Blackhawks Confidential

Blackhawks vs. Flames tonight!

hhhhh.jpg

Game 2 of the Cirucs trip tonight, hopefully we see the same effort from the Blackhawks as we did Wednesday.  In their dumping of the Oilers the Blackhawks showcased something we haven't seen since last season, team speed.  Everyone was flying.  Added into that was a compete level that hasn't been there very often this season.  Those two things combined offered a very enjoyable 60 minutes for Blackhakws fans.  Let's hope for more of that against the Flames tonight...

Pat Foley mentioned at least 3 times that Jonathon Toews loves the ice in Edmonton.  His hat trick was further proof of this.  I don't know what creates that pond feel but the United Center crew should be doing some serious investigating.  If the Toews line can dominate the offensive zone like they did Wednesday the Flames are well on their way to being extinguished.   

Another bright spot of late has been the play of Niklas Hjalmarsson.  He's finally looking like he may be somewhat worthy of his 4 million dollar cap hit.  His shot blocking and suffocating defense have been a subtle but very important contribution to the Blackhawks overall strong play of late.  

A win against the lowly Oilers probably shouldn't be taken as having season changing potential but I beg to differ.  I think the Blackhawks we all expected are here now.  Look for Kane to have a monster game tonight as the Hawks improve to 2-0 on this much anticipated road trip.

You're a positive guy, Paul, but this team isn't very good. The Oilers haven't won a game against a team other than the Hawks since October 10. That game meant nothing, as was rather evident against Calgary.

Only one defending champ had failed to make the playoffs over the last 40 years. Looks like the Hawks are on their way to being the second.

I do think we need to get rid of the meme that the Hawks have finally turned the corner, which a lot of bloggers have been using. The blowout of the Oilers was about the third or fouth corner the Hawks supposedly turned.

It just ain't the case. This is a very mediocre hockey team and, after the game against the Flames, can fairly be called a gutless one, too.

Missing the playoffs is a very real possibility.
