BLOG: Hossa on ’Hawks overtime win

by Meg Tilley / Edmonton Oilers

After trailing Chicago most of the night, the Oilers ended up clawing their way back to make it a 3-3 finish, sending the game into overtime.

On his second breakaway of the night, Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa ended up clinching the 4-3 overtime win for his teammates.

“On the first breakaway I tried to make room for myself to go blocker side and (Nilsson) got a piece of it,” said Hossa.

“Now my goal was basically to take off a little bit, get a little cushion and I saw a little opening so I tried to clap it and this time I hit it.”

Hossa credits ’Hawks goaltender Corey Crawford for providing his line with renewed energy after robbing Oilers forward Taylor Hall of the chance to secure the win for his team.

“Obviously it was an unbelievable save and that’s why we won the game,” said Hossa.

“It kind of gave a boost to the bench when you’ve got next shift, it gives you an extra boost.”
