Line combos for tonight?

BarDownBrown 04-24-2013 07:50 AM

Question: Is Handzus hurt?

EchoesoftheEighties 04-24-2013 07:58 AM

Hawks should take this with ease. Oilers have been playing AWFUL hockey lately. Seriously pretty much the entire team has checked out already but they do play the Hawks well. Wanted to go to this game :(

Yeah, just like how they were supposed to manhandle Vancouver with a decimated blueline, right?

The Hawks are playing with their heads up their ***** lately and I'm hoping it's just because they've secured their spot and just don't have the motivation. A team like Edmonton already outskates them and if they come with the same effort as they have been then this will be an ugly loss.

They look like a team that's just waiting to flip the switch.

Although they are running out of games to do it, considering I'm hoping that everyone sits against St Louis.

Presidents Trophy would be nice. Doesn't mean anything unless they hoist the Cup though.

Being the best team in the regular season does mean something.

Just win this thing already, we've been in first place all year long at least have something to show for it. Come out hard and bury the Oil early.

HockeySensible 04-24-2013 12:56 PM

Sounds like LeBlanc will get in the line-up tonight. The lines from the morning skate:

Saad - Toews - Hossa
Sharp - LeBlanc - Kane
Bickell - Handzus - Stalberg
Kruger - Shaw - Frolik

digdug41982 04-24-2013 12:57 PM

Well, it's something. Let's see how he looks at 2C.

McDooRoo 04-24-2013 01:03 PM

I think the Hawks come out and put the Oilers to bed early. I think they're going to pissed off after that showing against Vancooter and Q sounded pissed off after that game too, so practice was probably "fun".

Wasted Years 04-24-2013 01:04 PM

Hmmm. Interesting. I really hope he performs well. Just one game though. Could mean Bolland is out for a while as he would usually just plug in one of the stumps into the lineup.

Yeah it's worked out so well for the last few teams that have won it...

I'm interested in seeing how he looks between Kane and Sharp.

Though from his scouting reports I assumed he was going to be put next to Hossa instead of Kane.

Bubba88 04-24-2013 01:36 PM

makes this game interesting. Want to see that guy playing and I'm sure Bowman will bring him back for next season.

No Fun Shogun 04-24-2013 01:52 PM

Expecting a tough game, as we usually have troubles with these guys.

GreatKeith 04-24-2013 02:16 PM

Please run this horrible team out of the building, Blackhawks. I'm tired of watching lazy effort after lazy effort. Send a message so strong that even our management can't ignore it.

theaub 04-24-2013 02:36 PM

1-0 shootout win please

Shanahanigans 04-24-2013 04:47 PM

You guys won't be facing the Oilers...you'll be facing Taylor Hall trying to carry 19 other guys who checked out 2 weeks ago. Should be an easy win for you guys.

A decimated Vancouver team still has better defence and goaltending than the Oilers. Chicago might have let their guard down since securing a playoff spot but the Oilers have completely checked out. 8 regulation losses in the last 9 games. Right now it's Taylor Hall and 19 pylons.

GrandLarseny 04-24-2013 05:16 PM

Drew LeBlanc buries 6 goals on route to a 12-0 win. Also Marcus Kruger gets 6 points too because I like Kruger. Go Hawks!

CerebralGenesis 04-24-2013 07:22 PM

Should be able to watch this. Work trips suck blah

13elieve 04-24-2013 07:43 PM

I'm guessing either a 2-0 win, or 1-0. Don't see the Oilers scoring atm, they have no heart.

McDooRoo 04-24-2013 08:33 PM

Anywhere online where I can watch this?
