GG Hawks boys


Arcaninemaster69

That was the sickest celly lol hot stick


DelitasChild

That being said, Chicago absolutely earned that point tonight. Those hawk boys have no quit. Hope they turn it around for you guys!


AnwarSadatsDog

NJD so much fun to watch. Hope yall Playoff it.


AnwarSadatsDog

Lmao Gustaffson was owned, Lankinen was in another county by the time Hughes went backhand. Was great. Good on him.


DiamondBurInTheRough

Gus is the weakest defensively minded defenseman on the roster and Colliton put him out there for OT…


AnwarSadatsDog

Should get Colliton fired. Straight up. Montreal knew enough to give Gus no more than 5 minutes a GAME in the stanley cup playoffs for a reason.


Disappearingbox

Just want to point out Graves boxing out the Hawks defender, keeping the net open for Hughes

Good Lord, what a fucking goal!!

LET FUCKING GOOOOOOO Fuck it was worth it just for that goal. My man scores and then throws his stick into the crowd

[*Hooray Chicago salvaged a point*](https://thumbs.gfycat.com/FloweryDefiantDore.webp)


Grawgar

That was unnecessarily stressful. Let's not do this again, but of course, the Devils will do this at least 20 more times.


Zac91142

That was filthy


NoMirror3707

Can't be pulling that shit in OT Kirbs


MysteriousCult

Welp, lankinen just got straight outmaneuvered there. Thats unfortunate


DiamondBurInTheRough

Fuck you, Colliton, you don’t even deserve malort. No liquor for you. Stay sober and bask in your failure.


DelitasChild

THE MADMAN THREW HIS STICK INTO THE CROWD LMAO


badscene518

JACK FUCKING HUGHES


StarchyAndDelicious

Please please please fire Colliton now


jdemerol

DIRTY FUCKING DANGLES JACK


Stupid_Sexy_Sharp

That was pretty fucking nasty. But a point!


PompousWombat

Ahh yes. THAT'S the defense we know and love.


Ever_Raiden

JACKJACKJACKJACK


northernpace

He threw his fucking stick into the crowd! That was awesome


XBM04

Wow. Nasty


SuperSirius21

Holy fuck that was insanely slick


emwashe

wow the patience by hughes


BCharmer

Gorgeous


TimeForFrance

We didn't even really deserve the point so I can't be too mad about that. Sick goal, sweet celly, good game.


kjpatto23

Yea that was a bad play by dach


itsalwaysbeen

I called that tally, btw. What did I win?


Keithfert488

Why can't I find this game on espn+?


NoMirror3707

It was on NHL Network, which gets exclusives for some ungodly reason


ReseesRKingCandy

JACK HUGHES BABY


apache_sun_king

We're going all the way baby!


yeahdudeo

What a big dick celebration launching your stick into the crowd


CastleRock_

kane: the puck is lava in the defensive zone


GoldWhale

Not at all Kane's fault. Went back really damn well, that's on Gus


CastleRock_

I mean, Kane was in position and just stared at Hughes instead of putting a body on him. But yes, it was more Dach's fault. I'd say Gus was least at fault in that whole play lol


GoldWhale

Kane couldn't put the body on him - forward momentum doesn't allow him to adjust over that fast since Hughes cut across the front of the net. He plays defense to the left half of the net which is completely empty because Lanks is out on the puck. When it crosses the middle it becomes the responsibility of the man in the slot and the far player coming down on the right. Kane was the only one who did his job.


manhaterxxx

He’s standing next to the net while our goalie is 6ft out. He’s gotta do something.


GoldWhale

He's playing coverage defense which is about all he can do in that position. Gus tries to lay the body down and leaves that entire half of the net open. If Kane isn't there it's an easy goal on that side. The slot is the responsibility of Gus and the man coming down last on the drive. Kane was the only one doing his job.


Grawgar

JACK!!!!!


JSav7

Oh my God, I want to ejaculate right now! e: I should say e-Jack-ulate!

HOLY SHIT JACK


Skylightt

HOLY FUCK JACK!!


unsungzero1027

Welp… idk how I feel about this. But, at least we’ll have more points than the rangers?


