The Blackhawks are winning more than just games.

The Blackhawks are winning more than just games.
Realizing that I forgot my notes, this post will now reflect a basic overview of last night’s game against the Canucks, rather than a detailed review, and will also serve to consider thoughts about the Hawks in the big picture sense. For starters, you have to be happy about the result, or results for that matter... Read more »

Oh man am I tired: The Canucks get the extra point in OT over the Blackhawks.

Oh man am I tired: The Canucks get the extra point in OT over the Blackhawks.
This is going to be really short as I am about to fall over in exhaustion. Long, early day tomorrow for me, so it might be a while till I get to some big, more important points on the game, as there was ample excitement in this one. Not a night to lose. The Preds... Read more »

The Chicago Blackhawks 5, The Canucks 1. Can You Dig It!

The Chicago Blackhawks 5, The Canucks 1. Can You Dig It!
As the saying goes, when it rains – it pours. This seems to be the case whenever these 2 teams get together. Well, it poured all over the Canucks in the 3rd period last night, launching the Hawks to a 5-1 win and a fantastic day at the circus. I honestly hate the circus, too... Read more »

Blackhawks v Canucks, what the heck was that?

Blackhawks v Canucks, what the heck was that?
If you are going to give up 5 Power-play goals and not score any of your own, you are going to lose by a lot no matter what else you do on the ice. Not that it matteres for the Hawks, they didn’t really do anything 5-on-5 either, which added up to a disgusting excuse... Read more »

A Tim Terrific Stanley Cup Final with cheers and tears, rookies and retirements, shutouts and shorties, handshakes and violence.

Well, there you have it folks. The Stanley Cup no longer resides in Chicago and I must say that it was enjoyable watching it find a new home for the year to come. There is a lot to say after this one, so many areas to focus on. Thomas’ performance is a big one, while... 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 Canucks are 2 wins away from taking Lord Stanley's Cup to Vancouver.

With another late win on Saturday night, the Canucks drew within 2 more of making good on their projected confidence. 2 more wins and Vancouver erupts into a tizzy, possibly destroying the whole west coast of Canada and even taking a bit of Washington and Alaska during the celebration. Our good friend Fourfeather probably has... 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 »

Stanley Cup Preview: It has been a long wait for the Bruins and Canucks.

This might just happen to be Vancouver’s year. For all of the talent on their roster, the hockey gods have helped them along with a few breaks to get them where they are. But, it happens to be the year of Tim Thomas, and you can take that to the bank. It is so much... Read more »
