1st goal - Toews knocks the puck down from about 3'9" for the tip in. Not Sparks fault. 2nd goal - Debrincat with the tic tac tow play. Blown D coverage. Not Sparks fault. 3rd goal - Hayden's goal. Sparks stopped the first shot. No D coverage. No one covered Hayden. Hayden gets the second shot with no one even attempting to get to him. Not Sparks fault. 4th goal - Manning shot from point. Sparks completely screened on the shot. Not Sparks fault. 5th goal - Kane goes 5 hole. No coverage and Kane should not be left wide open. Sparks wishes he had that one back. 6th goal - Kane with the ripper. Off Hainsey and in. Not Sparks fault. So for you people freaking out about Sparks, you are wrong. If you don't think so, go look at the replays. People start piling on. Probably even some people who didnt watch the game are also piling on. Many of you are ready to run Sparks out of the league after his first game. Shame on most of you. Freaking gang mentality. Not sure if some of you know this or not, but we won the game. Sparks only had 1 iffy goal. Let me guess, most of you are also ignoring 3 highlight reel goals also. He is athletic. That toe save was freaking awesome. "Oh, he is not NHL ready, he let 6 goals in". STOP!! Last season Freddy let in 5 goals 5 times and let in 6 goals 5 times. Oh, did I mention he is young also. Oh, did I mention it was his first game this year? Which doesn't really matter because only 1 goal was iffy. Oh, did I mention he is also the back up goalie....not that it matters because 5 of those goals were not his fault. "He is ECHL caliber". I heard that a few times. Are you serious? 5 of the goals are not his fault and he cannot be blamed for them. Here is why the Hawks scored 6 goals....poor D zone coverage. If you don't see the puck, you cannot stop it....most times. If the puck is deflected in or re-directed at some point, then the goalie cannot be blamed. But again, mostly blown D zone coverage. Now lets see how many of you are going to jump on the "Sparks is not good" after 1 game....which most goals were not his fault. Sparks was mobile, athletic, and well positioned. That is a fact. Blown D coverage is also a fact. Many tip ins and screens, was also a fact. He also had 3 highlight reel saves and that is a fact.
