Good piece throughout, particularly well articulated is the paragraph on chanting with Sven and Oli.
I turned the sound down for this game just to deaden that stupidity a bit--was still not enough to drown out Roenick, but we can't have it all. Cory answered well in post--"they can chant whatever they want."
Crawford lets in a head scratcher occasionaly, but he then owns the brain fart and is nails after. How can everyone not like this fuckin beauty--he gets it done and in this series, saved the team's ass.
I questioned the Crawford deal at the beginning of the season. I regret that now, and ever since game 4 in the Blues' series. He is a totally different player in the playoffs, there is enough evidence to submit that as scientific fact now. Last night was as miraculous of a game a goaltender can play. Nod to Lundquist as well.
For sure, The Wild brought a special game. The Hawks actually turned on the gas early in this one, and The Wild matched it, plus some, making for, as you mentioned, a robbery by Crawford. The chants could not be loud enough for his glory last night.
If Q had a working brain, and watched the last 2 games we did, Regin would be in for the long haul, and Zus should be questionable at best. The shots he blocks on the PK are not worth the sandbags he puts on our top guys who as mentioned, have been the difference. If we truly honor great play in this city, Regin should be in, and Smith should be getting more minutes. Zus, is even too slow for the 4th line. He has to go, especially if we face the Ducks next. Shaw coming back would make that a must, and Regin is pretty good on the kill as well.
I thought Toews was going to be the guy last night, and he tried on a few occasions. Kane did have that glint in his step though, and he brought the, what was it again, oh yeah, "SHOWTIME."
@The Other One heh, yes. We get along just fine!
