The last time the Blackhawks played in Philly…
And they’ve been gearing up for their return:
Toews also had a smile on his face when asked about going back to Philly for the first time. Turns out he purchased replays of Game 5 and Game 6 of that series on iTunes and had a group of current Hawks watching it with him during a flight this season.
“There were a bunch of guys huddled around the seat watching on the plane, and even watching those last two games … you know the outcome ultimately, but it still makes you nervous to watch it a little bit,” the 23-year old Hawks captain said. “A lot of those cool feelings come rushing back and everything from the celebration on the ice and everything in the locker room, too. It’d be cool to think about that again.” [NHL.com]
Tazer’s still rocking those stitches in his lip. It’s one time we were all, “NOT THE FACE!” the decided that we don’t really mind.
Gingeroux is still near the top of the NHL points card (46, one of the Sedinbots has 48). Jonathan is tied for 2nd in goals scored (22, but Stammer’s opening up race with 27). Dan Carcillo is out against his former team, which really sucks because he & Hartnell could go 12 rounds over who I hate more.
The Hawks and Flyers each have 52 points (Flyers have two games in hand) and lost their last match-ups. Let’s see who wants to start a winning streak tonight.
