Talk Amongst Yourselves – Chicago edges San Jose 4-3

Jan 15, 2012, 10:05 PM EDT

The comments section is open. Go say what you think. No big whoop.

We’ll give you some topics:

—- Corey Crawford keeps piling up wins even though he’s producing pretty mediocre work. Can the Blackhawks be a legitimate Cup contender with Crawford in net?

—- Patrick Kane still can’t seem to score some goals. Should Chicago be worried or is this just a phase, like growing a playoff mullet?

—- Antti Niemi didn’t get the win, but he’s been great this season. Where does he rank among the NHL’s most underrated goalies? (The guy has a ring, after all.)

—- How much of Viktor Stalberg‘s success is sheer linemate luck? The Blackhawks probably don’t care because either way, he ended up with a goal and an assist tonight.

—- Chicago out-shot San Jose by the jarring margin of 40-24. Remember when the Sharks used to do that all the time?

Now go, talk amongst yourselves.

    Niemi has not been great this year, and he has been more inconsistent then ever. He matches the play of Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau. A few good games, then a few bad games, which in the playoffs gets you nowhere.

    Viktor Stahlberg is underrated. He’s a big guy that can skate real well and has some good offensive skills.

    only two more sleeps now until my Kings come to town here and pay a visit to the Sisters … so all you car flippers and arsonists had better watch out, because you guys are gonna seriously “get it” this time ! … there’s a reason why we’re called the “Kings” and you people are called the “Sisters” ! … you guys can bring all the brassieres you like to Rogers Arena on Tuesday night, but ain’t gonna make a difference … you heathens are going to be dealt with ! … the LA Kings rule man ! :)

    Kaner needs to spend less time stickhandling and just take more shots. He tries to be too cute w/the puck.

    Does that idiot know this article has nothing to do with the Canucks?
