Savard Has Faith In Havlat

from the Daily Southtown,
"I just tried to make some moves before I shot," Havlat said, making the impossible sound routine. The goal, Havlat's 10th of the season in nine games, gave the Hawks a 3-1 lead and dazzled the crowd of about 8,000 fans at the United Center. "Those goals, only excellent players can score those," Savard said. "To wait until the last second, then put it where he put it. ... He's a better player than I was."... Savard's changed personnel, moved players to different positions, and still next to nothing has gone in. But in Havlat he trusts. "With Marty on the half-boards (lined up even with a faceoff circle, in a spot to pass or shoot), we'll be able to execute more plays," Savard said.
