The game is just called differently between the dots/in front of the net. What would be an obvious cross check call isn't called when it happens there for whatever reason.
   1002. SteveF Posted: June 17, 2013 at 10:57 PM (#4471572)
To be fair, Rask hasn't had many tough saves other than the first period of game 2, and a lot of those are because he was spilling rebounds. The Boston defensive play, particularly by their forwards, has been the real MVP of the series and probably the playoffs. Seems like Boston has had 3 good scoring chances for every 1 Chicago chance all series.


I completely agree with this. I actually think Crawford has been the better goaltender given the kinds of scoring chances he's had to face.
   1003. Snowboy Posted: June 17, 2013 at 10:59 PM (#4471576)
Chara got a double-minor at the end of the game, if that's the cross-check you are referring to?
He pretended to not know, and just sit on the bench, because he wanted to be part of the win celebration. But he was sent down the tunnel by a linesman before they dropped the puck again.
   1004. SteveF Posted: June 17, 2013 at 11:45 PM (#4471620)
From what I hear, Hossa has been playing hurt/injured and they knew all day he might not be able to go tonight. It's unclear why they didn't have Smith warm up, but it sounds like they didn't want to let on Hossa was that badly hurt until they absolutely had to (by scratching him).

I don't. I think it's 2-1 or maybe even 3-0 if the goalies change sides. Both of the first games end in regulation. This one I'm not sure about, since the hawks missed the net completely on their best scoring chances.

Crawford has been unbelievable this season, especially given how he played last year. But he's not an elite goaltender. He should be good enough to win a cup with, in general.

As for Hossa, he's a huge loss, but no single skater is so important that the remaining games become sweeps. Keith is more vital to the team and they won without him in the lineup.

And lastly, I hate hate hate hate haaaaaaaaate revisionist crap like this, from the puck daddy recap:
In the battle of patience versus impatience, patience lost in Game 3. The Blackhawks were guilty of holding onto the puck a second too long looking for better opportunities, while the Bruins -- with the Paille goal as an example -- didn't hesitate to fire away on Crawford.

That is not true at all. The hawks were firing at net every time they had an open lane. They passed up exactly one shot the entire game, which was Keith's dish to Toews on the PP. The PP wasn't ineffective because they were passing, it was ineffective because they couldn't even ####### get set up in the zone. If anything, I thought they shot too often on low-percentage plays when there was a trailer they could have hit. My biggest criticism of Q is that he spends so much time yelling at everyone to make the simple, direct play so they don't get too fancy that they never get fancy enough.
   1006. Joe Bivens, Minor Genius Posted: June 18, 2013 at 06:24 AM (#4471675)
Rask is always in position. He doesn't look flashy. I think that's why people will say he's not as good as whoever. Both goalies are playing well.

Thirded. Last night, the Hawks missed the net on their best chances. Most of Rask's saves were pretty straight forward, but he did a better job with rebounds last night than game 2. But the overall D has done a great on limiting the quality of the Hawks' shots.

As for Hossa, he's a huge loss, but no single skater is so important that the remaining games become sweeps. Keith is more vital to the team and they won without him in the lineup.

Also agree here. I think the Hawks had more time to plan for Keith's absence though, and the lines last night were just a total mess. I think they'll look better in game 4, regardless of whether that leads to a win or not.

Both goalies have been playing very well this series but I don't think Rask has been playing significantly better than Crawford. Crawford didn't have much of a chance on either goal last night & I doubt Rask would've stopped them either. Game 2's OT goal was a well-placed shot from Paille; I know some are saying Crawford should've stopped it but that's debatable. Boston's skaters are making Rask look great- blocking shots, getting to rebounds, clearing the puck.

Crawford has been unbelievable this season, especially given how he played last year. But he's not an elite goaltender. He should be good enough to win a cup with, in general.


It seems like you're discounting Crawford a bit here. He's not Lundqvist, Rinne, or Quick (though he had a better year than Quick & outplayed him in the WCF). Everyone else is probably at the same level, or below, that of Crawford.
   1009. Shredder Posted: June 18, 2013 at 11:47 AM (#4471881)
(though he had a better year than Quick & outplayed him in the WCF
Just about everyone had a better year than Quick, including Jonathan Bernier. But that's most likely due to the fact that Quick had back surgery in the off-season.
   1010. Moses Taylor World Re-Tour 2.0: Warszawa Posted: June 18, 2013 at 05:21 PM (#4472273)
it's definitely coaching, but i don't think the hawks have anyone who's an elite offensive player, either.

