Hot Streak: Jonathan Toews

10 Feb

While I’m sending positive energy all over the NHL lately (Pens, Tanguay, Green…), I don’t want to leave out the Blackhawks.

The Hawks won 4-1 over Edmonton last night – they had to.  They’re 5-4-1 in the last 10,which is not going to get you through the tight pack at the middle of the Western Conference.  When you roll up on a team that’s 2-7-1, a win should be obvious.  Last night’s victory was led by the reunited Toews-Sharp-Kane line.  That is a lot of BOOM on one string.  Patrick Kane had 2 goals (was not in the 3 stars, how does that work?).  Jonathan Toews was first star with 2 assists – shorty has been an eenie-meenie-minie-mo lover lately with 2 goals and 8 assists in the last 5 matches.

Now that is point production.

Jack Skille was traded to Florida during warm-ups, which I imagine is very weird.  Toews said one minute he was there, the next he was gone from the room.  They’re getting two-time 20-goal scorer Michael Frolik.  The Hawks have the 4th-highest goals per game average in the NHL (3.13) but it hasn’t been enough lately.

No number of Oilers can stop Kaner.

Chicago has essential conference match-ups vs Dallas and Phoenix this week, plus the Wild and Blue Jackets next week.  I hate to say “must win,”  but it’s getting to be that time. The Hawks are currently 11th in the West, but only 1 point out of the 8th seed playoff spot.

Side note: Jonathan Toews Foxy Friday is an all-time top post on WUYS. Surprised?  Now send your happy thoughts to the Blackhawks for the next 10 days and if you’re a good girl, maybe you’ll come back in the next life as this shirt.  Or these pants.

Get lucky.

    I think you all read my mind. I get on the computer and I’m hoping for Sid/Geno/Nash/Toews and I always get what I want.

    Currently seeking help. I check this blog as often as I get on facebook.
