The Blackwawks five game winning streak was snapped by Vancouver 5 - 4 in OT. The Hawks still picked up their 100th point of the season. Crawford was replaced by Darling with the score 4 - 1. Chicago fought back to force overtime but the Canucks tallied the winning goal on a controversial call that was not reversed on replay. Daniel Sedin was in the crease and interfered with Darlings' blocker but the goal stood.

I should have added Marian Hossa returned from injury adding a goal and a helper.

The Hawks struggled against another bottom feeder last night eeking out a 3 - 2 shootout victory over Dallas. Only Crow's goal tending provided the margin of victory as the Stars outshot the Hawks 46 to 24. Also, one more victory eliminates St. Louis from winning the Central.

The Hawks play at Florida tonight while the Blues host Calgary. Any 2 points lost where the Blues cannot gain on Chicago eliminates St. Louis from winning the Central. This includes the Hawks winning, the Blues losing in regulation, or both losing in either overtime or a shootout.

Well isn't that special. Getting our butts handed to us by a bottom feeder. A little over five minutes to go and we're behind seven zip.

Minnesota only gets one point today as they lose to Detroit in OT. The Hawks magic number to win the Central is 8.

The Hawks' crap defense has found its way to Tampa.
I favor capital punishment. But there are alot of cases where I don't think capital punishment applies (parking violations) and cases where it should be applied (murder, child molestation, illegal HS football recruiting).- BirdWatcher

No excuse for losing a three goal lead. The Hawks appear to be limping into the playoffs this year.

Yeah the final is a 5 - 4 loss in overtime. We at least get a point.

We cannot get Artem Anisimov back soon enough.

The point the Hawks did get eliminated the Blues from winning the Central.

On one hand I am concerned about the lack of effort during the Florida trip.

OTOH, the Western Conference is basically done and everyone else is playing for seeds. The Hawks have 8 points on Minnesota for both the division and conference and the Wild have been on cruise control for the last couple of weeks. I don't see them running the Hawks down over the next two weeks. Even the wild card is locked up with the Kings sitting 11 points back of St. Louis. The Hawks are pretty well locked into the #1 seed in the west and I doubt they really care about winning the President's trophy. They clearly had no interest in matching the Lightening's intensity once they were up 4-1 last night. Definitely one that should have gone in the "W" column but I'm not in panic mode just yet.

It isn't easy winning 20 of 22 or whatever they did right before the last few games.

They will be ok.

The Preds lost to the Bruins last night eliminating them from the Central. That leaves only the Wild in the way of the Hawks winning the division. The magic number is 6.

The offsides replay is totally useless. NHL, please do away with it.

Oh and by the way, four zip Hawks over the Pens after one. The Pens are missing eight due to injury.

Hawks win 5 - 1. The victory reduces their magic number for the Wild down to 4 to win the Central Division. And for the Western Conference it is 3 for the Ducks and 1 for the Sharks and eliminates the Oilers.

The Wild won tonight so the Hawks magic number to win the division remains at 4. The good news is the Jackets lost in OT. Columbus is one of basically three teams battling with Chicago for the leagues' best record. Also the Hawks play the Jackets tomorrow. Good to catch them on back to back.

Artem Anisimov is skating now and should make the Hawks' road on Tuesday.

The Hawks beat one of the top teams in the East, the Columbus Blue Jackets 3 - 1. The victory reduces their magic number for the division and conference to two. Minnesota is their only obstacle. One more win will take care of that. Washington, Columbus, and Pittsburgh in the East along with the Hawks are vying for the league's best record and the President's Trophy.
