Heart Check Time
It’s only one game but tonight's game against the Sharks is a measuring stick of the Hawks heart and desire. The Circus trip continues tonight in San Jose and it will be interesting to see how the Hawks present themselves after being b*tch slapped the last two games being outscored 14-4. There was no one individual to blame for the bad losses to Calgary and Edmonton but its late November and tonights game will provide a test to determine how well the Blackhawks stack up against a key Western Conference rival.
The Blackhawks may be catching the Sharks (12-5-1) at the wrong time. San Jose has scored 13 goals during a three-game winning streak and 20 over a 5-1-0 stretch.
If Q decides to change the lineup and would like to seek my advise, I would suggest that Brunette would look pretty good with Toews and Hossa on the #1 line. Next move Stalberg to the 2nd line and Car Bomb to the 4th line. Car Bomb and the 4th line could manage against the Sharks #1 line of Couture, Thornton and Pavelski. Heck its just a thought.
Tonight's Expected Hawks Lineup:
Odds and Ends:
- The Mighty Blackhawks are 10-3-1 in the past 14 games against the Sharks
- Seabrook and Frolik practiced yesterday, look to return soon to the lineup. I expect Seabs to play tonight.
