The Daily Phil Esposito (1/3/11)

By Unknown author

In 8 games played last night there were 15 former Hawks that took the ice, with 13 of them being forwards. The two goalies split decisions while the skaters posted eight points, with three goals scored and five helpers. A hot-headed blue liner also stayed hot by adding a couple tallies. Enjoy. I am unsure if there will be an Espo tomorrow due to myself  my 3rd knee surgery in the past three years today at 2 pm. If I am stable enough to do it, I will have it posted. Hopefully the Hawks can pull a win out tonight too…

Dustin Byfuglien – Atlanta
25:57 TOI, one goal (16), game winning goal in OT, two shots, four shots
His 16th goal of the season in just 42 games. Last year in 82 games Byfuglien has a total of 17 goals last year.

Andrew Ladd – Atlanta
20:17 TOI, one goal (13), two shots
I will say, he is the Hawk that I miss the most from last years team. Overall a great guy, and plays 100% at all times. He is well deserved  to wear the Captain patch on his chest.
