I wish I cared enough to pull up the topic after Game 3 vs Vancouver last year, because I'm pretty sure everyone was saying the same things.

Question is if we can win Game 4 on the road this time.

Flawless gameplan executed by the Pred's last night. Impressive and humbling from a Hawks perspective.

They flat out owned us. They had more jump in their step, beat us to loose pucks, had great gaps defensively in the neutral zone, played as physical a game as I've ever seen and capitalized on their chances.

What's our response on Thursday?

We better come out flying on Thursday or we're done, and I'll be rooting for LA for the rest of these playoffs. I don't want to do that.

Come on Hawks. Where's the passion?

Pathetic!

Seabrook and Byfuglien have been horrid this series. Just awful. I don't get the Hossa hate, he's the one piece on his line that is creating.

As a Preds fan, let me just say the feeling is mutual. Glad Detroit has the Wings - there isn't much else to get excited about. What a depressing city. But hey, it's a fantastic hockey market. f*%& the Dead Things!

I agree. I think Hossa has played very strong on the puck, and had created a lot of chances. I am not concerned about him as much as I am the rest of the team.

Are you implying that Nashville is somehow just like Detroit? Bahaha!!!!

I've lived 20 years in Detroit, 20 year in Nashville..... You have absolutely NO idea how ignorant you sound.

The population of Detroit continues to Grow Rapidly as we speak doesn't it!!!

Hey Hawks Fans,

I was at the game RIGHT behind the Chicago bench last night. Just wanted to give my perspective. First off, this series is FAR from over - by no means am I sitting here with too much confidence. The Hawks are dangerous and will remain so until they are gone!

I am very surprised by the lethargic effort of Chicago last night. It was like their was just no life on the Hawks bench all night! I had a GREAT look at this, and kept waiting for some sort of "Wake up" to happen... Never did. I'm not taking anything away from the Preds, they REALLY handed you your heads last night, especially physically - lets be honest, but the HAWKS made it awfully easy. They just didn't look prepared for this one - and it seemed so from the start.

I can only HOPE for game 4 to have the same flavor, but I don't expect it.

Good Day.

Ew. I f-ing hate Wings fans and it makes me mad they even got in the playoffs this year. Would've been so hilarious if they had missed...oh well.

Despite our "crappy hockey market", I thought it was ridiculously loud in Bridgestone last night. I was wondering if any of you Hawks fans were there and what your impression of the city and especially the arena and crowd noise level was? I'm always curious to hear out-of-town fans' perspectives.

I always wonder what's going on on the benches during the game...I'd LOVE to sit in those between-the-bench seats. So it was quiet on their bench? When you sit behind it can you actually hear what they're saying? I think that'd be soooo interesting.


Hawks, you guys are gonna come out MAD tomorrow (if you have any heart at all which some of you seem to doubt and I hope you're right!), but the Nashville crowd won't allow a Game 2-esque no-show from our boys. Gonna be very interesting...

All you guys need to do is learn that any contact made on any Pred player doesn't deserve a round of boos.

"You're the only reason we weren't slaughtered in Game 1 and Game 3, you earned a Shutout in Game 2 (in only your 2nd post-season game), you played pretty phenomenally for the last 3-4 weeks of the regular season and have been darn good in the post-season so far... now sit your ass on the bench so we can play the guy who was shaky-at-best all season and didn't see ice time in the last 2 weeks of the regular season, who the team and the fans have no confidence in..."

He's been arguably the best Hawk forward through 3 games, although that's a pretty pathetic group right now. I'd almost prefer if there were one or two obvious goats for the Hawks. If I could pin it on one or two guys I'd have more hope for the rest of the series. Almost everyone ****ing sucks right now. No heart. Notable exceptions being Niemi, Keith (I thought he was only skater who showed any grit or heart last night) and I suppose Hossa. I guess Kopecky played as well as you could expect last night too.

I'm not getting the Hossa and Toews hate at all. Both have been good the entire series. Obviously they haven't scored yet so yea that sucks, but their all around games have been solid.

Buff needs to either wake up or move back up to forward. I don't trust him with the puck as the last line of defense anymore.

I don't get why all the trolls come out now. We've been cruising most of the season them when we drop a few games everyone likes to chime in. It's really pretty pathetic.

Hockey games. Every game. In fact I was at the UC for game 2.

Care to cite any specific examples where Toews and Hossa have been bad?

How has Keith been losing most foot races for the puck lately

When was the last time Hammer pinched and carried the puck below the hash marks
Already, Toews splitting the D, Campbell behind the offensive end net and the entire team having a good transition game through the neutral zone.

They must read these threads.
