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?
