DIRTY HITS, GOONS & WHY THE NHL CODE WORKS


Following his reckless boarding of Buffalo Sabres’ Jason Pominville Monday night, the NHL handed down a two game suspension to the mad Swede which will make his next game back against?…you got it, the Sabres.  This was not an accident by the NHL disciplinarians.

How much is that NHL Center Ice Package again?

Whether or not the hit was dirty or intentional is a topic best left for the A.M. sports radio crowd and others who will use this as just another bullet point in their “Concussions Bad” or “Hockey Violent” PowerPoint presentations.  Thankfully, Pominville is not stretched out in some Buffalo area hospital bed in traction, and equally important in the cosmic sense, Niklas Hjalmarrson will get his chance to back up just how tough a guy he is on Saturday night at the United Center.  Only this time, the players will actually get to see him coming.

Hawks fans Alert!

This is basically a copy n paste from the website I blog on but I just really wanted to share it with fellow Hawk fans as I feel it is something we should address.

The Chicago Black Hawks thwarted the much ridiculed Edmonton Oilers by a score of 5-2 last night in front of yet another massive crowd at the United Center. The Oilers have been an injury plagued team all season and last night had an extra thin roster via a couple trades earlier in the day.

It really was not much of a match against the Hawks last night. Rookie goaltender Devyn Dubnyk played extremely well keeping the club from the province of tar sands in the game. Hossa, Kane, Toews, Kopecky, Keith and Seabrook were all honored prior to the drop of the puck for their achievements at the Olympic games.
