A Very Brief Look at the Hawks' Night in Saskatoon:
Hockey is back! The Blackhawks had their first preseason game tonight vs the Oilers. Most of us were glued to our computer screens, just squealing at the sight of hockey. Have I mentioned its been a long summer? The Blackhawks very nicely streamed the game on their website for us fans. Judging from the video stream, the Hawks were playing either in the late 80s or early 90s. And how about that 50/50? Unfortunately, the Hawks did not win the 50/50 nor did they win the game. They fell to the Oilers 4-2 with goals from Rostislav Olesz and Jamal Mayers. Here's a look at what the roster looked like for tonight's game: click here. Emery started in the net for the Hawks and let in two goals. Salak also saw time in the goal in the 2nd period and gave up the game winner. Stalberg had a lot of chances and played well on a line with Toews. Toews and Toews had the opportunity to play together. Who doesn't love a little brother action? It's always fun. You know what would be fun? Having Keith Seabrook play with Keith and Seabrook on the same team with Toews and Toews. Anyway, the Hawks will play the Pens in the second preseason game on Thursday.