Going back to this, and assuming it's not a blatant troll, what qualifies someone as an elite offensive player? And how many elite offensive players are there? PPG? Hawks had 2 in the top 20 this year (Kane/Toews), 3 last year (Toews/Hossa/Sharp), 3 the year before that (Kane/Sharp/Toews), but only Kane in the previous Cup winning year. Kane had an off year last year, but I'd have a hard time not calling him an elite offensive player (5th in pts and 4th in PPG). Toews might be, even though that hasn't been the case in the playoffs, but I guess it depends on where you cut off elite and the level below. Sharp and Hossa may have been at times, but might not be now.
   1011. SteveF Posted: June 18, 2013 at 05:46 PM (#4472287)
Chicago has guys that can put the puck in the net and the kind of offensive talent that would benefit from more time/space afforded on a PP (mostly Kane).

In terms of pure shooters, you'd have to say Chicago has more than the average team, and their power play has been below average/average. They also have the kind of skill sets that should enable them to get into the zone with possession. Their defense moves the puck well so you'd expect them to be able to maneuver around the outside in addition to swapping spots with a forward to create more movement without compromising their ability to pass pucks from the half wall.

Some of this may be the Bruins. They did manage to shut down Pittsburgh's PP (though it looked more dangerous than Chicago's). But given the length of time this has been a problem and the above average offensive talent Chicago has... Most of the problem has got to be coaching.

They might not ever be an elite PP unit because of no Stamkos, Crosby, Malkin, or Ovechkin, but they can be much better than they have been without an elite shooter/finisher.
   1012. Moses Taylor World Re-Tour 2.0: Warszawa Posted: June 19, 2013 at 03:09 PM (#4473275)
Sounds like someone/something got through to Q on the lines, since they make a ton of sense (and are what the lines were to end the Kings series):

Toews/Kane/Bickell
Handzus/Sharp/Hossa (assuming he plays, although he wasn't at the morning skate)
Shaw/Saad/Stalberg
Bolland/Kruger/Frolik

Some of this may be the Bruins.

Definitely. Of course, it's been just as bad regardless of the opponent.
   1013. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 19, 2013 at 03:46 PM (#4473328)
Big game tonight. The Blackhawks can clearly win if they're down 3-1, but they'll have no more room for error. Maybe a 20% chance of winning. At 2-2, I think they're 55-60% favorites to win.
   1014. odds are meatwad is drunk Posted: June 19, 2013 at 06:48 PM (#4473472)
This is a must win tonight, dont want to go down 3-1 and have to get a road win sometime. Get this one its tied and they have home ice advantage again.
   1015. zack Posted: June 19, 2013 at 08:29 PM (#4473519)
Good start for the hawks. Kinda soft penalty call, but I would love if interference were called that tightly all the time.
   1016. zack Posted: June 19, 2013 at 08:30 PM (#4473521)
B-SAAAD IS RAAAAD
   1017. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 19, 2013 at 08:31 PM (#4473525)
####. Rask should have stopped that.
   1018. zack Posted: June 19, 2013 at 08:32 PM (#4473526)
It was off two posts! I don't think that was on Rask. Nevermind that it was taken from the easiest place to score in hockey.
   1019. zack Posted: June 19, 2013 at 08:41 PM (#4473531)
That was a beautiful friggin' breakout. Not sure I've ever said that before.

Holy ####, Pierre just complimented Chicago!
   1020. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 19, 2013 at 08:42 PM (#4473533)
It was more where the shot was coming from than the placement. He didn't shift quickly enough to get into good position. But you're right, it was a really good look on goal. I might have been spoiled over the last couple weeks.

Chicago is looking really good early on.
   1021. zack Posted: June 19, 2013 at 08:46 PM (#4473537)
Two different Bruins punching guys in the face who aren't fighting. Lets everyone call the guys who aren't fighting pussies just like when it was the Canucks.

No clue how these aren't off-setting penalties, if not a Blackhawks PP.
   1022. zack Posted: June 19, 2013 at 08:51 PM (#4473543)
Garbage call, garbage goal and here we go again.
   1023. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 19, 2013 at 08:52 PM (#4473545)
WOO! Really important to even things up quick.

