The Daily Phil Esposito (3/30/11)

By Unknown author


On Monday there were two former ‘Hawks who took the ice and didn’t do jack shit. Hence why yesterday there was not an Espo.

Last night however there were twenty four former Hawks to take the ice amassing four points on zero goals and four assists. The Hawks lost ground on a couple teams but luckily they didn’t fall out of the top eight because they couldn’t. Thank god… Lets go get the Blue Jackets…
