Hatred Justified : Vancouver embarasses themselves, "their" game

Fights break out in the crowd
Looking back on it, the outcome of the game was wholly predictable.  Most Blackhawk fans (myself included), were rooting for the inevitable implosion of hockey’s most classless team, and once again, it happened.  The Boston Bruins won their first Stanley Cup since 1972, and while they were skating with the Cup, Vancouver fans were taking to the streets.   ...

Just when you start to respect the Canucks, they open their mouths

Last night’s Game 7 in Vancouver may have been the best hockey game I’ve ever watched in terms of drama, excitement and stress.  As much as it pains me to admit, the better team won.  The Canucks took it to the Hawks for much of the series, and probably deserved to win.   Over the... Read more »

Blackhawks in great position to advance on mentally weak Canucks

I’m guilty, you’re guilty.  We are all guilty.  We gave up on the Hawks after 3 games, because we thought the players gave up after game 82.  We were wrong, and here we are…game seven in Vancouver.    At this point, how can the Blackhawks lose?  The Vancouver Canucks are everything they’d proven to be...

Injuries, exhaustion a bad recipe for Blackhawks

A few days ago, I told Hawk fans not to panic…well…I guess you were all right. After falling behind three games to none to Vancouver Sunday night, it’s all over but the shouting for the Blackhawks. Barring a miracle, the Hawks will be eliminated in short order. Roberto Luongo and the Canuck celebrate yet another... Read more »

Coaching the difference in Hawks, Canucks rivalry

Let’s face it, the Hawks have dominated the Vancouver Canucks like no other opponent.  In addition to two consecutive Western Conference Semi-Final series wins, the Hawks have taken it to the Canucks in the regular season, often in embarrassing fashion.  Roberto Luongo has been pulled repeatedly, and he’s broken his stick in anger.  Ryan Kesler...

Once again, Hawks outclass brainless Canucks

Before I sat down to host my hockey postgame show on the Score last night, I wrote down three words:  Discipline, Coaching, and Character.  These three things have been the key to the Blackhawks 3-1 series lead over the Vancouver Canucks.  While rampant douchebaggary can be expected from guys like Alexander Burrows, Shane O’Brien, and...

Plenty of blame to go around, but not for Niemi

Once again, the Hawks decided to come out flat in game one of a playoff series, and once again they lost.  Actually, they didn’t just lose.  They embarrassed themselves. The supposedly solid defense looked lost in their own zone.  Dustin Byfuglien was a non factor in front of Robert Luongo, and the “bad blood” must... Read more »

Hawks looking for big ASSist from Byfuglien

When the Blackhawks and Canucks face off for Game 1 of the Western Conference Semifinals Saturday at the United Center, Canucks’ goalie Roberto Luongo will be reunited with an old friend.  Dustin Byfuglien’s ample backside.  After a few months playing defense for the injury depleted Blackhawks, Big Buff is moving back to forward, just in...
