Yeah, this game was a lot closer than I expected and I found it very exciting. Personally, I'm way more of a fan of big saves and close games. Although goal scoring is exciting, obviously. I love games like this. And as somebody else said, Blues vs Kings Game 1 was exciting for those reasons. It was really close and both goaltenders were spectacular (aside from Quick's flub in overtime). I thought Harding displayed an incredible show, along with Crawford. I've been surprised by Crawford all season long, to be completely honest. I honestly was not expecting a goaltending duel out of this game. And honestly, I personally believe this will be the last close game. The Wild will take one game, the Hawks will take three more.
