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.
