DETROIT – The Chicago Blackhawks thought they had the equalizer, thought they tied the game early in the third period.
But the call didn’t go their way.
There was a time in Patrick Kane’s career when bad penalties, and too many of them, were part of his game.
Faster skating, dictating the tempo more, firing a plethora of shots at the opposing goaltender: that is Chicago Blackhawks hockey.
The waiting game: it can be beneficial or a burden, depending on how you treat it. Either way, the Blackhawks are stuck playing it.
