Recap: Hawks vs Jackets

Starters: Bickell, Bolland, Pisani, and Seabrook/Keith
Goalie: Turco
Scratches: Hendry and Johnson
Lines: Brouwer, Toews, Sharp
Hossa, Kopecky, Stalberg
Skille, Dowell, Scott

The game started with the crowd roaring as Hossa touched the ice for the first time in ten games. And the game ended with the crowd roaring as Hossa touched the ice for earning the first star of the night.

It was just all in a regular game for God. Granting all the Hawks' fans prayers. He showed off his god-like moves in the first. He went down the ice and around the net for a pass to his boyfriend. Kopecky put it in to give the Hawks a 1-0 lead. The Solvakian bromance was back. Hossa also drew a slashing penalty for the Hawks first powerplay. He ended the game with two assists and the first star.

There was tight competition for the first star of the night. Sharp scored two goals for an early birthday present (his birthday is tomorrow). His first came in the second, just seconds after a delayed penalty. The Hawks' powerplay started with a face-off win by Toews, then Seabrook got the puck to Sharp. And the rest is handsome history.

The Triple B's or Killer B's known as Bickell, Brouwer, and Bolland all contributed for the Hawks' third goal. Just about 30 seconds later, Sharp got his second goal, which was his 20th of the season. Brouwer made two great passes on both.

The other star of the night was the big man in the goal, Turco. He was huge tonight. He stopped 26 of 27 shots. He made quick saves in the first with a crowd in front of the net. The Blue Jacket's took away his shutout with their pity goal, but he solid the whole game. He silenced the doubters with Crawford out with a sickness.

Quick hits:
-Skille had a penalty shot opportunity. Of all people to have one chance to score. He missed. He can't feel too bad, since the last penalty shot scored at home was about 20 years ago.
-Dowell had a solid fight against Dorsett.
-There was a lot of chirping between play. I'm sure they were just exchanging some belated holiday greetings.
-Sharp is now third in the league for scoring.

This is the Hawks fourth Viktory in a row! They look to make it five against the Blues on Tuesday!

  1. Good recap, I don't think Hossa's wife would appreciate you calling Kopecky his boyfriend though :D
    "He ended the game with a goal, two assists, and the first star." BTW, Hossa didn't have a goal.

  2. Thanks! Looks like I just got so excited that Hossa was back that I gave him a goal. Thanks for the heads up.
