"Now you're all in big, big trouble."
That line was uttered by Billy Madison right before he destroyed a bunch of Miss Lippy's first graders in dodgeball. You see, the 2010-11 Blackhawks are really similar to Billy. They felt entitled to things. When the Canucks beat them in games 1, 2, and 3, the Hawks went back inside to find Miss Lippy doing a weird tribal dance. "I'm out," said the Hawks. But dodgeball time is Miss Lippy's special time. So back out they went. And when that little O'Doyle shit tried to peg them again, they caught the ball with one hand and started picking kids off one by one.
Well, nice job, Vancouver. I've got a feeling your whole family's going down. You've awakend a 27 year old man in a dodgeball game against some first graders.
Luongo has cracked. Bolland is back. The combined score of the last two games is 12-2. Now, its still an uphill battle for the Hawks. They have to win two straight. But, hey, this is better than anyone expected the situation to be after game 3. And this was all done without Brent Seabrook.
Seabs skated yesterday for the first time since he got hurt. He's still questionable for the game as of this writing (2 AM central time). I suspect we'll find out closer to game time.
This whole playoff hockey thing is fun. We've been really spoiled by how great the play has been. The regular season is going to feel like such a drag. So savor what we have now. Rock the barn. Make yourselves heard. As Billy said, "Stay here. Stay as long as you can. For the love of God, cherish it. You have to cherish it."
Did he really just reference Casablanca and Billy Madison in succession? Damn skippy he did. What do you think about that, Mr. Blue Duck?
