Videos: Blackhawks vs Penguins

Scott vs Engelland:

The Pinball machine:

Recap: Happy Feet


The Penguins had a case of Happy Feet tonight against the Hawks. They couldn't seem to keep their feet on the ice. And it wasn't for dancing.

Time for this week's "I think that's mean." (this isn't a weekly thing, I just thought it sounded nice) Scott completely destroyed Engelland. Engelland's helmet, also, felt the anger from the Scott's fist. What did the helmet ever do to you? The beating on Engelland was for good reason. Engelland laid a nasty hit on Kruger. Some might call it a "high" hit, but I like to call it a "head" hit. Kruger was out for the rest of the game, but Engelland was not. The fight against Scott had my mom saying "I think that's mean." Well you know what's actually "mean" a dirty hit.

Personally, I only like the Penguins when they're in Santa hats and handing out gifts to little kids. The dancing cartoon ones aren't too bad either.

The Pens were leading 2-0 when the Hawks got their first goal. It looked as if Stalberg had scored, which had everyone yelling "HE FINISHED! HE FINISHED!" Unfortunately, they couldn't finish their chant, because Stalberg didn't finish. Goal went to Toews.

God and Baby Jesus teamed up for their best combination, since Christmas. Hossa and Kane had an absolutely beautiful passing play with a goal by Stalberg to finish it out. HE FINISHED! HE FINISHED! HE FINI...oh...HE DID FINISH! I bet Kane learned those moves from playing the giant pinball machine in the Chevy commercial.

For the rest of the 3rd, Stalberg acted like a kid who went on a roller coaster for the first time and wanted to ride it again and again. But instead he scored and wanted to score again and again. He was all over the net, including the post, which he hit a couple of times.

The last few minutes of the game were the kind that made you feel like you played in the game after watching it. "Wooo, we need to go hit the showers and take a nap after that one." Instead I just finally got off the couch and changed the channel.

The late surge of energy wasn't enough for the Hawks. They fell to the Penguins 3-2. In other news, Hawks fans all over the Chicago land area are recovering from heart attack symptoms.

Notes:
-Seabrooks made a quick comeback from his hit last game. He's the Beast.
...I mean he's a beast!
-Question of the day: Am I the only person that sees Matt Cooke and every time pronounces it cookie in their head?
-It just wouldn't be a game on Versus if I didn't mention Pierre McGuire. He talked to Coach Q on the bench about Kruger: "I'm not sure." And I don't want to talk to you.
-Everyone else talking to Pierre during the game: "I don't want to talk to you."
-In today's translations by me:
Announcer: "Stalberg looks to the heavens as he skates off the ice."
Me: "Stalberg looks to Hossa as he skates off the ice."

Hawks vs Sharks

The opening page on NHL.com.

Listening to the Blackhawks play in overtime is way more nerve-racking than watching it on TV. I listened as Brunette tied the game late in the third off of Hossa's shot. Sharp won it in overtime just a couple days after the birth of his first child.
Of course, he scored for Madelyn Grace!
Hawks won 3-2 against the Sharks.

Sharp:

“It’s been a special few days. I know the puck is going in for me but I’m the last person I’m thinking of right now. My wife and baby [are] back home. It’s going to be so much fun to go home right now.” (source)

And congrats to Seabrook on his 500th game! He also had an assist on Sharp's overtime goal.

    Around the UC:

    See more photos from the Blackhawks holiday party here.

    -Congrats to the Sharp family on their newborn baby girl!
    Sharp: "It’s crazy. You can prepare and talk about it as much as you want and my brother (Chris) has two daughters and I talked to (Marian) Hossa a lot this year. You can think you're ready for it and when it happens it’s a whole different situation."

    Patrick and Abby Sharp celebrate the birth of Madelyn

    -Seabrook: "I love this organization and I'd love to be here for my whole career." Sunday will be Seabrook's 500th game. It's also another chance for Keith and Seabrook to talk about each other to the media. Keith: "We've kind of grown up together. I've definitely seen Brent mature as a person off the ice as well as on the ice. He has gotten better every year. "It has been awesome to be his teammate for the last seven years."

    -Bowman: "I've been calling a lot of the GM's over the last few weeks to try and find out what they're doing. We've contacted all the teams and we're looking to get better. If we see an opportunity to get either a forward or a defenseman I think we'd have to look at that."
    ESPNChicago:

    -Emery: “I’m happy to get wins but at the same time I think that you can always get better. As soon as you think you’re doing well, get too comfortable something might happen. You just have to be ready.”
    CSNChicago:
    Emery continues to ride confidence streak

    -Toews on Hossa: “There’s nothing he can’t do out there. I’ve said that many times about Hoss; he’s one of those complete packages and one of those rare players you don’t see too often. But at the same time he’s willing to do whatever he has to do to help the team win. He doesn’t have that ego where there’s things he’s too good to do out there. He just goes out there and gets the job done.”
    DailyHerald:
    Is Hossa a Selke Trophy candidate? Why not?

