You don't have to be hockey guys to do a decent interview - Ron Callan should be taking notes.

What do you say about a 3-0 game?  The Chiefs put a lot of shots on, many of them of good quality.  There were several posts / crossbars both ways, but the 'Hawks found a way to finish - and the Chiefs didn't.

I felt that the 'Hawks played well physically - Iverson played on the edge, without going over.  Peters threw his body around, as well as de Champlain.  Carruth did a nice job of establishing his crease, and he probably got away with that one in the 1st, catching Playfair up high with his paddle.

Todd made the point in postgame that these two games were vastly different, and the 'Hawks can play whatever style you wish.  I think they are correct.

The Chiefs have held the 'Hawks to 2-for-12 on the powerplay so far, after going 79.4% on the PK during the season.  They've improved to 85.3% in the playoffs.  As has been the case, the PP looks different than the numbers reflect.  Its a good powerplay.

Its going to be interesting to see what happens in Spokane - you figure the goal is to split, which would put the 'Hawks up 3-1 - which is pretty good.
