People are losing their minds because we lost by one goal, against the defending champs, while missing Sharp and Hossa.
Settle down folks.
Yeah screw Oduya for trying to block a shot. I mean what kind of dumbass does that? And Crawford for coming out to challenge the shooter then LA getting a lucky bounce right on Brown's stick. **** Crawford!
I don't care what the score was. We largely controlled the game up until the first 2 shoddy goals, then after that we were destroyed. We displayed little effort, awareness, grit, and simply got outworked. Even if we had got points that would be the only silver lining.
The Kings are a hardworking team. They're going to outwork most teams on most nights. The result would have been different with Hossa and Sharp, of that I'm positive.
Hawks didn't play well at all...but how lucky are the Kings to get a win?
1st goal the Kings dump it in, but it hits the linesmen and bounces directly to Kopitar and he walks in(due to Hammer thinking it was going to dump around) and scores.
3rd goal they score with 0.5 seconds left..King turns his skate at the exact same moment that it hits the puck so that it is directed into the net. Any goal off a skate it flukey enough but this one was just crazy.
4th goal Toffoli just wrists it on net with no intention of scoring...but Crawford is screened and doesn't see it and he doesn't even move...puck goes right into the net.
5th goal hits Oduya in the back then bounces right to the Kings player who shoots it in the net. Bounces any other way off Doodoo's back and it probably goes into OT.
Just a weird ****ing night. Hawks did not look great though and really only the Toews line looked good at times.
Who would have thought the Hawks would not be as good without two world class players in the lineup. At least Bowman is getting a look at the team vs likely playoff opponents. They got outworked against ANA and LA, but I don't think it's indicative of a playoff series when you consider the fact Hoss and Sharp aren't in lineup.
Ugly loss tonight. Puck goes off a linesman on the first goal, player gets tripped resulting in a 2 on 1 on the second goal, 3rd goal gets kicked in, 5th goal goes off a defensemans back and right in front for the game winner
