Hey Ya’ll! Hope your weekend went well and you were able to enjoy a reglation win last night.
On Friday there were six former ‘Hawks on the ice scoring five points, two goals and three assists.
Saturday saw eighteen former featherheads suit up to score one goal and nine assists for ten points. The two goalies went 1-0-1.
There were twelve former Blackhawks to play on Sunday scoring three goals and three assists for six points. I’d say overall the former ‘Hawks played pretty damn well lately. Good to see the current ‘Hawks pull out a game against a good Western Conference opponent. Enjoy!

The two points we needed. The injury we didn’t.
As is frequently the case, Blackhawks’ fans are faced with a good news/bad news headline following an important game against a Conference rival. The Blackhawks played a tight game, allowing only 23 shots on Corey Crawford in a 2 – 1 victory over Phoenix, but suffered what may be a back-breaking loss in Patrick Sharp if his injury proves to be serious.
With the bulk of the hockey headlines coming out of southern Arizona being about legal battles and ownership changes and Gary Bettman stomping his feet like a child being told he can’t have candy at the supermarket, it’s easy to forget that there’s actually a hockey team there.
A team that is in fourth in the Western Conference, nipping at the heels of Division leader San Jose. A team on a five-game winning streak. A team that has scored the seventh-most goals in the league, yet has not one single 20-goal scorer. Although with two of their players named Lauri and Adrian, I’m not sure how seriously we’re supposed to take them.
Corey Crawford was pulled less than half-way through the game against Dallas, giving up 3 goals on 10 shots. And it wasn’t his fault.
Last night twenty seven former Indian-head sweater wearers took the ice. Of the twenty seven there were three goalies that ended the day 1-1-1. The skaters produced five goals and four assists for nine points. There were three guys who recorded a goal as well as an assist.
Last nights game sucked, end of story, today is a new day and this weekend is a new weekend, forget about it and move on. Enjoy your weekend everyone!

I wish there was more time to celebrate these wins. After handing the San Jose Sharks their jock straps and a bus ticket on Monday night, it would have been great to sit back and savor the moment a little longer than just two days. But alas, there’s business to attend to, and tonight that business is in Dallas.
Very busy night for the former ‘Hawks last night, there was a total of three who took the ice. Of the three, only one scored a point, Tim Brent, which was an assist. He has had a nice little run over the last couple of games. I have included an update on Christobal Huet’s season overseas.
Stick around for Tim’s preview of tonight’s game against the Stars. We win we are golden, we lose, ehhh I don’t even want to think about that. He should have that up this afternoon. Enjoy your day and root on your boy’s in the Indian Head Sweaters Tonight in a “Must-Win” game.

Twenty two former featherheads took the ice last night. Three were net-minders who had a record of 2-1-0 on the night. The one loss came from the goalie playing in Ottawa. The other nineteen skaters scored nine points including three goals and six assists. Couple of guys who normally don’t tally goals scored the goals to get their fifteen second celebrations in. Enjoy.

What’s the best thing about Corey Crawford starting every game for the past month? The meatballs haven’t been able to voice their blind hatred for Marty Turco.
OK, OK … it’s not the best thing. Crawford’s 10-2-3 record and 2.66 goals-against average takes that title. But despite those numbers, I’m still going to lobby for him to don the baseball cap Thursday in Dallas.
Here’s part of the reason why:

Five former ‘Hawks were in action last night notching just one point on the board which was an assist by Tim Brent. The one goaltender was SHELLED, to say the least, in the 2nd period and didn’t even make it halfway through the game. Very good night for the men in the Red Sweaters.
Oh and at the game last night I counted and the ice crew had a total of 13:36 TOI, which is almost 4x if not 3x the amount of time David Koci averages every night. Haha. So it looks like we has sorted out that ordeal. Hope you enjoy todays edition!
