Around the UC: Convention Weekend

(see more photos from convention weekend here)

-Kane: “The image I have now, I can only strive to get better. The stories I have to put behind me; the same with the reputation. I love playing hockey. It’s my favorite thing to do in this world. That’s what I’m all about and that’s probably what I’ve thought too much about and the other things off the ice, not so much. You have to reinvent yourself. I know the person I am and who I can be.”
CSNChicago: Kane 'embarrassed' by off-ice actions, wants to be a role model 


-Hossa: "Without the contact I feel fine. The next thing is going to be on the ice. I want to see how it is when the contact starts. A little push or shot from behind could be different than just biking."


-Keith: “We have a good group here. No matter who is in the room, it’s always up to the players to get the job done.”

-Bickell: "It's great to show fans what we do on a regular basis. I like having that chance to interact with them, plus I think my fishing pictures go over pretty well." CSNChicago: Blackhawks, fans build bond through social media 

-Smith: ‘‘You always have to prove yourself. My main goal is to get to 100 percent and then from there earning whatever I can.’’

-Seabrook: "I'm preparing to play hockey. I'm not looking at anything else. I'm just getting ready as I would any other season."


-Crawford: ‘‘I want to do well, and I want to be the No. 1 guy here. No matter what happens outside of my situation, it doesn't change what I’m doing.’’ ChicagoSun-Times: Corey Crawford not bothered by Blackhawks' pursuit of Martin Brodeur 

-Smith: “That’s obviously a goal, to get back to that and even surpass it. Right now, the biggest thing is being healthy physically and being healthy mentally, which will be an edge for me. I’m excited to see what could happen moving forward.”

One Game. Two Recaps.


Recap #1:

You know that moment in Captain America when he wakes up from being frozen? Well, it's kind of like when Toews came back for the first game of the playoffs. Instead of Captain America running into Times Square all confused, imagine he just put on his suit and took down a villain (I'm not going to say kill or beat the shit out of a villain, because we all know Captain America is too wholesome for that). That's what Toews did. He scored the first goal for the Blackhawks to start off the game. This was also my excuse to mention the Avengers.

Pre-game:
It was a late game. Some people were worried they weren't going to make it. So they watched pre-game live for the answer. Konroyd made everyone feel better by saying the Coyotes will "bore you to death." Also, CSN pre-game was prepared for the death of Toews tonight. Toews' wolverine sideburns are starting to come in. They made an appearance in a pre-game interview.

It was a whiteout in the crowd for the Coyotes sprinkled with red Hawks fans. I'm obligated to mention the fact that the Hawks were the ones in white. So awk.

Period 1:
Toews is officially back. But he became double back with his goal. It couldn't have been more perfect. Hammer had a huge hit. His nickname was temporarily changed to the "rock," because he rocked that dude! haha... No? okay. That wasn't any better than Eddie O saying he lit him up like a Christmas tree.

Hey, hey, hey! Whoa, whoa, whoa! First a snow shower, now they're touching Toews! But seriously, the dog that tried to shove his glove into Toews' mouth: unnecessary. Let's try not to be Weber. Oh, wait that would mean he would've had to randomly smash Toews' head into the glass.

The Crawdaddy. The Crawmaster. The Crawinator. Crawford had a huge or as Foley likes to say it "HUUGGE" save. But it was quickly overshadowed by Shaw and his overexcited puppy play.

Period 2:
The howls rang through the arena and the Coyotes were up 2-1. More terrifying than the howls: an angry Bolland (even scarier than regular Bolland) coming at you with his stare and his helmet off.

Interview with Mike Kitchen, the man with the eyebrows that don't move. Look next time. LOOK.

I would call this period 3, but it's...

Recap #2:
14

seconds

left

SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAA
AAAAABBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBRRRRRRRRRRRRRRROOOOOOOOOOKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!OHMYGOD!!!!!!GREATESTTHINGEVERRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That happened. That really happened. Seabrook tied the game with 14 seconds left. IT HAPPENED.

Back to Recap #1:
Overtime.

Game one went to the dogs. The Coyote howl will haunt my dreams tonight.

PS
Remember when Toews came back from Narnia and scored the first playoff goal? Remember when Seabrook tied the game with 14 seconds left? REMEMBER?

The First Sign of the Playoffs

Duncan Keith has something growing from the back of his head:
Bickell shared this photo of the sighting on his Twitter.
Too small to be a mullet? Too big to be a rat tail?
Keith has the answer:


Soon "it" will be having fire coming out of the end.

