The Penguins had a case of Happy Feet tonight against the Hawks. They couldn't seem to keep their feet on the ice. And it wasn't for dancing.
Time for this week's "I think that's mean." (this isn't a weekly thing, I just thought it sounded nice) Scott completely destroyed Engelland. Engelland's helmet, also, felt the anger from the Scott's fist. What did the helmet ever do to you? The beating on Engelland was for good reason. Engelland laid a nasty hit on Kruger. Some might call it a "high" hit, but I like to call it a "head" hit. Kruger was out for the rest of the game, but Engelland was not. The fight against Scott had my mom saying "I think that's mean." Well you know what's actually "mean" a dirty hit.
Personally, I only like the Penguins when they're in Santa hats and handing out gifts to little kids. The dancing cartoon ones aren't too bad either.
The Pens were leading 2-0 when the Hawks got their first goal. It looked as if Stalberg had scored, which had everyone yelling "HE FINISHED! HE FINISHED!" Unfortunately, they couldn't finish their chant, because Stalberg didn't finish. Goal went to Toews.
God and Baby Jesus teamed up for their best combination, since Christmas. Hossa and Kane had an absolutely beautiful passing play with a goal by Stalberg to finish it out. HE FINISHED! HE FINISHED! HE FINI...oh...HE DID FINISH! I bet Kane learned those moves from playing the giant pinball machine in the Chevy commercial.
For the rest of the 3rd, Stalberg acted like a kid who went on a roller coaster for the first time and wanted to ride it again and again. But instead he scored and wanted to score again and again. He was all over the net, including the post, which he hit a couple of times.
The last few minutes of the game were the kind that made you feel like you played in the game after watching it. "Wooo, we need to go hit the showers and take a nap after that one." Instead I just finally got off the couch and changed the channel.
The late surge of energy wasn't enough for the Hawks. They fell to the Penguins 3-2. In other news, Hawks fans all over the Chicago land area are recovering from heart attack symptoms.
-Seabrooks made a quick comeback from his hit last game. He's the Beast.
...I mean he's a beast!
-Question of the day: Am I the only person that sees Matt Cooke and every time pronounces it cookie in their head?
-It just wouldn't be a game on Versus if I didn't mention Pierre McGuire. He talked to Coach Q on the bench about Kruger: "I'm not sure." And I don't want to talk to you.
-Everyone else talking to Pierre during the game: "I don't want to talk to you."
-In today's translations by me:
Announcer: "Stalberg looks to the heavens as he skates off the ice."
Me: "Stalberg looks to Hossa as he skates off the ice."

The opening page on NHL.com.
Listening to the Blackhawks play in overtime is way more nerve-racking than watching it on TV. I listened as Brunette tied the game late in the third off of Hossa's shot. Sharp won it in overtime just a couple days after the birth of his first child.
Of course, he scored for Madelyn Grace!
Hawks won 3-2 against the Sharks.

-Congrats to the Sharp family on their newborn baby girl!
Sharp: "It’s crazy. You can prepare and talk about it as much as you want and my brother (Chris) has two daughters and I talked to (Marian) Hossa a lot this year. You can think you're ready for it and when it happens it’s a whole different situation."

-Seabrook: "I love this organization and I'd love to be here for my whole career." Sunday will be Seabrook's 500th game. It's also another chance for Keith and Seabrook to talk about each other to the media. Keith: "We've kind of grown up together. I've definitely seen Brent mature as a person off the ice as well as on the ice. He has gotten better every year. "It has been awesome to be his teammate for the last seven years."

-Bowman: "I've been calling a lot of the GM's over the last few weeks to try and find out what they're doing. We've contacted all the teams and we're looking to get better. If we see an opportunity to get either a forward or a defenseman I think we'd have to look at that."

-Emery: “I’m happy to get wins but at the same time I think that you can always get better. As soon as you think you’re doing well, get too comfortable something might happen. You just have to be ready.”

-Toews on Hossa: “There’s nothing he can’t do out there. I’ve said that many times about Hoss; he’s one of those complete packages and one of those rare players you don’t see too often. But at the same time he’s willing to do whatever he has to do to help the team win. He doesn’t have that ego where there’s things he’s too good to do out there. He just goes out there and gets the job done.”

-Carcillo: "It's different sitting in the room with microphones. You've got to kind of pretend you're talking to people. It's different, but it's also fun, interesting and new. It's something I've been interested in for the longest time. ... I'm pretty proud of it."

The Hawks took on the "team not cool enough to be wolves" Coyotes. It was a comeback game for the Hawks, but don't call it a comeback. They tied the game 3-3, but ended up losing to the Coyotes in a shootout. It was, also, a Toews love fest.
Toews and Kane scored to tie the game 3-3. Keith's shot on the power play was slipped in by Toews for a goal, but was immediately ruined by having to listen to Pierre McGuire during the celebration. Toews gave a beautiful pass to Kane for a goal. Kane fell during the celebration and Toews was all like, "okay let's celebrate down there!" I just have to say it again, there are good hockey players and there are great hockey players. Then there is Toews.
And then there is Sidney Crosby as a vampire. If you were a a hockey fan living under a rock today, you missed an interesting, hilarious interview with John Steigerwald. Listen here.
The Blackhawks take on the Islanders at 6 on Thursday.
Now take the time to watch this: Stalberg's face is in it and food. Can't get better than that.
