World Peace

1st period:
-Hockey Fight's Cancer Night at the United Center. Toews gave his stick away to the kid who dropped the puck.
-Stalberg back in the line-up. Scott still in the line-up. Hendry scratched.
-Scary Facts: Cullimore paired up with Scott.
-Puck possession was huge for the Hawks early in the period.
-The Canucks had a lot of opportunities, but once again Turco kept the Hawks in the game. Three terrific saves in row.
-Brouwer had a hard hit against him. He was hurting, but he's a hockey play so what did he do? He got right back out on the ice.
-Hossa had a smooth swoop to take away the puck from a Canuck at center ice. A move only god could make.
-Stalberg showed his speed throughout the first period, then showed his scoring skills. After a pass from Dowell, Stalberg scored with a little over 30 seconds left in the first. Can't say enough good things about the fourth line.
-Every time I heard Alberts' name, I thought of this photo. Good times.
-Scoring Chances:
*Toews looked for the puck after Keith's wrister to the net.
*Boynton with a long pass to Toews. He went off the post.
*Hossa with good speed down the line, but missed Toews.
*Skille with a wrap around the net. He's due for a goal.

2nd Period:
-Ozzie Guillen sat on the glass. Nothing better than when the White Sox and Blackhawks collide.
-Hawks powerplay. First penalty of the game. Hawks vs Canucks and a penalty doesn't come till the 2nd? I'm shocked too.
-Badass moment that wasn't performed by Hossa: Turco came flying out of the goal. Not just a little bit out of the comfort zone, but full blown almost to center ice. He broke up a breakaway. And got called for tripping. It was awesome! If this was Huet in the net, I would be saying he needs to clean his pants. But with Turco in the net, you gotta clean your own pants.
-Keith called for Highsticking with about 25 seconds left in the 2nd.
-Scoring Chances:
*Sharp, Seabrook, and Kane all over the net early in the second. Sharp wanted one badly there, but Luongo was not the Luongo from last night.
*Bolland tried a hack at Luongo next.
*Boynton's shot was redirected. He's been on his game ever since that 'scandal' came out about him and Jen Patterson. Just saying.
*Hossa and Bolland had a 2 on 1.
*Seabrook had shot and Kopecky was called for interference during it. Bullshit call.
*Sharp misses the opportunity to pass on a 2 on 1. He was clearly pushed down by a Canuck.
*Skille with a fancy move to provide Stalberg with a second scoring chance. Skille has transformed this year. He's got skill.

3rd Period:
-A Sedin Sister used it's witch craft to get the puck past Seabrook and Turco to tie the game. Need a Halloween Costume? There ya go! The Sedin Sisters. Creepy? Check.
-Kesler and Hammer collide. Kesler for slashing. Hammer for holding. 4 on 4.
-Bolland drew a slashing penalty after he received a beauty of a pass from Seabrook. 4 on 3.
-In the final minutes of the game, Bieska pushed Toews. Stupid? Yes, but Hawks didn't take advantage.
Scoring Chances:
*Sharp hit a shot off the post, which hit Toews in the mouth. Fat lip, no goal.
*Four Words: Hossa. Breakaway. Jesus Christ. The Sedin Sister's must of had their witch craft guarding the goal, because their is no way Luongo can block the power of Hossa.

Overtime:
Full of nerveracking moments.

Shootout:
Toews-Goal
Sharp-Goal
Kane-Goal
Only Canuck that mattered: Samuelsson-MISS

Hawks Win 2-1 in a Shootout! That is now four in a row for the Hawks!

Number One Star: Turco! "@unitedcenter: Turco says he loves you guys and he loves playing here" He's a keeper!

Post-Game Thoughts:
-Each game the Hawks win in a row, we get a little closer to world peace.
-Seabrook's 400th game and the Hawks 4th win. No it's not a coincidence.
