The Chicago Blackhawks took the lead early in the contest against the St. Louis Blues last night, and even with the advantage of a player seemed extremely fragile from the start. This player was of course Trevor van Riemsdyk rummaging washers early in the game, and struggling to clear pucks deep in his own end.
The fact that TVR was with Duncan Keith Jersey to hide it appears as a tactical error by Joel Quenneville instead to bury it in the third match as Q is usually and just play it only in optimal situations instead of throwing there when the Hawks needed solid minutes of their defender.
TVR first penalty ended in the back of the net when the St. Louis Blues scored on their first power play. Frustrations with TVR continued in the third period when he was called for boarding on a game that looked like it could have been eased on the check instead of causing the Hawks to return to the penalty kill when they need to return the offense with the Hawks trailing 3-2.
The good news is that TVR Niklas Hjalmarsson was suspended for one game, which should mean that TVR will be watching the Pressbox for the foreseeable future.

Forsling be turned on defense so it’s not like he’s a perfect defender, but he has the look of a player who will be around for a long time a.
Patrick Kane was in a rare position last season, playing with his trio mates Artemi Panarin Artem Anisimov and for almost the entire season. His chemistry with Panarin was particularly notable.
Now Kane and Panarin might be separated because the Blackhawks need more than one line to work this season. Asked about the potential split Saturday night, Kane’s answer was diplomatic.
“Last year, I think, is probably the only year that I really only played with some players, so I’m used to playing everywhere, playing with different guys,” said Kane. “We’ll see what happens. I know they wanted to try something different to the game tonight and perhaps throughout the preseason, so I’ll just play where they tell me to play , I suppose “. Continue reading
