The Hawks rode their #1 Man Captain Serious in Center Jonathan Toews and once again he shows why he is the best leader in Ice Games and one of the best in all of professional sports. Toews "Lights the Lamp" x 2 for the Hawks fist two scores and they never looked back. It was 2-0 after one frame Hawks lead as Ducks blue-paint tenant Frederik Andersen's Woes continues from games 5 and 6.
In the 2nd frame it was Brandon Saad and Marian Hossa scoring and the Indian Head led 4-0 putting away the Ducks. That Hossa score was huge as the Ducks Ryan Kesler beat Corey Crawford in the high-short corner of the net making it 4-1 right before the end of the 2nd frame.
The Hawks came out in the 3rd with a two-man advantage first then a one-man advantage and didn't capitalize which gave the Ducks a little momentum. Corey Perry score a little over midway through the 3rd as Team Webbed Feet had life making it 4-2. That lead lasted almost two minutes as Brent Seabrook score on the Hawks power play making it 5-2 as the Ducks Matt Beleskey score with just over a minute remaining as the Hawks will play for the Cup for the 3rd time since 2010.
"Craw-Dad" was sensational in net early as he stopped 35 of 38 SOG. Andersen just struggled and the Hawks knew he as struggling and took full advantage of it. Now Chicago has no time to rest as its off to Tampa on Tuesday Afternoon for a Wednesday Night Game 1...Hawks vs Bolts and this one should be a blast!
Congrats to my Boys for getting one step closer to Grant Park and that Parade Route as we are just 4 more wins away from Cup #3....
