Still, I agree, have to give the Wings credit. They have elevated their play the last 2 games. Hawks need to find their top level if they want a strong chance of winning the series.
66 shots? The box score says shots favored Chicago 40-30. Still a little unbalanced, but not 66-40 unbalanced. Maybe I'm looking at the wrong statsheet...?
Also, I wouldn't call it a phantom interference. It's a judgment call for sure, but Shaw was definitely in the crease.
Howard is playing lights out. That's why Detroit is ahead in the series.
