HOLY CRAP, WE WON. What Edmonton game? I do not know of this three-game losing streak of which you speak.
Brent Seabrook came back! I’m sure Duncan Keith is happy to see his linemate on the ice again. And hey, he got the team championship belt for his comeback!
Patrick Sharp got an unbelievable hat trick! He also got first star of the game! Vomit ALL the rainbows.
Jonathan Toews got a record five points today (2 goals, 3 assists), which beats the four points he racked up against the Atlanta Thrashers (snif) on November 6, 2010. Should we be talking about him being a Hart Trophy contender already?
This game, holy crap. After being down 4-2 in the first 40 minutes of play, the boys came back and showed everybody what they can do. Four goals in nine minutes? No problem! You want two goals in 28 seconds? Sure!
We struggled in the first 40 minutes, which I think is way too long to get in the scoring groove. More defense at net, please.
Poor Ducks. After those three successive goals in three minutes, they pulled Jonas Hiller in favor of backup goalie Dan Ellis…who let in Toews’ second goal of the game. Well then.
That would be our penalty kill, which is dead stupid last in the league. Remember how we redeemed our PP? We need to do that pronto with the PK.
