The Hawks Go Scoreless by Momma Gouche

Tim Gleason scored for the Carolina Hurricanes at 3:41 of the first period in Friday night’s game against the Chicago Blackhawks. The Hawks turned over the puck a couple of times, but did a great job of killing off a double penalty to Patrick Kane.The play was pretty well all Carolina in the first period, with the Hawks only getting 7 shots on goal.The Hurricanes almost scored in the opening minutes of the second and Corey Crawford had to be quick. Fortunately for the Hawks the Canes took a penalty to Jeff Skinner, which eased some of the pressure. Chicago switched their lines around, trying to get the right mix to improve their offensive play. Kane was a real work horse, but couldn’t score on a couple of good chances. The Hawks put a lot of pressure on the net, but Cam Ward was not to be beaten and thwarted off all that was thrown at him.The Hawks were slow to organize on a power play and it ended up that Brent Seabrook got a penalty for hooking Eric Stahl on a break away. Fortunately Crawford was quick to block the penalty shot. The Hurricane’s Brandon Sutler scored at 5:39 in the third. Even though the Hawks had a couple of power plays, they still weren’t able to put much together.The Canes’ Jiri Tlusty put a wrist shot past Crawford at 15:07 and the game ended 3-0 for the Carolina Hurricanes.The Hawks had taken two late penalties, that didn’t give them any opportunity to put any effective offensive plays together. It was probably one of the worst games that I have seen my Hawks play. They are still not too far behind the leader, but they are gong to have to put some better strategy together in future games to stay in the hunt.
