The Blackhawks have scored 102 goals in 30 games and are second in the league in this category only trailing Pittsburgh Penguins which have 112. So which goal was your favorite in the first 30 games? Here are my four nominees.
1. Toews creates the turnover and assists on what proves to be the game winner in San Jose. This was a huge win against two of the hottest teams at the start of the season, and this goal was the tide turner in a pretty exciting game.
2. Hossa ties it up with 2.1 seconds left when the Hawks were totally outplayed and even though Hossa tied it the real hero of this contest was Ray Emery who held down the fort until #81 could tie it up.
3. Patrick Kane with a sick no look pass to Marian Hossa for the OT winner. This was also early in the season and gave the Hawks another 2 points on the road in Dallas.
4. This is the only goal that didn’t factor in the outcome of the game since it was already 7-1 at the time, but it just shows the talent the Kane has and well it just doesn’t get old watching.
There are 18 games left in the season and hopefully 16 more wins left after that but with such a great start it’s fun to review some of the great goals of the season. Here’s a poll to vote for your favorite goal.
