My wife and my little guy are both wearing their Hawks gear today - going to be a fun divided household here for the next week or so.

I had no hockey allegiance in Minnesota, but it's been an exciting few years for the Hawks here in Chicago. Can't help but cheer them on. :)

I really have no idea how this will turn out, and I won't really be disappointed either way as my hockey 'fan-ness' is pretty marginal. But hey ... I'm in Chicago ... fun times.

I hate Toews. Hate Seabrook. Kane beats up taxi drivers.

Man I hope the Wild take it to them.

And you'd kill to have any of them on your team, I know I would.

Maybe we should have dual game threads going tonight ... Twins-Orioles and Wild-Blackhawks.

Would the Wild still be down 2-1 in this series if they had a healthy Josh Harding in net, or is Chicago good enough across the board that even Josh Harding's superior goalie skills couldn't save this team?

Probably, they only scored 3 goals in 2 games at Chicago. Not going to win too many games without scoring especially against a good team like Chicago. The goaltending wasn't the biggest problem in those first two losses.

Goaltending has been fine. The Wild just didn't finish on their chances when they thoroughly outplayed the Hawks for stretches in those first two games. They win tomorrow and this is going to get very interesting.

I'd once again suggest that the Wild have largely outplayed the Hawks this series, but their game-breaking talents have been the difference so far. Sounds a lot like the last series we managed to win.

That was a straight up domination across the board, other than that soft goal Bryz gave up the Wild looked pretty freaking good tonight. I know "momentum" doesn't mean a lot in the NHL playoffs, however the Wild have to feel good going to back to Chicago scoring 7 goals against Crawford these last 2 games (should have been 8 on the Granlund no goal).

Cooke back in the lineup is huge, that 3rd line is real, real sexy all of a sudden. Little Spurgeon has come up huge these playoffs as well.

Coyle, Granlund, Spurgeon, Haula, and Scandella are becoming legit studs right in front of our eyes. Scandella isn't getting much play but the kid has been fantastic the last two series.

It makes the future REALLY exciting.

You forgot Nino. Seriously, Fletcher robbed the Islanders. Spurgeon was an undrafted free agent. Fletcher has been pretty damn good - does the Leddy trade even matter anymore? He's not going to be retained this offseason.

Its amazing how Haula has progressed. Why Brodziak gets any ice time whatsoever is beyond me.

Since the Olympics, Granlund has been the team's #1 center (outside of faceoffs).


Are the Wild going to even bother making a run at Vanek this offseason now? What seemed like a shoe in, really doesn't seem like it anymore.
