Hawks strategy

I know the hawks are skilled, but Boston has physically manhandled them.

Why not go after lucic? Somebody should try and decapitate him.

What's he going to do about it? Fight? So what?

Boston is just going after them with no risk really at all.

Hawks play best when they stick to a speed game. The reason Boston is going after them with no risk is because they have no fear of Chicago's PP.

Yeah, if we had a PP that reflected the offensive talent of our skaters, this would be a different series.

Their strategy? Take the puck to the left boards and shoot it on Rask. Rinse and repeat.

Strategy:

Negate Toews by putting him with 3rd/4th line players.

Split up Toews and Kane because they played well together.

Bench Stalhberg because the Hawks won too fast last series.

Jumble up the lines like you're picking names out of harry ****ing houdini's hat.

Put in a player who doesn't hit with the explanation that he hits.

It's baffling me how this is the Stanley Cup Finals and their are players on the Hawks who are scared to take a hit (roszival, leddy, oduya, bollig,), play weak on the puck (same 4 that I mentioned earlier) and that we have only had a handful of players play with heart every game (toews, keith, seabrook, shaw and crow). As for the PP, it looked good tonight when we got traffic in front, when they get in the zone guy with the puck needs to take it wide and bind some time for the other 2 forwards to get to the net then put it towards the net.

Ending with a positive, we had some good chances and it could have either way. Lets hope the entire team decides to play on wednesday.

Noticed a LOT of this ^. Anything between the circles was either blocked or missed the net.

Not sure how much of this is the Hawks not executing and how much Boston's checking is perfect (not a lot of mistakes that I can see).

Actually Toews had some good jump to begin this game. Then he looked to his left and then to his right and thought, oh oh, its all up to me. But it wont last. Ill have some linemates soon. As is usual, Q failed to recognize that Toews came to play and (incredibly) left that line intact for 2 full periods. Qs strategy was nothing short of panic, and he kept the team off balance most of the game with all the shuffling. And shuffling is one thing, and we have come to expect it, but here we are in the 3rd game of the SC finals, and hes playing lines I have never seen together, ever. This is xxxx (insert word).

The strategy is apparently to shoot from outside as much as possible.

We just don't have the guys to make a significant impact physically and we probably never will. That's just the way the team is built. That's why we need to at least keep Bickell. But the real problem is faceoffs. Fine, you're not going to pound the other team, going to have disadvantages in board battles against teams like this, but then you better be good on draws. A puck possession team that is bad on faceoffs just doesn't make any sense at all.

Danault needs to become the second line center as soon as possible. At least, he needs to be on the team next year if we can make it work and develop him up here. He is exceptional at draws and has the talent to play with this team. Beyond that, we need to bring in a 4th line guy that is awesome on draws too. And maybe that will be Danualt initially, but this problem needs to be addressed in more ways than one.

If anyone thought Q had some coaching prowess, last night's postgame presser should dispel that notion.

2 points from the presser, "opening up the game and trading quality scoring chances off the rush plays right into Boston's game"

What about Toews and Kane together? "well, that's always available to us, it's on an as needed basis."

Q stands for Quite the loon.

The one thing people aren't considering which no one knows anything about is possible injuries that Toews and others may have. As a Bruin'd fan I'm mystified how the Hawks aren't doing more on offense like they had been doing in period 1 of game 2. However if the key offensive players and on the ice with misc injuries that would keep them out of regular season games, it would explain a lot.

The playoffs is a game of attrition afterall.

As a B's fan I love how the series is going (other than the blown 2 goal lead in game one), but the series is far from over.

It is a testament to Crawford that it was only a 2-0 game.

Whenever anyone is there, they can't get the puck there. Whenever the puck is there, nobody is there. Maddening.

Also, we had 7 blocked shots. Seidenberg had 6 by himself.
