Game 19 Recap: Blackhawks 3 - Avalance 2 (SO)






Of course it was going to a shootout.

 

Man, I wish we could play the Blackhawks 82 times a year, as the three matches between the clubs so far have been dandies. Tonight's game was a lot of fun to watch. Craig Anderson is a freaking monster. Matt Duchene was marvelous (and, still scoreless). Kyle Cumiskey learned that he doesn't need to think before shooting (but then forgot later on in the game). The Avs' powerplay still needs work, but at least they stayed out of the box tonight.

I would have loved to see more than 3 shots in the 3rd period, however. I also would have loved to see someone other than Darcy Tucker take that 3rd shootout try. I still would like to see better linemates for Duchene (how about TJ Hensick, who is playing very well). And I certainly could have done without the Altitude graphics person misspelling the word "Sargeant"...especially on freaking Veteran's Day. But, you can't have it all. The game was exciting, the Avs got a point. I'm moderately happy.

Cutting this short to again try for a game of mini golf. Kudos on breaking a thousand in tonight's game thread. You guys rock.

 

Oh, and our favorite Chicago radio personality - chiavsfan - was covering the game. Here's his terrific radio recap.
