Well at least no one got hurt.
In some adverse weather conditions the Hawks were able to find a way, the Penguins were not.
When it was done, the Hawks won 5-1.
Again, the concern is the Penguins bottom lines. The third and fourth lines got outclassed by their counterparts from the Windy city.
Every player on the third and fourth lines was at least a -1. Taylor Pyatt was a -3, and he only played 10 minutes.
Also, holy shit was the defensive bad. Brooks Orpik and Rob Scuderi both a -3.
Overall, a really rough night.
Our three stars
3. Patrick Sharp.
Sharp got the Hawks started with the first goal. He was a presence all night.
2. Brandon Saad.
Saad finished as a +4, and had an assist.
1. Jonathan Toews
Toews was too good. This move on Brooks Orpik… yikes. Toews had two goals and an assist.
