  1. I am calling it again. Hawks WIN tonight! it is 6:20 p.m. on Friday night. Just a hunch i have

  2. Well Brian if I were you play the lottery any time soon not only did we not when we got out worked out hustled and out played (them boys seem tired to me who made this crazy schedule anyway) but this is a guarantee we will kick the tips butt before the end of the season and if we do make the playoffs I want them in the first round so we can send em packen

    see ya all at the next home game now that JJJ are gone I can support my boys again!!!!!!!!!

  3. Wel i was wrong. The Hawks looked good for the first 10 minutes, but were completely dominated the rest of the game, especially in the 2nd period.

    The Hawks looked slow and out of rythem most of the night. Congrats to Joel Ridgeway for your 1st WHL goal too bad in came in a loss, but good effort in the 3rd period. I which the entire team played that way the last 50 minutes of the game.

    Lets hope the T-birds feel strange at the Key arena tonight, we complain about the Hawks schedule, but the T-birds have played 20 road games and only 5 home games so far, and they are NOT complaining. However, the first game back at home after a road trip can feel like another road game.

    THe Hawks need to play with more energy and heart tonight.

    Brian in Sherwood in Everett and Seattle
