The Answer to Question #3 is Corey Crawford.

The Chicago Blackhawks struggled in overtime in the 2013-2014 season and the player that took the most heat from it was Crawford.

After 2013-2014 Crawford really improved at penalty shots and winning games since then even though hardly any games went to the shoot out with the 3 on 3 overtime.

The question is the NHL really better having to have a winner and loser every night? Remember when there were ties and getting a road point was a big deal?  I understand that nobody likes a tie and I guess there of course were teams that would play for the tie but sometimes I feel that I would be just fine with a tie at the end of a 5 minute overtime.

Sam Lo Presti is the Answer To Question #4

In one of those games that seems impossible to be duplicated because let’s be honest, they couldn’t duplicate it during the 1980’s when the scores were ridiculous so in this day and age of bigger goalies, bigger equipment and better trained goalies and oh by the way a clogged up middle of the ice there is no way that a team will put up 80 shots on goal.

Well on that night back in 1941 Lo Presti stopped 80 of 83 shots and yet his remarkable night still ended up in a loss.  There are a lot of NHL records that could be broken and some that could last forever and this seems like an unbreakable record if the games doesn’t change the way it is played. 

The Answer to Question #5 is of course Glen Hall

Glen Hall was nicknamed Mr. Goalie and he was the originator of the butterfly style and he helped lead the Chicago Blackhawks to the 1961 Stanley Cup.

The record Hall holds is playing in 502 consecutive games in net.  Hall won three Vezina trophies and was a gentleman as well as a great goalie with his number 0 hanging from the United Center rafters.  Hall is one of the best goalies ever and one of the Blackhawks all-time greats.
