Hawks-Coyotes: Three Stars for Game 5

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

The Chicago Sun-Times' "3 stars" from Game 5 of the Blackhawks' first-round series against the Phoenix Coyotes:

1 - Jonathan Toews

The center extended Hawks' season with the game-winning goal 2:44 into overtime and second tally of the postseaon. The Haws are the first team to have seven consecutive playoff games decided in overtime.

2 - Mike Smith

The Coyotes goalie stopped 36 of 38 shots in yet another strong performance against the Hawks and even assisted on Phoenix's first goal. He has a .940 save percentage in the series.

3 - Corey Crawford

The Hawks goalie rebound from soft game-winning goals in overtime of Games 3 and 4 with 18 saves, including a nice glove save on Michal Rozsival in the second period to keep his team within a goal.

If we don`t beat ourselves I don`t think Phoenix can beat us. In the 3 losses we made crucial mistakes, especially game 4. Game 5 WAS BEAUTIFUL.
