Game #14 – Hawks vs. Sharks: Lineups & How They Were Built

Hawks

Notes: Morning skate on the West Coast came after we put this together, but Kane spent most of his time with Strome and Top Cat on Sunday so we’d expect a repeat…Carpenter and Kampf should be together and form a hybrid 4th/checking line, with Dach getting better linemates than this. But the Hawks don’t have enough wingers to go around, so we’ll just live with it for now and hope Andrew Shaw changes brains with someone…Keith seems to be sacrificing himself for Boqvist so far, which is an upset. Watch him get over to Boqvist’s corner to get the retrievals and stay within himself. See how long it lasts…

Sharks

Notes: Something is rotten here, as the Sharks are getting run over most nights…Vlasic has been an utter disaster this year so far and has firmly earned this third-pairing standing. Maybe he really is just younger Seabrook…Marleau’s only two goals came against the Hawks a month ago…Couture also seems to be slowing down in his 30s, and is a big reason why this team isn’t popping like last year…
