THE CAPTAIN GOES AU NATURALE: Blackhawks 6, Senators 5
Jonathan Toews is all that is man.
Tonight the Chicago Blackhawks fell behind the Ottawa Senators 4-2 before The Captain took over the game, notching the natural hat trick after Nikolai Khabibulin left a big brown streak in his crease, leading the Hawks to a 6-5 win.
Let's get to this:
Six straight games with at least one power play goal? Are you shitting me? The Hawks' most glaring weakness last season has suddenly become a strength. Whoever told them they're allowed to move around during the man advantage, kudos.
Toews. I know we usually just stipulate he's in "The Good", but tonight he was extra special. Three goals and an assist, just a great game.
Fandio.com - tonight we had a live gamecast that had upwards of 20 people at varying times. A lot of fun, and we got to talk to a lot of friends of the site.
Marian Hossa. He scored his 100th goal as a Chicago Blackhawk tonight, snapping his Wrister of Death through Craig Anderson's wickets. He also had a pair of helpers. He's good at hockey.
Andrew Shaw. The little rodent had two goals. He's starting to get going, and with him and Bryan Bickell skating and scoring together, the Hawks' depth is going to make the rest of the league's lives miserable.
Cause and effect. After Ottawa scored their fourth goal the Hawks switched to Corey Crawford and a brunette pulled down the front of her shirt, revealing her bra and buoyancy. Immediately thereafter, Toews began his evisceration of the Senators. Ladies, I don't think I have to tell you what needs to be done during every Hawks' home game from here on out. Guys, who knows...maybe hanging brain gets somebody else going.
The second period. Khabibulin was the cherry on top of the shit sundae in that period, but everyone was sleepwalking through almost the entire period. It wasn't until CC and DDs showed up that the team got their collective fecal matter assembled.
Christ, Khabi. He's been rotten corybungo the last two games. Looks like Antti Raanta is going to get introduced to the NHL sooner than anyone really would have liked.
Next up for the Hawks is a Saturday afternoon tilt in Winnipeg. Because nobody should have to spend Saturday night in Winnipeg
