The Chicago Blackhawks got a big win last night against the Edmonton Oilers, and we have some big takeaways to talk about when it comes to this game.

You always want to get off on the right foot in any series. If that is normally true in a best of seven, just think how much more important it is in a best of five matchups. Chicago managed to get things done today, and for that, I am happy and excited to see where we go from here.

I will be honest while watching this game I was constantly on edge and just felt like Edmonton was the better team and that they were going to strike at any second. Then with 10 minutes left in the game, I started to relax, only to be tense again for the last five minutes.

It really feels like we snuck away with that win, and yet we did dominate throughout most of the game. I guess that’s a good thing as it just shows how much further this team can go in the next few games as they gear up for game two and game three.

When you look at this game in its entirety all that matters is that we got the win and that we are one step closer to ending this series, but for right now we are going to be a little more nit-picky and look at three big takeaways from the Blackhawks game one win against the Edmonton Oilers!