NightWing_91

That's always a plus lol


Skylightt

I mean it'll help more if it was a regulation win but we also would've been deprived of that goal. So I'll call it even


Franzblau

Makes no difference—we got an OT win that is just as valuable as a regulation win in tiebreakers (I believe) and gave an extra point to a team not in our conference. So it’s as good of a win as we can ever technically earn.


Skylightt

I could be wrong but I think they changed it from having regulation and OT being equal to regulation being weighted more


Franzblau

Just looked it up. You are correct! So not completely ideal for tiebreaker… but if the Devils are in the playoff hunt enough for tiebreakers to matter, I’ll see that as a major win!


itsalwaysbeen

Seriously, that was great. I'm sorry it was against you, Devilbros. I've seen us try that probably 100 times in the last few seasons and that's the first I've seen it work. So many 1 goal losses in recent memory.


redbluegreenyellow

i fully expect for us to lose this, but please win


DiamondBurInTheRough

IF WE LOSE IN OT IM GONNA REPLACE COLLITONS FAVORITE LIQUOR IN HIS LIQUOR CABINET WITH MALORT


tittiesfucker

:(

ReseesRKingCandy

I know the devils blew the lead but I think this is a playoff team. Bernier had to do a better job at stopping the puck and freezing.


Ever_Raiden

Still blows my mind they got fucking 4 for that.


manhaterxxx

I think it drew blood but Khaira just boarded one of your guys and the refs didn’t pay it, I’d be more mad about that


Skooter_McGaven

Subbans failed clears led to both of those goals.


O0OO-0O00

How tf can you review a missed call? Is that a thing?


Dalhoosie

Whos the ogre doing the colour for the NJ broadcast?


Skylightt

Jesse Ventura


DelitasChild

Ken Daneyko


AnwarSadatsDog

Should absolutely be 4 on 3 first two minutes. Khaira crosschecked the living hell outta someone. So much for refs enforcing that I guess.


younggun92

tittiesfucker

The young guys in this team are so fun to watch


DelitasChild

Nothing like a late third period collapse


Skylightt

Pretty much any other time of game and I bet that's called a board


kjpatto23

Yea that should have been one too. But y’know refs don’t want to “influence the game”


BCharmer

It's a crock of shit. Hate that mentality they have. Call it as you see it.


Ever_Raiden

They already fucking did


Ever_Raiden

Eat shit you fucking bitch ref


Stupid_Sexy_Sharp

Hagel is the best player in the world


47rohin

I don't mean to exaggerate but I would die for Hagel


CastleRock_

I really thought they were just going to waltz right in and score right off the faceoff lol


kjpatto23

I know buffalo is a shit show but how the fuck did they let Hagel walk into our arms?


younggun92

Because they are a shit show. Who fired all their scouts so they didn't have any eyes on them.


Thehawkman2

this fucking team


PompousWombat

Kubs!!

Hagel is a fuckin beauty for that pass.

***HERE COME THE HAWKS???***


Skooter_McGaven

Lol Subban...again.


DiamondBurInTheRough

FUCK YES KUBS


tittiesfucker

I CANNOT BELIEVE IT WORKED


StarchyAndDelicious

Woo. We did it. Time to lose in OT


kjpatto23

Holy shit we actually did it


JSav7

Well I just audibly yelled FUCK so I hope that no one around me cares about language


TheIncredibleShrek

Seth Jones… worth it


PompousWombat

$10 million for that point. If we can get the extra, it will be a $5 million point and then we're onto something!

Lmfao

lol I knew it


mediaddiction

I'm all in on Kirby Dach though. And I have downloaded an obscene amount of situation specific Kirby game related gifs to prove it.


redbluegreenyellow

why did i think you were going to say you downloaded an obscene amount of kirby porn, what is the matter with me


tittiesfucker

Pull Lank again!


itsalwaysbeen

*ooooh* John calling them on the trap.


