The Chicago Blackhawks got off to a strong start from the time the puck dropped Sunday afternoon, leading to their eventual 3-1 victory in Game 1 against the Los Angeles Kings.
Wednesday was a big night for the Blackhawks as they recorded a shutout victory over the Blues; a Blues team they had yet to defeat in the regular season.
Patrick Kane scored a highlight-reel goal and Brandon Saad found the back of the net with less than three minutes left to narrow the gap, but it wasn't enough as the Blackhawks fell in a 3-2 loss
First the Blackhawks ended the Kings' 18-game streak without allowing a first-period goal. Then they defeated the Predators after a previous 7-2 loss in Nashville just last month.
