We are all well aware of the importance of scoring on the power-play; we watched the Hawks all year. There was even an added sense of importance to the 5 on 3, thanks much in part to coach Q’s comments about not winning games when those opportunities go without production. Well, incase you missed today’s... Read more »
The Bruins and Bolts make for an interesting game 2, while the Nucks make a statement against the Sharks.
Playoffs! Round 2 in the conference final games has left much to ponder. The Bruins fought hard to even their series, while the Sharks sat down and allowed the Vancouver powerhouse to take full command of theirs. I have found the Boston – Tampa games to hold more value as a hockey fan, unless you... Read more »
Everyone was expecting the Wings to come out strong tonight, but I sure as hell didn’t expect this lopsided of a match. Niemi was forced to make 43 saves on the night and almost kept the Wings to goose eggs until late in the 3rd. On the flip side of the rink, Howard only needed... Read more »
Im falling a bit behind on the 2nd round of the playoffs. Already the Nucks and Preds have played 2 games, and the 2nd Detroit – SJ game is about to take off in a few hours. There has been some great hockey already and I might be a bit tardy with this, but here... Read more »
Jonathan Toews was nominated for the Selke Trophy. This announcement comes hours after the Hawk’s 2010-2011 season came to an end. It reminds me of what was lost and gained this challenging year, of the ups and downs, the dominating moments and then those games when the Hawks seemed uninterested in winning. Through it all,...

How About an Applause for Your Chicago Blackhawks! Remember that all good things must come to an end.
Well, like my tortured analogy yesterday, this team is not dying easy. Three times Vancouver took the lead, three times the Hawks tied it and then came back to win in overtime. Could this have been scripted any more bizarre if someone tried? I don’t know. But, let’s hit it. For perhaps the first time... Read more »
Dragline to Luke; “Stay down, You’re beat” Luke to Dragline as he struggles to get up: “You’re gonna hafta kill me” Well, after a season of “fail-ure to commun-cate”, amongst other problems, our team has continued to show quite a bit of a Cool Hand Luke attitude as they sit on the brink of elimination....

From where I see it, this is the Hawk’s series. The Canucks have dominated for 1 period, and controlled about 2 more periods, while the Hawks have dominated for 6 periods (not all coming from the last 2 games), and have controlled another 3 to 4 periods out of 15 total. The remaining periods fall... Read more »
It does not get much better than this. A 3-0 series gets turned into a 3-2 series seemingly overnight and our home team has stolen momentum on the way back home to live another day. Screw living, this team is now thriving. Crawford was brilliant, actually perfect, Hossa scored Twice (finally learning to lift the... Read more »
