So I guess this is where I’m supposed to tell you that Jonathan Toews‘ dumbass fight against Joe Thornton, like, sparked the Chicago Blackhawks to victory against the San Jose Sharks or something? But really, the Blackhawks looked like the dominant team the entire game, so I don’t know if you can really spark something that’s clearly on fire already.
The fight took Toews off the ice for nine minutes and put his team on the penalty kill for four minutes for starting a fight with his visor on along with boarding. So, really, it was dumb and could have totally swung the momentum the Sharks’ way if the penalty kill wasn’t so on point this year. You lucked out this time, Toews.
Anyway, if you want to see the awful fight, it’s after the cut. Seriously, it’s terrible and embarrassing.
Ugh. Just… never fight, Toews. It’s like watching Adam Burish skate.
There was some pretty to make up for that. Like these moves from Patrick Kane…
Or this goal from Dave Bolland…
This Marcus Kruger goal was pretty slick, too.
But then there were more hot messes, like this Andrew Shaw goal…
And then this Niklas Hjalmarsson goal was just silly.
All in all, this was a ridiculous game.
The Blackhawks now have 25 out of a possible 28 points. They sit with a 11-0-3 record. Not too shabby.
Just make sure Toews never fights again. Seriously.
