The View from Chicago

Chicago Tribune

Observations from the Blackhawks’ 3-0 win over the Kings

“…the Hawks looked as sharp as they have all season. The penalty kill had its first error-free night and Jonathan Toews got on the board for the first time.”

Corey Crawford, Marian Hossa lead Blackhawks to shutout of Kings

“Just as critical as the penalty kill, the Hawks outshot a team in the first period for just the second time all season, taking a 1-0 lead on Toews’ power-play goal at 6:54 of the first.”

Corey Crawford, Blackhawks Blank Kings

“There were glimpses in their game against New Jersey on Friday that they were starting to find their way, and they built off that tonight against the Kings. Sure, it’s one game, a small sample size. But for 60 minutes on Sunday the Blackhawks looked like the Blackhawks.”

All the School Kids so Sick of Books: Blackhawks 3, Kings 0

“Tonight, the Kings were either too slow or too busy taking penalties to be bothered. It’s one thing to be a slower team and still disciplined. It’s another to be slow AND take bad penalties. That’s who the Kings were tonight and that’s why the Hawks got their two easiest points of the season.”
