Nice! Yeah the Blues are doing great so far only two points behind Chicago.
As for the Hawks, I'm very happy with the game they are playing at the moment. Nice solid offense from Kane, Sharp, Hossa and the likes, definitely reflected well in a couple of them recent high scoring games. As for defense can't really fault Crawford, he's playing a good game and hasn't let us down yet so that's definitely good. I think I understand what you mean about getting complacent though. I noticed that a little bit in the hawks games so far, heading into the 3rd period the defense seems to get a bit sloppy allowing for some sneaky 3rd period goals for the opponents. Of course not saying the defense is horrible just needs to tighten up a bit heading into the later periods and prevent those late goals from the opponent.
Oh man the Blues are playing great this season. Alexander Steen is leading the NHL in goals so far. Defense is doing great. Halak and Elliot are doing great in the goal. Blues finally are able to score on the powerplay and kill powerplays. Only problem I've been noticing is that the Blues like to get complacent when they think they are gonna win. Just like last night, the Blues were 3-0 against the Flames, but they got complacent and the Flames ended up getting 2 goals in the 3rd period. If they can get over that then I think they have a good chance of making it to the cup this year. I see your a fan of our rivals, the Blackhawks, how are they doing this year? The hawks always have been a amazing team.
