The Daily Phil Esposito (4/5/11)

"You guys let go of the wrong guy to the Sharks..."

There were four former Blackhawks who played Monday night. The one goalie was Antti Niemi who recorded another win making his record 34-17-6 on the season. The other three skates didn’t really do much, but Michael Handzus scored the only point with a second period goal on Niemi.

The Three Stars I guess look like this:

1st Star – Has to be Antti Niemi with his 34th win of the season
2nd Star – Michael Handzus had the only point
3rd Star – Ben Eager for not sucking.

"You guys miss me in Chicago yet?"

On Friday, eight former featherheads took the ice. The only point was a goal scored by Sammy Pahlsson against the Blackhawks in that pitiful effort of a game against the Jackets.

Saturday had nineteen former Blackhawks taking the ice scoring four goals and two assists for six points. The goalies went

There were also eight former ‘Hawks who played on Sunday scoring just one goal as the only point of the day. That came from Bryan McCabe.

Something new which I will be including into my posts from now on will be the Three Stars of the Night Former Blackhawk Style. This post will have the Three Stars of the weekend.
1st Star – Dustin Byfuglien – Reached a Career High in Goals this weekend.
2nd Star – Danny Cleary – Game Winning Goal in overtime Saturday.

Niemi Says no again...

The former Blackhawks came to play last night. They scored a total of twenty three points with twelve goals and eleven assists. April fools.

Now that we got the childish games out of the way, there were actually nineteen former featherheads to take the ice last night. Two of goalies combined for two wins, a shutout and 67 saves while the other lost his league leading thirty-first game of the season (That Drunk Guy). The sixteen skaters combined for three points including two goals and one assist. Two big games for teams in the West and the outcomes both favored the Hawks. However the one game that didn’t saw the Predators defeat the Avalanche for their eighth win in their past ten games.

"Finally I am playing up to my potential"

There were seven former Blackhawks to take the ice last night. They were all skaters and the four points they produced were all assists which came in the same game. There was a big game that affected the Western Standings which was the Ducks vs. the Flames, and there was also a humongous blowout. Read ahead for the details on how those two games affect the Blackhawks.

On Monday there were two former ‘Hawks who took the ice and didn’t do jack shit. Hence why yesterday there was not an Espo.

Last night however there were twenty four former Hawks to take the ice amassing four points on zero goals and four assists. The Hawks lost ground on a couple teams but luckily they didn’t fall out of the top eight because they couldn’t. Thank god… Lets go get the Blue Jackets…

"My head hurts from the excitement that I did something positive for once"

Six former Hawks took the ice on Friday with one of those being a goalie who recorded his second shutout of the year. The other five who were skaters provided two points, one of each a goal and an assist.

Saturday we had A COLIN FRASER SIGHTNING! as well as 22 other former featherheads to take the ice. The one goalie came away with another win helping his team stay in the top three in the west and the skaters scored two goals and two assists for a total of four points. Two injuries happened in games that could potentially help the ‘Hawks down the road. Keep your fingers crossed!

Last night there were ten former Blackhawks to play. Two were goalies with one losing on in regulation while the other lost in a shootout. The other eight skaters provided three points on one goal and two assists.

Let’s hope that the Hawks rebound tonight and stay tuned for Tim’s preview of tonight’s game.

"I'm Ugly"

There were twenty three former hawks to take the ice last night. The three goalies went 1-1-1 while the skaters only recorded three points, one was a goal the other two assists. Andrew Ladd had that goal. The games all went against the favor of the Hawks… Great. The ‘Hawks are now back to seventh in the West, the only good news is that they have played less games than all the teams in front of them

"Is he dead?" "I dunno poke him with a stick"

There were six former Blackhawks on the ice last night. One was a goalie who picked up his 3oth win of the season, the other five were skaters. They were only able to muster up three points, one goal and two assists. The goal was from Rene Bourque while the assists came from Danny Cleary and Benny Eager.

Jack Skille continued his suckfest as well. Great to see that on the ice at the UC. The Hawk’s played great last night, and it all looks promising… well it does right now.

There are three games tonight which can affect the Hawks in the standings. The biggest one is between 7th place Nashville and 8th place Anaheim. The winner jumps up to 5th place in the standings knocking the Hawk’s down to sixth. Hopefully this is only a two point game and the other team doest pick up a point. It’s a seven team race for the last five spots and 4th to 10th place are only separated by 6th points. The other games that affect the ‘Hawks tonight have the Blue Jackets taking on the Phoenix Coyotes in Arizona while the Sharks take on the Kings in LA. A King win moves them back ahead of the Blackhawks as well.

The only good news coming out of this is that all the teams besides Dallas will have played more games than the Hawks after tonight leaving some leeway. The Hawks have played 73 while the Kings, and Ducks will have played 74, the Preds will have played 75, and the Flames and the Coyotes will have played 76. The Hawks can catch all the teams in front of them, and will have the chance to put more points on them and finish in 4th. That’s if they come out and continue this dominating play. Big “IF”. Well without further a due, your daily Esposito.

Hopefully we knock the Red Wings out like little old "Danny Boy" Cleary was on this hit.

Last night there were just two hockey games, which doth went to a shootout. This was very damaging to the Blackhawks because of the four teams that played, three were Western Conference teams and they all received at least one point in the standings.

Between the two games there were only four former featherheads to take the ice. They were able to tally three points on one goal and a pair of assists. All three points came from the same game which played out to be a very interesting game as well. The Hawks hold their fate in their own hands right now, hopefully they can get the job done over the next two weeks. Check for Tim to have an update on the severity of Patrick Sharp’s injury later on. Keep your fingers crossed that it isn’t too serious…
