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

You get the right the whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.
