The Hawks came into Game 2 tonight down 1-0 after falling in OT in Game 1. Not very much changed in terms of the lines except for the return of Duncan Keith and Richard Panik replacing Manshitter. So what happened in the game? Lets get to it:
Duncan Keith. Holy fuck balls is this guy good at hockey. Was on the ice for 31 minutes and had 2 points. One of which was the goal that tied the game in the second.
Corey Crawford. He’s healthy. And he can also hockey well.
The first period was boooooooooring. The Hawks didn’t have a shot until the 13:21 mark in the period and had a power play chance but of course, didn’t do anything with it.
The second period. Not only did the Hawks concede the lead but they couldn’t put the mother trucking puck in the mother trucking net. So many god damn opportunities. On top of that? Elliot looked pretty shitty.
THE CLUTCH (?)
With about 8 minutes left in the 3rd, TaraSHITko scored because of course. But wait there’s more. The Hawks video caught something and it seemed as though the Blooz were offsides. Sure enough they were. The game remained tied.
THE EVEN MORE CLUTCH
Just a few minutes later Andrew Shaw did a thing and got the puck in the net to give the Hawks the win.
THE MOST CORRECT TAKE OF THE NIGHT:
Trash being thrown on the ice in St. Louis, otherwise indistinguishable from the players in the blue sweaters