PompousWombat

So what have we decided to call Kirby? Anything catchy?


younggun92

Kirby works


Skylightt

Yeah his name itself is already cool


Skooter_McGaven

That's on Subban, you had a full swing at it go get it out and didn't even come close. That puck has to get out.


NoMirror3707

The Dach vs. Hughes stalemate continues


CastleRock_

score bug couldnt decide whether it wanted to show empty net or pp ha


StarchyAndDelicious

Good job kirbus


Ever_Raiden

Shouldn't have been fucking 4.


Skylightt

Looks like Dach's elite too just like Jack since they both learned how to score.


NoMirror3707

They clearly heard us talking

DACH! FINALLY!

JC, your car will remain scratch free….for tonight.

Imma poop on it tho


younggun92

DACHHHHH


Skylightt

This game's getting tied up


unsungzero1027

Stop willing things to happen, man.


itsalwaysbeen

I don't like this at all. It's bad and I feel bad.


DiamondBurInTheRough

If we don’t score here, I am going to key Collitons car.


kjpatto23

Still down to key it?


DiamondBurInTheRough

I mean…yeah, but I’ll resist.


tittiesfucker

They just scored now make another threat


DiamondBurInTheRough

If we don’t tie this up, I’m gonna…TP Collitons house.


tittiesfucker

It worked again!! More! More!


DiamondBurInTheRough

I tried….


tittiesfucker

I know *hugs*


itsalwaysbeen

I bet he drives an Audi.


PompousWombat

Same car Toews and Kane drive?


DiamondBurInTheRough

Allegedly


PompousWombat

We're not talking about ostriches Diamond.


TimeForFrance

You're off the hook this time, Jeremy.


Skylightt

The one good thing about being on a PK when the other team has an empty net is you can freely fire away


Zac91142

I swear they made the nets easier to come off this season. Probably good thing if so.


Ever_Raiden

Fuck I'm drunk boys


tittiesfucker

Turn out it doesn’t matter how long the pp is if you cant get it up


Skylightt

Damn we could've gotten a Double Dougie. WHAM WHAM!


DelitasChild

Hawks going to 6-4 us with 5 minutes left is bold


manhaterxxx

$10 we don’t even get 5 shots in a 4min man advantage


SevenwithaT

Dude, does Kane have like 50+ mins of ice time or is it just me


mediaddiction

I imagine his stat sheet reading "all of it"


OurHausdorf

“TOI: Yes”


mediaddiction

I imagine that's what Connor McDavid's says


younggun92

No, he'll be around 25-30 all year unless we go up big.


TimeForFrance

That's our standard desperation tactic.


StarchyAndDelicious

Best chance all pp was short handed


younggun92

Pain


unsungzero1027

A linesman better have brought that to the refs attention or else it’s a BS call. A player can’t go plead his case to get a call. Sigh… whatever. It’s the right call, but man these are getting old.


Skooter_McGaven

What were they reviewing exactly? Can you review a missed penalty?


unsungzero1027

For something like this situation a linesman can bring this to a refs attention. They can then call the double minor and then review if it was caused by a devils stick or not. Then it either stands or is completely dropped. Edit: it’s only for certain penalties / for major infractions. This just happens to be one of those cases they can review / have brought ti their attention and call from a linesman even if a ref misses it.


DelitasChild

Bernier threw himself into the net like Taker throwing Mankind off the hell in a cell lmao


Skylightt

lol And the net comes off again


whichwitch9

In Bernier's defense, he was airborne


mediaddiction

Ok. Ok. Hear me out. I know this is crazy, but what if we, like... scored on the PP *twice* in one game?


NoMirror3707

Hawks strategy: 1) good PP, 2) short players more likely to get high sticked


Eggs_Bennett

Lol they’re acting like Mercer killed someone. They’ll both get over it.


TheIncredibleShrek

4 minutes to determine Colliton’s future?


whichwitch9

Oh that is such bullshit.


Thehawkman2

WAT


itsalwaysbeen

4 minutes! So we'll get 3 SoG and they'll get a shorty.


whichwitch9

.... Have you seen the Devils PK?

Any blood is an automatic double minor
