The Night That Was: Clutch Edition

They just scored a playoff goal. They are now closer to being certified clutch. - Harry How

LA thoroughly beat the Hawks last night to go up 3-1 in the series.

Recap:

Chicago Blackhawks 2 Los Angeles Kings 5

Watched Anthony Bourdain CNN show instead, but I gather that Corey Crawford was rather poor and the Kings were rather good. I blame this loss on the trade of the clutchiest player who ever played in clutch time, Dave Bolland.

Dustin Tokarski was once carjacked before a playoff game and ended up winning the game. That's because he's a winner and a clutch player.

The Montreal Canadiens are going to have to be clutch after they lost game 4 because Alex Galchenyuk isn't clutch.

Marc Crawford is not a clutch coach but the Florida Panthers are said to be interested in him.
