Too Little Too Late For Blackhawks

Despite two goals in the second period and an onslaught of shots in the third, the Chicago Blackhawks were unable to come back from a three goal deficit.

The Blackhawks eight game winning streak was ended in a 3-2 loss to the Florida Panthers.

A sloppy and low energy first period by the Blackhawks led to three unanswered goals by the Panthers. From that point on it was a much different hockey game.

Blackhawks starting goalie Corey Crawford was pulled after the first 20 minutes, he faced eight shots and only stopped five. The veteran Marty Turco was perfect through the final two periods, only facing seven shots.

The Blackhawks turned up the intensity in the second period, scoring goals by Patrick Kane and Marian Hossa within three minutes of each other. But those two goals would prove to be too little too late as the Blackhawks were unable to find a third goal despite 29 shots over the final two periods.

    8 game streak was nice but when there CORE is firing on all cylinders there one of the best in league the problem is the HAWKS won the cup on depth which this inexperienced GM traded away obviously for yhe right reasons but we all know STAN BOWMAN is no GM and I think Dlae schooled him tonight. Ebentually STAN BOWMAN will sink this potential dynesty. FIRE STAN BOWMAN

      hey tool, you’ve posted this after every hawks loss, be a true fan and stop b.i.tching about something that had to be done… clearing cap space. bowman is not the reason we had to di it, it’s because tallon spent too much money and because bettman has a hard cap, bowman had to bail his a.s.s out.

      stop being a tool and suck it up. if you gotta beef with bowman take it elsewhere, because i’m tired of hearing it here. be gone

    bad loss by the hawks, came out with NO effort in the 1st period, and crawford got murdered, he couldn’t stop a fly. then the hawks played better and fought back, but it wasn’t enough as vokoun stood on his head in the 3rd and held the panthers lead for a win.

    in my opinion, coach Q should’ve given crawford the night off, started turco tonight and played crawford tomorrow in a big game against the lightning. hopefully the hawks don’t sleepwalk through the 1st period and get off to a better start tomorrow.
