Hawks starters today: Hjalmarsson, Oduya, Toews, Bickell, Hossa, Crawford.
Hawks already look smoother with the puck in this game than they did all series against Minnesota. OK, slight exaggeration maybe, but still.
We've hit the first TV timeout, and the Hawks are outshooting the Kings 5-1. Just a little bit different from what we saw against the Wild.
I don't know what Bollig said just there, but it worked on Alec Martinez. Power play time!
SSSSSSAAAAAAAADDDDDDD!!!! Nice tip off the Leddy blast.
Hawks lead in shots after the first period, 7-5. Kings lead in boneheaded penalties, 1-0.
Blackhawks retake the ice for the second period. They were out-hit 20-17 in the first. Which is a lot of hits, really, by both teams.
TTTTTTTOOOOOOEEEEEWWWWWSSSS. No one is sure how it went in, but that's the Captain for ya. 2-0!
Looks like Voynov kicked it in.
Update: Goal disallowed. And Quenneville is PISSED.
Goalie interference was why that goal was disallowed. Coach Q still fuming. Yikes.
Ugh. Easy redirect for Tyler Toffoli there, and we've got a 1-1 game.
