With players like Carcillo, (I like to beat up taxi drivers or whatever he did) Kane, (Generic Crosby) Toews, and a crappy goaltending tandem (especially with one of them being Emery and I never liked him with Ottawa or Philly) that is somehow holding together. The fact the Blackhawks ended up lucking out being in the cup finals against Michael Leighton ( talk about lucking out ). I never liked Roenick or Chelios when they played for the Hawks either. It's just for some reason they annoy the hell out of me. Not to mention their goal song. Only person I even like is Q.

The Red Wings are doing a good job of preventing the Blackhawks from getting going and Howard is quickly sneaking on to the Conn Smythe radar, but the Blackhawks never looked this out of sorts all season long.
When Joel Quenneville goes against the Red Wings in the playoffs, he has a bad time...

mikey287 wrote:Also lost in all this: how well Jimmy Howard is playing. He's been just terrific, especially in this series. Last night was the first time this season the Blackhawks have been shutout, right? They've scored 2 goals in 3 games. Over the course of the season, they would average 10 goals over that same stretch of time.
