Tomorrow night! It all begins again!
If the Canucks make it to the playoffs I will be happy and if they make it past the 1st round I will personally lead the parade.
Every time the Blackhawks lose it makes me happy. Hopefully half the roster goes down to injury before the playoffs and they get run over by the Wild or the Coyotes. Oh that would be so glorious.
Have you been a Blackhawks fan before or after 2010?
Oh I feel the pain from that 2011 run all too well. It's not as bad it was but it still stings.
The Canucks will do better than last year. There's nowhere to go but up.
Since Altitude couldn't get their shit together to at least audio stream preseason games I have missed out on the Avs march to the beginning of the season but apparently we have been stinking up the joint. Hopefully the switch will flip tonight.
Shit. Now to choose between resurgent gaming interests and hockey.
Carolina Hurricanes are 0-2 and play an even shittier Buffalo Sabres on national TV tonight. Three of our star players Eric Staal Jordan Staal and Jeff Skinner are injured and won't be playing. We probably still won't win either.
Looks like it will be AHL night in the NHL.
Last game saw the Coyotes allowing a goal within the first four shots, and our coach was caught on camera letting out a nice, dejected "fuck ME"... and yet, we still won.
Tonight, we lost to St. Louis 6-1. I know the Blues are pretty stacked with talent, but come the fuck on. Looks like we'll be rotating goalies, just like last season. I hate having talent at the ready, just to punish Mike Smith for having a bad night (which is all too frequent).
Nashville Predators are afraid of Blackhawks fans. Shame they are so bush league because they have a very good team. Not much of a fan base but I doubt many in Nashville played hockey growing up.
The Predators went to great lengths to shun Blackhawks fans, as the franchise had another campaign to keep Chicago’s red shirts out of the arena. Thursday’s game was included in all season-ticket packages that were sold, season-ticket holders could buy extra tickets before the general public and an exchange was set up in which any Blackhawks red shirt could be turned in for a Predators shirt, according to Yahoo Sports.
Plus, free popcorn was reportedly offered to those in gold.
The promotions “didn’t work,” said Jay Zawaski, the Spiegel and Mannelly producer who was in attendance last night. Zawaski estimated at least 40 percent and perhaps more of the fans were Blackhawks supporters.
Guess who was voted into the All Star game? They do it a bit odd as they do a top 6-G, 2 Def, 3 Forwards. It's 5 Blackhawks and 1 Sabre. Kane, Toews, Keith, Seabrook, and Crawford. Chicago representing big!
Dustin Byfuglien should be suspended for at least the first round of the playoffs.
Been a bummer without Kane but I am confident the Hawks are good enough to win a series or 2 without him. They picked up their defense without him and he'll be the huge boost the need when he's healthy.
So nice seeing the Kings in 9th. hope they stay there.
The end of the Hawks/Sabres game was bonkers. Toews scores 2 goals in less than a minute, in the last 2 minutes, of the game. Now 2 with the Blues for probable home ice and possibly first place in the division. 1 point away from Nashville.
The league with the most exciting playoffs returns. I wish it was 1v8/4v5 match ups. This way the Hawks could dispatch the Canucks in the 1st.
