It's The Mighty Blackhawks, Not The Mighty Ducks

It's actually three for the Blackhawks with a 3-2 overtime win over the Ducklings. This game was a step in the right direction for the Blackhawks. Now it's time to carry this over to the Circus trip, which starts this week.

Starters: Toews, Kane, Stalberg, and Keith/Boynton
Goalie: Crawford
Scratches: Hendry and Scott

Bolland got familiar with the ice to start off the game. He went down, after what appeared to be pain in his left leg. He limped to the bench, but came back shortly after. It's much easier to shake off a leg, then to shake off a back. Brouwer drew a hooking penalty, that sent Lydman to the box and the Blackhawks to the powerplay. Kane immediately made Lydman regret ever making any sort of hooking gesture with a powerplay goal to the put the Hawks on top 1-0. Kane scored off of Sharp's rebound. Now everyone get your pretend surprise face ready! Just 57 seconds later, Perry tied the game for the Ducks. Keith wasn't so pretty on that one and Keith wasn't so Norris on that one. A Keith turnover, leaves a bad taste in your mouth. Campbell cooked up a scoring opportunity favored soup with a great pass to Toews. However, Hiller equaled Campbell's pass with a good save. Camera zoomed up on Bolland trying to get the puck, looked like Bolland cleaning out a turkey's ass. The first ended with penalty on Hossa and a penalty killed.

-Hiller was giving up some pretty tasty rebounds, the Hawks needed to eat those up and capitalize. Voros had a hard hit from behind on Brouwer, who lost his helmet. Boynton jumped in to exchange a few words, while Voros was called for interference. That's penalty number two drawn by Brouwer. The Ducks were handing off powerplays left and right, this time getting called for two many Ducks on the pond. Hossa was quiet since coming back, but you know what they say God never goes out of style. Only men with great power can score off their own rebound.

Missed the 3rd period due to cooking a 30 pound turkey, no big deal or anything. To keep myself in Blackhawks mode, I pretended it was a Duck. Somewhere along the way the Ducks tied the game, shocker! However, I popped my head in to see overtime and BOOM! That's a Blackhawks winner. Much like Hossa only women with great power can walk into a room and cause the Blackhawks to score or I guess the Swedish beauty can do that too....

With the Christmas season vastly approaching, this is a song for Duncan Keith:

Where are you Duncan
Why can't we find you
Why have you gone away
Where is the play
You used to bring me
Why can't I hear Chelsea play

Original: "Where Are You Christmas"


  1. "only women with great power can walk into a room and cause the Blackhawks to score"

    You're referring to us of course, since that's exactly what happened haha.

  2. All we want for Christmas is Duncan Keith
    Duncan Keith
    Duncan Keith

    Poor Duncs! He seems so sad and you can tell he misses Seabs. I am convinced that all will not be right in the Blackhawks world until Duncs is playing his best and is back again with Seabs.

  3. I agree. Seabrook was interviewed about Duncs a couple of days ago and he looked so sad. He could barely answer the questions lol
