Realistic Expectations

The other night while the Blackhawks were being shelled by Detroit and Nikolai Khabibulin was miraculously keeping the Blackhawks in the game, broadcaster Troy Murray said something like, “the Blackhawks need to tighten up here and not let Detroit freewheel-not that the Blackhawks can’t skate with Detroit…”

I was stunned.  He couldn’t be serious. The Blackhawks skate with the Red Wings?  The Hawks won that game in the shootout but thanks to Khabibulin and the 15 pounds he lost that game-not because of any great play by the Blackhawks.

Fast forward to today: Hawks lose 7-2 to Detroit in a match that showed, The Blackhawks can not skate with Detroit.
