FACEOFF: 11:30am Central



If the Hawks are going to snap out of this midseason malaise (if indeed that’s what it is) in the next week or so, they’re going to have to do it against the Central Division. Seven of the next eight games — all in the next two weeks, mind — come against the Central residents (and it’s a whole lot of Predators, but we’ll worry about that on Monday). It kicks off with a return brunch engagement against the somewhat resurgent Red Wings. It’s as resurgent as an elderly squad can be, like that half-pep your dad gets in his step for a couple minutes after a big shit. Or is that just mine?

Oh, the lovely NHL Game of the Week. I can’t imagine how much this messes with the players habits, seeing as how hockey players are such creatures of habit. Instead of the normal morning skate, afternoon nap and whatever else they must get up to before a game, they get to just basically wake up and play. And it breaks the habits for all of us as well. Luckily for me, my favorite bar decided to open up early. God bless ’em.
