I know. It wasn't really a serious post on my part.

I'd like to know exactly what folks want Crawford to do there. It's a bang bang play where the defense hangs him out to dry. The play happened so quickly that if he stands up and takes his eye of the puck it goes in anyway. Just because Zucker shot it high over his shoulder doesn't mean he would have shot it high over his shoulder if he was standing up. He could have gone straight through the five hole.

Hawks got out hit out shot and mostly out worked and yet still almost one the game. It sucks, but the other guys get paid to win games too.