    -CSNChicago:
    #Blackhawks take different approaches to Twitter

    -Carcillo: "It's different sitting in the room with microphones. You've got to kind of pretend you're talking to people. It's different, but it's also fun, interesting and new. It's something I've been interested in for the longest time. ... I'm pretty proud of it."

    Update: Hawks vs Coyotes

    The Hawks took on the "team not cool enough to be wolves" Coyotes. It was a comeback game for the Hawks, but don't call it a comeback. They tied the game 3-3, but ended up losing to the Coyotes in a shootout. It was, also, a Toews love fest.

    Toews and Kane scored to tie the game 3-3. Keith's shot on the power play was slipped in by Toews for a goal, but was immediately ruined by having to listen to Pierre McGuire during the celebration. Toews gave a beautiful pass to Kane for a goal. Kane fell during the celebration and Toews was all like, "okay let's celebrate down there!" I just have to say it again, there are good hockey players and there are great hockey players. Then there is Toews.

    And then there is Sidney Crosby as a vampire. If you were a a hockey fan living under a rock today, you missed an interesting, hilarious interview with John Steigerwald. Listen here.

    The Blackhawks take on the Islanders at 6 on Thursday.

    Now take the time to watch this: Stalberg's face is in it and food. Can't get better than that.

    Update: Thanksgiving Leftovers


    Apparently, the Blackhawks prefer duck over turkey. They had a 6-5 Black Friday win against the Ducks. We had our first holiday miracle of the season: Seabrook was seen on the TV in skates, while in a uniform, on the ice. He's baaaccckkk!

    Things Bobby Ryan has said and done that annoy me: 1. He doesn't like baseball 2. He gave Breaking Dawn a bad movie review 3. He scored the first goal against the Hawks. The Ducks didn't stop there, they quacked twice within a minute for a 2-0 lead.

    Sharpy plucked the first feather off the duck 2-1, and it certainly wasn't his last. Selanne scored for the Ducks on the power play and the camera immediately cut to a Hawks fan shaking his head. That was the appropriate reaction. It was all Bolly bitch on the power play 3-2.

    I missed some of the game. I was asked to go on a werewolf hunt with my nephew/niece. Who would go on a bear hunt when you can go on a werewolf hunt? Anyway, I came back to find out wolverine (Toews) scored. How appropriate. Oh, and Sharp was a very handsome man with the puck for a second time.

    Sharp had plucked and plucked all game long, then he finally killed the turkey and served it on a platter with a hat trick! That hat trick was provided by a very handsome man. Invisible hats were flying all over the place! (One day I will not refer to Sharp's looks in a recap, but today will not be that day)


    The Blackhawks won 6-5, now it's time for you to head over to Runs On Duncan to read her recap made of GIFs here.

    "Really honey, it's not all about you." Foley opened the Saturday's game with those words on the Kings' national anthem singer. Pat Foley started trending worldwide soon after, which made me a happy human. Brunette gave the Hawks a 1-0 lead. Sorry, I'm out of hair color jokes. If you could even call them jokes to begin with.

    The Hawks needed to keep the turnovers on the Thanksgiving dessert table and off the ice. The Kings tied the game on turnovers by Seabrook and Keith. Toews contiuned his hot streak with another goal 2-1. He's on fire and it's not just that red streak on his forehead, which made an appearance during intermission. WGN had some hiccups, which eventually turned into throw up. The third was basically just a series of flashes of the game. I'm not exactly sure what happened, thanks to WGN.

    "Really WGN, it's not all about you."

    The Hawks won 2-1 over the Kings! But, in the end, it was really a win for all of us because we didn't have to watch WGN anymore.

    In Honor of Thanksgiving: The Best/Worst Chef

    An oldie but a goodie

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Let's make this a quick one. There's food to be eaten and Blackhawks losses to be forgotten. The Hawks lost 1-0 to the Sharks. Niemi was the ex-family member (divorce), who still showed up to Thanksgiving and ate all the food. It was his first shutout of the season. Now go eat a turkey and pretend it's a Shark. Go stuff your Blackhawks sadness with stuffing. And if you survive Black Friday, tune into the Blackhawks vs Ducks at 3 p.m.

    HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

    Around the UC:


    -Seabrook: "I'm feeling good. It's tough to sit out anytime. I hate it. I'm probably the worst. The trainers all probably want to kill me. They're working to get me back on the ice, so they can stop dealing with me, I think. It's tough to sit out and tough to watch your team play and feel like you can be out there and kind of help out."
    ChicagoSun-Times:
    Seabrook, Frolik take part in Blackhawks practice

    -Kane: “He’s done so many great things for the sport, and he’s been one of the most dominant players this century. He’s fun to watch. He’s a guy that players like myself and other younger players can learn from, and he’s great for the league.”
    ESPNChicago:
    Hawks also in awe of Crosby's return

    -Seabrook: “I’m feeling good. I think it’s progressed every day. You never really fear the worst on things like that unless your arm’s sticking out of the skin or something like that. I thought it was just a stinger, charley-horse type of thing.”
    CSNChicago:
    Hawks' Seabrook eager to return

    -Kane: "Time is flying by. I can remember when I came into the league, it feels like yesterday. I was 18 and turning 19 in the month of November and now I'm turning 23. A lot of good things have happened in my career so far. I'm excited about where the rest will lead."
    ChicagoTribune:
    Turning 23, Kane growing up

    -Stalberg: “Guys were really upset about that loss and the way we lost. We went into Vegas knowing that and I don’t think it was as crazy as it could have been so guys respected that loss and respect that we want to get back to work and get points on this road trip.”

    Explosion of awesomeness (as well as Crawsomeness)


    1st:
    Blackhawks vs Canucks games are always exciting. The 1st period of tonight's game was no different. It was fast paced and full of good chances from both teams. It was all about the Corey and the other Cory. It was a battle of goalies. Crawsome moments were happening all over the place. Bolland was back and it didn't take long for him to be reunited with Bickell and Frolik. We also learned the new term "feathered it to Stalberg." Seems everyone has their own meaning. I have a feeling a lot of fan girls wouldn't mind feathering Stalberg.

    2nd:
    Hansen scored about 30 seconds into the 2nd for the Canucks. Kesler tripped Stalberg for the first penalty of the game. Everyone prefers Brunettes! Brunette scored on the Hawks power play and gave me another opportunity to make a bad joke about hair color. His goal was assisted by a pass from Kruger and Montador. Keith forgot to shoot the puck, which caused about 20 tweets right after one another on my timeline of "SHOOT THE PUCK." Burrows went to the box for pulling ha...I mean slashing. Another power play goal for the Hawks! Toews (or Kane) scored just seconds into the pp 2-1. Keith saved goal (once again) on a 2 on 1. He was just showing off, since he knew Seabrook was watching closely. Stalberg had a little trouble at the end of the period or as Foley said he didn't know they were playing hockey. Coach Q ripped him a new one, there was no feathering involved this time.

    3rd:
    Bolland had an interesting high stick to the ear. Huge save by Crawford. Big. Huge! Now just imagine Crawford saying that as a hooker to a bitchy woman at a high end store in Beverly Hills. That's going to be awkward if you didn't catch the movie reference. Hossa got feisty with Hansen. Watch out for the wrath of God. Frolik was down for a bit, after going awkwardly into the boards. One of the Sedin bitches gave Crawford a stick to the groin. It was clearly on purpose. I'm sorry for the language, but fuck you. Seriously, screw you. Not necessary. God (Hossa) helped Wolverine (Toews) score a goal. Now that would be an interesting comic book. Sharp thought the game could use some handsome. It was starting to get ugly with all that Sedin out on the ice. I think the Canucks were trying to tell the Hawks something when they played "Fuck You" by CeeLo Green, after the Hawks fourth goal. Montador ended the game with goal in honor of Vigneault. You know how much he loves when the Blackhawks run up the score. Sorry the Blackhawks can't contain their awesomeness.

    The Hawks will try to put out the Flames on Friday!

    Bolland's attempt at Toews Face. Awkward.

    Tuesday, November 15, 2011

    Around the UC:

    -Coach Q on Bolland: “It’s encouraging we saw him out there and there’s a chance he can play. Hopefully we can get him back. We use him in so many different ways.”
    CSNChicago:
    Bolland could play vs. Canucks, Seabrook unlikely

    -Toews: "You can't dwell on the past and what happened last year. We're not thinking of the road trip as a whole. If you look too far ahead it might feel like too much work. We'll have some fun and the boys will enjoy it. We played well in our own building before going on the road, so we'll use that confidence and play a simple game when we get out there."

    DailyHerald:
    Offense, defense work together to boost Hawks' confidence

    -McDonough on Coach Q: "A good leader is a good leader. Joel possesses a number of skills that translate to the business side. He's incredibly well-prepared. He's very, very passionate. He handles crisis very well. He empowers people and relies heavily on his assistant coaches. There's a high level of intensity."
    ChicagoTribune:

    A Win And A Loss

    The Blackhawks beat the Oilers 6-3 on Sunday, but they lost Seabrook to an injury. We're past the crying, now we're onto the waiting. He's day-to-day with a lower body injury. He went on the trip with the team, but probably won't play vs the Canucks tomorrow.

