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

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 02:23:00 AM

    Today at 02:23:07 AM
  • redbeard82: auction or snake, i'd feel much more confident in
    Today at 02:23:17 AM
  • Orange Country: esp since Me, Corey, Brent, Michael, Gareth, Andy, and Brad have participated in BTN already
    Today at 02:23:36 AM
  • redbeard82: but it's all good...it'll just mean some wheeling and dealing to fine tune i'm sure

    Today at 02:26:07 AM
  • redbeard82: for sure
    Today at 02:26:49 AM
  • Brent: I'm going to take a different approach in EGDL then I took in BTN.
    Today at 02:27:53 AM
  • Orange Country: good luck
    Today at 02:36:47 AM
  • Orange Country: Smoking Gun got the :CHC: open in a free league here and the team is in pretty good shape
    Today at 02:38:03 AM
  • Brent: Looked like Machida broke a rib on Dalloway 30 seconds into the fight.
    Today at 02:46:04 AM
  • Orange Country: u lookin to buy or sell in MB
    Today at 02:46:59 AM

    Today at 02:57:15 AM
  • Orange Country: sooner is :SD: GM
    Today at 02:57:29 AM
  • Brent: cool
    Today at 02:57:31 AM
  • Brent: Yeah, I know.  I bought into SD to eventually be the majority owner and the GM, but Ranger Danger sold 51% to Dan.  I was kinda ticked how that whole scenario went down.
    Today at 02:58:37 AM
  • Orange Country: what happened
    Today at 02:59:56 AM
  • Brent: Don't know.  I bought part of the team with the understanding that I would have first dibs should more come available.  Then it was sold behind my back.
    Today at 03:01:47 AM
  • Brent: Under the "Owner can do whatever he wants"
    Today at 03:02:11 AM
  • Brent: I don't really care now, but when I happened I was ticked.
    Today at 03:02:30 AM
  • Orange Country: I see
    Today at 03:03:33 AM
  • Orange Country: that sucks
    Today at 03:04:29 AM
  • Orange Country: u own :PHI: and :COL: right
    Today at 03:05:49 AM
  • Brent: Yeah.  When I get some more $, I'll increase my owner % in the Phillies first, then the Rockies.
    Today at 03:07:07 AM
  • Orange Country: I wonder what your team in BTN and others will do about your low cap
    Today at 03:09:10 AM
  • Orange Country: I mean your kinda stuck
    Today at 03:09:20 AM
  • Brent: I'll more than likely move a player for a few cheaper lower level players.  I don't see me moving Trout.  I kinda screwed myself by going too high, but I'm kinda glad I went too high on Trout and not too high on Myers which was my other plan.
    Today at 03:12:15 AM
  • Orange Country: gonna be lots of trades in there
