Kronwall had a great regular season offensively, but poor defensively.

In the playoffs, it's been the other way around. We need more out of him on the scoresheet.

Cleary was the closest forward backchecking. Quincey is taking away the pass, he makes a nice play but normally you don't expect the D man to pull over that far since the goalie has the shooter and D man takes the pass.

If anything Smith should've kept skating his ass off to pick up the trailer. Smith made a rookie mistake and everything broke down.

The lengths you guys go to bash Cleary has gotten comical at this point.

Defend his play on that PP now , please. Are you Cleary's father?

Cleary was the closest forward backchecking, and there was another teammate to his right. Quincey was covering the pass. As third man in, Cleary's job is to cover the slot.

The lengths you go to defend Cleary are baffling.

Zetterberg is neutered playing with Filppula and Cleary.

The lines worked in game 7, but I'd still rather see Datsyuk and Zetterberg together.

I'm saying it was a broken play. Cleary had a 50/50 shot at who he should cover.

Quincey covers the pass. Typically that means he stays in the middle. If Quincey stays in the middle to cover the pass, then Sharp could've walked in on the left side for a quality shot and you guys would be bashing Cleary for not covering him.

It's only in retrospect because Q made a sliding play towards Sharp that it seems obvious Cleary should've picked up the trailer.

I'm not defending Cleary. I'm pointing out that play was on Smith. But because Cleary is the scapegoat this year you'll even bash him for not guessing correctly on a broken play.

The end of the first period. At least they looked better than in Game 1. Sigh.

Not a bad period really. Just poor individual performances by the usual suspects that are hurting the team.

Put 40-13-8 back together. Z can't do much with Filppula and Cleary on his wings.

They played well but once again look like a team that doesn't know how to score. Crawford is giving up plenty of rebounds.

Out shot and out hit the hawks in their own building in the first....I guess we don't belong on the same ice.

Can we change the lines up during the intermission and maybe get some spark going? Z does not even look like the same player as Games 6 and 7.

Pretty good period minus Cleary and Smith's one play.

Yeah this. Despite all the pressure their forecheck is putting on us in our D zone, we've played pretty well. End even their goal needed a kindly bounce off the block. Crawford is giving up some juicy rebounds, one has to fall to us eventually.

We need someone for Z and D! It's been said before numerous times but it is so obvious right now. Kenny, part with some of your mancrushes and address the situation.

the situation.

Sorry, it's the alcohol.
