Hawks tie record
« on: February 20, 2013, 09:03:10 AM »
Last night the Blackhawks beat the Canucks in OT to tie an NHL record of 16 straight games with at least one point to start a season.  This is the best start in Chicago's history and on Friday night they will have a chance to take the NHL record. 

"It's a remarkable start," coach Joel Quenneville said. "We're very happy and pleased. Guys should be proud of the achievement and where they're at, especially in a 48-game season. It puts us in a real good spot."

Chicago faces a tough Sharks team on Friday for the 2nd time in a week.  They could be without Hossa who needed help getting off the ice after getting hit in the back of the head by Jannik Hansen. 

"It's great to start, but that's all it is: It's a start," said Ray Emery, who made 29 saves last night. "You want to see it at the end of the year, that's when it counts."

Hawks tie record
« Reply #1 on: February 20, 2013, 10:50:53 AM »
Really thought the streak may come to an end when Vancouver was up 1-0 in the game, but Chicago has found a way to fight back in every game. They have so many threats to score and make plays. Their checking line is great and draws penalties for the power play.

Losing Hossa for an extended period of time could really hurt, but I think they could pull off a couple more before they lose.

Great start for them!

    Today at 12:57:36 PM
  • ldsjayhawk: Eric's right.  I can't believe that.  That guy had been there since the beginning.
    Today at 12:57:52 PM
  • ldsjayhawk: I always feel in Bush League that I would rather have guys in their favorite teams.  I guess I hope that they'll be more likely to stick around.

  • Eric: Hard to get Boston
    Today at 01:08:15 PM
  • ldsjayhawk: I'll bet Boston is the hardest to get.
    Today at 01:09:48 PM
  • Eric: Yeah they are, oh well. Fun to use other teams

  • Eric: Usually if I want them I will ask the Boston owner if they wanna switch logos

    Today at 01:16:26 PM
  • SlackJack: Back to you Norryaa
    Today at 01:21:14 PM
  • ldsjayhawk: I don't always change my lineups daily.  I often will set it up at the beginning of the week.  It's a little more work, but if I know I won't have time.
    Today at 01:21:36 PM
  • Eric: Exactly
    Today at 01:22:58 PM
  • ldsjayhawk: norrya, how involved do you like to be up front?  I found that Armchair didn't really require daily changes as much.  That may be because I had a lot of injuries last season though.
