Couple of thoughts I have had last couple of days:
1. I am not sure why Toews is crying about being roughed up a bit... the majority of it is right in front of the net or on rebounds (some on the boards during forechecking, very little open ice hits)... Does he think because he is a star that he is entitled to his freedom while in front of the net trying to jump on rebounds? Have to give him credit that not a lot of stars muck it up in that area, but if he does he is going to get roughed up, sorry Jonny.
2. I really think the Anaheim forecheck (so far) has been better than the Hawks. And it really got us ready to handle the Hawks forecheck. Hawks may have more in them that they haven't shown us yet and it is possible for them to out forecheck what Anaheim threw at us, but I really think we got good practice in Anaheim.
