Blackhawks News

The Daily Phil Esposito (2/10/11)

By Unknown author

There were eighteen former Blackhawks who were skating in the NHL last night, two of which were goalies. One goalie continued to falter while the other one has decided he wants to play, and he has played pretty damn well as of late. The other sixteen players amassed  three goals and four assists. A dick head defense-man continued his career year, and a Yote has scored three goals in the last two games. Former Hawks have been lighting the lamp lately, and tonight we add another former Hawk to that list as Jake Skille has been traded. I liked the guy, but I really like the potential that Frolik adds to this team. What was Dale Tallon thinking? Enjoy folks.

Click the jump for updates from the 2/9/11 games

Shawn Thornton – Boston
9:10 TOI,  minus one, 17 PIM, two shots
17 PIM, in this crazy game where there were also 14 goals combined. Pretty crazy game.

James Wisniewski – Montreal
24:17 TOI, two assists (30,31), 2 PIM, two shots
Very chippy game. There were three misconduct penalties, four game misconduct penalties. Tim Thomas and Carey Price got into a fight and each had 7 PIM. The Canadiens had a total of 93 PIM, while Wis only had two of them. Good job by the asshole to stay out of the trouble. On other Wis news, he has continues his career year by racking up two more assists giving him 31 on the season with a total of 36 points. This is 6 more points than he has ever had, and he still has about 30-35 games left. To put this into perspective, Duncan Keith only has 29 points this season… Utter CRAP!

Sammy Pahlsson – Columbus
15:20 TOI, one shot, 7 of 19 on face-offs

Loss (15), 14 saves on 17 shots, .824 SV%
Six straight losses and was pulled halfway through the 2nd last night. Looks like he may have lost his starting job.

He has played pretty damn well as of late. Four straight wins, , 5 goals against in that time, with a save percentage of .960, and looking like one of the three stars of the week.
