Come Back Home Blackhawks

stalberg.jpeg

This is it.

The Chicago Blackhawks are down their last bullet. Before things get any worse,the following players and a key component need to be found by before tonight's game.

Brent Seabrook
One of team's finest D-men has had a rough postseason thus far. Brent Seabrook has been missing in action during the Detroit series. Defense was a major strength during the record-breaking season; Seabrook was a major part of that. If you see him, please tell him that the Madison Street Hockey Club faithful are looking for him.

Jonathan Toews
Seeing Captain Serious in the penalty box was definitely something fans aren't used to seeing. The fans need the old Johnny Toews back. The one who's a Selke Trophy finalist. If you see him, please tell him that the Madison Street Hockey Club faithful are looking for him.

Dave Bolland
This was the player who does all the things you don't see on a stat sheet. The guy who frustrates opponents. Where is that guy? Has anyone seen him? If you do, tell him that the Madison Street Hockey Club faithful are looking for him.

The Power Play
The one thing the Blackhawks have done well is create opportunities to score goals via the power play. That's one thing, but cashing in on those opportunities is another. The Blackhawks want to get back into the series. A few power play goals could go a long way. If you've seen the power play, tell it that the Madison Street Hockey Club faithful are looking for it.

The fans aren't mad -- OK, a little, but they just want everyone to come home.
