Well, now it’s interesting.
Duncan Keith – Duncan Keith is good. Joel Quenneville did a lot of line juggling during the game but none of that changed the fact that the Hawks are a different team when Keith’s on the ice. The lack of defensive depth may finally be catching up with the Hawks.
Corey Crawford – Head up, Crow, you deserved better than this garbage.
Alex Steen and Vladmir Tarasenko – they’re both really good. The Hawks should probably watch these guys.
Trade Deadline Acquisitions – What to Andrew Ladd, Tomas Fleischmann, Dale Weise and Christian Erhoff have in common? I’ll let you know if I see any of them.
TVR/Roszival – TVR probably deserves his own plaque in this section, but pairing him with Rozie is just an extra special turd sundae with cat litter on top.
Patrick Kane – the Hawks in general were guilty of too many cutesy passes, but Kane was the easy leader in this category, and it led to a number of near disastrous turnovers.
Penalty Kill – Terrible, just terrible.
A tie between the Roszival/TVR turnover that led to the Blues 4th goal and Duncan Keith’s crazy fluttering nine-iron that gave the Hawks their 3rd.
“and then Steve Ott doing what he does”
I assume he’s gnawhing on old melon husks he found in the garbage
