The Blackhawks Took A Lead And Kept It

This hasn’t been a theme for the postseason, but it was something that desperately needed to happen. Fortunately, it did.

Chicago made Vegas chase the game, and then Crawford kept the score intact. The stats crowd will tell you that this game was lop-sided, and it was. Vegas had a ton of chances and dominated long stretches of play.

In the end, it doesn’t matter. They didn’t get the win, and Chicago did.

Hockey is like that sometimes, and fortunately for Chicago, it was against Vegas for Game 4. If they did it once, they can do it again. Chicago needs to get the puck into Vegas’ end and keep it there.

As Matthew Highmore showed, just get the pucks on net. You might be rewarded. It might even be a game-winning-goal.

Chicago needs to keep it up.
