Hawks lose first 2 periods. Win game 3-2 OT

Just like the Sharks should not have won against the Hawks during the Circus trip,... the Hawks had no business winning this game tonight. If it wasn't for the spectacular play of Ray Emery, they would have lost. Patrick Sharp twice in as many nights puts in OT winner. And,...again, Marian Hossa was a dominant force on the ice. The Hawks gave up WAY TOO many chances on net the first two periods. Niklas Hjalmarrson looked like he couldn't handle the press from the Sharks,...and Leddy and Montador weren't so hot back there either. Brent Seabroo was a man amongst boys tonight. He needed to be, and so did his playmate Duncan Keith for the pressure from the Sharks 4th line was dominating against the Hawks.
With barely over a minute left to play, Face-off king Jonathan Toews won the draw down low  and it went to Patrick Sharp and he flung one over to Keith who immediately slid the puck for Marian Hossa as he one-timed the puck high up the slot to where Mr.Hands....Andrew Brunette deflected it in passed a dominating Antti Niemi. In O.T. Marian Hossa,... who should have been the Number 3 star (wasn't named a star), took another shot that rebounded right in front to where Patrick Sharp literally crashed the net and didn't really shoot the puck but shoved it in as he was falling in the net himself. Antti has been dominant against his former mates. This is only his 7th game against the Hawks (4 victories).

Ray Emery who was voted #3 star (and EASILY should have been voted the #1 star) was outstanding.
