Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times,
It was the manner in which the Hawks gave up the game-winner that had Joel Quenneville upset. As the clock wound down, the Hawks had the puck deep in the Blues’ zone. And instead of playing it safe, they went for the jugular. With three forwards already down low, defenseman Brent Seabrook pinched in, too. So when Toews’ soft shot toward the goalmouth was taken by St. Louis’ Alex Pietrangelo, it left only Duncan Keith back to defend against a sudden three-on-one. Crawford was kicking himself for not making a save he said he makes “a bunch of times,” but Quenneville blamed the over-aggressive play of his team.
“Brutal loss,” he said. “Look back at the last three points we left on the table. We’ve got to get that game to overtime. I don’t know what we were thinking about. We’ll take one [point] and then maybe two. Getting none is unacceptable.”
