Had Richards been healthy, I bet he would have been centering Brown and Williams and Fraser may have been sitting in place of Stoll on the 4th line. And when Richards does get back, that is what Sutter may have to look at. Keep Kopitar on the 3rd line and leave the Carter line alone.
I loved the line combos DS put out it seemed like everyone was able to have an impact. Stoll was great on the forecheck and the draws William was great quarterbacking his line in the offensive zone Brown was a force physically as was Greene Slava was Slava and quick was quick. Kopitar and his line were able to get some offensive zone time an wear down the hawks kopitar was also good on the draw. Hes hurt obviously but has shown in the right situation can be effective even skating on one leg.. Carter wants to be THE guy and he is always dangerous out there. Carter and Williams are carrying this team offensively the way brown and kopi did last year. And toffoli is just some kind of special the kid just flat out produces. If Richards comes back put him in between 23 & 14 and have stoll center fourth line. Tonight's win has me feeling really good about our team. Go kings!!
Keith will get a fine, and that's it. They won't give him a game because he's on Chicago, and it's the WCF.
Please stop the us against the NHL. I hate the whiners on other teams forums playing this card. If he gets a fine, a game, or nothing, it's not because he is a Blackhawk. Just be thankful Carter is not hurt and move on.
Still puzzled on why they stopped it. It's better to let players blow off steam then let them try to get back at each other later... those lead to injuries.
Isn't there a rule about fighting before a puck drop? That's all I was thinking it could be...
I'm eating crow on Muzzin. Great game by him. Where the hell was that poise before
Williams is all that is man. And he's punking his evil twin Sharp. That Sharp quote and Keith meltdown is all you need to know about how frustrated they were tonight. If we can have a similar performance in game 4 (but bury our damn chances! ugh), we'll be sitting pretty. Great game!!!
