The Hawks need the win badly but their play on the ice isn’t matching the urgency of the moment. An opening shift turnover by Marian Hossa led to the lone goal of the game while the Hawks squandered a great scoring opportunity on a 5-on-3 power play.
Later, the Hawks had 1:44 with two Blues’ in the box but only managed a couple of good looks at goalie Ty Conklin. A recent trend of giving up few shots but trailing continued. The Blues only put four on net to the Hawks eight but they lead in the game.
