, and Bolland bars so the Kane bar is between the Bolland and the Toews bars and you can see that Kane plays about half his shifts with the Bolland line and half his shifts with the Toews line. He doesn’t stay out for a 2 minute shift, but he’s still playing on two lines, and I remember at the time I described that as double-shifting. If you look at the TOI report http://www.nhl.com/scores/htmlreports/20122013/TV020442.HTM , his average shift length is only 47 seconds but he played 32 shifts, while Toews played 23 and Bolland played 16. If it’s not double-shifting, what is it?

          • birdhead

            one of these things is not like the others

            one of these things just doesn’t fit iiiiin

          • CozBullsFan

            But they all suck! RIght????

          • birdhead

            When has anyone around here ever said that Toews sucked?

          • Brain Sprain

            he is in a “German’s bombed Pearl Harbor” mode.

          • CozBullsFan

            No one did. I was just making fun of everyone saying people suck. Seabs sucks about as much as Toews does.

          • wowwowweewoo

            I gotta think Shaw for nordstrom, he didn’t play bad, but he didn’t play good either. Regin though, he’s exactly the banger with speed we’ve needed, and it sets our lineup right so we actually have a 4th. Rolling 4 makes all the difference.

          • Brain Sprain

            I was joking

    • birdhead

      Good for Regin. Hang on to that kid, Q.

      • YoAdrienne

        Yep. It’s amazing what one can do when given a chance.

    • putmeinthemadhouse

      Very nice TOI spread. Me likey.

      • Bruno_the_Blackhawk_Cat

        Handzus was the only forward with more than 19 min of time.* I like when they actually roll 4 lines.
        *19:03, so it’s not like he blew the lid off it either.

    • Bruno_the_Blackhawk_Cat

      Hossa decided to let someone else bask in the light of his hockeyness. If a star keeps Regin in the game, I’m all for it.

    • ballyb11

      Marian Hossa could give a fuck. Every win should have a worker bee as one of the three.

      • Brain Sprain

        I know he doesn’t care about the 3 stars..but he was awesome tonight.

        • ballyb11

          I know.

  • Oldfarthawkfan

    Leddy needs to sit again, he played horrible. Regin was impressive

    • Bob Lanz

      No and yes

    • wowwowweewoo

      I don’t know if it’s now his confidence, but he was terrible. Showed no instinct all game.

  • 2883

    And then she was so nice, lord she was lovey dovey.

    • 1benmenno

      One bourbon one scotch five beers

    • berkley

      Errybody funny

  • 1benmenno

    Kane skates fairly hard. For a lazy fuck.

  • Bob Lanz

    Congrats to everyone we earned this win! Die hard fans keeping the faith! Hahahaha fuck Minnesota! 9 more bitches!

    • birdhead

      I don’t know about you but I ate chocolate and did my job for the duration of the game. I didn’t do a damn thing to earn the win.

      • Why?

        I drank the hell out of a Nespresso latte.

        • Bob Lanz

          You and you joke of a coach

          • Why?

            we do? what dimension is this?

          • Bob Lanz

            You nuckle heads get loopy after wins

          • CozBullsFan

            I thought we were perpetually loopy.

        • 1benmenno

          That cause you’re from Texas

      • Bob Lanz

        Seriously I have to keep explaining sarcasm to you… Wtf birdup man!

        • birdhead

          So you meant that we totally didn’t earn the win?

          • Why?

            I bet he didn’t really laugh, either.

  • Why?

    jesus, nobody fucks with him

  • pepe_silvia

    Fuckin right boys. Now close it out in game 6.

  • putmeinthemadhouse

    zeus was very steady as well.

    His game 4 was a howler, so thats good to see.

  • Why?

    I liked the absence of penalties

  • putmeinthemadhouse

    So toews has how many game winners these playoffs now?

    • People Lose Fingers Noodling

      Tonight makes it 4

      • Why?

        Which is over half. Is it too late to change my Druce to Toews?

        • Why

          Who is your Joe Sakic?

          • 1benmenno

            I picked Hossa to be our Hossa. So I’m golden

    • berkley

      9 in his short career, one more than JR for Hawks all time

  • ballyb11

    The HIT button stat guy musta been on some ADD drug.

    MINN — 48
    BH. — 31

  • HossasPierogi

    Can’t roll 4 lines without Regin. 4th liners were 9 to 11 minutes tonight.

    • wowwowweewoo

      Regin is the missing piece, a center that can drive play, instead of just eating up ice time. I kinda forgot how good he was to close out the season, our 4th is now a checking line again, AND it makes all the difference.

  • birdhead

    Lowest TOI tonight was Nordstrom with 9 minutes. Oh that feels sooooo much better.

