#2410349 WCSF Game 4 GDT- Blackhawks 0 @ Red Wings 2 - (DET leads series 3-1)

Posted by Rhah on 23 May 2013 - 08:56 PM

Couldn't post at first intermission, thoughts so far.

 

Why can't we exploit their cherry pickers? They have almost 2 per play now...

 

3 uncalled penalties, 2 saw and called by Pierre. Another elbow to the head of Cleary, good job NHL stopping head targetting. A cross check by Rosival or maybe Stalberg that broke their stick on someone's back... and then the mugging of Franzen in front of the goal. Cross check uncalled.

 

Plus almost every time a wing is heading to the boards they are cross check/pushing them in the back...

 

Last thought, I don't see how they are complaining about clutch and grab when they have two people draped over Dats every time he touches puck, he has to pull off a miracle move, split the D every time or he loses the puck.

Couple of thoughts I have had last couple of days:

 

1. I am not sure why Toews is crying about being roughed up a bit... the majority of it is right in front of the net or on rebounds (some on the boards during forechecking, very little open ice hits)... Does he think because he is a star that he is entitled to his freedom while in front of the net trying to jump on rebounds? Have to give him credit that not a lot of stars muck it up in that area, but if he does he is going to get roughed up, sorry Jonny.

 

2. I really think the Anaheim forecheck (so far) has been better than the Hawks. And it really got us ready to handle the Hawks forecheck. Hawks may have more in them that they haven't shown us yet and it is possible for them to out forecheck what Anaheim threw at us, but I really think we got good practice in Anaheim.

Foster was on Chicago Radio today and basically said all your bullets except for flat out calling them bandwagon fans.

Just don't give Chicago free time outs like at the end of game 3.  

 

Came here to say same thing... be better if it helped the Wings when they needed a blow. But I understand its hard to not want to throw it after a huge Wings goal.

Do we need to finance this guy and his son to come to game 4 too?

So far a Hawks caller today had the gall to call Dats' laser beam over Crawford's right shoulder a soft goal. And they want Crawford out, hahaha... Pasha is only one of the top players in the league.

 

Lot of talk about the interference call, which I probably agree with however I also believe it was a deserved make up call for the no call on Franzen boarding. They had Cotsonika from yahoo on (who apparently covered Detroit before?) and he said it was a bad call off for a goal however he had the smarts in the very next breath to say there were lots of bad calls including the no call on Franzen which if it was a penalty would have not allowed Kane to score.

 

They think the no goal broke their momentum, but without Kane goal to break the shutout, they might not have had that momentum.

 

That is my Chicago radio report so far today... waiting on McNeil.

 

 

For sure! Totally agree. But saying what you just said is a lot more humble and a lot less jinx-ified than the posts before mine!!!

 

I guess my "hahaha" was too much for you, I will try to refrain from the laughter in future posts. Nothing else in the post was any more jinx worthy than our normal ribbing of Chicago fans or sports radio.




#2408792 Hey Hawks fans....

I'd respect them more if they brought it up as an inconsistency of the refs when it followed a goal that should have been whistled dead before by a no call penalty. But, they are only acting like the refs have only been screwing them.

 

Also, the bitching about us roughing them up seems to fall flat too considering Bickell and Shaw have been hitting our guys in the head since game 1.

Yeah, I have to stop reading the HFBoards and actually read logical analysis. They are delusional and emotional over there, much like we would be if we lost.

I just can't stand them complaining about the refs when they are still getting more power plays than their opponent (not counting them thugging it up at the end, but during regular play). And there are a ton of no calls on the Hawks already.

Wow, resisting making an account on HFBoards, now they are bitching about the singing and octopi being thrown on the ice. Which I am actually annoyed with because if they weren't dumb Hawk's fans, they'd realize the stoppage of play actually helps their stars get a breather when they are triple shifting.

 

But hey, they just learned about the game of hockey in 2010, so gotta give them a break.

So, did CBC show the replay of Cleary losing his stick on that breakaway? NBC didn't and I want to make sure there was no shenanigans.

 

Also, the goal being waved off seems like a huge make up call by the refs for letting Kane walk down the ice with an injured guy.

 

So many missed cross checks and boarding calls though... refs need to wake up to the Hawk's thuggery.

So Edzo defines a cross check by the Hawk's as a push with two hands and a stick into a guys back that rides up his shirt is legal? I am sure it was a cross check if it was a Wing doing it to a Squawk.

Lmao at Eddie o, toews has the same skillet as dats? Really?

 

Toews has some skills that Pasha doesn't, like bitching about getting knocked around when he is hovering in front of the net.

Seems the theme on the Score radio today in Chicago is that even though Hawks lost one game don't get worked up (which makes sense, we all know that) however they keep harping on usually in a 7 game series the better team always wins and not to get worried.

 

Um, if that is almost always the case, then how come lower seeds beat higher seeds in 7 game playoff series? Idiots.

sigh, McNeil took day off today. I was really looking forward to listening to him on the radio.
