1. Jonathan Toews– Game #5 Opening Round Vs St. Louis Blues
There was only one goal that made me jump off my couch during the Blackhawks 2014 playoff run and it happened in Game #$ of the opening round against the St. Louis Blues. Both teams could have easily swept the series but somehow the home team had taken the first four games of the series. The Hawks were looking to take control of the series before heading home for Game #6 and after aDavid Backes
blindly threw the puck up the middle of the ice and the Captain was there on a breakaway andRyan Miller
couldn’t stop him and the Hawks never looked back against the Blues.
I wish I was putting a Game #7 goal from the Western Conference Finals in the list butNick Leddy
and a bad bounce got in the way of that part, so Toews putting in the OT goal against the Blues will be my #1 goal of the season. What was your favorite goal of 2014?
