Another quality win for the Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday was among the most entertaining we’ve seen this regular season

If you missed Wednesday’s game between the Chicago Blackhawks and Pittsburgh Penguins, it’d be OK for you to be disappointed. These “potential Stanley Cup Final” matchups sometimes fail to live up to the build in the regular season, but this bout passed with flying colors.

The Blackhawks and Penguins gummed each other up for a period, then spent the second period trying to outdo each other with wild offensive sequences. Then they mixed together the two styles for the third period.

It was a really fun game to watch, especially for Blackhawks fans since the home team came out on top, 4-1. Patrick Kane netted his second hat trick in the last three games, Scott Darling had some fantastic moments and … Artem Anisimov was injured. Can’t win ’em all, I guess.

Here are five of my thoughts acquired from watching Wednesday’s contest.
