  1. 12/14 Hawks vs. Jets

    Agreed. Hopefully they have that kind of effort and execution a lot more this season and in the playoffs.
  2. 12/14 Hawks vs. Jets

    Passing was very good and so was the compete level to get to pucks to make those nice passes.
  3. 12/14 Hawks vs. Jets

    This was the best game they played for all 60 minutes since the 1st game of the season. Very impressive team effort. Lots of good stuff.
  4. 12/12 Hawks vs Panthers

    Maybe we've found a 1st line. 20-19-12 seem to be finding some chemistry and that's a beautiful thing. Again, it wasn't pretty and the PP was down right ugly, but they found a way to get 2 points and that's all that matters. 3 in a row - WOOT!
  5. 12/10 Hawks vs Yotes

    Well it wasn't exactly a stellar performance but all's well that ends well. Gotta make hay while the sun shines and beating Arizona certainly qualifies as that. Oh, and it's sure nice to have CC back between the pipes. He kept us in the game when Arizona was getting 2 or 3 good scoring chances for every one of ours.
  6. 12/10 Hawks vs Yotes

    For as good as the passing game last game - it is just the opposite tonight. Passes are either off the mark of there bouncing off the stick like a superball. Saad can't receive a pass to save his life - it's like he has no feeling in his hands.
  7. 12/08 Hawks vs Sabres

    Checking the box score - Hawks had 51 shots on goal and the Sabres blocked 31 shots. The Sabres had 28 shots on goal and the Hawks blocked 5 shots ... only 5 shots? Whats' with that?
  8. 12/08 Hawks vs Sabres

    I had to work tonight so I was only able to to kinda keep one eye on the game - so I didn't get a good sense of how they played. Obviously a win is big - regardless if they played well or not. Man, is Forsling turning into a nice player. Hopefully Q replaces Keith on the PP with Forsling. Rutta and Murphy playing pretty well too. With Franson being out in the 3rd - maybe Kempny will get back in.
  9. 12/06 Hawks vs Caps

    Well they played better tonight and still got blown out. As Dandy Don used to sing - "Turn out the lights, the party's over".
  10. 12/06 Hawks vs Caps

    Oh man. Terrible goal. We'll see what kind of mental fortitude Forsberg has ... and Ovechkin scores to make it 0-3. Berube - welcome to the game.
  11. 12/06 Hawks vs Caps

    Not a bad start to the game for the Hawks - just be sure everyone is focused on defense first.
  12. 12/06 Hawks vs Caps

    Kane hanging out by the blue line instead of playing defense and Backstrom is wide open in the slot. All 5 guys on the ice need to be engaged defensively - not waiting for an outlet pass to go on offense.
  13. 12/03 Hawks vs Kings

    Checking the stats - another period of only 3 shots on goal for the Hawks, and they had a 3 SOG against Dallas. I would call this more pathetic execution than effort. Again, missed passes and bobbled reception result in missed opportunities and the Hawks had another period of missed opportunities. I'm at a loss as to why the Hawks are so bad at the passing game. One of these games I will keep track of missed passes by the Hawks and their opponent and I will be surprised if the Hawks don;t have 2 or 3 times more missed passes than their opponent.
  14. 12/03 Hawks vs Kings

    The pass was right there for Schmaltz to one-time it and he decided to settle it down and then take the shot. Hopefully the light bulb finally goes on over Q's head and he realizes Schmaltz is not what Kane needs on his line. Kane needs a LW that can and will shoot the puck. Schmaltz does neither - he can't shoot and he won't shoot. Put Schmaltz with line mates he can buzz around and make passes to, which is the entirety of his game. DeBrincat should play with Kane and Anisimov. I like that Q put Hayden up with Toews and Saad - hopefully he keeps him there.
  15. 12/03 Hawks vs Kings

    Still can't catch a pass clean'y. Looks like last night.
