The Chicago Blackhawks: Just a little bit about a lot of stuff that means little.

The Chicago Blackhawks: Just a little bit about a lot of stuff that means little.
My life has been busy lately. I feel like I am being pulled in a hundred different directions at the same time, but nothing is really that significant. Just a lot of busy work making life seem crazier than it really is. My guess is that Stan Bowman feels much of the same way. The... Read more »

Ponderings, Previews & Premonitions: Game 7 between the Bruins and Canucks.

I really want to hold back from saying who wins. I have a belief in karma and how it came back to haunt Luongo last night, I have a gut feeling and a team I side with more than the other, and then I have the past to look upon. The pattern that has emerged... Read more »

And that is how you change the momentum: The Bruins use home-ice to advance on the Canucks.

The big question going into last night’s game for me, was this: will Luongo continue his past patterns and allow the Bruins to take the momentum? History has a way of repeating itself, and in this case it sure as hell did. I find it interesting that while I watch, or when I reflect on... Read more »

The Bruins prove difficult but beatable in Vancouver.

Preface: I had a hockey game late last night and missed the final 7 minutes of the 3rd period, apparently the most important, from a goals perspective anyway. Boston did exactly what they were not supposed to do and played a lot of special team’s hockey. Magically, they looked fairly decent while on the power-play... Read more »

Canucks win the West: A frustrated Shark's team goes home earlier than anticipated.

It is damn hard to lose a game when you out-shot your opponent by 22 shots, but the San Jose Sharks did just that last night. The Sharks dominated in almost every category last night with the exception of goals and you could also say bounces and those count more. When leading the game by... Read more »

Power Play City: The Canucks find a 3-1 lead in San Jose.

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 »

Your 2010-2011 Chicago Blackhawks.

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.

How About an Applause for Your Chicago Blackhawks! Remember that all good things must come to an end.
Keep that applause going for Corey Crawford (amazing game), keep it going for Johnny Toews, and keep it going for the fans too. Things might not have ended how we wanted, but that was a great run at history. Vancouver can sleep easier now that they have eliminated the Blackhawks in OT of game 7... Read more »

If Hawks win, party at Robson and Thurlow? Hawks-Canucks game six recap.

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 »

A Canuck Fan's Nightmare, the Blackhawks are back!

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 »
