Blackhawks-Red Wings Recap
Andrew Ladd had the first hat trick of the season for the Blackhawks, scoring three of the Hawks’ four goals. Unfortunately, four goals wasn’t enough on Sunday, as the Hawks lost to Detroit 5-4.
Cristobal Huet ripped the heart of the team out by folding liks a sheet of notebook paper in the second period, allowing four goals on just eight shots in the period.
Despite all of the positive thinking and forced attempts to paint the Blackhawks goaltending situation as survivable, until one of the two settles down and grabs the job for himself, the Blackhawks achilles’ heel could keep them from achieving their One Goal this year. After Sunday’s debacle, coach Joel Quenneville indicated that he won’t comment on the starting goaltender situation until after practice, which means the Hawks still have a question mark on their most important position.

Trouble. Huet is not our man. Every hockey person knows our weakest position is in net. Why does the Chicago media always blame the “defensive breakdowns” and not write that in fact our goalie is horrible? What doesn’t make sense was Bowman’s comments about essentially not looking to make a trade. Really, you can’t be serious.
It’s too bad that Niemi couldn’t take the helm as our #1. What do you guys think it was with him? He went from giving up 1-2 goals a game to 4-5 during his multi-game starting stretch.
This team is stacked. Our depth is ridiculous. We in effect are playing with no goalie.
This photo pretty much sums up Huet’s performance, don’t you think?
Yeah… a position he actually learned from Pierre McGuire!
Holmstrom does that every game and the goals always count. Byfuglien looks at Howard wrong and no goal. I don’t get it.
