They also weren't going through the motions. They were taking it to Anaheim outside of that bad minute.

But, people can continue to believe the Hawks went into a "shell" if they like.
Agree 100% The Hawks started slow and got on their heels after that early goal against, but they carried the play most of the 2nd and 3rd periods. Kane made a bad play on their first goal by bringing the puck back into the zone and then handcuffed Seabrook with the pass and boom they pounce and it's 0-1. Oduya gave Getzlaf too much room and Ryan pops in the rebound. A bad clear and line change and Selanne gets the deflection off Oduya's skate and it's 2-3. That's the way it goes.

Based on this game, I like the Hawks chances to beat the Ducks in a 7 game series, especially with both teams at full strength.
