The Pink Elephant: Blackhawks win the series in OT!

The Pink Elephant: Blackhawks win the series in OT!
What am I supposed to say? I can’t quite remember what happened last night, as if some giant object is blocking my view from where I stand. It was as if someone dropped a giant pink elephant on the ice and it took a piss over all that I hold sacred. The single handedly worst,... Read more »

Heart Attack City: Blackhawks 4 - Red Wings 3

Heart Attack City: Blackhawks 4 - Red Wings 3
It wasn’t always pretty, at some points dreadful to watch, but after taking our hearts and souls through a roller coaster ride, the Blackhawks found a way to dig and scrap out a road win. The most important road win up until this point. Sure, the game winning, penalty-shot goal from Frolik might have been... Read more »

Won Game: Blackhawks 4 - Red Wings 1

Won Game: Blackhawks 4 - Red Wings 1
I would really like to know what went on during the optional practice that I am assuming Toews ran yesterday. 12 players made it to that practice as Q had given them the day off. A practice that Q himself was not at. 2 power-play goals, 45-26 shots in favor of the Hawks, Shaw was... Read more »

FAIL

I think that pretty much says it all. Fail. I have to admit, I am pissed. Pissed that a team with so much talent is once again being abused and decisively put in their place by the Red Wings. If Babs has figured anything, he has correctly figured out that if you silence Toews, you... Read more »

Ch,Ch,Ch, Changes. Blackhawks looking for a shift in output.

Ch,Ch,Ch, Changes. Blackhawks looking for a shift in output.
Looking at game 3 in its entirety doesn’t necessarily warrant too many changes. All in all, they played hard with the exception of the 2nd period, and were (whether or not your a Wings fan or not) a call away from a different outcome. But, besides playing hard for the full 60 (surprising that this... Read more »

Falling From Grace: Blackhawks trail the Wings.

Falling From Grace: Blackhawks trail the Wings.
1 bad period, and a couple of bad breaks can hurt. In the 1st period, we saw a response that was fitting. In the 2nd period, we watched the Blackhawks serve this game up on a platter. In the 3rd period, we watched the officials help the Wings cause. One good game will not win... Read more »

Don't bring a knife to a gunfight, Wings 4 - Hawks 1

This write up is pretty simple, the Hawks got outplayed in just about every stat and got out coached. Undoubtedly, the two days off did the Wings a world of good and they were ready for this game. I thought the Hawks started off decent and they got the first goal. But in the second,... Read more »

Foot on Neck: Blackhawks 4 - Wings 1

Foot on Neck: Blackhawks 4 - Wings 1
From the first few minutes into the 2nd, until about the last 5 minutes of the 3rd, the Hawks had to of outshot the Wings somewhere in the ballpark of 24-4. Yeah, it was that lopsided for that long. When the Hawks finally broke through Howard with Oduya’s go-ahead goal, the game took on the... Read more »

Stalberg in the dog house?

Stalberg in the dog house?
Check these 2 links out: Tribune NBC Apparently, Q believes sitting Stalberg is the answer to the Hawks slacking during the Wild series. I hope so very much that this is just a ruse, because if Stalberg actually sits tomorrow night, I give up. Just when I was starting to get behind some of his... Read more »

One More Night: Blackhawks v Wings

One More Night: Blackhawks v Wings
And so it has come to pass that the Red Wings will face the Blackhawks in one final Conference showdown. This couldn’t have happened any different as fate seems to have willed the Wings past the Ducks, eliminating the Hawks best competition in the Conference. So much credit has to go to Detroit for making... Read more »
