That was an interesting game to say the least. Harder to watch than the last one, but with a better start (not saying much). Hawks almost took it out of Vancouver's hands thanks to the new guy. I thought Ben Smith was going to win this game single handedly in the final seconds of play. Im very tired, so this will be short. Post your thoughts, I would love to hear them, and a longer post will be up sometime tomorrow morning.
Uncharted Territory for these 2 Teams. Vancouver takes a 2-0 lead in the series.
This game was proof that the goals don't all have to come off of the top line's stick, but it wouldn't hurt for them to score too. They got into Luongo's head a bit and it might help in Chicago. A clumsy game all around for the Hawks, a tad better in the physical department, but that didn't keep Bickell from leaving early. The defense was lost on too many occasions with little support from the offense, and the transition game was less than smooth.
Vancouver is proving to be a difficult challenge. Do the Hawks have what it takes? This is the first time they have trailed by a 2 goal deficit in a Vancouver series. Sunday night has now become a must win. The Hawks didn't fair so well in the last must win game.
Tell me what you liked, what you didn't like, or how badly Hossa, Campbell or Keith pissed you off.
Goodnight for now.
