Blackhawks take a 1-0 lead – Kris Versteeg (1) Deflected shot – ASST: NONE
An assist should go to Peter Regin, since it was Regin rushing the net put the Wild defender in the position to deflect the shot in. Versteeg does a great job getting to the puck and getting position to take the shot. After the fluke goal the Wild scored on Crow in game 5, I’ll take a little puck luck on this one.
Once again Peter Regin driving hard to the net draws a defender over to him and Patrick Kane has a ton of space to roof one over Ilya Bryzgalov. The Hawk’s D picks up the assists on the play. After watching the Wild dominate the first few minutes of the OT, I was happy to see the Blackhawks get stronger as the period went on. Hopefully the Hawks can rest a few days and get ready for the next round.
The TSN feed didn’t like Kane’s “Showtime” comments and seemed upset that he scored the game winner…. I kind of hope Kane does a back flip as his next celebration while fireworks go off. That should really piss off the good ol boys.
And finally, yay! Hawks win!
