I believe the Blackhawks can win, they just need to get some scoring from all their lines like they did during the regular season. Hoping this one doesn't end in a sweep of the Blackhawks like the Bruins did to the Pens.
Scoring from Shaw, Bolland, Saad, Oduya. Other lines contributing - check
Hawks up 1-0. No sweep - check
Holy crap that was exciting to watch! It's hard not to be biased in the review, but I thought the Hawks did a better job in regulation (almost 2-1 SOG) and the Bruins dominated the OT's. That was definitely one that could have gone either way, and appeared as though it was going to go Boston's way twice on those two post shots in OT. I was surprised that the Hawks came out hitting; that is definitely not their game. I think it showed too as they went down early and had to fight back just to tie it up.
I'm really looking forward to the rest of this series (although I'm still nervous about the Hawks chances). I think that the teams were evenly matched in most of the stats yesterday, so this series is probably going to come down to the lucky deflections off posts, skates and legs...
Any of you Boston fans know what happened to Horton? From the replays it looked like he hurt himself pushing one of the Hawks and not due to a hit. Pierre was also speculating that he was playing with an upper body injury.
