The Hawks are now officially in a slump. ;) Edmonton is up 4-0 after the 1st period.

Crazy game in Chicago today. Edmonton leads 6-4 after 2 periods and both teams have pulled their starting Goalie.

Oilers Win!  I damn near had a fucking heart attack.  Andrew Shaw is a pretty good instigator.  CH, Dubnyk wasn't pulled, he injured his neck in the 2nd.

6-5 final. At least the Hawks showed some heart.

Fun game to watch, even without the desired result (for us Hawks fans).

The Oilers always give the hawks trouble. I had expected "the streak" to end the last time they played.

Boston plays not to lose and loses 3-2 to Pittsburgh. Boston was winning 2-0 going into the 3rd period. For some reason, the Bruins went into a defensive shell and Pittsburgh scored three goals in the 3rd period. I hate Pittsburgh but I gotta say they never give up.

Sometimes Julien's decisions drive me nuts. I couldn't believe it when he puts the 4th line out there with about 90 seconds left and needing a goal. :X

It doesn't look like Julien was too pleased with the penalty call that gave Pittsburgh a 2-man advantage in the 3rd period:

Bettman: realignment vote wasn’t unanimous, but still passed easily

Jason Brough

Mar 14, 2013, 4:23 PM EDT

Not all 30 NHL teams voted for realignment, but according to commissioner Gary Bettman, the plan’s approval rate was “well in excess” of the three-quarters that was required.

Bettman — who held a conference call today with reporters — didn’t say which team(s) voted no, but if we were to speculate, it’s possible one of them was Tampa Bay. The Lightning will move into a division with their state rivals, the Florida Panthers, but also with six teams — the Bruins, Sabres, Maple Leafs, Red Wings, Senators and Canadiens — who are a significant distance away.

Lightning general Steve Yzerman said recently that the increased travel, along with the hassle associated with crossing the border to Canada, “are things that we don’t like about it for our organization.”

The Panthers, by the way, said today that they “certainly approve of and are very excited by the NHL’s realignment plan. Not only will we maintain and grow our in-state rivalry with the Lightning, but we will also be able to cultivate rivalries with some of the NHL’s most historic clubs.”

We imagine all the snowbirds that can be seen wearing Leafs and Habs jerseys at Panthers games also factored into the organization’s approval of the plan.

As for other teams that may have voted against realignment, this is pure speculation, but we wonder about the Chicago Blackhawks, who will lose their rivals from Detroit to the Eastern Conference while adding more trips to Winnipeg.

Also, how do Los Angeles, Anaheim, Phoenix and/or San Jose feel about losing Dallas as a division mate and making more long, cross-border trips to Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver?

Here's how the realignment map looks:








Right now they are referring to the Orange grouping as Division A, the Yellow as Division B, the Blue as Division C and the Green as Division D. Many are pushing to give each Division a name that has historical significance so my suggestion would be to call Division A the Gretzky Division, Division B the Hull Division, Division C the Orr Division and Division D the Clarke Division. If Mario wasn't part of the Penguins ownership group then I would call Division D the Lemieux Division.