Last Game of the Regular Season

The Hawks had their last game of the regular season yesterday vs the Red Wings. I came home just in time for overtime and was greeted with CAPS LOCK EVERYWHERE ON MY TIMELINE! Of course, the Hawks went into a shootout.

The Highlight:

DAMMMMN! Someone put the egg in the basket. Am I right? I just couldn't mention this game without an Easter reference. The Hawks won and now it's on to the playoffs!

Around the UC:

-Keith: "I respect what they decided was fair, and I'll serve my time." (source) Keith and Sedin were playing Monopoly. Keith has to go directly to jail and can not pass go or play any games (not just Monopoly) until April 5th. Keith: "I think Brendan does a good job at what he does. I respect it. I’ll serve five games and I’ll be back and I’m looking forward to getting back." (source)

The best thing to come out of all this: Runs On Duncan's updated banner.

Keeping with the Keith theme:

-Hammer: “I’ve played with Seabs before. He’s a top defenseman in the league. It will be fun to play with him again."
ESPNChicago: Replacing Keith will be tough task

- O'Donnell: "You can't replace a guy like that. Everyone steps up. Sometimes other guys play more and in more situations they wouldn't normally play and they get more confidence. Sometimes for a short term these aren't bad things. I think you'll see the 'D' elevate their game to make up for the loss of Duncan. It's only five games so I think we'll be OK."
ChicagoTribune: Time for defense to show its mettle

-PuckDaddy: Jonathan Toews, Duncan Keith, weigh in on Keith's five-game elbowing ban

Go Johnny go was going today: He practiced with the team!

-Toews: “I feel like I’m getting back to that stage to where I’m progressing and getting closer to feeling the right way. I’m just staying positive, hoping that this is the time that hopefully we break through.”
ChicagoSun-Times: Jonathan Toews practices with team again but is playing it safe

More on Toews:

-ChicagoTribune: Toews optimistic about progress

Other links: Tweedledum without Tweedledee

-Kane: “It kind of takes you aback a little bit. But you’re just reading quotes. You’re not hearing him say it firsthand, so who knows what he really meant or how he really said it. But you definitely can take a lot from it.”
ChicagoSun-Times: Blackhawks fired up by shots from Predators coach Barry Trotz

-Kane: “Hopefully we’ll prove him wrong tomorrow and show him his words weren’t true.”
DailyHerald: Hawks' Kane will be amped up

-Crawford: "I never got down on myself. I just kept playing. The season's not over after one game where you have a bad start or it wasn't the best effort that you can give. You've just got to come back the next game and worry about what you've got to do to win a hockey game."

WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THIS PHOTO?

Just stare at it.
And keep staring at it.
I see Sharp.
Then I see this crazy human being (?) with no head and an arm coming out of his stomach.
What do you see?

Let the Games Begin!

Happy Blackhawks vs Canucks game! *President Snow voice*
Chicago will be watching. Or did

In honor of the Hunger Games, I attempted to make Hunger Games references to everything that happened in the Blackhawks vs Canucks game. It wasn't too hard considering all games vs the Canucks end up with them trying to kill each other.

Game on.

Before the game, the Canucks had their bowl full paper that had each Blackhawks player's name on it. They were choosing who they were going to complain and talk shit about during post-game. The player: Duncan Keith. We'll get to that later. Keith just forgot that you're not suppose to put your elbows on the table.

The Canucks (district 2) are like the "Career Tributes." They took a quick 1-0 lead over the Blackhawks (district 12). In the 1st, the Hawks had three penalty KILLS, which meant they only had 21 more to go...

Unfortunately, there were no tracker jackers or fire balls. I'm going to take a guess the Sedins represented the mutts. Kane shot the arrow through the apple in the pig's mouth. Also, known as shooting the puck into the goal 1-1.

The teams showed a great example of the bloodbath at the Cornucopia at the start of the Hunger games when they all decided to shove each other's gloves into each other's faces and take off each other's helmets. The supplies: Duncan Keith's balls, Stalberg's face and Seabrook's hair.

Overtime: Nightlock berries. Unlike Katniss, the Hawks just let the Canucks eat them. Oduya thew the burnt bread to Shaw and he put it in the goal for the overtime win!

Blackhawks win in overtime against the Canucks. "Real or not real?" "Real."

Blackhawks Fall to the Kings 4-0:

Get it? The Hawks lost and Sharp is falling...

Crawford (looking at puck): "Shit." Seabrook (looking at puck): "Shit."

