Saturday night at the UC showed how a resilient Hawks team can play and dominate a hockey game if they seem so fit to do so. The word elimination is still lingering around as the Hawks travelled back to Joe Louis Arena to continue this series and look to force a game 7 back at the UC on Wednesday night.
Jonathan Toews finally got his first 2013 playoff goal. He scored it in fashion, ripping a shot from the side of the net off Jimmy Howard. The captain’s roar was so loud even the hockey Gods heard it.
You can tell the Hawks were playing with urgency. During both power play goals the puck was moving around the ice with speed and crisp passing. This was something that was missing in earlier games.
