The CTL panel looks back on the Blackhawks' shootout loss to the Wild Wednesday night - 1/31
Blackhawks got great play at a Corey Crawford but this shot right here. Drew iron rather than finding the back of the net. And that sent the Hawks to their first lost a shoot out loss in Minnesota to walk out the half of the game last they would barrier thing is I've. Been busy doing US TA decision bishops and I was -- weddings and that was the first Palin and John are actually human Michelle Kwan do some good news is that we're ready yet so I'm. That was the -- -- whole -- -- I'll watch last night of the last thirty minutes of regulation they were lights out and I don't know how they didn't score six goals I mean it was a terrific hockey wise and I -- pressure on the -- it was gonna. When Cain has been on that turnaround and overtime I thought for sure it was it was really hot and a very general demand defenseman got in his way but. They're playing really well I'm Tony would deal wow wow I mean he made four or five saves and goalie like stays on their -- -- particularly on the five on three. In the mean that that looks like a very good there I was playing with the freewheeling style they did when they won the cup and and now so far Crawford doing very well and that's. I thought their penalty kill on the five on three who's normally see a five on three it's still 45 seconds I mean it was over -- there's like a -- fifteen. And I was with the former NHL player at the time we're watching it. Together and he thought the strategy how they attacked that five on three was really -- hang on that -- I don't wanna give away one name drop what you do -- but. He could Crawford and not make a great save during that yelled we dove across for Crawford's been phenomenal I was impressed so they figured out how to winning it's the Red Wings even -- in the third period. They look yelled lifeless they were able to get a goal before fourth it seems like this year vs last year. Bounces going their way and hockey I feel like that's very very important yeah you know the system is working. In my decision sometimes -- Bucs gonna bounce your way and sometimes you. It won't talk to Tim and Eric interesting to see how they respond to do so first loss for me and it's it's incredible that -- so. Screwed. As -- -- -- -- -- like -- gonna kill off an overtime with the you know the loss they got to they got to a point a couple pointed out exactly. So I'll be on the right now that do a lot of things right and and numb. You know Crawford did make garish shootouts are students they can't really judge and remember he made some huge saves when they needed them that was an unbelievable -- and -- on the five on three. The story of the game though is that. The back from comes in Tibet you know after the first goal is -- -- -- pole and he makes twenty saves I mean you know -- that's got to be you're sitting on the bench. It's freezing on the ice and all of a sudden like oh by the way your and you're -- and you're playing the best team in hockey and he makes 28 saves and is outstanding. I I think coming off the bench. I I know back a quarterback is probably number one as far as -- position just to go up and play back up goalie -- Michael goalie Chris here's the thing. It's not like you're in the butterfly stance for like -- -- -- briskly -- -- -- like -- -- right it's go time in the garage that would thirty pounds of equipment on he was phenomenal he was the story again Garland had an animal on stopping. Yes -- like eighteen to six overwhelm the Blackhawks coach harmonization is 601 stretch in the second and third periods and he makes a big save after big series upset and smother every rebound.
