But that would require them to actually get a lead first
Agree 100% and would add, that the cliche usually comes with a "not 40 or 50 minutes".

In the Hawks case, that would be not 58 or 59 minutes. Over the last few years I have been to a number of games where the opponent does a text book, job of playing positionally sound D and keeping guys like Sharp and Kane on the outside, only to have it blow up in literally one shift.

I know thats hockey, but the Hawks manage to pull it off, better than anyone.