No clue how these aren't off-setting penalties, if not a Blackhawks PP.


Uh, what? Shaw hit Peverly after getting up from the hit by Kelly. Keith went to the box for hooking/grabbing on the way into the Blackhawks zone. You can argue that it should have been merely offsetting penalties, but no way that should have been a Hawks powerplay.
   1024. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 19, 2013 at 08:53 PM (#4473550)
Garbage call, garbage goal and here we go again.


Oh come off it. Blame the Hawks for a horrible turnover at the end of that power play.
   1025. zack Posted: June 19, 2013 at 08:54 PM (#4473551)
Yeah you're right, I thought the original call was a late hit on Kelly, I read the box score wrong. But Mcquaid should have gone I think.
   1026. zack Posted: June 19, 2013 at 08:55 PM (#4473552)
Garbage as in a gift to give up, not the skill of the shot. Saad lost his balance right before get the puck back and the Crawford showed why I don't think he's an elite goalie.
   1027. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 19, 2013 at 08:56 PM (#4473553)
Ah, gotcha. And yeah, as I said I think you could make a good argument it should have been offsetting penalties.
   1028. zack Posted: June 19, 2013 at 08:58 PM (#4473554)
Faceoffs are going the way they did in game 3 so far, 11-4.
   1029. zack Posted: June 19, 2013 at 09:00 PM (#4473557)
Fire up the calliope, everybody, it's time for the clown shoes show.

Nevermind. Good call by Keith to decline the penalty.
   1030. Bull Pain Posted: June 19, 2013 at 09:00 PM (#4473559)
Duncan Keith has been absolutely awful
   1031. odds are meatwad is drunk Posted: June 19, 2013 at 09:01 PM (#4473560)
I think the bad ice helps the bruins more than hurts them. And thats the emd of the pp maybe the hawks can score since its 4x4
   1032. SteveF Posted: June 19, 2013 at 09:06 PM (#4473565)
Well, it started well for the Hawks. What a great finish by Handzus on a wonderful pass.

I'm not sure how much of the blame to give to Crawford on the goal. Obviously it was off a turnover on a PP, so that takes some of the edge off it. Peverley was close and had options to pass down low. Probably not a position you want your goaltender in, but also probably the kind of save you need to win the Cup.

The ice looked better, but it still isn't great. That's probably the best you can expect the ice to be this late in the year without the built in dehumidifiers.
   1033. The Kentucky Gentleman, Mark Edward Posted: June 19, 2013 at 09:09 PM (#4473567)

Not the best Crawford moment there, but there were two Hawks trying to block the shot. One of them has to get a piece of the puck or don't bother trying to block it.
   1034. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 19, 2013 at 09:09 PM (#4473568)
Don Cherry has his best suit of the Stanley Cup so far, a violet and black floral number. B or B+.
   1035. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 19, 2013 at 09:22 PM (#4473572)
Amazing save there by Crawford off the rebound.
   1036. SteveF Posted: June 19, 2013 at 09:33 PM (#4473581)
Effort level just seems higher this game for the Hawks. They started to lose it in the first but have really done well in the second.
   1037. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 19, 2013 at 09:34 PM (#4473582)
Nothing Rask could do about that.
   1038. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 19, 2013 at 09:38 PM (#4473586)
Well, this is rapidly getting out of hand.
   1039. The Kentucky Gentleman, Mark Edward Posted: June 19, 2013 at 09:38 PM (#4473589)
Kaner!
   1040. SteveF Posted: June 19, 2013 at 09:39 PM (#4473590)
An absolute clinic right now. They are playing great.
   1041. Bull Pain Posted: June 19, 2013 at 09:40 PM (#4473592)
Toews, Kane and Bickell is working? I'm shocked. Shocked I tell ya. What in the HE double hockey sticks was Quenneville thinking in the first 3 games?
   1042. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 19, 2013 at 09:42 PM (#4473594)
Argh. My least favorite penalty to take.
   1043. zack Posted: June 19, 2013 at 09:47 PM (#4473600)
Toews, Kane and Bickell is working? I'm shocked. Shocked I tell ya. What in the HE double hockey sticks was Quenneville thinking in the first 3 games?

