Chicago Blackhawks Defeat the Vancouver Canucks 5-2

What a win. The best game the Blackhawks played all year came when they absolutely needed it most. After laying an egg against the Sharks earlier this week, the Hawks came out flying last night against Vancouver. They went up 2-0 in the first period due to goals from Alex Debrincat(goal of the year?) and Andrew Shaw. It was a great first period overall, as they ended up with 17 shots on goal in that period alone. For reference, they had eight shots on goal through two periods against San Jose on Tuesday. The second period was a lot of the same, as both teams had chances. However, the Hawks failed to finish any of their prime opportunities and the Canucks scored a power play goal a minute into the period. Moving onto the third, the fast-paced hockey continued as both teams had chances but failed to convert for the majority of the period. Then, with about five minutes left in the period, Dylan Strome made an unbelievable hustle play to keep the puck in the offensive zone on the power play, which lead to Patrick Kane absolutely BURYING a shot from the left side. That was awesome. And Kaner going crazy after the goal was all you needed to know about how much he cares. And, in the post-game interview, he promised that the team is going to turn things around. I love that man. Go Blackhawks. Right the Ship. Get back to the playoffs. One Goal.


PS: It won’t let me set a featured image. I was going to put the one of Strome and Debrincat celebrating because they’re best friends. That would’ve been cool.
