A Look Inside: Blackhawks vs Predators

April 11, 2010

At the expense of being redundant, allow me to make a new post now that we know the whens and the wheres.

Here’s the full schedule (All times Central):

Friday, April 16 at Chicago, 7:30 p.m.
Sunday, April 18 at Chicago, 7:30 p.m.
Tuesday, April 20 at Nashville, 8:00 p.m.
Thursday, April 22 at Nashville, 7:30 p.m.
*Saturday, April 24 at Chicago, 2:00 p.m.
*Monday, April 26 at Nashville, TBD
*Wednesday, April 28 at Chicago, TBD

So I guess this gives us plenty of time for trash talk.  I’m hoping that this series makes for a bit more passion in the rivalry between the Hawks and Preds.  Right now there’s more of a minor annoyance between a majority of the fans.  The playoffs can change all of that in 4 to 7 games.  This is where hatred is bred.

Honestly, I’m a bit pissed that the series doesn’t start until Friday.  I was hoping it would start Wednesday, which would give us two days of rest before gameday.  But now we have to go all the way till Friday?  I can feel the anticipation building as I type (Actually that might be my blood pressure).

There are 3 series starting Wednesday, 4 on Thursday, and this is the only one starting Friday.  The layoff gives a bit of an edge to the Preds, since they’re waiting for Patric Hornqvist and Denis Grebeshkov to rest up from their bumps and bruises.  Hopefully in that time we can get some word on Brouwer, Johnsson, and anyone else who has some aches and pains.

In case you forgot how awesome the playoffs were last year, check out this video.

Get excited Hawks fans.  We’ve waited all year for this.  We’re 16 wins away from the Cup.  For being so close, it still feels so far away.  Its going to be a fun ride.

    did you see that video got taken down and that guy’s account disabled?? I only know that because I’ve basically watched it twice a day since seeing it here, I love it.

    Killed for copyright violations etc I guess, but that’s F’d. Those CBC videos are awesome. Got any other good Stanley Cup build-up videos to recommend?

      Pretty much every hockey video I’ve ever watched has been from Hockey Webcast. I talked to him yesterday about it and he said he saved all his videos on external hard drives and hopes to be back soon under a different username. The account was suspended because of some obscure video uploaded over 2 years ago. I’ll do some searching for more videos though.
