And that, ladies and gentlemen, is an NHL record! #Blackhawks beat San Jose, 2-1, their 17th straight without a loss in regulation!


Impressive

Another Luongo shutout, now with a GAA of 1.45, leapfrogging Anderson for the #1 spot

(although Anderson spent 350 more minutes in nets so far this season, which is )

Luongo is a giant troll. Good for him.

Hawks having fun with their winning streak:

http://blackhawks.nhl.com/club/page.htm?id=86921



After every Blackhawks win, the championship belt is awarded to the team's top player by the previous belt winner.

(story doesn't say if the 1st star is chosen "by you, the fans" )

i really don't get this over-the-top attempt to justify or vindicate cooke?

none of ward's examples are remotely close to capturing the same action...

it wasn't just the "two players going into the boards" factor, or even the "finishing the check" factor...


I see a clear stepping motion that I've yet to hear/see/read any rational explanation for. it's subtle, and i doubt Cooke intended it to actually cut/debilitate Karlsson with, but it was an extra motion that was not necessary and that can only be reasonably explained as an attempt to initiate contact with his foot... which has a sharp blade at the end of it... which caused a major injury.

forget melnyk or murray's reaction, that Karlsson came out with the comments he did can be construed as a frustrated player over reacting, but imo, with an injury like that, it's quite telling.

the players all know of the inherent risk, how often do you hear negative comments from guys who take borderline or even illegal hits that lead to injury... "no-comment" or generic comments are typically the reaction b/c players generally give each other the benefit of the doubt (b/c they all know how fine the line is btw acceptable aggression and "too much").

Karlsson's comments point to a feeling that the intent to injure was there, and you gotta know he's seen the replays 100x, not too mention felt the actual stepping motion.

there is a huge difference btw deliberately stepping and falling fwd/putting a foot down to get balance. the replays show that Cooke wasn't putting his foot down to get his balance & his pulling back motion after the contact doesn't have anywhere near the twitch response that an "accidental step" would have engendered.

he got away with "murder", and for whatever reason the pundits are for the most part trying to sweep it under the carpet for him (not that i'm a conspiracy kind of guy, but who knows, maybe the league put some pressure to kill this quickly vs have it be yet another act of violence controversy???)

And Wards example in that video are just working vs him, pinning someone vs the board happens 20 times a game, every game, if not more, just not that way , and not with a stomping motion.
Still can't believe Cooke did not get a suspension... This was not an accident...imagine if someone does that to Crosby or Malkin, wonder how the Pens would react...

The Flyers are playing their 20th game today and the Bruins have only played an NHL low 14 games thus far. There are a few teams @ only 15 games also.

They also have less back-to-back games than most teams in the league.

Boston missed 1 game vs Tampa because of a snow storm I think.

That is ********. Everyone should be on an even playground. Sounds like someone is trying to fix the champions again.
