It doesn’t really get too much simpler than that.
Sure, the Devils equalized in the 2nd, and then pulled within one in the 3rd. Was anyone worried? Didn’t think so. While the Devils certainly work awfully hard and they do their best to close down whatever space there is, they simply couldn’t keep up with the Hawks. Nor could they really create much on their own, and the Hawks didn’t give them much. Throw in a couple goofy/bad goals from The Ginger, and only 12 shots against, and you have just about as assured a performance heading into the Christmas break as you could ask. Let’s get to The Two Obs.