    • Bruno_the_Blackhawk_Cat

      I just noticed that Leddy and Brookbank had 17-18 mins. That kept the top 4 D-men time down. So, Q was rolling 3 full D lines as well as the 4 F lines.

      • birdhead

        I feel so so so much better about the Hawks when they look like that.

        • 1benmenno

          Me too. I shouted out at the bar: “Now that’s Blackhawks hockey”

          • DJ

            Yes. And there is no reason whatsoever why they can’t play like that in St. Paul on Tuesday. If we do that, I like our chances.

          • 1benmenno

            Moi aussi

          • birdhead

            well … Yeo has last change.

          • DJ

            Well, yes. But we’ve won playoff games on the road in Detroit, LA, Philly, Boston…none of which where we enjoyed last change. Last change is important but not dispositive.

          • 1benmenno

            Yes. And that has been a factor.

  • Bob Lanz

    Ok Zus was good tonight. Still slow, but not a hider acne at all. So good for him and us. Steeger played well. Would like to morin in place of Nordy just because of his speed and hands but Q needs his defensive binky so unlikely. Rolling 4 is good red wedding line is even better

    • Why?

      how did hider acne get into your spell check?

      • CozBullsFan

        BWAHAHAHAHA

  • Hawkeytalk

    So now the hawks are like a million to three or something in game 5s under Q, right?

  • 60MinutesBaby60

    Regin #3 star? Say huh?! Gotta be Bick.

    Tues ain’t gonna be pretty hockey and I ain’t confident but we got
    Taser and all that guy does is step up again & again & again. It’s our edge
    - maybe the only one – and I’ll take it.

    • Brain Sprain

      the writer (Kuc or Lazarus) doesn’t want Q to scratch him again.

    • Brain Sprain

      Chris Kuc picked them. He mentioned it on twitter after the game.

    • YoAdrienne

      Regin drew the penalty that allowed the PP goal. He did pretty damn good for a guy who came in cold after sitting for 10 games. I think he deserved it.

      • 1benmenno

        I agree. The dude stepped up. Bollig could have done better natch

  • Hawkeytalk

    Konroyd pushing more hits as a key to the game Tuesday. Oy.

    • 1benmenno

      Gone to hits stats everyone. When will they ever learn. When will they ever learn

    • 60MinutesBaby60

      Tonight speed was the diff Tues’ll have to be the same.

    • Grateful

      It was Toews’ hit in the corner on his goal that made the whole play. This us what Konroyd is talking about!

  • 60MinutesBaby60

    Tues the Wild are gonna be like a rabid badger – trapped & desperate.
    Hawks’ big game experience can weather it I trust (and hope,)

    • 1benmenno

      Hawks will be like a rabid Honey Badger.

      • 60MinutesBaby60

        Good answer. Honey badger doesn’t give a …

        • 1benmenno

          Exactly. Neither a shit nor a fuck will they give

  • 1benmenno

    Captain was angry after he scored. After the Blackhawks won. He is not satisfied

    • YoAdrienne
    • 60MinutesBaby60

      Wild have earned their props & I give it to them LARGELY but
      we got JonnyT on our side and that could very well be the diff.

    • Why?

      Cap’n hasn’t contributed this much scoring this early since he’s been a Blackhawk. Aside from last game, he’s been playing pretty close to top Toews level. He’s inspired by something.

      • 1benmenno

        I’ve never seen him this angry. In a controlled way. He’s chewing out refs and teammates and spitting onto the ice from the bench like he just doesn’t have time for this BS

  • 1benmenno

    The Wild played well and were still disruptive with aggressive forechecking. But the Hawks eventually connected on their passes.

    • 60MinutesBaby60

      Beloved MUCH crisper tonight but still no where near where they’re gonna need be they wanna go deeper. Wild giving them ALL they want.

      • 1benmenno

        Yes. Give coach Yeo some props. The Wild are playing smart, somehow combining pressure up front without giving up space in the back end

    • Iaaarmer

      Their passing has been like trying to burn snow

      • 1benmenno

        You’re a funny guy. I’ve seen it done
        You’ve seen it done

        • Iaaarmer

          Only Manitobians can burn snow and they aren’t all that good at it in the first place

          • 1benmenno

            Manitoban Mennos can burn snow like nobody’s business. And Toews is one of us. One of us. One of us. Etc.

  • 60MinutesBaby60

    Hawks need 4th line to commit to insane level of energy – fore check & TOI so other 3 lines can conserve their own nrg levels.

  • 60MinutesBaby60

    BTW hope it’s ok to give the NYR some love for taking it to a game 7 in Pitt.
    They looked like AHL team game 4 but games 5 & 6 like legit SC contenders.