Around the UC:

-Pucks & Pixels finally made it to the 1,000 follower mark on Twitter! P&P has started their write-in contest. You can enter here. You have until midnight on Sunday!

-Patrick Sharp is a very handsome man when he scores goals, but he's also a very handsome man when he's a dad. He's on the cover of Chicago Parent magazine and did an interview for them with his wife. Sharp: "Every day, it's something new and it's something special. Even just sitting on the couch, the three of us, it's a lot of fun. Everything she does is exciting for us, whether it's a smile or a laugh or whatever." You can read the rest of the article and see the adorable photos here:
ChicagoParent: Chicago Blackhawks Patrick Sharp on fatherhood. Here's a video of the shoot that can be summed up in one word: Awwwww!


-“Jonathan Toews was in a minor one-car collision in downtown Chicago this morning while driving himself to the United Center. He was not injured."
CBSChicago: Toews Crashes Car Into Pole In Loop. Seriously, who tries to get an autograph from a person who had just gotten into a car accident?

-Brunette: “When you get to this point of the year and you see the end coming, you see what this hockey team can do and you get excited. Every year is a new experience. This is a crucial time of the year. You want to be playing your best hockey from here on in.”
ChicagoTribune:
Brunette, success go together for Hawks

-Kane on Toews: “Obviously, some guys are going to have to step up like myself and try to do a little bit more and a little bit extra. He’s definitely a huge part of the lineup and a guy you miss. It seems like when he goes out, the lineup gets depleted a little bit. But it’s a good chance for other players to step up.”
ChicagoSun-Times: With Jonathan Toews out, Patrick Kane knows he needs to step up

-"Jonathan Toews will not travel to Los Angeles and Anaheim, nor will defensemen Niklas Hjalmarsson and Steve Montador, as the Blackhawks take on the Kings on Saturday and the Ducks on Sunday."

Toews, Hjalmarsson, Montador won't join Hawks on trip

Restore Hockey: Recycling the Game

You’ve probably recently seen people around the Chicago area wearing hockey laces as bracelets. Well, those trendy new bracelets are for a good cause. Restore Hockey is a non-profit organization helping bring hockey to your neighborhood. By providing used equipment to individuals in need, they bring the love of the sport to underprivileged families and communities. With their donations of new and used equipment, people are able to enjoy the game of hockey.


The Massachusetts based company was founded by Michael Spengler and his wife, Carolyn in 2008. Spengler is a former hockey player himself. He played four years of college hockey at Bentley University. As a former player, who knows the price tag of hockey, he's trying to reduce the cost of playing for the future generation. He doesn’t just bring “entrepreneurial spirit” and “business management/Operations experience” to Restore, but his life experience from 18 years of playing hockey.


In 2010, founder of the Pond Hockey Classic, Scott Crowder, joined Spengler and Restore as the Executive Director. Crowder is no stranger to hockey either. As former University of Massachusetts-Amherst player and the son of former professional hockey player and college coach Bruce Crowder. Crowder has made an immediate impact since joining Restore. With his experience of establishing one of the largest pond hockey tournaments in America and his “Bringing Hockey Back to the Basics” attitude, he has helped Restore into becoming a household name.


Restore has spread the game and their word around the New England area, but they’re always looking for volunteers in other areas. Restore team member, Samantha Smith recently moved to Chicago for business. With Smith in the Chicago area, she is looking for local volunteers (psst...Blackhawks) and local events to help bring in more donations. With the spreading of Restore and more donations, they will be able to grow as an organization.


Now you're probably wondering how you can help.


Restore Hockey is based on several factors: Access, opportunity and affordability. You could also add clean to the list, too. You can bring these factors to a reality. Instead of having your children’s old equipment stink up your garage or basement, you can donate it to Restore Hockey. Before the equipment is donated to kids, families or organizations, it is cleaned and repaired. Once the equipment is fully restored (no pun intended) it is sent off as a chance for a child to fall in love with the great game of hockey.


If you don’t have any extra hockey equipment or it’s still in use, you can help Restore Hockey with a financial donation. With every $150 Restore buys a new equipment starter pack and then it’s donated to a child. Depending on the size of the equipment, Restore is open to helping all ages.


Not only is Restore giving you the chance to be a good citizen, but a fashionable one too. You don't need to be from the New England area or Chicago to rock these unique bracelets made out of genuine hockey laces. Restore gives you the opportunity to order their Restore Lace Bracelet on their website here. It's your chance to be the cool kid on the block, while supporting a good cause. All proceeds go to the support of their mission.


