Madlax dad here, I have seen many Hawks games since we play them a lot. This was by far the worst I have seen them play, and they still took Tigers to OT. They are a solid team, and i would not use the word parity. I saw both games against the Tigers in the last 3 days...there is a clear difference between the two teams. Hawks are more complete, while everything on the Tigers goes thru their big attacker. Right now in 2026, it is clearly the Hawks and then parity below them.
