SCFG2: Second Period Recap
After two we are all tied up in Chicago and Chris Kelly scored his first of the postseason for Boston to tie things up at one.
The Hawks have been dominating the game outshooting Boston 23 to 12 but that doesn't matter as Chicago has blown several chances. Coach Q's reconfigured powerplay units haven't been anymore affective this game as in Game 1. Some could argue they are actually worse.
The Hawks blew two power play chances in the second and nearly allowed a short-handed goal and probably would have if not for Brent Seabrook getting away with a slash.
Then almost immediately after blowing their third power play chance, Johnny Oduya committed a tripping penalty that will carry over into the third. Boston will have 1:14 remaining when play resumes.
Boston has out hit Chicago 39 to 13 and Rask has stopped 22 of 23 shots he has faced. The Hawks were outshot 8 to 4 in the second after coming out firing in the first.
Coach Q needs to get his team to come out firing in the third like they did in the first otherwise the Hawks might be in trouble of losing home ice and heading to Boston tied at 1-1.
