If it wasn't for the Stezka eligibility fiasco before that first game, this series would likely be over with a sweep.
Agree'd!!! Here's to hoping SC can atleast hang with Chicago tonight and keep it interesting.

Chicago took it to SC again!!! Should have been a penalty on Johnstone for running over the SC goalie just after SC Wilson was called for high sticking. And Wilson's penalty should have been interference or holding, not high sticking.
SC is trying to attack the zone with 2 or 3 guys coming in together and lucky to be an arm's reach away from each other. Need to spread it out a little. Chicago is just splitting them gaps and has 1 or 2 players covering it. That frees them up 3 or 4 to defend the other 2. Chicago is being more physical and sc does not know how to react or play against.
SC's foreigners are still just standing around. Chicago has taken Tolvanen out of his game and no one has stepped up. They keep dump and chasing, sitting up around perimeter, not going to the net and getting after Stezka.
Chicago is cleaning the ice off with SC. SC has no chance playing like this. Congrats to Chicago.
At the risk of badgering you Case, did you see the play or are you going off of Curtis' call of 5 times saying Kiv was "drilled"? In real time I thought penalty shot but watching on Hockey TV I thought borderline call on Wilson, great to see the kid back and skating well, and an embellishment/flop call on Kiv. He was bumped and went down like a soccer player hit by a bazooka blast.... On Wilson if you're beat, a step behind and a player is bearing down on your goalie and you get your stick parallel to the ice good chance you'll get whistled whether you deserve it or not. His stick did kinda ride up Badini to his head but I didn't see contact.