    Toews gave the Hawk 1-0 lead in the first, then about 30 seconds later Montador scored. He also saved a goal just seconds before. Can't forget to mention his impressive celebration from down on the ice and then up. Montador had a busy first period. He saved a goal and scored a goal, then he was hit behind the net. After limping to the bench, he came back out and scored again.

    We were greeted by the new Chevy commercial with Toews and Kane during intermission. The playing hockey with cars commercial was more realistic than the pinball machine graphics used in the new one. There's no better way to sell cars than hockey players playing in a giant pinball machine.

    Toews furthered the Hawks lead 4-1 to begin the second. Seabrook's injury was foreshadowed when he took a stick to the face. Then Seabrook slammed into the boards awkwardly (watch the painful video here). He left the game and never came back. Keith got the Hawks fifth goal in honor of Seabrook. Duncs scoring after Seabrook left. Coincidence? I think not.

    Kane wrapped up the puck, added a big red bow and passed it over to Carcillo. His empty netter gave the Hawks their 6-3 win.

    Stars of the game: 1. Montador 2. Toews 3. Leddy

    Next up is the Circus Trip also known as the Super Mario Kart trip.

    My Nephew's Preschool Homework:

    A+

    Hawks vs Blues in 140 Characters or Less:

    I wasn't able to watch tonight's game, due to work. So I turned to my Twitter followers and challenged them to recap the game in 140 or less. Judging from their tweets, sounds like it's a good thing I missed it.

    Here's what they had to say...

    @TheKitchenette fail. fail. more fail. clownshoes. shutout. fail.

    @RunsOnDuncan Q decided to tweak things in this game with a sledgehammer. Also, Scott was in for whatever reason. Result: 3-0 Blues.

    @The_FFF How's this: FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUetc

    @Keribo1 Suckage. #enoughsaid

    @FiveHoleLuck Easy... Worse effort than witnessed in the Canucks game. No bright spots at all. #blackhawks

    @DaChicagoFan I don't need 140. Just think about the Carolina game and that is all you really need to know. It wasn't pretty

    @luckynumber19 uhh...the hawks choked and couldn't even score and they lost. #again #imstillbitter

    @motwins8391 This game is not worthy of 140 characters. Eight will suffice: womp womp.

    @Bowman1 not a lot of good hockey played by the hawks tonight.

    Monday, November 7, 2011

    Weekend Recap:

    Friday: Blackhawks 4 Lightning 5
    The Hawks and Lightning played a game of back and forth. They scored, we scored, they scored, we scored. Looks like Hossa found his baby Jesus, Kane. They continued their magic. Carcillo also created some magic on his backhand shot to give the Hawks a 3-2 lead. Sharp was a very handsome man, but you can add a second 'very' to that handsome. He scored twice. The dads were in the crowd for the Father's Trip. I hope at least one dad yelled "THAT'S MY SON" after the goals. I don't know if you heard this or not, but Stamkos is good at hockey. He proved it with a hat trick. Apparently, the Hawks didn't know he was good. They just let him walk right up to the goal. The game ended with a Lightning strike in overtime.

    Sunday: Blackhawks 2 Canucks 6
    Bolland before Sunday's game: "Something will happen."
    Something did happen:
    The Hawks pooped their pants big time and made a mess all over the ice. They look to clean up their pants in time to take on the Blues tomorrow night at 7 on CSN.

    "Let's Get Down To Business"


    To defeat the Panthers!

    Stalberg's tweet before last night's game:

    "@VStalberg Game vs the panthers tonight should be a good one with all the dads in the house. Been a great trip so far now let's get down
    to business"

    Thank you, Stalberg. Mulan's "I'll Make a Man Out of You" was stuck in my head the rest of the day. The Hawks got down to business and defeated the Panthers in a shootout 3-2.

    The Blackhawks showed their dads they're men now ("Be A Man!") unlike the last dad's trip. The Hawks took a 2-0 lead with goals from Toews and Hossa. Kane had a great pass to Hossa on the second goal, while Kopecky was seen weeping in the background. Kane had a goal of his own. He won it in the shootout.

    Crawford was the real hero of the game. He was also given the belt, which is pretty fancy this season.

    Quick hits:
    -Keith missed the game with his day-to-day hand injury.
    -A lot of familiar faces on the Panthers. However, there was some unfamiliar hair. What's going on with all that stuff on Versteeg's head?
    -The Blackhawks play again tonight vs the Lightning at 6:30 p.m. on CSN! LET'S GO HAWKS!

    Father's Trip

    Cue the awwwwwww... The moms had their turn last year, now it's all about the dads! What do you get when you add warm weather and men together? Golf. The Hawks took their dads golfing, during their trip to Florida. Of course, BHTV was there!
