4-0, Avs take it to tired Blackhawks

By Brad Vandenberk

The Chicago Blackhawks returned home Friday night to play the Colorado Avalanche.  Chicago played the night before in Philadelphia where they erased a two goal lead only to loose with 30 seconds left in the third period.  This game was one the Hawks needed to win in order to maintain the 1st place status in the Western Conference and Central Division.

Andrew Shaw and Dylan Olsen remained with the big club as their games spoke volume against the Flyers less than 24 hours earlier.  Dan Carcillo served his 2nd game of his seven game suspension.   Marcus Kruger and Steve Montador also remained out of the Hawks’ lineup with injuries.

With new faces in the lineup, Coach Q, again, made some adjustments to his four lines.  Shaw saw time at center between Patrick Kane and Patrick Sharp.  Michael Frolik had a chance to show what he could do as he was put up with Jonathan Toews and Marian Hossa.  The line of Dave Bolland, Bryan Bickell and Viktor Stalberg were reunited after showing some good chemistry just a few games ago.  Finally Jamal Mayers, Andrew Brunette and Jimmy Hates rounded out the Hawks top 4 lines.

Corey Crawford got the nod for the Hawks and was busy early.  The pace to the game had a great start as both teams had some chances to score.   Half way through the first period the Hawks started to show their tired legs from playing the night before. Read more »
