After what can only be described as the most boring offseason in history (despite the creation of our brand new team), the NHL is finally almost ready to spring it’s patented brand of fun mixed with chronic stupidity on its unsuspecting fanbase (the NHL sounds a lot like Hockeenight now that I think about it).

Look, I’ll be the first to admit I’ve not been myself as of late. I apologize for the lack of any notable content in the recaps I have written, but a combination of work/car/having a cold issues have left me exhausted, and really not giving shit what the Hawks do on a nightly basis. The […]
On tonight’s Puckcast, Fork, CT and Krista meet up to talk about…well, I’m not sure what we even talked about. Pretty much that picture up top says it all, I think.
What with the team’s vomitous performance in Dallas on Saturday, you could have expected the Blackhawks to approach a tilt against the mostly irrelevant Carolina Staals Hurricanes like a cackle of hyenas would approach a wounded wildebeest: murderously, in concert and mercilessly. And you would have been wrong.
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 […]
Now that the Chicago Blackhawks have loaned the Stanley Cup to Los Angeles for the year, it’s time for us to once again peruse the various also-rans in the NHL before the Hawks get down to the formality of reclaiming the Cup in June 2015. We continue our series with the Carolina Hurricanes. Years ago, […]
Now that was fun. If you’ve been reminiscing about all those games last year where the Hawks made their opponents look like they were skating in quicksand, well, you got a treat tonight. The Blackhawks were flying tonight, and were all over the Carolina Hurricanes. There wasn’t much to it. Chicago was just faster and better. They generated a shitload of chances in the first two periods, but only took a 1 goal lead into the 3rd. Then, instead of playing tight in the final period, the Blackhawks kept attacking, and broke through with 3 goals against Carolina backup Justin Peters.
Well, it’s over. The Hawks 8 game road trip that started in the east, then swung through western Canada, down to San Jose mercifully ended with one last game in North Carolina tonight. Through the first two periods, it certainly looked like the Hawks were poised to make a good road trip a great one.