Q's biggest weakness is trying to have influence and getting in his own way.
   1044. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 19, 2013 at 09:51 PM (#4473606)
Well, that goal came against the run of play, as the soccerheads would say.
   1045. Langer Monk Posted: June 19, 2013 at 09:52 PM (#4473607)
Hawks D-men refuse to put a body on any Bruin in front of Crawford. They'd better figure that out soon if they are interested in winning this.
   1046. Bull Pain Posted: June 19, 2013 at 09:52 PM (#4473608)
This just turned into Italy-Japan! If only this was on Univision.
   1047. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 19, 2013 at 09:53 PM (#4473609)
Man, and here I was all happy that it was back to a one goal game. Damnit.
   1048. odds are meatwad is drunk Posted: June 19, 2013 at 09:53 PM (#4473610)
I did not see a hook there
   1049. zack Posted: June 19, 2013 at 09:56 PM (#4473614)
God dammit, I was on the phone and accidentally hit the remote control and I just thought it was still a commercial. I missed 3 goals!

Somehow the Blackhawks are dominating at the dot, everyone but Handzus is above 50%.

If Chicago wins this game, I'd like the media to spend the next two days talking about how the Blackhawks are the only team ever to be good at hockey and how the Bruins are worthless cowards that should all just commit suicide rather than embarass themselves with another game. (This is not against Bruins fan, just the way the media can't get their dick out of their mouths).
   1050. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 19, 2013 at 09:58 PM (#4473615)
This game is wild. Absolutely nothing Crawford could do about that, one of the weirdest goals I've ever seen.
   1051. zack Posted: June 19, 2013 at 09:58 PM (#4473616)
Nice bounce. And hands.
   1052. Bull Pain Posted: June 19, 2013 at 09:59 PM (#4473618)
Seabrook with his head up his ass again.
   1053. Bull Pain Posted: June 19, 2013 at 10:01 PM (#4473620)
There is a huge disparity in special teams now. The Blackhawks need to stop taking soft penalties.
   1054. odds are meatwad is drunk Posted: June 19, 2013 at 10:02 PM (#4473625)
Outstanding 2nd period
   1055. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 19, 2013 at 10:03 PM (#4473626)
Hawks are really lucky that this isn't a tie game given that last minute of action.
   1056. zack Posted: June 19, 2013 at 10:03 PM (#4473627)
They're only -1 on the PK!

Hawks are really lucky that this isn't a tie game given that last minute of action.

Nuh uh, Bruins are lucky it's this close! And my Dad can beat up your Dad!
   1057. SteveF Posted: June 19, 2013 at 10:05 PM (#4473629)
The game really opened up. I'd imagine Chicago wants to play it a little tighter come the 3rd, given they have the lead. Who saw that 2nd period coming?
   1058. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 19, 2013 at 10:06 PM (#4473632)
Nuh uh, Bruins are lucky it's this close!


That is true as well.

And my Dad can beat up your Dad!


Probably!
   1059. Bull Pain Posted: June 19, 2013 at 10:11 PM (#4473636)
Blackhawks have allowed as many PPG in the last four periods as they did in the first three series combined!
   1060. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 19, 2013 at 10:12 PM (#4473639)
Who saw that 2nd period coming?


I thought this game was over after it went to 3-1. I didn't expect to see the flurry of goals in the last 6 minutes.
   1061. SteveF Posted: June 19, 2013 at 10:15 PM (#4473643)
Now I see why the horn sounded on that Kelly chance. Hard to believe he didn't bury that.
   1062. Bull Pain Posted: June 19, 2013 at 10:16 PM (#4473646)
So on the replay it sure looks like Marchand slashed Crawford's stick out of his hands on the 3rd Boston goal.

