Ship the cocksucker back to the Stars.
Get your tee times for Friday.
He's been awful in the playoffs.
this series is over and the dogs are biting
Crawford played great, bad bounce off glass on first goal for Preds. Hawks D looks slow and they don't have a lot guys who want to muck it up and hit people. Toews looks like a shell of his former self.
Yep Hawks are toast. Two 1st round losses in a row, bunch of changes coming next yr.
Blowing a two goal lead in the third period of a critical game three? Yes, those hawks are headed to the morgue.
Have not watched a single Hawk playoff game yet but did watch the condensed highlights from last night's game. Rinne seems to be a major difference but the Hawks also don't look as deep. Not sure about the big changes coming as they do that every summer. When you're stuck with top heavy long term contracts like they have, that's a normal process shuffling the underlings to fit under the cap as experience alone raises a guys contract if he stays. Without watching and being able to dissect the problem from the eyeball test, my first guess is Keith's legs are giving way as he's the motor that propels that ship and how it turns and navigates.
There are a lot of miles on those skates on the Chicago D. The veterans have that defeatist look on their face. I figured this to be a 6-7 game series, don't look like it now. Crawford played great last night but is getting no help.
There will be some interesting decisions this summer in Chicago. They need desperately to get younger at D, not sure of their cap situation (it's probably not good).
But penguins are beating a better team than Nashville and with inferior defensemen
No letang really hurts
Chicago's issues apply to Pittsburgh
Cap issues from paying Crosby/Malkin/letang/fleury etc
Core won multiple cups
Core is 29-30 but with a lot of miles thanks to 3 or more deep playoff runs plus olympics
Yeah well Washington Chicago and Minnesota have playoff experience
Washington may advance but other two are dead
I value current season over experience when you consider there's a lot of changes to the rosters
Joe, better times ahead:
I'm rooting for Edmonton and Toronto to advance with almost no experience
Four matchups like that
Edmonton San Jose
Big achievement if Canada can get more than 1 team into the second round considering how poorly run Canadian franchises are
Anyway I'd certainly rather face Toronto than Columbus
Columbus was a much better team this year
Look for the Hawks to insert Big Stu Grimson into the line up for game 4.
Great video...Glad to see Secord is doing good post hockey.
My old time memory of Hawks playoffs were against Edmonton.Place was going nuts and Ben Wilson put a beating on Cementhead Semenko.Old time
It's not like they really got embarrassed though. 1-0 in game 1 and 3-2 in game 3 doesn't constitute anything to be ashamed of.
For the most part game 2 was close until late. 1st goal by Nashville in game 2 was a joke but that's what happens in hockey.
Yes they did get embarrassed
They have not scored at home this series
"this is our year" "this is the year we finally get it done"
Ovechkin is god. Washington Capitals are due.
If I was a Capitals fan, I would be more embarrassed.
If I was a Washington Capitals fan, I would stick my head in a toilet filled with my own shit.
and you know what, I wouldn't be shocked if Nashville went on to win it all this year.
I preached them for a couple years now and always loved their goalie and defense.
Capitals can still come back
2-1 series and a clear favorite in every game so they're still favored to win the series
As for Chicago I went to their espn page and this was the first video clip
Nashville tanked their seeding
Had they not sat several key players against Winnipeg they'd be looking at home ice against the blues
No venue ever been in as loud as old Chicago Stadium for a Hawks playoff game. I hate going to games at the United Center, it isn't 1/10th as loud as the old place.
My Secord memory is...I was sitting in my seats at the Joe and Secord threw a pass across the ice to the boards in from of me. Denny Savard tipped the pass and it skipped up and in my seats just missing me going so fast if it hit me it would have shattered every tooth in my mouth. But it missed me and hit a kid next to me but one row in front of me right in the head and the amount of blood that came from this kids head was enough to make you sick. I later learned he was ok, but was something I'll never forget.
People can preach Allen all they want but I'm backing Pekka. Pekka isn't losing a 7 game series to Jake Allen this year.
