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).

It me, the hockey writing guy. Apparently the Blackhawks have been playing hockey this whole time. And as some sort of prank, they’ve been doing so with Brandon Mashinter. Jesus, is that right? Brandon Mashinter? Ah well, here goes nothing. THE GOOD: The second line was fun at least. They were on the ice […]
So…that happened. Somehow, we doubted them. A team that’s mostly floundered since losing it’s leading scorer, that went 1-4 in a 5 game stretch against non-playoff teams. A team that escaped Winnipeg by the skin of its teeth last night and playing the 2nd of back to backs against a the surging DAMNHELLASS KINGS who […]
Fresh off what became an eventful All Star weekend (thanks, #drunj Alex Ovechkin), the Blackhawks kicked off the Disney Trip with a west coast visit. First on the list: the Kings, who’d been rather meh lately. Add to this the news that Mike Richards was sent to the Manchester Monarchs for also being meh, and […]
So, that was…satisfying. Seriously, I’m glad the Hawks beat the Kings tonight, as it capped off a 5-1 road trip against some damn good teams (and Edmonton) but it’s cold comfort that the Hawks couldn’t put together a dominating performance like this against the Kings back in May. But that’s water under the bridge, […]
For five periods the Western Conference Finals appeared to be sort of a mismatch – until they didn’t. Did that really happen? Things were going so well until a puck thrown toward the net on the tail end of a shift hit Justin Williams’ foot and dry heaved in between Corey Crawford’s pads. Just like that, the most dangerous lead in hockey was cut to a lousy goal. You know the rest.
So the Blackhawks and Kings are tied at one game apiece. They’ll fly to Los Angeles and try to figure out a winner for game three. But right now all the hockey fans in the world will tell you the Los Angeles Kings lead the series 1-1. Just like the Wild led the Hawks 2-2 in the second round. Just like the Blues won the first round two games to none.
