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.
Ugh, this one didn't feel right from the start. We were out there blowing off major penalties and Howard was working way too hard. I got a ticket to game 6 hoping we could bring it home, but looks like we'll be playing with our backs to the walls.
