When I think about last night's Blackhawks game, I think GREAT! It was just so great, that's why I named this recap great. Isn't that just great? I start to repeat myself when I can't think of what to write. Should I say great again?


Starters: Bickell, Bolland, Frolik, Keith, and Leddy
Goalie: Crawford
Scratches: Scott, Olesz, and Lepisto
Wise Words of the Game: "They're forever. And that's a long time." - Eddie O on the Hull and Mikita statues.

The game started with a boarding call on Hammer and the Blackhawks did nothing with the power play. The first half of the first period was just about how empty arena was. Did you know hockey isn't very popular in Phoenix? Did you know there's a lot of empty seats at the game? Wow, look at all those empty seats! Hey, look no one is in their seat, insert "there must be a long line for the bathroom" joke.

Bolland had a scare in the first and no he didn't catch a reflection of his own death stare in the glass. He went down for a moment, after sliding into the goal. He probably took his own advice and told himself: "keep coming, keep going, let's go." Hossa was back and the Coyotes felt the wrath of God when he gave the Hawks a 1-0 lead. The Coyotes ended the period by missing a chance on a wide open net. I guess that's what happens when you're not cool enough to be a dog or a wolf.

I insulted the Coyotes and then they tied the game. Leave it to the Captain to take the Hawks lead back with a rebound. The Coyotes tied the game again on a turnover with Keith down. Mayers got his first goal as a Hawk with a redirect on a long shot by Keith. Thankfully, the back and forth eventually stopped

Bolland fact #84: He will score on your power play. He scored a shorty with a steal in the Coyotes zone. It's Bolly bitch. Never forget.

Bick! Bick! Bickell! He gave the Hawks their final goal with a wrister. He had a beautiful helper from Frolik. I heard around town, that line is now known as the "rat pack." I like it.

Hawks win! Hawks win! Hawks win!

It was great.

Side note: @ChrisKuc (Chicago Tribune) announced, after the game, that Seabrook is engaged. Congrats to Seabrook and his girlfriend Dayna!
