The Hawks beat the Islanders in a shootout on Friday night, 5-4. Yes, the 2 points are welcome and needed. However, ROW (regulation, overtime wins) took another hit. The game itself skated a fine line between exciting and frustrating. New York, with the WORST goals for average in the game at 1.95 scored twice in the first period. Again, it was not all Crawford’s fault. Cro did come up with some pretty big saves. The defense, however still needs to get tougher around the net.There have been too many uncontested, tap-in goals so far this season.
As for the lines, they went like this; 1) Stalberg-Toews-Kane. 2) Sharp-Kruger-Hossa. 3) Frolik-Bolland- Ben Smith (my man). 4) Carcillo-Mayers-Brunette. Defense wise, we seem to be settling in with Keith & Seabrook, and, Hlalmarsson & Leddy, first and second. In the revolving 3rd match up, last night it was Montador & O’Donnel.
In the net for New York was the Chicago are kid, Al Montoya (4-3-1). I had, by the way, another...
