Everything Else

One of the pleasures of a 29 game point streak was the lack of hockey cliches used to describe the Hawks poor play.  Flat, lifeless, fatigued, blah, blah, blah.  Well no more.  After a Edmonton 4 goal first period, all the cliches are back in full force.  Luckily, you won’t find that here.  Rather, let’s break down the first 4 goals to help show why the Hawks were down four after 20 minutes.

Sorry, couldn’t figure out how to get an umlaut into the title. I can do it here though if you want me to make up for it. ü. There you go.

Edit: Umlaut achieved.

The Hawks try to push it to five tonight in Ohio, against the carcass that the other carnivores in the Central have been scavenging off for years. And that will probably remain the case this year as well, as the Blue Jackets continue the bobbing for Seth Jones competition they are in.

Everything Else

Well, as we know this has gotten all jumbled a bit, but we’re still going to hold strong with what we see the lineup shaking out as. As long as we get to everyone, we should be ok. Anyway, we’ll do this one and then later today the extra/rookie forwards who might pop up during the season. Then off to the defense and goaltending and such. Who’s excited?!

To it, then:
