Now the trade deadline has come and gone, and the Chicago Blackhawks rolled out what, for the most part, will be the troops they send to the front line come playoff time. They welcomed the Carolina Hurricanes into Fort Kickass and, well, kicked ass. The Hurricanes were sent off to continue their Garfunkelian trek through […]
Tonight we had several guests… @JulieDiCaro @Philosophy_of_E @ToniMacAttack @RegressedPDO @NHLHistoryGirl @RunsOnDuncan Along with Hockeenight women Krista and Casey. We discuss sexism in sports social media, as well as in society in general. We cover where we’ve been able to make some progress, as well as where we still need to go. We also discussed racism […]
Dear Diary, I’ve been sitting shiva for Patrick Kane’s season for four days now. Those Chevy Drives Chicago and BMO Harris commercials hurt me. On the upside, I’ve watched two llamas run away in suburban Phoenix, which could be taken as some kind of weird metaphor for the Coyotes. But then Leonard Nimoy died, so […]
So the Blackhawks began life without Patrick Kane tonight, heading down to Heaven’s Waiting Room to face the Florida Panthers, the team who put them in the Kaneless state Tuesday. Florida made waves earlier in the day by trading for Jaromir Jagr, who has reached the age where he can be described as “spry”. How […]
The Blackhawks played the Colorado Avalanche at Fort Kickass tonight. It didn’t go the Blackhawks way, as they shit the bed in the third period and lost 4-1. This was not a fun third period, so if you set your DVR to record the replay, just skip that shit. If you want an actual recap […]
It was Braindead Meatball Christmas at the United Center tonight, with the Blackhawks hosting the “Magic Man” Pavel Datsyuk and his lowly band of miscreants, the Detroit Red Wings. Finally, those “Detroit Sucks!” chants emanating from the gaping pork-holes of UC super fans would have actual meaning instead of just garnering side-eye and requests […]
You see that score in the header? You see that photoshop up there? That means tonight’s Puckcast counts as a recap. So Fork, CT, Krista and returning guest Lobster Boy talked about the game for 14 seconds and then got down to the business of celebrating Hockeenight’s 40th Anniversary:
If ever a team could be considered the root marm of the NHL, it is the New Jersey Devils. There is absolutely nothing, and I mean nothing worth watching about this team. They are bad enough to be on the fringe of the McDavidstakes, but not comically bad enough to be entertaining. Sure they’ve got the Ghost of Jaromir Jagr, but has ceased to be interesting. The Devils can’t even blame their badness on injuries, because all their injured players are terrible. Bryce Salvador? Ryane Clowe? Cripes.
