Chicago Blackhawks Vs Nashville Predators Game #2: Live Streaming, TV Listings, And More

By Keith Schultz

The Chicago Blackhawks went in and stole not only Game #1 of the Opening round matchup with the Nashville Predators, not only home ice advantage from the Predators, but may have stole their will after taking a game they surely should have lost being down 3-0 at the end of the first period.

The Predators had the Blackhawks down and out, but the Chicago Blackhawks showed the Nashville Predators, the Nashville Predators fans and anyone viewing on national television why they have won 2 out of the last 5 Stanley Cups and why they have a heart of a champion by coming back from down 3-0 to win Game #1.

Every comeback story has a hero and the main hero for the Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday night never scored a goal in the comeback, the hero was Lemont Native and Chicago Blackhawks back up goalie Scott Darling. Darling made 42 saves in relief of Corey Crawford who let three goals in on 12 shots and one really huge blunder play behind his own net.  While Crawford was a hot mess, Darling was a rock and picked up his first Stanley Cup Playoff win by going 4 plus periods without letting up a single Nashville Predators goal.

Another thing that was nice to see was Patrick Sharp picking up a goal very early in the playoffs.  Two seasons ago after a rough regular season, Sharp got off to a quick start in the playoffs against the Minnesota Wild and it carried over throughout the playoffs.

Not only was Sharp’s goal a pleasant surprise the really nice thing to see on the ice was Patrick Kane who may have described himself as rusty, but he was the catalyst for two powerplay goals to help tie the game.  Even a 80 percent Kane is better than no Kane at all.  The Blackhawks offense needed some creativity and #88 is the best at giving the Hawks all kinds of creativity on a nightly basis.
