I can’t possibly be the only one asking this question…what the heck is going on with the Hawks?!?  They’ve lost four out of their last five games; how unlike them!  Has the team lost it’s spark?  Are the boys tired?  Do the injuries have anything to do with it?

Whatever the reason for the team’s slump lately, buy cialis they definitely need to lock it up and get back to their winning ways.  If you ask me, try the Blackhawks need their fans now more than ever.  There are only six games left in the regular making tonight’s game against the Minnesota Wild is a big one.

  • Who to Watch for From the Wild: Obviously Zach Parise is one to watch. The 29-year-old Minnesotan has played in 61 games this season, scoring 28 goals and earning himself 51 points.  I’d say that’s pretty darn good.  In 76 games, defenseman Ryan Suter has earned himself 41 points, 34 assists, and 7 goals; also not too shabby.
  • Who to Watch For From the Blackhawks: Sadly a number of familiar faces are missing-Toews, Kane, Bickell, and Roszival-so who do you watch?

Blackhawks' Shaw celebrates after scoring against the Wild during the second period of Game 5 of their NHL Western Conference quarterfinal playoff hockey series in ChicagoAndrew Shaw has been making quite a bit of noise lately.  The 22-year-old center has 19 goals, 17 assists, and 36 points in 74 games this season.  Let’s just hope he doesn’t decide to spear anyone again!  Another Blackhawk who’s stepped his game up is Patrick Sharp.  He’s the team’s lead goal scorer with 31 as well as points leader with 73.

Your Take Away Piece:

“With only six games left in the regular season, multiple injured players, and having struggled through their last few games, the Blackhawks need to rally and focus to keep themselves in good standing heading into playoffs.  These next few games very well may set the tone for how well the Hawks do in their pursuit of back-to-back Stanley Cup Championships.”
