Friday Night Fights: Main Event at the Garden
How do we celebrate one year of Hockeenight?
With a kickass fight, that's how.
But first, a quick trip around the internets.
The Fifth Feather brings us KRIVOKRASOV's finest moment. Krivo's second finest moment was steamrolling Mike Vernon in Game 3 of the 1995 Western Conference Finals.
Barry Rozner remembers the playoffs that just happened. To summarize: Dale Tallon is an idiot for signing Brian Campbell and Cristobal Huet, Joel Quenneville may be the smartest coach and most wonderful human being to ever live, and Patrick Kane might have had a hat trick to save the Hawks in the clinching game against Vancouver, but don't be fooled. Kane was worthless, and Barry would trade ten Patrick Kanes for a single Tyler Aarnason.
One of our favorite Cubs bloggers is moving in with Dave Kaplan or something.
I'm little late with the link, but I'd be remiss if I didn't point you towards Down Goes Brown's Stanley Cup Finals breakdown. You won't get analysis like this from Pierre McGuire.
Anyway, now that we've gotten that out of the way, let's get to the reason we're all here. It's been about a year (the actual start up date is now classified) since this blog came online, and since then, we've been mentioned in the New York Times (hockey blog) purchased by Haliburton, hosted numerousPuckcasts and reintroduced the world to Slats Radke. If that wasn't enough, we actually got to chronicle a pretty awesome Blackhawks season, which sure beats spending 40 weeks writing about how lousy the team is, how to fix it, and who to draft. So thanks to all our readers, our fellow Hawks bloggers (and those poor misguided souls who for some reason choose to blog about other teams) and most of all the team, for making it interesting this past year. Let's hope the season is a little bit longer in 2010.
And now, without further ado, a kickass fight between Bob Probert and Tie Domi at Madison Square Garden.
