The Chicago Blackhawks returned home on Sunday night, after a 0-2 road trip with losses to Nashville and St Louis. Coming home, it was the Ottawa Senators visiting the United Center.
The Hawks edged the Sens 2-1 to get back in the win column. Scott Darling made his NHL debut stopping 32 of 33 shots that he faced. Jeremy Morin worked his way back into the lineup after it was announced that Dan Carcillo would be on the shelf for the next 4 weeks with a knee injury suffered Saturday night in St Louis.
Jonathan Toews put the Hawks on the board with a nice wrap-around goal tucking it passed Ottawa’s netminder Craig Anderson. The Senators would tie the game shorthanded with Brad Richards and the linemen getting tangled during the play. Brent Seabrook would give the Hawks the 2-1 lead on the power play and that’s all that would be required. There was only one referee for this game, Steve Kozari. Just before game time the second referee, Eric Furlatt, left with an illness. Read more

The Phantom of the Rogers Arena

I’m guessing most Blackhawk fans have never been to a musical – if you haven’t, skip this paragraph and go right to the one where it starts out, “We got a rope, we got a tree, all we need is a referee.” For those of you who have, I’m sure you would agree that the human voice has the uncanny power to evoke emotion sequestered away in the dark recesses of our hearts. If you just spend a moment reading the lyrics to the song Music of the Night from Phantom of the Opera, you’ll discover one of those gems whose worth can never be told. The song actually helped me get over the Blackhawk victory that was snatched away somewhere in the depth’s or Rogers Arena Friday night. While I tossed and turned, reflecting on the “phantom” calls that contributed to our demise, I finally surrendered “to my darkest dreams.” Read more
A special Saturday night edition of TTMI~Radio here to discuss the aftermath following the Blackhawks somewhat controversial loss to the Canucks in Vancouver late Friday night.
** Note: We recorded this show a different way, in a different setting. Chris’s audio in particular suffered from some background echoing for the first five minutes, but cleared up after then. I don’t recall anything profound said during that time, so if you jump ahead to minute six or seven it should be just fine.
