*Insert stars cliche*

A starry night at the United Center for the Blackhawks. The Hawks reached for the stars in their home opener. It was all in the stars for the Blackhawks in their 5-2 win.

I just love when the Blackhawks play a team like the Stars, it brings out the cheesy sayings. I couldn't just use one, especially for an event like the home opener. The United Center rolled out the red carpet for the Hawks, which brought out the grown men pushing aside teenage girls to get a photo of their favorite player. The red carpet gives a chance for the Hawks to show off their fashion skills like Bolland and his bow tie. After the Hawks practically ran down the awkward red carpet, they showed off their real skills on the ice with a win against the Stars.

Brunette proved he ain't no dumb blonde with the Hawks first goal of the game. I'm glad he gave me the opportunity to use my bad joke so early in the season. Dowell was welcomed back to the UC by Mayers. No real winner in their fight.

Some poor soul tried to mess with Bolland and was greeted with the Bolland death stare. He doesn't throw punches, he throws daggers. He basically scared the puck into the net to give the Blackhawks a 2-0 lead.

Toews was sent to the box and wasn't too happy about it. Angry Toews always scores angry goals. He came out of the box and was greeted by a beautiful pass from Seabrook.

Who said you can't see shooting stars in the city? There was two shooting Stars seen in the United Center on Saturday. Literally.

Just two things you need to know:
1. Patrick Sharp is a very handsome man
2. Patrick Sharp's goal was a very handsome goal

The ice was taken by surprise a few too many times during the game with the stomping feet of Scott. I love Scott, but not while I'm watching hockey. Someone I do love seeing is Kane. He was a beast the entire night and doing all the right things.

Bolland ended the game with an empty netter as a way for him to say "it's Bolly bitch" to the Stars.

To conclude my song from the preview, "Catch a falling star an' put it in your pad, save the win for the home opener." And the Blackhawks redeemed themselves.
