A Wild, Weird Weekend Of Fail For The Good Team

by Ricky O'Donnell on January 11, 2010 at 3:23PM

Is Good Huet-Bad Huet the new Good Rex-Bad Rex?

Things That Happened To The 'Hawks This Weekend

  • Blew a four goal third period lead against the Wild, lost in overtime.
  • Out-shot the Ducks 43-12, lost.
  • Patrick Kane's point streak was snapped at 11 games.
I think everyone had to the same reaction to Saturday's game against the Wild: "isn't that what the 'Hawks are supposed to do?". The 'Hawks have just been so good for so long at this point, it's almost impossible to imagine them blowing such a huge third period lead to a mediocre team. I guess you can only pull off so many miracle comebacks though until someone turns the trick on you.

I hate pin the blame on Huet - because he really has been solid since since a rough first month - but it appears he's mostly responsible for this one. Sez Fifth Feather:

Giving up a lead like that is a group effort, indeed.  But, four goals on seven third period shots and no real scoring chances calls one person in particular into question: Cristobal Huet.  He saw only 12 shots during the first two periods - surrendering a goal on a nice play by Martin Havlat - but was unable to keep the pace in the third.
If you're wondering, yes: this is another reason to hate Minnesota.

So the 'Hawks turned to backup goalie sensation Antti Niemi last night against the Ducks, but even he couldn't right the ship. As noted above, the 'Hawks peppered Anaheim with shots, but could only get one through. It's unusual, considering the 'Hawks had scored three or more goals in the previous ten games. Then again, if I learned one thing from my youth, it's don't mess with Goldberg.

Still, our Blackhawks remain No. 1 in ESPN's power rankings this week, so it can't be all bad.

If we can't trust power rankings, who can we trust, America?

I love how we tend to scoff at power rankings in the sports we know about, but in the ones we don't, they're our main indicators.

Perhaps this is one of the most interesting blogs that I have ever seen. Interesting article, Funny comment. Keep it up!
