Game #27 – Blues vs. Hawks: Lineups & How They Were Built

Blues

Notes: The Blues are beat up, missing four forwards who would be playing. They picked up Brouwer from whatever hay-pile he was staring at in BC, and that’s when you know it’s a problem…the Blues are throwing Jay Gallon at the Hawks, which gives you some idea of what they think the challenge will be here…that gremlin Perron has a seven-game point streak…Scenn is shooting over 20%, that won’t last…

Hawks

Notes: Nope, that’s not a mistake. The Hawks will go with 11 forwards and six d-men tonight, and this isn’t the end of “Leatherheads,” a movie only we saw and only because it was on late one night when we were too shitfaced to go straight to bed. Due to cap constraints the Hawks can’t call up another forward, so they’ll skate Kane 42 minutes and call in innovation…Andrew Shaw is probably hurt, but it would not be a bad idea to scratch his ass with the normal allotment of forwards because he’s been abject…that’s an AHL defense plus Connor Murphy…
