Toews: “It looked like we all picked the same night to crap the bed."
No, people aren't throwing up from too much to drink. It's from watching the Blackhawks lose 5-0 to the Stars.
Starters: Sharp, Toews, Kane, and Seabrook/Keith
Scratches: Bickell (sick), Bolland, Campbell, Soupy
A Seabrook interference and a Dallas power play kicked off St. Patty's day night. Good kill for the Blackhawks and Kane with a close chance. Stalberg was creating opportunities with his speed. Johnson drew a tripping penalty for the Hawks first power play. Dowell channeled his inner drunken Irishman when he laid some punches on Segal. Segal left the fight with his face covered in red instead of green. Ott scored on the Stars' second breakaway attempt. The Hawks got lucky on the first attempt, then the fourth clover fell off and the Stars led 1-0 at the end of the first.
And the Hawks never found another fourth leaf clover for the rest of the night.
The Stars opened up the second with a 2 on 1 and scored. At the end of the play, Seabrook accidently took down Crawford. The Stars scored again. Crawford was pulled and Turco was brought in. Keith got a high stick to the face and the Hawks got a 4 minute power play. The Hawks didn't even get a chance to capitalize on the opportunity. Everything went down hill. Keith hit a Star. Ott went after Keith. Some scuffling. Keith to the box. Kane was shaken up a bit when he was hit by Robidas. No call on the hit. Another 2 on 1 for the Stars and it was on the Hawks' power play, but Turco stopped the first shot and the rebound. The second wrapped up with a breakaway for Ott and a glove save by Turco.
Keith was on the bench with his head down and clearly in pain after blocking shot. The Stars scored two more. Turco made a mistake and hand delivered the puck to Williams for an empty netter. The game ended with "Peanut Butter Jelly Time" ringing through the stadium.
And that's what happened.
I'm going to leave out the "fucks" and the "shits" and leave you with "that was just turrrible" in my best Charles Barkley voice.
(I guess this wouldn't be a great time to announce that playoff tickets go on sale Monday for the Blackhawks)
