Hawks not done yet
Make that 4-3. Life for the Hawks.
 
Jonathan Toews won the in-zone faceoff and after a battle in front, Duncan Keith swooped in and with his backhand roofed a shot over Howard to send the United Center crowd into hysterics once again with 8:38 to play. Patrick Sharp was in front and the puck got there off a shot by Marian Hossa. Sharp got credit for the primary assist, so clearly he must have touched the puck before Keith.
 
The Blackhawks obviously can't continue to trade chances and goals with the Red Wings anymore. They need to outscore the Wings in the final 8 minutes in order to clinch a playoff berth.
 
A trip to overtime would be good enough for them.
Quote of the Day

For our team, as a group, we've never been this far before, and so it's just more lessons learned, and sometimes you have to go to the school of hard knocks to find out what works and what doesn't. We've got a young group. They've played some unreal hockey here to get us this far, and we showed if we're not going to play the proper way, a really, really good hockey team is going to beat you, and that's what they did. It's a lesson learned.
