The Chicago Blackhawks add to the list of blow-outs this season.

The Chicago Blackhawks add to the list of blow-outs this season.
Let us keep this wrap simple, since that is how the Hawks play was sold to use coming into the first game at home in a while. If you have seen my comment in the last post by Vegas, I mentioned that the Hawks were lucky to be sitting at the top of the standings.... Read more »

Two Days Til Good Food

Well, not for the Hawks but for me. On Thursday I will hang up the shorts for a few days and head back to Chicago for a lot of eating and my first game at the UC since leaving in May of 10. But, most of you reading undoubtedly are not interested in my travel... Read more »

Net Presence Nets win

Well, it appears the last circus clown popped out of the car in Anaheim. Believe it or not, I really have nothing to bitch about in this game at all. Since both teams blew a wide open chances to score an empty net goal, the final score is a pretty fair indicator of what took... Read more »

The Chicago Blackhawks get crazy on Black Friday.

The Chicago Blackhawks get crazy on Black Friday.
Maybe it had something to do with the gluttonous state of the weekend, to¬†eat too much, and buy more stuff you don’t need. Did you know stores opened at Midnight last night for shoppers to get in even earlier than usual (what is wrong with the world)? Well, the Hawks joined in on the crazy... Read more »

The Chicago Blackhawks get blanked in the tank.
I really love how every time someone is playing against Niemi you hear all about how easy it is to beat him. All you have to do is this, or this, or that. Well, not even his old team had any answers last night as Niemi was the sole reason for the Hawks being defeated.... Read more »

What's reality?

Well, after two embarrassing games, we’ve seen plenty of commentary. On a pie chart of bitterness, optimism, pessimism and objectivity, I think bitterness is far and away the biggest slice. Clearly, a lot of people are pissed off about the way the team has played and a lot of things being said are what I... Read more »

Sky Fail

Sky Fail
In less then one minute, Hemski had picked Stalberg’s pocket at center ice, took it up the boards past Montador, and netted the Oilers first goal. And he made it look pretty easy. Usually, I go through each goal, but with a final score of 9-2, why bother? More or less, it was a disaster... Read more »

The Chicago Blackhawks get Burned in Calgary 5-2.

The Chicago Blackhawks get Burned in Calgary 5-2.
Despite out-shooting the Flames 32-26, winning the majority of face-offs, controlling the majority of puck possession (especially early), and all of this against a team with scoring issues, the Hawks were still spanked 5-2. What can only be compared to as being taken to school, as in, Duncan Keith was taken to school by Stempniak... Read more »

Busy weekend

The Hawks are off to Cal-Gary tonight and then on to Edmonton on Saturday to finish up the Canada leg of this trip. Just a week ago, the Hawks beat the Flames at the UC 4-1 and then after a day off took care of the Oilers 6-3. With the streak of wins now at... Read more »
