Why, the hell was that goal, disallowed? the war room is useless.

Wolski was put back on the wing. What an idiot Ganato is.

Seemed like it. He only had 2:19 of ES time in the third. Hejduk also had less than 3:00 ES time in the third, so I guess Granato was resting that line with the big lead.

Arnason with a three point game. Ewww. And Wolski back on the wing? Does Granato like to flaunt his ineptitude?

He was on and off the wing, he either centered a line with Svatos and Smyth or was centered by Arnason.

I saw it a bit differently. The Avs played well but the Hawks were just awful and looked like a tired team.

I was at the game (as stated earlier)...and I told the people next to me "if you let Tyler Arnason win battles (which he was all afternoon)...you deserve to lose the game

It's just been so long that I have a hard time believing we legitimately dominated this game. Perhaps Coach Q phoned Arnason before the game to inspire his play. Q reasoned that by sacrificing his Hawks to Arnason, we'd all have to admit -- at least for one game -- that it was a good thing he was on the ice, thus vindicating the coach from years of awful personnel decisions.

In the post game interview with Granato, he said the explanation he was given is that "the stick forced the goalie's leg into the net". It's perhaps the weakest excuse to call back a goal I've ever heard, especially considering that the puck was never covered and the goalie's pad had absolutely nothing to do with the puck crossing the line or not.

I don't see why you'd complain about what Granato did with the lines... it obviously worked. They scored as many goals tonight as they had in the previous four games. Wolski did great as center during his first five games or so, but after that it was pretty lackluster.

A little bit of both. Good seats, and I traded my dad his SLR camera for my point and click this week. I think I got the better of that deal

For some reason I got a chuckle out of this photo of Clark defending Toews.

Man, I know there's not much to complain about when you're win 5-1, but Adam Foote was just awful on that Hawks goal.

Toews beat him for position at the side of the net, forced his way in there, and was quicker with the stick to knock it home. I would expect Toews to maybe be quicker with the stick, but Footer's defensive instincts were non-existent on that play. I don't want to grasp at straws, but he looks nearly completely done.

That's a play Adam Foote would've made in his sleep; box out the attacker, and gain control of the puck or whip it around the boards. Instead, he was left swinging his stick around as 190 pound Jonathan Toews beat him at the side.

It's really sad watching him regress game by game.
