After a month of consistently sloppy and generally mediocre play around the NHL (which was to be expected, of course), this game was expected to be the first real showcase of high-level hockey since the season started, and it lived up to expectations. Except for the officiating, of course. Hey, the officials need time to round into top form too. But seriously, this was a great display of puck possession hockey. The Sharks and Blackhawks have long been two of the preeminent puck possession teams in the league, and they put on a show tonight. Other than the constant turnovers, at least. In order to play that style effectively, you need to possess one hell of a lot of talent. It's rare that you see two teams that play so similar a style that are so evenly matched.
