PuckChatter~Radio; e.142, Crusaders of the Lost Podcast, A Blackhawks Chat and a Special Flashback Steve Montador Interview

By Chris Block

It took six, long months but PuckChatter~Radio returned Thursday night for 90 minutes of Hawky Talk just the way you like it. Or, not.

Over the course of the initial 80 minutes, Al Cimaglia of Sirius/XM Radio joined me to breakdown the Blackhawks trade deadline action in the wake of Patrick Kane’s broken collarbone. We discussed how the Hawks stack up now against the West, the handling of Teuvo Teravainen as well as various comments those in the organization have made about Teuvo and evaluated Stan Bowman’s past year.

In the past two months, Stan Bowman has traded 2 prospects who were formerly ranked in the Top 20 of the Blackhawks 2015 Prospect Rankings. We discussed the rate of return those players help yield and the history of the Hawks and how they’ve managed their prospects.

Finally, we replay an April 2, 2013 interview I did with the late Steve Montador.

*We had technical difficulties with the audio at two points during the live recording. This file was edited in post-production. I’ve uploaded the edited file to BlogTalkRadio as well, but some may have gotten the first version, which wasn’t too terrible (for our low standards) but we had a soundboard drop at the start of the show and Al and I both had our sound drop somewhere near the halfway mark. I cleaned those spots up afterwards.  The Montador interview was clipped about thirty seconds early in the original recording too, for some reason.  Intro and outro audio was added and edited in this second version.

**As mentioned on the show, we will return soon with a special podcast on a yet to be determined date and time.

Lindbloom’s View: Let’s Dance

By Rich Lindbloom

From a casual bystanders view, one would think the scrap between Jamal Mayers and Raffi Torres had little impact on the outcome of the game in the desert last Thursday. I told people at work that I doubted that the Hawks would even waste any energy exacting just retribution on Raffi for his brutal decapitation attempt of Marian Hossa in last year’s playoffs. After all, it’s as plain as the nose on your face that a good beat down will have little impact on the way Torres plays the game. As the saying goes, “A tiger can’t change its stripes.” Goes to show you what I know about hockey. Read more »

Brandon Saad nets first NHL goal in Blackhawks 5-3 victory in San Jose

By Jon Fromi

The Chicago Blackhawks broke a four-game losing streak at the HP Pavilion, rallying from an early two-goal deficit to defeat the San Jose Sharks 5-3 Tuesday night. The ‘Hawks remained unbeaten in regulation this season in a game that saw rookie Brandon Saad log his first NHL goal in a wild first period.

The Sharks were physical right from the start of the contest and it paid off in the form of a pair of early goals. San Jose laid some hard hits on Andrew Shaw along the boards and Duncan Keith behind the ‘Hawks net. Keith avoided big contact, but landed hard on his back.

With Keith temporarily on the bench, Joe Pavelski knocked in a bouncing puck created by Marc Edouard Vlasic’s shot from the point at the 2:53 mark of the first.

Minutes later, Tommy Wingles got the puck entering the Chicago zone and fired a lazer over the glove of Corey Crawford to make it 2-0 San Jose just 5:18 into the game. At this point, coach Joel Quenneville used his time out in an attempt to settle his team. It did just that as Chicago struck twine three times in the span of 89 seconds. Read more »
