Blackhawks '18-'19

Captain Trips-ville, Planet Houston
Like I said, the Leafs game is the biggest of the season. Nice to see Perlini get untracked. Even better to see another good defensive result.

Nice to see improvement as the season has progressed. Two games in a row of solid team D. Crawford getting back in the saddle. Toews still has gas left in the tank.

Team #NoImprovments is 17-10-3 since Christmas. That’s a 101 point pace.

Most of which done without a starting goaltender too.

Kane's backcheck strip yesterday was Hossa-like. Maybe the Captain isn't washed up. Love the evolving passing chemistry, it's fun to watch.

That wasn't pretty there at the end, but holy cow.
I didn't see any of the first two periods. Crawford was in and left due to illness. Was the near meltdown in the third due to Delia being in goal or were they just trying not to squander the four goal lead at that time? The third period was horrendous.

Combo of things. Delia's rebound control was awful. Obviously, Leafs had a full court press on and we frequently failed to get it out. 30 shots, what the heck? The absolute worst was Keith's pass/turnover that directly led to Tavares' goal. Unbelievable.

What about Seabrook in the last ten seconds? Good grief. Delia did give up a lot of rebounds but also made some huge saves. And thirty shots in the period. Oh well, on to Montreal.

I think I jumped into the game when it just turned 5-2. Yeah, it definitely seemed liked it was 6-5 for that time. Definitely bad turnovers by Keith and Seabrook but two points is two points. Just glad they are getting points. On to the next one.
 
Sure, it wasn't pretty, but it's a road win over a very good team. Let's see if the Hawks have one more big run in them. Another road win at Montreal tomorrow would be huge.

Maybe Crawford’s best game ever. Perlini keeps rolling. I think he has played his way on to next years team.

Not sure about the best, but Crow was stellar. Perlini has cemented a top 9 spot on next season's roster. He'll get a 2 year bridge for $1.5-1.75M per.

The Yotes have TB and us still, so there's a chance they'll stumble. Gotta keep winning.

Too deep of a hole. Nevertheless, much to be positive about: $20M cap space. Another high pick. Top 10 team since December 12th. Young players stepping up. Colliton proving he can coach. Crow back. Gus emerging as an offensive standout. Elite D prospects one year closer.
 
They have done it Tess!

As a Sox, Bulls, Blackhawks, Bears and Illini fan, I feel as if I have been using this exact comment, over and over and over again at the end of seasons. The Bears have worked their way out of this, but man, I picked the wrong decade to stop sniffing glue.
