Mitch took a sack in the 4th Qtr, they were driving it was 3rd down, but what no one will talk about is the guy Mitch is looking at gets hit by his own teammate on the route, WTF

Posted at JJ's site a few hours ago and then read your thoughts, Tyler. Guess I see the same things you guys did/do. Thought I'd share what I posted at JJ's as it fits the theme of your blog:


Yep, solid effort by the Hawks. They won the fancy battle 50.6 to 49.4 CF, FO’s 52 to 48%, hits 35-26, SOG were 31-31 and were close in blocks 14-12……. They were a hungry team and the stats show that.

Got a text from a buddy during the game, Crawford looks good. The last two games he’s looked very quick, light on his feet and efficient. He often overplays pucks when not in rythem and he’s in rythem right now.

Which brings me to Lehner. Logical at season’s start Lehner would push Crow and that’s playing out. If Crow wants the net he’s gonna have to go save for save with a 27 yr old guy playing for a contract that can throw up a .925/.930 SPG over a yr.

Here’s my point. The Hawks seem to have the better goalie in net most nights and have enough guys who can score. D is not their strong suit but with the goaltending why not open the thing up and play track meet hockey instead of focusing the system with the “current” personnel on trying to fix their own end? ………. Hell even Boqvist would do well in this system and we know Gus does.

IIRC they played at a 100 point pace after Jan 1 with last yrs personnel in the run and gun system and this yrs personnel is better……….. Today the Hawks are at the bottom of xGF% at 44.61 under the lets fix the Dzone system. Last yr they were in the middle of the pack at 48.47 with poor goaltending, worse Dman and without Shaw/Carpenter/Kubalik/Nylander.

I say let er rip and trade chances.

Or, at least, change things up like you suggest, for one period to catch teams off guard. Pitt was begging to be beaten last night. Win or lose, our collective style doesn't appear to be as much fun to play. Very much impressed with your post.

Bears offensive woes have allowed the defense to escape some much needed scrutiny......

I hope I don't have too good of a game for the Leafs.

Why is that an extra penalty? Muzzle dropped his gloves.

FWIW, the 6 defensemen skating for the Blackhawks tonight are better, as a group, than the 6 skating for the Maple Leafs

They didn’t call the interference when the TOR D hit Saad without the puck. 19 started the scrum and got the extra 2.