Donating equipment to children isn’t Restore’s only cause. They recently have partnered up with NHL Green. They collected used equipment at the 2012 Winter Classic in Philadelphia.


"Our ultimate goal is to keep equipment out of basements and out of landfills. All gear collected in Philadelphia will be returned back to the ice, right where it belongs,” Scott Crowder told NHL.com.


Other companies Restore has teamed up with include Boston Bruins Foundation, The Pond Hockey Classic, Hockey East, Sports-Wash, Earthtec, FMC Arenas, Backyard Hockey, Cullen Wealth Management Group, Bentley University Hockey, Pure Hockey, Backyard Ice and Global Hockey Loop.


Restore recently had a fund raising gala on February 3 for the opening day of the New England Pond Hockey Classic. The guest of honor was a shiny silver cup, Lord Stanley. You can see their upcoming event schedule on their website: Restorehockey.org.


Keep an eye out for upcoming events in Chicago on their website and right here! And don't forget to keep these things in mind: skates, helmets, sticks, gloves, pads... as well as donations, donations, donations...


If you want to help, you can email Samantha Smith at ssmith@restorehockey.org.


If you do have equipment, you can email info@restorehockey.org.

Don't Call It A Recap: At Least SEEEEAABBBRROOOKK Scored...

The Hawks lost to the Avalanche 5-2, but recapping the game would just be depressing.
So let's just enjoy these two photos from the game:

First, we have just some excited fans and one really excited fan.


Second, we have a moment between Seabs and Duncs after Seabrook's goal.

Let's analyze this for a second. Seabrook is down on one knee with his arms around Keith's neck.

I can't imagine what Seabrook would be asking Keith?

Hope these photos cheered you up!

Don't worry Hawks fans we will get through this.

Like the old saying goes

"If Britney Spears can make it through 2007, I can make it through this day."

I just hope we don't see Sharp shaving off his hair with a skate blade.

Or Toews attacking a Hawks reporter's car with a hockey stick.

It Never Happened...


Aren't West Coast games the best? *silence*

Nothing is better than staying up late to watch the Blackhawks play. I loved staying up late on a weekday to see them get beat by the Canucks in overtime. Or how about watching Gagner have an historic eight point game in their 8-4 loss against the Oilers. Unfortunately, I missed them lose to the Flames 3-1 on Friday. I figured if I never recapped the games they never happened. Or that's just my excuse for being lazy with the blog.

Hopefully, they can keep an avalanche from happening tomorrow night when they play Colorado. I think the Hawks just need Coach Q to tell them "you is kind, you is smart, you is important" when they wake up in the morning. The Help is a great movie, by the way.

-Kane:"You try to be the same person you really are. I love to have fun, I love to play hockey and I love to try to make people smile and get the fans out of their seats.

Joey at Media Day (cutest video ever)
(BHTV)

-Random Thoughts of the Skills Competition:
Did anyone else think it would have been more appropriate if the Sedins came out together for intros? Just to be extra creepy. Kane was mic'd up during the skills competition or he was just talking to himself on the ice. Karlsson beat Hossa in the fastest skater competition. Hossa was just answering Karlsson's prayer, since Karlsson prayed that he wanted to win fastest skater. Not only did the Blackhawks have God representing them at the All-Star game, but they also had a superhero. SUPER KANE. Hossa brought out a red cape and glasses for Kane. Forever a classic moment. All of a sudden kane scored and started to explode pucks (watch video). Kane's response to the exploding puck: "I got too strong." *insert the Superman theme song*

-Random Thoughts of the All-Star Game by @QueenCrash:
Doc: "Pavel Datsyuk is working some magic." JR: "Pavel Datsyuk is magic." We see Iggy smiling and somewhere an angel got its wings, perhaps multiple sets. Henrik Lundqvist jokingly yells at Marian Hossa not to pass to Marian Gaborik, that he has enough goals already. Carey Price is mic'd up in net and I'm having a hard time squealing with laughter. He trades banter with JR in the booth and somehow they start talking about the rodeo...
Carey Price makes a nice glove save and admits to checking his save out on the jumbotron: "I won't lie, I was checking myself out on the big screen." All four goalies have allowed three goals apiece now. Game is tied 6-6. Drake takes the stage to perform. Giroux attempts to trip his own teammate, Hartnell, who will donate $1,000 to charity for every #HartnellDown that occurs during the ASG. Seguin on the Sedins: "I think we smiled at each other for the first time." The game ends with Team Chara beating Team Alfredsson 12-9. Tim Thomas gets his fourth straight ASG win. Marian Gaborik is announced as the MVP.

