EThe Chicago Blackhawks pulled off their fifth straight win with an incredible comeback over the Colorado Avalanche on Sunday night at the United Center.  They’re now seven points ahead of the Minnesota Wild for first place in the Western Conference. 

Well that was fun, wasn’t it?!  The Chicago Blackhawks were down 3-1 after two periods to the last-place Colorado Avalanche on Sunday.  Everyone had written off this one to a tired team at the end of back-to-back games.  Oh well, chalk this one up as a loss and move on, right?

Well not so fast.  The ’Hawks scored four goals in a matter of three minutes in the final frame, and added an empty-net goal to make the final score 6-3 once it was all said and done.  Let’s get to our five thoughts from this incredible win.

Seventeen seconds, and then some!

Remember when the Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup in 2013 by scoring back-to-back goals in 17 seconds?  Well, they felt the need to revisit this Sunday.

First there was the Jonathan Toews’ goal that maybe shouldn’t have been because of him being offside.  Then Richard Panik scored 17 seconds later to tie the game 3-3.

Seventeen seconds after that, Artemi Panarin added a tally.  But wait, we’re not done!  Toews scored again to make it 5-3, which is fitting, because even if you took away his first goal, the ’Hawks would still be winning.

Four goals in a matter of three minutes, people!  Finally, Marcus Kruger put the icing on the cake with an empty-net goal to make the final score 6-3.
