After a scoreless 1st period, Bryan Bickell put the Chicago Black Hawks up 2 with a shorthanded and power-play goal in the 2nd. The Hawks seemed to lay back on their 2-0 lead, but  Kris Letang scored 2 in the third and the regulation game ended in a tie. After 15 penalties in the 3 periods the box remained empty for …

Exhibition Or Debacle In Toronto Sunday Night? by Momma Gouche

kerry Kerry Goulet

One would think that the exhibition games, prior to the opening of NHL hockey season, is a chance for players to get some  conditioning and the management to evaluate the skills of their new players. Obviously the game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Buffalo Sabres was a chance for the players to prove how tough they were. It should …

Hawks Still On Top by Momma Gouche

Although it was just an exhibition game on Tuesday night the Chicago Blackhawks continue their winning  streak. However, with the Detroit  Red Wings taking seven penalties of the eleven meted out. I feel that the Hawks should have scored more than the lone two goals of the game. I suppose that the pre-season games give the players a chance to …

Paul Ranger Gets The Winner by Momma Gouche

The Toronto Maple Leafs scored 3 goals on 4 shots on Sunday night, but let a 3 goal lead disappear with the Philadelphia Flyers  and didn’t get anything going again; until Paul Ranger, ( who gave up the sport in 2009) and on returning slipped one by Steve Martin for a 4-3 win.

I’ve barely got over the thrill of my Chicago Blackhawks winning the Stanley Cup and we are into the exhibition games. Due to cataract sugary I missed my Winnipeg Jets opener in which they lost in a shootout to the Washington Capitals on Saturday night. They lost 3-1 to Ottawa on Sunday night in a game that was fraught with …

Trading The Cream Of The Crop by Momma Gouche

When the Chicago Blackhawks, my favorite hockey team, traded my favorite player, Dustin Byfuglien to the Atlanta Thrashers, I was mighty upset. But then Atlanta moved to my hometown and the Winnipeg Jets. I couldn’t be happier! Then when Dave Boland, the chap who clinched the Stanley Cup for the Hawks, was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs, I was fit to be tied. Team …

While the, self appointed, aficionados of the Hockey world were touting their knowledge and proclaiming   … Boston in seven  … this life time fan of the Chicago Black Hawks, Momma Gouche, stuck to her guns … Hawks in 6  … and won.

A “Pat” For Kane by Momma Gouche

kerry Kerry Goulet

Goals by Patrick Kane in the first and second .. backed by Jonathon Toews … proved to be enough for the Chicago Blackhawks to take a 3-2 lead in the Stanley Cup playoffs Saturday night. The concern about Corey Crawford’s glove hand didn’t come into play, as Corey aptly swept aside 24 of the 25 shots aimed at him. Injured …

That Ugly Word = Overtime By Momma Gouche

After the Marathon 5 hour game it took for the Chicago Blackhawks to win the opener in the Stanley Cup finals I dread the very thought of the word. But here we go again in game four!  Going into the game the Hawks were down 2-1 games against the Boston Bruins. When the Hawks got a short handed goal by Michael Handzus in …

On The Wings Of A Prayer by Momma Gouche

kerry Kerry Goulet

The Chicago Blackhawks pulled it off once with a 3-1 deficit., but now they are in a real crunch, with the Cup on the line. Not only did they lose 71 percent of the faceoffs, but their power play efforts were non existent..The lack of Marion Hossa on the roster was certainly missed, but only the Great Gretzky was a “one man team”. …
