In other news,
the Blackhawks beat Vegas 3-1 yesterday, on the strength of Crawford stopping 49 out of 50 SOG. (insert big Rick Flair here!)
The Hawks D was not so hot, except for in front of the net, to help clear shots after Crow stopped them.
The Hawks D was also great at blocking shot attempts, and had over 30 at the beginning of the 3rd period.
The Hawks passing was dicey, or Vegas was great, or both, because it seemed like 4 out of 5 times we started an offensive series, Vegas just swooped in and took the puck away from us. I remember how we used to do that and wondered what the heck was happening.
Keith looked really good to me, and so did Kirby Dach, who seems to be coming along nicely, which is an appropos word, since he is being nice to others on the ice, and is often getting clobbered by the opponents' bigger guys, but I sense he is on his way to having had enough, and when he's there, he will be a Player. GO HAWKS!
