SHOT THROUGH THE HEART: Devils 2 Blackhawks 1 (SO)

It wasn't supposed to be a Bed of Roses.

I Believe. I do. I thought the Hawks would be Wild In The Streets tonight against the Devils, but These Days if you're looking for Something To Believe In, you might as well ask the Hawks, "What Do You Got?"

The Blackhawks actually provided Work For The Working Man tonight, falling behind 1-0 and punting a 5-on-3 power play before tying it in the third period and losing in the shootout 2-1 to the New Jersey Devils in Prudential Arena in Newark.

Let's get to this:


THE GOOD:

Corey Crawford. While Martin Brodeur is King of the Mountain, Crawford proved to be Bad Medicine for the Devils tonight. The Hawks' defensemen left him alone too many times, but he told them, "I'll Be There For You". Seriously, the Hawks' blueliners need to get down low near Crawford and Never Say Goodbye.

Brent Seabrook. While waiting for Duncan Keith to Come Back, Seabrook started the game picking up the shoot-the-puck-into-the-defending-winger slack from Keith. But if you're a Hawks fan, his blast from the point in the third period made you Raise Your Hands as it passed Brodeur. His near-miss in overtime was just proof that You Live Before You Die.

THE BAD:

Patrick Kane. He should have been a Runaway and Let It Rock all night, but he seemed to be playing Roulette out there, sending the puck to anyone in red and black instead of just shooting it. He misses Jonathan Toews out there. Maybe Toews should call Benny Hihn and tell him, "Lay Your Hands On Me".

THE UGLY:

Sean O'Donnell. Is it still rink rust? Or is he just Livin' On A Prayer out there? Whatever the case, whenever's he's out on the ice, I need Something For The Pain.

Next for the Hawks is a Homebound Train for a Thursday night tilt with the red-hot St. Louis Blues. The entire Hockeenight crew will be in attendance. Hopefully the night doesn't end with us on a poster that says, "Wanted, Dead Or Alive"
