Hartman a smash in his NHL debut; Hawks beat the Devils 3-1

By Brad Vandenberk

It was game three of this eight game home stand and the Hawks were looking to play a complete game to gain a victory. It was a shootout coupled with an overtime loss to start at the UC. Marian Hossa took this Hawks squad on his back once again, scoring a power play goal, as well as taking the shot for Jonathan Toews to put home the game winning rebound as they beat the New Jersey Devils 3-1. Hossa is on fire these days scoring 7 goals in his last 4 games. Finally a true win at home, although gaining 4 of a possible 6 is a good start. Corey Crawford made some key saves to help get the win. Cory Schneider was his counterpart making it difficult to score.

The Hawks were looking for a spark to ignite the lineup. Let’s be honest here, if it wasn’t for an electrifying 3rd period against the Canucks the other night, this was starting to look ugly. Teuvo Teravainen was re-assigned to Rockford and passing him on the highway was recalled Ryan Hartman and Kyle Cumiskey.

TTMI~Radio, e.80, Hawks-Habs Preview & NHL Awards

For at least the initial fifty minutes I think we have a really great show for you this week.

Our friend Adam Summers of the Breakout! Hockey podcast returns to help us breakdown Tuesday night’s epic battle in Montreal between the Canadiens and Blackhawks.  Adam’s allegiance is oddly divided between these two Original Six combatants and he provides us with some great insight on the Habs in particular, but Blackhawks as well.

Join us for a line-by-line detailed overview on the Canadiens (who are captained by three Americans); what to look for Tuesday night; who’s been pulling the wagon and who hasn’t and which of this year’s Habs aren’t expected back next season.

We’ll also get Adam’s take on the Zdeno Chara-Max Pacioretty incident, supplementary discipline and Gary Bettman’s dilemma. We also get the latest on the Whizzinator James Wisniewski, an ex-Hawk heavy Canadiens bunch; Habs on the mend, a little bastard on the Bruins, Blackhawks’ playoff odds, Rockford IceHogs Hockey and so much more.

There’s a hot topic state of pro wrestling discussion as well.  Don’t tell Vince!

In all, its a great Tuesday game primer and we thank Adam very much for his insight.

Check out Adam’s show, the Breakout! Hockey Program each week at BreakoutHockey.podomatic.com & Tuesday night about an hour after the Hawks-Canadiens game for his recap, plus all the latest from around the National Hockey League.
