The Chicago Blackhawks are playing “fun hockey.”
That’s what Patrick Kane called it at least, after their 5-2 over the Washington Capitals.
With one goal and a team-leading five shots, why wouldn’t it be fun?
But more importantly, in between all the fun, is still the long-lasting question: Who’s your goalie?
After starting on the bench for the sixth straight time on Tuesday, he came on to lead the Blackhawks for a 4-3 shootout win, and back-to-back wins over Dallas and tonight’s victory against the Caps.
Crawford has stopped 54 of 57 in his three-straight appearances while going 3-0. Against the Stars, some said Crawford looked as poised as he did last year.
Here’s the remainder of the Blackhawks schedule:
The Blackhawks will have some battles to overcome with the Vancouver Canucks, New Jersey Devils, Nashville Predators, and the Detroit Red Wings and St. Louis Blues.
But if Crawford is finally back to the true form he’s shown, then Chicago should have a “fun” playoffs.
