CTL: Hossa back on the ice
And some welcome news to practice today Brent Seabrook Corey Crawford back on the ice for the guy I have always glad to see. Marianne -- you know we left Tuesday's win over the Canucks. After getting hit from behind by -- Hanson. Post is set today he's very relieved that it wasn't as bad as the one he took from Rocky -- last April. Obviously O authored it hit he surprised me that I from behind in a pretty pretty high right back of the head and now. And -- right up. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- This morning I don't know about that much but it sort of went out and I've told our home. I kind I kind of knew what happened everything you know really realize what happened so that was good at that time. And now I listen to us shaky right up there and annoy you -- open -- -- bit like lost them because you know I didn't remember -- and I think we've -- -- -- game so -- -- I think you know. At least something because you know you don't wanna see guys hitting the other guys and had a -- from behind and from there aren't that good practice today yes I would use popular nicely -- Go to practice tomorrow and non eventful. Like to play. I -- also looks good sounds good but none of us are doctors and given the serious concussion he suffered last spring. You think it might be good idea all the money game action for once in a row because I think he it sounds like you did not suffer concussions because he said he never lost any memory and yeah it is jarring just to get smacked in the stall on me that's not a good feeling but it sounds like he really is a cut. Owner knows what dream world where Hanson and -- -- you know and when there was signs of a hockey. Like I watched the NHL's explanation of it and it was was very good about it post this cause -- you gotta be kidding me that's a hockey playoffs hockey player assault and battery is a hockey play that -- you get one game I think about golf I exactly I don't I think because he -- because. Apparently it is a proposal wasn't that badly injured but he could have been very bad news. There when I don't get about stuff like this is you know they talk about player safety and watching for concussions and making sure guys are. Being held accountable for what they do stuff like this and then yeah exactly the one game makes no sense as to it. You know because I didn't see I can play an area there in the more I watch at the last it looks like a hockey play and at least live. When you first side it looked like he might have been going for the puck but I and I don't see them at all -- -- seems like whenever there's a work stoppage in any major sport people wonder which teams -- gonna come out of its strong which teams will struggle I don't think anyone would have predicted the Blackhawks really not sixteen straight games is getting at least a point. What do you guys make of the Blackhawks start I'm just amazed by now that glanced -- it is -- -- amazing. But you just can't get too excited about it to because the nature of the NHL's all but the playoffs the playoffs in the last as long as the regular season so this year they -- right now and I think if they're good. What what's impressed me the first two periods against -- Julio and I've they were magnificent unfortunately they should've scored eight goals and put that game away. But -- -- that was just a beautiful display of hockey complete control of the game I doubt it was like seventeen to five shots or something in the second period. We see them play for stretches like -- forty minutes of astonishing hockey I mean it's it's. That they're very good team but they're not that much better embryos but they are definitely a very good team and they caught some breaks that obviously that game in Calgary they never threw one but they managed to win it. Yeah -- the skill players are playing with with greats -- mean a top of their game skill. The worry is Teddy says -- -- you get into the playoffs and then you know if your goaltender. Might have been as sharp as soon as he has been -- they have been throughout the whole season. And then you struggle and questions always come back to Crawford in an Emery and you know so far and Crawford's been great and let's hope it it continues and memories and great to Calgary game as you said that game is a lost without him. But you know -- is gonna come down in the -- they certainly are starting upgrade and it's it's hard not to get excited that you're trying to not get -- looks. And the amazing thing it's largely the same roster is a year ago and they are the dominant team in the NHL right now. Remember the Blackhawks go for the record tomorrow night we've got the game right here on Comcast sports net. He'll be Blackhawks against the San Jose Sharks pregame live pat Boyle and Steve Conroy sets the table 7 o'clock. And pat Foley and Eddie also have a called Hawks go for seventeen straight with at least a point of the game. Faces off at 730.
The Blackhawks' Marian Hossa returned to practice today and said he's grateful his latest hit to the head wasn't as bad as the one he suffered in last year's playoffs - 2/21
