    3/16 Hawks vs Habs

    Bob, sometimes you take some of my comments too literally. When Crow came back and had a few goals scored on him, I made the comment that he might be seeing two or three pucks coming at him by way of "explanation". In today's world of being PC, it might have been a cruel and insensitive comment, but it was intended to be a humorous comment for those who can still appreciate humor in its black form. It was not intended to say that Crawford is and was a lousy goalie. It is also possible that he had some lingering effects of his nasty concussions; or was just not fully used to playing his usual game in his first few back. But, I know your "one puck" comment was a dig at me, which is fine. I guess it is your own "black humor". What goes around, comes around. But, I still think Crawford is a great goalie and that is my official position without any humorous intent. Just to let you know, we are on the same page about him.

    When you were in a deep hole, every inch closer to the surface counts.

    Correct, I was just using AWOL to refer to his absence. Blues lost today in a shootout and the Stars are currently down 2-0 to the Nucks with 14 minutes left in the 2d. I would like to see the Nucks hang on as the Hawks can take care of them themselves tomorrow night. P.S. The Wild just lost in OT to the Isles, but managed to get one point----better than two. The Nucks managed to deprive the Stars of one point with a shoot out win.

    Yeah, separating them has not done much good. But, I guess the coach wants to see if he can get two good scoring ilnes. My guess is that they will be reunited soon. Sikura needs to be thinking about another career. Hope he got his degree in some field where there is employment.

    I knew the Habs would be up for this for the reasons you said. However, my thinking is that the Hawks are also gunning for a wild card spot and have not thrown the season away. I expected a bit more of a showing from them. As said, they simply could not get the puck out of their own end and keep it there for awhile. It was much better than how they looked against the Bolts when Tampa came to the UC. That looked like the NHL versus peewees. But, altho the Habs did not outclass them as much, they still kept the Hawks bottled up and that is what upset me about the Hawk play last night.

    I noticed that. Maybe they have turned the corner. Is Buff still AWOL?

    Well, now that he has those out of the way, he can get them the rest of the 11 wins in a row they need, or most of them.

    Well, it is pretty obvious that Crow is back to seeing only one puck coming at him, instead of two or three. Incredible performance by him. As for the rest, there was no ability for the forwards or the dmen to skate the puck out of their own end; or pass it out of there. There was no ability to keep the puck down in the Habs' end of the ice. The occasional 2 on 1s were horrible. The Montreal forwards did a great job of backchecking and keeping the puck in the Hawks' end. But, the win was good; the way it was achieved, except for Crawford, was pretty bad. They will need better performance from the forwards if they are going to win the rest of their games. Crow can't do it all.

    While the Leafs were not exactly in don't give a damn mode, that is what it was compared to the desperate situation of Les Habs. They are currently 2 points out of the last wild card spot in the EC. They will be brining it tonight as best as they can and the Hawks will have to be good to work out of their own desperate situation. Only 6 behind the Yotes and the Avs cooperated last night and got beat by the Ducks. So, it is an opportunity for the Hawks to pick up another 2 points and get this show further on down the road. Bring us a win, HIM.

    Thanks for getting me right with the Lord. I thought it was at the UC. What the hell, let's beat them anyway. Hope you will enjoy the game!!!!

    There is no question that Moore "shifts/bends" the net. However, it appears to settle right back down on its moorings. While this is a good try to provide solid evidence that Delia did not intentionally dislodge the net, I would still go with inconclusive evidence and the call on the ice stands. I would not want to be the ref in that situation. How the hell is he supposed to know which way to go? Maybe if the net gets dislodged by a goalie putting his back into the crossbar, I might always go with intentional dislodging, but when it happens with a move like Delia's, it is much harder to know.

    No, but I am celebrating. They have won two of the 14 in a row I predicted to end the season. Only 12 more to go. By the way, I took a look at the Yote schedule and it is not as easy as I thought it was going to be, which I thought would involve playing the bad teams in the Pacific mucho times. What they really have is a nasty EC road trip, including the Bolts and Isles. They have several games against good Central teams, including another one at the UC against none other than the Hawks. Even the Wild does not have a really easy schedule. I would not label the Hawks' remaining games as easy, but it is manageable. By the way, the Oilers are getting whacked by the Devils 5-2 late in the 2d. So, there is still some hope.

    Exactamundo. Mucho, mucho space with no Leaf around. It would have been much better to skate as far as possible along the boards or by the faceoff circle and do something better than just fire it around the boards from behind the goal line. Beer league error!!!

    Yeah, the Hawk defense will get a test tonight. We'll see if it was just the weak Stars/Yotes that were responsible for those 1 goal games; or whether there has actually been a resurgence in the Hawk defense. As Granada said, the Loafs should be pumped and angry. But, the Hawks should be desperate and ready to prove they are a playoff team. I am pretty up for this game. I hope the Hawks do well and win. Keep in mind that last game all of the Hawks' top scorers had goals. That was pretty cool. Do it again, boys.
