See No Evil: Blackhawks vs. Boston Bruins Review

Blackhawks fall to the Boston Bruins 3-2 in a shootout.

I had a hunch that this would happen.

So, guess who didn’t get to catch the game at all? Hint: It’s the person writing the review!

See, I was in Kalamazoo (feel free to ask Leiram why I was there) because, as I had told a few people before leaving on this trip, “I have a bad feeling about this Bruins game.”

I hate to be proven right on this sort of thing, and yet.

So, if you want to read actual reviews about this game from people who watched, here you go:

Captain Force Of Nature Watch: His stat sheet is pretty empty tonight, sadly enough. He did win 11 out of 18 (61%) of his faceoffs, though. He also had a nice save on goal. But it looks like it might be another slow start for Jonathan Toews.

Duncan Keith Plus/Minus Watch: -2. Yeah, way to negate your performance on Thursday.

Post-Game Quotes from nhl.com:

Patrick Kane: “I think for whatever the reason, we didn’t really play the way we wanted to in the third. It’s tough to give up a goal, especially when you’re up 2-1, but it kind of seemed like we were playing back a little bit and not really pushing the pace. When you get that one-goal lead, I know you don’t want to cheat and push too much, but at the same time it would have been nice to make it 3-1. It seemed like we were throwing (the puck) away a lot. It was kind of a sloppy game on our part.”

Joel Quenneville, on Crawford: “He was excellent. He was big. (There was) a lot of traffic, a lot of tough shots through traffic, but he kept us in there. It was an amazing pace. That first period was the best period we’ve been involved in all year. Both teams were dangerous, both goalies had to be sharp in the first period and had to be sharp all game.”
