Kings are a very good home team, so it could be 2-2 coming up

I think being down 3-1 to the Wings (a division rival) was exactly what the Hawks needed to go all the way to the cup!

 

Along the way every championship team has that moment where either you strive and overcome or you fall by the wayside.

 

Coming back in 3 very close (even games  5 was close for all but like 10 minutes of Hawks domination).

 

That was a very tough series for the team and their Captain, just the sort of thing that will fuel them past LA with relative ease, and into the cup finals with a lot of momentum.

 

I think the Kings were riding a hot goaltender and are just not getting enough scoring all season and the post season!

 

The only line I see giving the Hawks trouble is the Penner - Carter - Toffoli (is that spelled right, prob not!).

"A wise man once told me, ‘Don’t argue with fools. Cause people from a distance can’t tell who is who'." Jay Z, Takeover

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.
“It's real straightforward. If you don't do it right, you're not happy here." Babcock

Its got nothing to do with "puck luck". The Hawks were playing like crap at the beginning of the last series. They have since found their game. If the Wings got a do-over and played them again the series would be over in 4 or 5 games now.

 

Ah, yeah it does.  It was tied in OT.  We could have easily scored and moved on.

Hawks and Pens are 2 best teams in hockey and have been all year...we will see how that pans out for both in a few weeks.

Wings woke the Hawks up. Hawks crusied thru reg season and playoffs... Remind ya of any Wings teams.

Lets not forget, Hawks had a goal taken away in game 3 which really prolonged the series imo.

Hawks and Pens are head and shoulders above rest of league this year but they have to earn cup.

I hate both those teams AND we will
Hear all the talk of Dynasty blah blah if either Wins cup

Hawks had their one tuff series now will cruise into Finals over the Kings.

All this talk that we woke the Hawks up is silly. They were better in games 3 and 4 that they lost then game 6 that they won. We really passed away fame 6. We're better then the Kings but prolly were too banged up to win 2 more rounds.

Kings had no problem with being down to St. Louis 2-0, but Chicago's a different team.

Darryl Sutter confirming what is fairly obvious: Mike Richards not playing tonight (concussion)


Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

Thought it was league policy to suspend the offending player for same amount of time as injury? Why Bolland still suiting up?

 

They also wait until blood drawn/seriousness of injury to determine penalty/suspension. This is partially tongue in cheek because I detest that method of punishment, however, since it exists, why do Hawks get off scott-free?

As much as everyone should be going for the Kings in this series and them being like perfect at home great.

 

The unfortunate thing is they are going to have to win at least 1 in Chi town to win this series.

 

Sad but true.



AND really bad goal to give up in the last minute.

Instead of suspensions, I think Shanny should get to do whatever the offender did, right back at him. I want to see him smash Keith in the mouth with an Easton, live on NHL Tonight, just before the anthem.

no way Keith gets suspended. the league has an excuse to make it up to the hawks after the game 7 incident.
