So you're Josh MceLhinney?
Well, if it makes you feel any better, Im among those who wish Keenan would play Curtis more.
Although they escaped tied, the Flames can't be happy with that first period. Their star player is -2 and they took the only penalties of the period.
That would be shuffling of deck chairs Im afraid.
Nope, he's -1. Thanks for pointing that out Mag!
Mike Cammalleri, on the other hand, is -2.
The Blackhawks played a pretty solid road period, although Im sure they'd want more out of their PP. Neither of their opportunities yielded a shot on goal.
One positive for the Flames: at least Khabibulin hasn't looked invulnerable so far...
His save on Leopold in the 3rd period of game 7 still gives me nightmares.
Interesting stat: Patrick Kane only has one goal in his last 16 games.
That seems like an arbitrary number. Why 5?
Lombardi was quiet in that period.
He actually had a fairly decent January, although nothing mind-blowing.
Here we go! Iginla v. Havlat at the start of the next period.
The hawks attempt another cross-crease pass, but nothing comes of it.
haha! If only the universe was that kind.
Kane dishes off to a hawk in the slot, but Kipper makes the pad save.
Lombardi is back out with Moss/Glencross.
Lombardi centers, but the puck glances off a defenders skate, killing the opportunity.
Cammalleri is tripped behind the net, and the Hawks are called for their first penalty of the game.
3:30 PENALTY - Duncan Keith, 2mins tripping.
Through the frist 40 seconds, the Flames fail to establish any pressure.
