Can't believe Carcillo had the winner.

 

And they keep on winning. Who will be the first to beat them?

 

In regulation of course. Still impressive.

They have lost....just not in regulation.  We as Detroit fans know all to well that while NHL records are nice, they don't mean crap in the playoffs.  I am not trying to downplay the Hawks and their fans and "The Record," but not unless this equates to a Hoisting of the Cup, it's it means nothing. Much like 1996....

Chicago area has been pumped. Been in Chicago three times over the last month and been seeing a lot of Hawks jerseys. Was in a Jewel Osco this weekend and a young couple was ripping on me as I had my Wings hat on and the game was going on at the same time Sunday, I had to politely mention that 22 yrs of making the playoffs and numerous Stanley Cups, but I had to digress.

I was gonna say Eric Daze, but he was #55.

 

 

 

Remember when Big E had the puck alongside the boards.....

Hawks are looking good.  It's not so much thinking about the record streak, it's when you ask yourself who the hell is gonna take these guys down in a 7 game series at this point??  if LA plays like they did last year in the playoffs, that would probably be a WCF and a damn entertaining one.  St. Louis was my early pick, but injuries and inconsistent play and goaltending knocked them off that mantle.


This offseason will determine whether Ken Holland should still be employed with the Wings organization.

 

Please put Smith on the Power Play!

To be honest, I feel like the "regular season success means nothing" line rings a little hollow in this case. This is a very good team playing very good hockey. And they're not terribly far removed from their Cup run (in terms of both time and personnel), so they know, and have, what it takes to get it done in the playoffs.

Exactly.

I really don't like saying this, but it seems that this team is playing in the right division and the right conference in order to do what they're doing.

 

I don't think they have this record if they had to play LA/Anaheim/Phoenix more often. Or if they had to play Vancouver more.

 

They definitely wouldn't have this record if they played in the Atlantic or Northeast divisions.

 

Most of their games are against teams that can't really come close to matching up skill wise: Nashville can't score, we can't score, St. Louis can't defend or score this year, and Columbus is Columbus. Right place at the right time....

They play NHL teams night in and night out, the same as the other 29.

No matter how you look at it, their streak is extremely impressive but it will mean less if the Hawks fail win the Stanley Cup.

Of course wings fans know who he is, but hawks fans not so much.

Granted, but not every NHL team is as good as the others.

Finally coming to an end. Would've been over last weekend if Wings cleared the puck instead of shooting it over the glass. Regardless, all Chicago hate aside, this streak was AMAZING... here's to a 2nd half and playoff flop ;]

Avs?
Think for yourself. Question authority. Throughout human history as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are or where we are going in this ocean of chance, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open mindedness, chaotic, confused vulnerability to inform yourself.
