Insider Tracey Myers checks in on CTL to discuss the Blackhawks' shootout loss to the Ducks - 2/13
Joining us now are CSN Chicago dot com Blackhawks insider Tracey Myers. They get a point what was the mood like in the locker room less -- the dressing room excuse me you can kind of yet it was. Quiet and found that. I just kind of took it is okay they weren't happy with the fact that they had a lead late. And this was not one of their best games they've played this year it as far as I was concerned he still had a late lead. And you don't -- the power play kids at the end this was not a happy group it was pretty clear out. Eleven actually yeah I heard it was what it was Crawford and who rules there's only when you're Crawford I think sadness in their eyes and I grabbed stopper when -- in and out -- -- I -- after games they just. Players have a choice of the wanna talk and a I think so yeah and found if it was just very very quiet out of the kind of surprised because city you know they did get the points through and like I said turf for how they played in. You know it's one of the finest performances yet they weren't happy which. I mean obviously the bar set high so it's good but -- pretty quiet. Officially get the condensed schedule this year and I -- shootouts have we have word but Patrick had. Torres really -- yeah how can sort of injury and how concerned are they that the shootouts are going to start. Taking its -- Well as the condensed schedule. Yeah yeah outline and won because of extra time into the fact that they're not winning -- they wanna -- in Calgary but that's -- it again it's it's just extra time that your playing. Canada could be the only ones who were doing this but yeah I mean any time that you have a situation where you're just putting. Five -- each game I mean that's gonna start and nothing. Obviously they're not happy with the -- his record is come out either. Place is really concerned coming home the reason -- guess that's fair to -- -- now you play your home -- but. Come a long road trip recycled business trip must play in the NFL kid who gives -- much easier no doubt about tickets at the hotel get in the plane don't know who is argue. And I have always distractions -- Absolutely and and a lot of them talked about that just decides on ice specifically. And there's a certain style of game also -- you -- on the road it's it's a very. Distraction free it's a very simple game and and that probably talked about when they're on the road is okay. While we get home we need to repeat this. Exactly and victors Robertson at the other day he said we had a habit of getting a little too. Fancier and the only need to put on a shelf. It United's. -- so safe that was a thing you need could kind of see glimpses of that last night it's an okay did it'll pass happy end. -- you know instead just buckling down and playing the game that they had on the road and and yet. Point there. Ride back to the shootout Corey Crawford not too bad in shootouts take a look at today's daily list -- active goalies and at least fifty Q I'm just. Crawford is eighth with a 746 save percentage look at some of the goalies he's ahead of golf mark hamburger yards -- a locked -- Detroit. Revert all the while the ball he works in the shoot out for their career interest think. And Cincinnati you know part of that. I think last night -- couple nights that that they had -- -- is it lean on virtually Korea's been on the short end of that but -- -- for the Blackhawks got through so it you know I mean sooner or later somebody's got to help them on on the present the F that is introducing I never thought that and here's. Great stat that -- Camp guards that guy came up with OK if you go back to. Blackhawk shoot up -- down the last two seasons they've only gotten two goals true goal in all the shoot out games from someone not named Pedro came. Gap and yeah I. And I obviously I'm I'm not a hockey player in or anything like that -- I'm assuming issued out. I think some pass these guys trying get too fancy they try to over think things then you look at Jonathan cases shot last night it wasn't anything. You know overly done or anything need to swoops in and goes five hole and end of story now -- Every now and then he slows down when it works its highlight real -- when it doesn't work it's just out for God's -- she's heated up and ninety's he's better off speeding up personally. But I do wonder if some of these guys just kind of over think this and and prayed inside you know I got and how much. She's got experience he has but it out and other thing is I think a lot of these guys need to look at shots. Sit -- you know thought last night was just a very low. Center gravity goaltender and you know to get the shots of the hopes do. We think the the averages -- you that's for all players in the NHL home it's probably night. Parade they make -- 25% of my eye and I'm guessing I mean you've got a taste he's really good and then then then you know like I said Kane -- -- after that I would think it to drop off I don't know if there really are any. I think when it first started the funny part is of that is that in Dallas it's time covered the stars and the first year they shoot out. The best shoot out guy it seeing was UC open and I'm not even sure he's still nothing right now I would have to double check but. I out of a one it was with him he just had the right move Mike Ribeiro centered maybe she should be a pretty good run out and how he's thrilled with the capitals with anything right now -- -- it's just he eats at a health at the -- I don't know there's just a certain -- technique to it but yeah I a you know it's one of those things I'd love to see. More control on how you really do its success. In the last night we had a reviewed goal they had to go to Toronto and then -- counted the goal and I listen to some Red Wings fans wind that is. Conspiracy I thought they undefeated. But in listening to Steve Conroy today. He said if the net comes off the moorings. Because of the defensive player and the referee said that would have gone and now he can call it a goal that's why they did. Yeah and dad and at that picks up an outbreak has he completely off to like I believe but someone showed me a photo. They showed it in. That report came off the mornings and -- so yeah obviously -- from our angle. We should be -- they were showing an overhead -- sitting very clearly but. I mean I got all sorts of angles and Toronto so obviously it was a good goal I think a couple of the -- afterwards said yet it might have been good and obviously they got the extra points and they weren't. Too upset about it. So the conspiracy theories from the Detroit Red Wings fans probably unfounded -- I'm not conspiracy theorist in general and and -- a Cubs fan so he has yet they have limited him. So you can't cry and then San Jose roles and for the next two Fridays now. Which is unusual with the schedule. Yeah and then there -- -- Fedorov goal of the all of a sudden I think they lost in Nashville last night one another thing this team who was lights out and scoring goals -- will. And then all of a sudden I I think the black Hawks handed them. One of their first defeats. But I -- and I think it's six straight. -- winless for them but it sounds OK you know it's it's an interesting schedule and I think the Blackhawks just basically once again getting back to how they played on the road. -- he said you know we weren't even really looking at our opponent. It didn't matter that San Jose got off to a hot start it didn't matter that they were going to Vancouver and in the rabid fans in the city situation nor. Phoenix with with Iraqi -- it was just their game. All the time now they get back to that approach he'll be perfectly fine and you know I keep saying this like last night was just such a horrible calamity it really was a one point game still that they guide but. They didn't like I said -- too happy with it.
