Here Come the Hawks *update*

As they enter tonight's game against rival Detroit the Chicago Blackhawks are a perfect 5-0.  That ties the 1971-72 team for the franchise record for consecutive wins to begin a season. UPDATE:  The Blackhawks killed off six power plays including a 5-3 and won the game in overtime 2-1 to set a new franchise record, 6-0.  In honor of both teams here are nine of the old guys on their classic 1971-72 Topps cards.







Here Come the Hawks, the mighty Blackhawks 
Take the attack, Yeah, and we'll back you Blackhawks 
You're flyin' high now, so let's wrap it up 
Let's go you Hawks, move off 
Now all look out, Here Come the Hawks, 
Here Come the Hawks, Here Come the Hawks, Here Come the Hawks, Here come the Hawks 

Here they come movin', weavin', flyin' high and throwin' spray, 
Blades flashin' sticks crashin' tryin' for the play,
And the Blackhawks, take control,
There's a shot, AND A GOAL!

Here Come the Hawks, the mighty Blackhawks 
Take the attack, Yeah, and we'll back you Blackhawks 
You're flying high now, so let's wrap it up 
Let's go you Hawks, move off 
Now all look out, Here Come the Hawks 
Here Come the Hawks, Here Come the Hawks, Here Come the Hawks, Here come the Hawks 


Here Come the Hawks, the mighty Blackhawks 
Take the attack, Yeah, and we'll back you Blackhawks 
You're flying high now, so let's wrap it up 
Let's go you Hawks, move off
Now all look out, Here Come the Hawks, Here Come the Hawks, Here Come the Hawks, Here Come the Hawks, 
Here Come the Hawks, Here Come the Hawks, Here Come the Hawks, Here Come the Hawks, 
Here Come the Hawks, Here Come the Hawks, Here (trails off)

  1. I don't follow hockey intensley, but quite casually. The teams I follow, for various reasons, are the Avalanche, the Sabres, and yes, the Blackhawks. So, I've noticed (who hasn't?) the "Black Hawks" hot start. Good stuff.

    Great looking cards!
