Is history repeating it's self for the St. Louis Blues?


Someone put this picture up on the Hockey Writers Facebook group. If you're a St. Louis Blues fan, you might be a bit worried.

Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews scores a dirty goal



Check out this dirty goal by Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews as he puts on the how's it going on Edmonton Oilers goalie Devin Dubnyk. I guess, I will go cut Dubnyk from my fantasy team so he can go find his protective cup that Johnny faked him out.

Awesome Corey Crawford save



Going into the Stanley Cup Playoffs one of the question marks for the Chicago Blackhawks was the goaltending. I think the questions have been answered. This is the line for Chicago Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford, 14 games, 10-4, .938 save percentage and a 1.67 goals against average.

Pavel Datsyuk drills Jonathan Toews



s/t to Paul from Kukla's Korner... The puck is nowhere around when Red Wings forward Pavel Datsyuk drills Blackhawks forward Jonathan Toews. I remember the play from last night’s game and don’t know why a call wasn’t made on the play, checking the box score there was no penalty called. Whatever… The Red Wings have done everything they can to get Toews off of his game and last night he didn’t take the bait even though Henrik Zetterberg was hacking him up one side and down the other. I can’t wait for game seven.

More on the Michael Frolik penalty shot

I have heard a lot of grumbling about the penalty shot in question from Detroit Red Wings fans. After the game, in the postgame show on NBC Sports Net, hockey analyst Keith Jones said it was a good call and the refs have been calling this a penalty all season long.

Frankly, the officiating on both sides of the ice has been brutal during this series. The Red Wings have been allowed by the on-ice officials to take excessive liberties in the form of slashs and two handed hacks on Blackhawks forward Jonathan Toews without any calls what-so-ever. Some of these non-calls were down right brutal. So if anything, last night’s penalty show was a bit of karma coming back to bite the Red Wings in the butt. Finally, a call went the way of the Blackhawks.

Before you accuse me of being a Blackhawks fan, stop, I am not. I am Boston Bruins and Minnesota Wild Fan. I am also a hockey fan that likes to see a good hockey game and last night was an exciting hockey game. I actually could care less who wins game seven, although I do find the Blackhawks more watchable than the Red Wings and Jonathan Toews did go to the University of North Dakota.

In closing, Carlo Colaiacovo shouldn’t have slashed Michael Frolik on the hands in a scoring opportunity, if he didn’t want to put his team a man down or give up a possible penalty shot. The refs called a penalty shot, correctly. That's life. Colaiacovo made the decision to slash Frolik and he put his team in a bad situation. Now we go back to Chicago for game seven.

(Video) Michael Frolik draws a penalty shot and then scores on the penalty shot.



I feel the series starting turn in the Chicago Blackhawk's favor; I believe that the Blackhawks have the momentum in the series now. Chicago Blackhawks forward Michael Frolik shows what happens when you don't get the puck deep, he creates a turnover and an opportunity going the other way. Michael Frolik draws the penalty shot and then cashes in. Of course, Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard didn't like it. But that’s life.

I don't think that you can blame Red Wings defenseman Carlo Colaiacovo either, the way the refs have called the game, there was a good chance they don't call even call a penalty on the play. This time they did.

Canucks’ Jannik Hansen concerned about stain on his record

Cry me a river, don't do the crime, if you don't want to do the time. This is why people hate/despise the Vancouver Canucks. You're responsible for your actions on the ice.
Brad Ziemer, Vancouver Sun --- Through 129 AHL and 286 NHL games, the Vancouver Canucks winger liked to think he had earned a reputation as a hard-working, honest player who played the game the right way.

So Hansen was more than a little disappointed about the one-game suspension he served Thursday night for his hit two nights earlier on Chicago forward Marian Hossa.

Sure, the $7,297.30 Hansen forfeited for sitting out Thursday night's game hit him right in the wallet, but Hansen said he's more concerned about having that mark on his record.

"Of course, you know that you are a repeat offender now if something happens again," he said after participating in Thursday's optional game-day skate at American Airlines Center. "You are trying to play an honest game and play the right way and not step too far over the line and it's unfortunate. But that's the way it is right now."

Other than the video that the NHL posted on its website, Hansen said he received no further explanation for the suspension.

NHL goes light on Jannik Hansen



I am tired of watching the NHL Department of Player Safety go light on players that should be suspended for multiple games, this was a situation, that I believe warranted a 2-3 games suspension. By going light on Jannik Hansen you pretty much guaranteeing he's going to be a marked man in the next game between the Chicago Blackhawks and the Vancouver Canucks.

In summary, there is "no" justification for that dirty, bush league hit, and I don't care what anyone says,you can not defend that dirty hit either. I don't care what Jannik Hansen is doing. Everyone knows that Marian Hossa has just returned from a concussion and you can connect the dots, the Blackhawks are the best team in the Western conference. This was a definite attempt to injure another player.
