The Week That Was - 11/1/2013

10/26 - Blackhawks vs. Minnesota Wild - Loss 5-3

  • For probably the longest stretch in recent history, the Hawks were over 50% again at the dots. After starting slow, they have moved up to 13th in the league.
  • Seemed like every time the Hawks were able to claw back, the Wild would pot a quick tally.
  • Minus 2 for Deuce, Carter 7, and Kruger. Minus THREE for Kane.
  • The second goal was on Crawford, but he didn't have much help all around.
  • With another PP goal, the Hawks sit right in the middle of the pack at #13 in the league. I can dig that.
  • The Hawks PK, on the other hand, is league worst at 72.2%. Terrible!!!
Here are the video highlights:
10/28 - Blackhawks at Minnesota Wild - 5-1 Win
  • Nice to see our favorite mouth breather score against the team that drafted him.
  • Brad Mills and Jeremy Morin made their 2013 Blackhawks debuts in this game. Mills looks like a nice under the radar 4th liner find.
  • The only goal Crawford gave up was pretty much a 2-0, and Pominville had days to pick him apart.
  • Brandon Saad is a fucking beast. Even though his behind the back pass should have been intercepted, he made that play. The kid is all over the ice every night.
  • Pirri and Shaw took a beating at the dots, which led the Hawks to a team percentage of 43%.
  • Brookbank played a team low 9:10 but still ended up with a goal, a plus 2, 4 hits, and 10 PIMS.
Here are the video highlights:
10/29 - Blackhawks .vs Ottawa Senators - 6-5 Win
  • Four points, including a natural Hat Trick for El Capitan, more than make up for his 39% at the dots. He carried the team on his back. El coco grande.
  • In addition to Toews, Shock-n-Shaw had 2 goals, and Boss 81 chipped in three points.
  • Khabby was pretty damn awful, once again. His bad play helped bury the Hawks in a 4-2 deficit halfway through the second. All of those calling for Antti Raanta, hold your fucking hats on. Khabby makes far too much, in a tight salary cap year, to bury in the press box for a backup. They'll suffer as long as they can until they panic.
  • J-Mo, Jeremy Morin, played a team low 8:40 but still managed an assist and 3 shots.
