After falling down 3-0 in the series against the Vegas Golden Knights, the Chicago Blackhawks are finally in the win column, winning Sunday’s game 3-1.

Whew! Game 4 between Chicago and Vegas was intense for Blackhawks fans. The Golden Knights came out and did everything they could to close out the series and sweep the Chicago Blackhawks.

It didn’t happen though, and Chicago squeaked out 3-1 a win to force a fifth game on Tuesday.

Three things don’t seem like enough in a game like this one.

Alex DeBrincat scored (finally!) an empty netter. Robin Lehner took his first loss as Vegas’ netminder. Matthew Highmore scored a goal he admitted was unintentional, but a hilarious goal that ended up being the game-winner.

However, there are a few bigger issues that stood out in this contest.
