DON’T FORGET WE’RE AT THE BOTTOM LOUNGE FOR THIS ONE TONIGHT! 1375 W. LAKE ST.

Always nice to remember why you put up with the slog that the NHL season can sometimes turn into, and the Hawks will obviously get a reminder tonight when they step onto Garden ice tonight. As you may have read from everyone and their mother, the Hawks return to the site of their latest triumph tonight to face what has only been the hottest team in the league lately. And they were pretty farkin’ good before that. So yay.

Everything Else

Organizational round-up Wednesday is what it’s become. Let’s get to it, starting in the juniors up in the hinterlands.

In the Q, Dillon Fournier was a -1 in two games for Rouyn-Noranda. He was also named to the QMJHL team for the Subway Series against Team Russia. For those who don’t know, the Subway Series is six games, two games each from an All-star team of each junior league, against Team Russia. It’s a sort of precursor for Canada to see who will compete for the World Junior roster. From what I’ve seen Fournier won’t be making Team Canada, but I suppose you never know. On the year Fournier is 7-10-17 and +16 in 22 games.

Also in the Q at Victoriaville, Brandon Whitney went 1-1 in two stars, but only gave up four goals total (two in each) on 73 shots. The numbers on the year are still unsightly, at 3.62 GAA and .896 SV%. But the poor kid is seeing over 40 shots per game, so he may be puck-shocked soon.
