Stanley Cup Playoffs 2013 Update: Chicago Blackhawks Punish Jonathan Quick
If the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs have taught NHL fans anything, it’s to never count a particular team out. All four of the teams remaining have shown resiliency in this postseason alone, but the Los Angeles Kings will have to change something in order to get by the stout Chicago Blackhawks. Jonathan Quick was supposed to give the reigning Stanley Cup champions the upper hand in this match up, but it’s the Hawks goalie, Corey Crawford, who has stolen the show early on.
The Blackhawks were so potent on Sunday that Los Angeles was forced to yank their top goalie after Quick allowed four goals. The key goal scorers from Chicago’s offensive attack are on fire as of late which is the absolute last thing that the Kings want to hear.
The series will now shift to Los Angeles where the Kings have yet to lose a game this postseason — hopefully that streak continues because overcoming an 0-3 deficit against this Chicago team is borderline impossible.
Meanwhile, the Boston Bruins thoroughly outplayed the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Sidney Crosby is incredible with the stick, but it was obvious on Saturday that his head was not in the game.
Crosby was taking cheap shots at the Bruins goalie of all people!
Instead of focusing on how to chip him, Crosby should focus on how to score goals against Tuukka Rask. That goes for anyone on the Penguins because they have yet to put the biscuit in the basket versus the tough Bruins goaltender. The doom clouds are alive and well in Pittsburgh because unlike the Kings, the Penguins are in danger of dropping two straight home games rather than road contests.
