Less than 24 hours after an impressive effort against the first place Detroit Red Wings that saw all of the Hawks’ big players see big minutes, they were right back at it against the first place Boston Bruins.
In the first period and beginning of the second, Corey Crawford was able to keep the Hawks in it with some big saves. So it was only appropriate that Crawford ended any chance of the Hawks gaining a point when he let in a fairly harmless 55 foot wrist shot to extend Boston’s lead to 2-0. From there, it was all academic because the Hawks simply didn’t have enough in the tank to mount any kind of comeback and Boston was too good to let them back into it.
Move along, nothing to see here.
