Great deal for Cleary. Loved the guy while he was here. You always got 100% effort from him. Not a fan of his critics on here because he's a true Red Wing through and through. The guy basically destroyed his body for our team so you can't fault him for his declining performance.
Wow, playoffs haven't tasted this sweet in a while. Great shut-down effort by the whole team. Zetterberg turned captain composure into a clown. Howard was a black hole. Babcock was coaching circles around Quenneville to the point that he was convinced benching his stars was the best move. What a phenomenal night. I am still smiling about it.
Again, Chicago, you picked an awesome time for your first losing streak. Let's keep it running to 4!!
We all knew Hawks were favored to win it. At least we hung in there for two periods and shook off some butterflies. If we get bounces on Saturday we take home ice advantage and take it a game at a time. Howard will have to be huge because the shot differential was scary.
