Hawks O is cranking so far this season. Helluva offensive game last night. Kaner was on fire and Toews is looking like 2010-13 Toews so far.

The goal keeping :frustrated: Cam Ward better get his head out of his azz. He is not totally to blame but some of the shit he has let get by :sick:

Now Saad has to wake up a little and the Hawks could have something here.

Come on CROW!!!

I'm loving the resurgence of play from the captain, and the proficiency of the 'Hawks to get pucks on net and be in FRONT of the damn net for those cleanup goals; something they've almost entirely forgotten how to do the last couple years.

I don't trust Ward, and I don't trust Crawford, but if you're capable of scoring 5 goals a night, you can make amends.

5 games, 5 OTs, WTF? Getting pumped for the game this Sunday against the Lightning. Taking wife for her Bday. Just realized I will probably miss Bear game as I will be traveling up to Chitown. Could be a good thing. Last game I was on the road during was Tampa game.

I can't believe how much the Blackhawks lost the Saad 2.0 trade. I thought Saad's return would be ideal, considering Hossa's quasi-retirement and that lack of a big bodied agile scorer who could double down on defense was suddenly looking like it wasn't so absent.

Then Saad doesn't really have the vision anymore. He's not even remotely himself out there, so much so that he's a healthy scratch. I hope he remembers the game soon, because they need him badly.

Not as badly as they need a healthy Corey Crawford, but still - badly.

Was at the game last night and I can say the 2nd period was the worst hockey I have ever seen in my lifetime. TB had 33 shots in the 2nd period!!! That D is lacking big time. They looked slow (not sure how much impact playing the night before had). Seabrook is done. I think it is time to take some lumps and let the young kids play and figure this game out.

Never heard the UC so quiet as it was during the 2nd period. It was really bizarre.

Had the misfortune of spending money and attending the game against the Lightning on 10/21. What a putrid friggin effort that night. They give up 33 shots in the 2nd period!!!!!! Son of a bitch, some teams don't get that many in an entire game. Ended up leaving midway thru the 3rd. Missed their mini comeback, didn't care.

Last night they looked like a completely different team. Crow is looking good. 2-0 in his 2 starts back.

Fuck Cam Ward. D seems to suck big balls when he is in goal. Saad finally woke from his slumber and Kaner keeps scoring.

It was a nice win in a young season that doesn't seem to indicate they'll be anything less than a mercurial bunch. I'm glad Saad finally got a goal, and his celebration after was nice to see. He's needed it.

I'm not ready to bag Cam Ward but he shouldn't be playing anyway. Crawford is the end-all, be-all of any success this franchise has in 2018/19.

CROW!!! Shit he looks good and the team looks a lot better in front of him. Another good team win. I like the way some of the young guys are playing. Fortin, Gustaffson, The Cat. Kaner keeps scoring as well.

I find it hard to even get interested in hockey until December ... doesn't matter if they are doing good or bad

so Saturday Dec 1st @ Nashville is when I will wake up to what they're up to ... and I have tentative plans to actually be at that game thanks to a friend's wedding being in the area - I might get the groom's ticket

so while he is off getting jiggy with his new wife, I may be holding fort to scream like a maniac for the Blackhawks in his stead
