Crawford's composure in OT was ridiculous. You could see his concentration actually manifesting itself in his assured movements toward the puck. He even stood right up in the face of the one Canuck who ventured into his crease. Props.
I was happy to see the Canucks show up for that one. At least they showed they're still in it. Crawford and Bolland kept the Hawks around, I think.. Vancouver dominated the 3rd and OT.. but very impressed with Crawford. And I wish Schneider would stay in the net! Oh well. Hope I don't come off as a homer for believing Vancouver should've won that game. Chicago certainly deserves credit - this is a very resilient squad for sure. Game 7 will be fun.
I think your descriptions are dead on. Even I wrote the 'Hawks may have been lucky to come out with a win in Game 6. Tuesday is going to be a battle. I'm already nervous.
As always Jeff boxing provided me with numerous chuckles. But on a more insightful note, it would appear that what was one of the hawks greatest strengths last year is coming to fruition this year as well. With the front line not being nearly as dominant as we have seen in the past, the supporting cast has stepped up to the task of pushing this team forward. Myself and my 2nd round playoff ticket at the madhouse can only hope that this play can continue when (and can you believe it?!) the hawks take the ice for game freakin 7 in vancouver. GO HAWKS
