-- -- six NL and they had a six game road trip -- do you believe they will be. Ten you know and tied the all time best start. What I like to say yes absolutely but I had this to go ten and Nolan went for more on the road that's I think that's asking a lot. Glazer you're tired there are some guys on our talking on the -- remain eventually -- lockout has to take has to show its impact do you wanna sixties trip. After starting out on another -- very argument especially those like you -- get a little tired yet they go back to back Vancouver and Calgary without. And -- often -- -- got a ourselves a San Jose six and -- there Phoenix and there aren't right in Phoenix Tucson national C get time to look at their games already -- about two overtime games. Pin you know they'll know with the defending champ has been a tough start for them so to say there were brought their win all these games. I think you need to go out there and targets put. Stranger things have learned what it also so I didn't know don't. No way taking your opener with the kings and Phoenix here on. But split those friends and all of a sudden you sit at six -- it's an amazing they've never had it in the history of -- -- it's not like there sixteen NL you have six and I'll never in 85 years and never had that happen. Then. You know the clutch plays to an overtime when that that that's big for me to me it is you don't. Cause I can't break down hockey with a full volume but I conceivable proactive and it's a big time play their crucial situation that's with a new. And this is been the classic that everybody was talking about the best move that Stan Bowman made was no loops we deserve to finish the season will lock -- season and that -- Period of time that they had for training camp there there's a familiarity there that they already have chemistry and chemistry already -- about the goaltending because. How -- his staunchest critic at times. He's been outstanding he deserves all the credit so far through the six games. No question I would agree you have never been a big Corey Crawford then you -- -- you can't argue with the results you've seen so far. And I think guys read today Marian Hossa said that he even just seems bigger in the net you can feel like confidence coming off him and and other teams are gonna notice that too -- like it's in the psyche of everybody in the. His focus and he said after the game the other night with Suzanne because my focus is better. But I don't love that some Crawford and those guys are playing very high what do they do during the lockout what do they do want to stay in shape to keep that focus to keep their and the game is very easy. You don't know when the lockout could and -- the schedule going to be like really put Dave captain's practices fairly regularly Johnny Toews -- at. You had a bunch of guys playing in Rockford like letting. On the ice hogs -- -- -- -- guys overseas including Patrick Kane looks like he's in tremendous condition who does this -- has been here for the speed. Of the game -- you can practice all you want this -- ever replicate the speed and for these guys to do that. It's pretty impressive. Margaret because he'd he'd go back to the NFL lockout and that's where a lot of Castro out of training camp was getting back in the game shape. Mean I'd have to be in football shape get the hit.
