NASHVILLE — When Scott Darling got the call on Wednesday night, the emotions he felt were understandable.
“A lot of nerves, excitement,” he said. “Very similar to my first game.”
The Blackhawks got off to a rough start in Game 1 against Nashville, allowing three goals in the first period, which prompted Joel Quenneville to replace Corey Crawford for Scott Darling.
NASHVILLE — Corey Crawford finished a great regular season in which he was sometimes the reason the Blackhawks won games. On Wednesday, he lasted all of 20 minutes.
Not only did the Predators do an impressive job at "keeping the red out" for Game 1, but they kept them quiet as well.