Weekend Update:


Friday night's game was full of familiar faces and some unfamiliar hair. Versteeg let his long locks flow during warm-ups, see footage here.

The Hawks and Panthers went to 4 on 4 with a high stick on Frolik and Seabrook for tripping. Former Hawk Madden returned the trip resulting in a Blackhawks power play (insert Gene Honda's voice). Kane to Toews for the Hawks first goal 1-0. Toews extended his scoring streak to four games.

Ellerby put Shaw into the boards resulting in a Blackhawks power play (insert Gene Honda voice). I can almost hear Sandstorm playing in the background. With about 16 seconds left, Keith ended the period 2-0 with a power play goal.

Kane finally scored for the Hawks 3-0. I've never seen the word "finally" used so many times at once. Brunette almost had more fun than blondes, but his goal was waved off (high stick). Florida got their pity goal and the Hawks won 3-1.

Stars of the game:
1. Kane
2. Toews
3. Keith

Also, check out Kat's Excellent Adventure on Runs On Duncan.


Unfortunately, it did not snow enough in Chicago to keep the Hawks from traveling to Nashville. Last night's game vs the Predators sucked. Hossa/God showed the only light in the game with two goals. The Hawks tiny winning streak ended. The Hawks are now in third place in the division. The worst part of the game came when Toews didn't return. He's day to day with with an upper body injury, read more here.

And Trotz still looks like Tweedledum and Tweedledee.

Shaw Facts:

Bolland says "It's Shaw bitch." Smith calls him "Andrew Fucking Shaw." Hossa refers to him as "God." #ShawFacts

The Blackhawks won 6-2 against the Sabres last night. Toews scored two goals and both were on the power play. The rookies continued to dominate with goals by Hayes and Shaw. Bolland and Hossa also had goals against Buffalo. Toews has scored in three straight games, while Shaw's fourth goal in four consecutive games started #ShawFacts on Twitter. The hashtag is still going strong now, just click #ShawFacts.

Update: "the PP was huge."

I know, I know. I'm terrible. From this moment on the blog will go back to its regular scheduled programing. Here's a quick recap on the past few games:

Blackhawks 5, Wild 2:
Bolland: "the PP was huge."

Blackhawks 2, Red Wings 3:
It was a Saturday morning cartoon, I mean game, of Hawks vs Wings. Detroit took a 2-0 lead on the power play and then Bertuzzi on a breakaway. Shaw gave the Hawks their first goal of the game. Then with about a minute left... HAWKS TIED THE GAME 2-2. You can thank God, thank Hossa for that goal. However the excitement and capitalization ended quickly. It was basically just the Wings and Crawford on the ice for overtime, which led to Detroit's 3-2 over the Hawks.

Blackhawks 4, Sharks 3:
It was all about Shaw in the Hawks win over the Sharks. He scored the game winner. It's about time Shaw was given a nickname. Here are several options provided by Twitter:
-"Shaw-shank/Shawshank"
-"Shawk Wave" (appropriate for last night)
-"Shawzer"
-"Shawesome"

2012 All-Stars:

God, Baby Jesus and Wolverine were named NHL All-Stars, so congrats to
Hossa, Kane and Toews!

Meatballs For Everyone


Stalberg scored his first career hat trick last night against the Blue Jackets. Invisible hats are being thrown everywhere. With Stalberg's hat trick, Bolland and Ben Fucking Smith the Blackhawks beat the Blue Jackets 5-2.

With Sharp out for a few weeks, it was time for the guys to step up. Seabrook took the first step by wearing the scarlet letter in honor of Sharpy. WHORE! Who doesn't love a good scarlet letter joke? No one? Okay... moving on. Stalberg now has to be the handsome one and the one to score goals in Sharp's absence. He fulfilled both last night.

There was a scare to start the game. Toews was hit in the head by a Keith slap shot. The replay of the hit didn't look too pretty, but it's Toews we're talking about. He came right back out to play. Toews is either super human like we all expected or God answered our prayers. It's good thing we've got Hossa on the team. Thank God. Thank Hossa.

Quick hits:
-Stars of the game: 1. Stalberg 2. Hossa 3. Who cares?
-Douche of the game: Boll
-It's Bolly Bitch
-It's Ben Fucking Smith

It's time to bring this back: HAT TRICK BOOYAH! (2:04)

A Day In The Five Minute Life Of A Zamboni Rider

My Journey Inside The Glass:









(The other zamboni rider didn't show up, so my brother got to ride too)





That's the most snow Chicago has seen all winter.
