ONE GOAL! Fun and Frolik in Detroit

O, me of little faith!

Just like everyone else, I'd written the Blackhawks off after they went down 3 games to 1 to the Octopus Brigade. But they came back stormnig Saturday night and thrashed Detroit 4 to 1. And last night, down by a goal in the third period, they scored three times to beat the Wings 4 to 3, tie the series at three games each, and force a Game Seven at the UC tomorrow night.

Turns out they needed Michael Frolik's penalty shot goal that made it 4-2. Marian Hossa- in a situation in which the Hawks had a two-goal lead and merely had to kill off a couple of minutes to be certain of victory- took a totally inexplicable penalty, giving the Wings a power play on which Damien Brunner cut the margin to one goal- and created at least the potential for some drama.

But the Hawks and Corey Crawford stood firm, and now they're only one game from the Western Conference Finals.
