Okay, it’s Foxy Friday every day this week. And it’s raining hat tricks! Eric Staal and Jonathan Toews both lit the lamp 3 times each last night… whew! I am spent.
EStaaaaaaaaal, bless your almost-ginger heart. 3 goals (2 on the PP, 1 game winner), 2 assists, +4, 6 shots and a block. You know what this is? That’s 20.25 points for my fantasy team! You are my hero.
The Canes beat the Senators 7-1, cementing my decision to trade Alfredsson from my team. Can’t wait to see EStaal on his home ice for the All-Star Game. Bonus points for notching his 200th career goal and just generally being born into that ridiculous family.
Jonathan Toews also got 3 last night vs. Edmonton, and was interviewed twice during the broadcast. JACKPOT. His helmet is definitely too small because his forehead is always a mess in interviews. Maybe he can keep a hat that was tossed onto the ice. Video here – so smiley!
The best thing about game full of Toews – all the Toewsfaces you get to see. Hilarity captured forever. Also it’s nice to see the Hawks scoring some goals, as they’ve had a bit of a rough first quarter after their Stanley Cup win.
Another highlight of watching a Hawks game on FSN Chicago is that Toews & Kane star in every single commercial. There are two for Lemonheads (one is hilarious) and one of them driving in a Chevy that features some seriously homemade filmmaking. Further proof that the Blackhawks have more fun than any other team. I’ve searched high and low – I will find you that Lemonheads ad and screencap the heck out of it.Tags: carolina hurricanes, Chicago Blackhawks, eric staal, jonathan toews