Edit: and his original deflection to the glass was above the shoulder. The next touch was by Bergeron.
   1063. SteveF Posted: June 19, 2013 at 10:21 PM (#4473651)
Your mileage may vary, but I find I can enjoy NHL games more if I just treat officiating as acts of god and not think too much about them. You'll drive yourself crazy, man. CRAZY!
   1064. Snowboy Posted: June 19, 2013 at 10:23 PM (#4473657)
It was Seabrook's stick on Crawford.
He was trying to lift Marchand's stick and came into contact with Crawford's stick, knocking it out of his hand.
Strange goal, off the glass, off the top of the net, flat bounce onto the ice. (Just like they drew it up, right?)
   1065. SteveF Posted: June 19, 2013 at 10:24 PM (#4473659)
Now we see if they crumble. Mental test right here for the Hawks. It's only tied and there's plenty of time.
   1066. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 19, 2013 at 10:24 PM (#4473660)
TIE GAME! What a ####### crazy game.
   1067. President of the David Eckstein Fan Club Posted: June 19, 2013 at 10:25 PM (#4473662)
Outstanding shift by Jagr there
   1068. Bull Pain Posted: June 19, 2013 at 10:25 PM (#4473663)
Crawford needed to save that, but Oduya just soft as hell on the boards.
   1069. Shredder Posted: June 19, 2013 at 10:26 PM (#4473664)
How many goals in this series have gone UNDER Crawford's glove. Maybe he's trying to be too quick, or cheating a bit on what he thinks are going to be top corner shots.
   1070. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 19, 2013 at 10:27 PM (#4473665)
This is some wide open hockey right now.
   1071. SteveF Posted: June 19, 2013 at 10:28 PM (#4473667)
Good response by the Hawks. Game is much more competitive last few shifts.
   1072. The Kentucky Gentleman, Mark Edward Posted: June 19, 2013 at 10:28 PM (#4473668)
Oduya looks hopeless.
   1073. Snowboy Posted: June 19, 2013 at 10:29 PM (#4473670)
BOS was going top-glove in the first three games, and that's two or three low-glove in the net today.
And a clean look, no one in front for Bergeron's shot. Tied.
   1074. odds are meatwad is drunk Posted: June 19, 2013 at 10:32 PM (#4473673)
Whats witheddy why only 3 shifts is he hurt? Seems to be one of the better defenders this series
   1075. Bull Pain Posted: June 19, 2013 at 10:34 PM (#4473674)
Not the night for Crawford to go all Leighton on us.

Boston is so much better than anything the Hawks saw in the West playoffs. It's amazing they needed a miracle to knock off the Leafs.
   1076. SteveF Posted: June 19, 2013 at 10:35 PM (#4473675)
Hawks have had the better of play over the last 5 minutes.

GOD DAMMIT GO IN THE NET. These are friggin' point blank chances.

I've been saying that in the other direction.

Argh. Damnit Jagr.
   1079. zack Posted: June 19, 2013 at 10:40 PM (#4473684)
Uh oh. Now Keith is going to bring a knife to his next shift against Jagr.
   1080. odds are meatwad is drunk Posted: June 19, 2013 at 10:42 PM (#4473687)
Great steal by kane there
   1081. SteveF Posted: June 19, 2013 at 10:42 PM (#4473688)
Astoundingly bad play by Lucic.
   1082. Bull Pain Posted: June 19, 2013 at 10:44 PM (#4473690)
4 on 3 is a new one for the Hawks PP. How can they mess up this one?

Edit: They did it!

Ugly ugly ugly power play somehow got it done.

They can't.

I just fainted...

Was that really a PP goal by the Hawks?

This game will never end.

#### off Crawford.

That easily beat him. Put in Emery.

Glove side. Looked like under the glove again. He's just guessing.
   1091. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 19, 2013 at 10:47 PM (#4473701)
WOW. That was a fast answer.

Dammit camt they hold a lead
   1094. Langer Monk Posted: June 19, 2013 at 10:48 PM (#4473704)
Pretty sure that nicked Oduya and rose a bit.
   1095. zack Posted: June 19, 2013 at 10:51 PM (#4473706)
The Bruins defensive-mistake-conversion-rate has to be like 75% for this series. It's ridiculous.
   1096. Langer Monk Posted: June 19, 2013 at 10:53 PM (#4473707)
Pretty sure that nicked Oduya and rose a bit.


Nope, nevermind.
   1097. zack Posted: June 19, 2013 at 10:53 PM (#4473708)
I don't know why Oduya was laying out like that, if there's one part of the net that is covered it's the bottom.

####### COVER THE WEAK SIDE D-MAN GOD DAMMIT! THEY'VE SCORED LIKE 8 TIMES OFF THAT PLAY THIS SERIES!

Lucic has had a terrible game.

And BOS is catching CHI in the "fundamental error" category in this series. (Long way to go, but they are gaining in this game.)

Fatigue is really a factor now.
EDIT: Wild end to end third period. :25 until OT
