I have a wedding tonight
So I'm just gonna say 5-2 Hawks.
Team is pissing me off.
Finally an interference call.
Anytime Toews wants to win a PP faceoff would be fine.
Johnny Oduya is basically dead, isn't he?
Not a single Hawk looks comfortable. Was just saying I don't remember a draw 19 has won in 4 periods.
Team looks oddly frazzled. Possession is fine, but they never really get set up.
If Q can't see that Seabrook and Oduya shouldn't be paired, then he's delusional.
Well, certainly Nashville isn't wanting for luck so far.
This is not ideal.
Time for another terrible PP.
Maybe they find their game on the road?
Hartman and Schmaltz are failing quite spectacularly in their first couple playoff games.
Fuck this team to hell and back. Bunch of fucking homos.
Just get shut out all the way through. Make it memorable.
You have to wonder if tanking the last few weeks wasn't a great idea after all.
I try not to get hung up on the hits numbers, but three guys were surrounding the goal scorer there and no one thought to get a body on him.
Kimmo Oduya looks just fantastic.
Gonna need to win 4 of 5. Great job fuckers.
They have to win the next two. If they split in Nashville no way they win three straight
Has Oduya played 40 mins tonight?
I don't think I have ever seen someone play this successful a checking game against the Hawks.
I caught about 6 minutes of this game after umping before heading back out. It was enough.
I know this is not all on Crow, but my guess is we will see Darling Monday night
I'd trot out Darling for game 3. We're grasping at straws time.
At least the Hartman shitshow will have a one game vacation.
Maybe you won't be watching the game next Saturday at the kraft kave

What the fucking fuck? I haven't been paying attention recently, but what the fuck is happening right now?
Laviolette has out-Q'd Quenneville so far. He has forced the Hawks into a dump-and-chase style and they are not getting the work done in the corners and on the boards. It hasn't helped that every single bounce has gone Nashville's way. Or maybe the Hawks just thought they were going to phone this series in. Or perhaps the Preds just want it more.
Or all of the above. But you can't win if you don't score and we haven't.
But we have been here before. This ain't over yet.
This is not the same type of group that could overcome these things. There's no proven depth here. The 13-15 teams had a lot of depth guys they just haven't replaced (we know the names). The D now has one guy that can break a trap and he doesn't seem to be interested.
I don't think there are line changes that will fix this. Nashville has 3 top 6 forwards, but it doesn't matter if they only have to play half the ice with their d-men right behind them. Get a lead, make them play 200 feet, and expose the lack of talent. Or don't, and be golfing next weekend. Whatever at this point.
That's the key, get a lead. Make them play offense.
Fitting for tonight's effort
How about we just get a goddamn goal?
Hawks haven't held possession inside the blue line in like 12 minutes...
Getting completely dominated.
Hard to see them scoring even strength tonight and seems like it's only a matter of time until the Preds get one. Badly needed that period to end.
Dodged some huge artillery that period.
Figured the icebreaker would be a greasy one
The end of that period was like a 10 minute PK
This is excruciating.
No shit, just getting worked the entire fucking time. It is a damn miracle that they are ahead at this point.
Feels like they need one on this PP to get some breathing room.
Time to get our PP going...
