Hawks, 6-1.

HockeySensible 01-18-2013 12:50 PM

Chicago's going to lose. It's just the way Chicago always starts the year, regardless of how good or 'bad' they are, seemingly.

Chicago hasn't won a season-opening game since 2006-07, an 8-6 win over Nashville.

TorMenT 01-18-2013 12:53 PM

Liking 3-1 Blackhawks. Toews with an empty netter, Hossa, and stalberg.

Gootie 01-18-2013 12:56 PM

4-2 Hawks

Kane
Bolland
Shaw
Keith

I think that teams with the banner raising have a hard time preparing mentally for the game. Add in Kopitar being out, and I think the Hawks eke out a 3-2 victory.

Blue Liner 01-18-2013 01:02 PM

Do they have NBC in Playa del Carmen? ;)

DayNah 01-18-2013 01:25 PM

Man I've missed these!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So happy hockey is back!

Red Mosquito 01-18-2013 01:26 PM

I'll go 5-4 Kings. Crawford lets in 3 softies and half of us are screaming for Stan Bowman to get fired for not replacing Crow over the summer.

Sevanston 01-18-2013 01:30 PM

The Hawks decide to serve the Kings the same nasty medicine they ate right after their own banner-raising ceremony.

3-2 Hawks

MTP 01-18-2013 01:52 PM

4-1 Hawks

Hossa x 2
Stalberg
Leddy

I remember getting the major networks in my visits to Cancun. I just can't remember if they were the Miami or Houston broadcasts so you might get NBC but not the Hawks game.

we lose, but don't lose again in regulation until vancouver

Cullksinikers 01-18-2013 02:09 PM

The Hawks will win, 2-1, in my opinion.

CHI: Saad, Shaw

LAK: Carter

MadhouseOnMadison 01-18-2013 02:39 PM

I think we'll have a good showing overall but a few defensive breakdowns and a momentum killing goal let in by Crawford will send us to Phoenix with an 0-1 record.

Nothingman* 01-18-2013 03:36 PM

5-2 Hawks.

I was kidding (sort of :laugh:) I'm not expecting to be around much to watch hockey. Leave tomorrow and come back the following Saturday. Looking forward to getting off the grid a bit actually. I'll keep an eye out and at least check scores. Not sure how much I'll get on here. I know I'll be missed! ;)

ChiGuySez 01-18-2013 04:05 PM

Saad makes the opening night roster. Sweet. Hoping he gets some ice time.

CPHawksFan 01-18-2013 04:07 PM

Do we have any confirmation on what the lines will be?

MurrayBannerman 01-18-2013 04:09 PM

3-1 Hawks

CHI: Toews, Hossa, Stalberg
LA: Brown

Kings under too much pressure with the banner raising et al

HockeySensible 01-18-2013 04:19 PM

The lines look like they're going to be what they were in training camp, at least opening night:

Carcillo - Toews - Hossa
Sharp - Bolland - Kane
Bickell - Shaw - Stalberg
Mayers - Kruger - Frolik

Keith - Seabrook
Hjalmarsson - Oduya
Leddy - Brookbank

Crawford
Emery

Toews is here. Not skating. Rest of the Blackhawks still are. Quenneville will have to update after skate.

HockeySensible 01-18-2013 04:29 PM

Welp, there goes the entire year. Fire Bomwan, fire Q, trade everyone and start over.

:scared:

Illinihockey 01-18-2013 04:29 PM

I'm going to guess he has the flu

UsernameWasTaken 01-18-2013 04:32 PM
