First a quick comment on Hawks last game Sunday night against the Flames ... Can you say 'the great escape'? You can bet Calgary will not let a game like that get away from the them again. Big Hoss scores the tying goal with 2.4 ticks of the clock left and then Kaner wins it for the Hawks in a shootout. Additionally the Razor was sharp in net making 45 of 47 saves setting a new career high in saves.
Tonight, the beloved face the Sharks who are coming into tonight's game at 7-1-1 after dropping last night's contest to the Ducks in Anaheim 2-1. The Hawks and Sharks will use tonight to judge just how good they are as this game will be between the two best teams in the Western Conference. With two days rest a poor start by the Hawks will be inexcusable as they've regained their legs that were clearly dead in Calgary three days ago. The Rat will be back in the lineup, which is a mild relief after missing only one game due to an ankle injury that looked a lot worse at the time than it ended up being. The Rat figures to jump right back into the middle between the Patricks.
