The St. Louis Who’s? The Hawks finally tackled their demons and beat the Blues on Wednesday proving that they can beat anyone when they turn it up a notch. Not only did they turn it up, they made it very uncomfortable for a very good Blues teams in all situations. Corey Crawford made some very good saves to obtain his 10th career shutout.
Among all the celebrating, there was a significant loss suffered by the Hawks. Patrick Kane was accidentally landed on while in an awkward position and seemed to twist his knee, leaving during the second period.
It was announced Friday that Kane was shut down for the remainder of the regular season and placed on long term injury reserve. There is method to the Hawks madness. This was one of the only options the Hawks had get Teuvo Teravainen up to the big squad. He sported the Indian head this morning during the morning skate with teammates welcoming him as well as fans as the skate was streamed live.
Tonight’s game sees the Carolina Hurricanes enter the UC with a few key Hawks out of the line up.
