Deja Vu All Over Again


This home-and-home against Nashville reminds me of this time last year, when the Hawks had back to back games against the Scum with a chance to challenge for the division lead.

 

 

On December 30, 2008, the Hawks were in Detroit for the first of two games against the Red Wings, the second, of course, being the Winter Classic at Wrigley Field. We went to Detroit hoping to win two and claim 4 points and a share of the division lead. When the snow cleared from 4-0 and 6-4 losses, the Scum showed they were the class of the West and built an 8 point division lead that they held onto for the rest of the season.

 

Fast forward one year later, our Blackhawks are the class of the NHL and the Preds are upstarts, trying to jockey for position in December. In two games that couldn't have been more different, the Hawks locked down Nashville in a 4-1 win that the Q-stache called a "perfect road game" and followed it up with a 5-4 track meet that featured 6 total goals in the 3rd period. Chicago has an 8 point lead in the division, and their 55 points are tops in the league.

 

The torch has been passed. And this team has the ability to do what we have waited for since 1961 if they play focused, smart hockey.

 

Let's Go Hawks!
