Scared of a Cartoon Dog: On The Duck Pond
As the most of you may have heard, the Blackhawks are coming into tonight’s tilt with a three game losing streak. It’s the first time all season the Blackhawks have put one of those together, thankfully. With the Ducks having dropped their past five games and the Blackhawks getting the shit beat out of them in Alberta, hopefully this game doesn’t turn out to be the battle of who could care less.
The Ducks have had a terrible November, even with the ageless wonder that is Teemu Selanne and the ever punchable Corey Perry. Goaltending hasn’t helped the lacking offense and the Ducks defense is anything bus impressive. Thus the terrible November trifecta. Ducks will be without their big enforcer George Parros, but I’m sure Mr. ASG himself John Scott will be in on the Blackhawks side.
Alas, scoring from the Blackhawks top lines has been here and there, severely inconsistent. I’m getting really close to creating an invisible man/wanted/lost boy photoshop for a few of them. This matinee first game of a back-to-back will feature Corey Crawford in net and possibly a return to the blue line from Brent Seabrook.
The quarter mark of the season has come and gone and the first long trip of the season is almost over. Today is a great time to bounce back from whatever the past three have been and grab some points.
Let’s go Hawks!
