My Soap Box thoughts
As of the past two games, my boys have been shut out. As a dedicated fan, this is not good news and not how they need to be playing in the month of February. In fact, the Hawks haven't been shut out two games in a row since October of 2014. The next game is Friday verses the Jets at 7 p.m. and it is essentially do-or-die in terms improving.
What I mean by improving is winning and getting more shots-on-goal during power plays and throughout the duration of the game in general as long as having the defensive players help out Corey Crawford and Raanta (both of our goalies) A LOT more. Without help from their teammates, goalies really can't be expected to save pucks all by themselves and I dislike how some Hawks fans on Google Plus are just hating on Crawford.
People, IT TAKES A TEAM TO WIN AND LOSE TOGETHER. If one player isn't doing their job to the best of their ability, then the whole team suffers. Just because Crow may let in two goals in a game, there are multiple reasons why such as being screened a few players from the opposing team or simply an unlucky bounce off a random player's skate. As far as I know, Crow ISN'T going anywhere. So support him with the Hawks or simply DON'T be a Hawks fans. It is as simple as that.
For those of you readers, who follow other sports besides hockey, what do you think about this in relation to your sport?
