Magic from Jonathan Toews lifts the Chicago Blackhawks to victory yet again.
The Chicago Blackhawks were in heavy danger of going into game four with a 2-1 series deficit and facing elimination. Then, some old school Blackhawks magic came to the forefront and it was so much fun to watch. First, Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl were responsible for the Edmonton Oilers leading the game by a score of 3-2. The one-goal lead went well into the third period before the fourth line got it done as Matthew Highmore got the goal to tie the game.
What happened from there was very magical yet it felt very familiar. Jonathan Toews tipped in a Connor Murphy blast to give the Hawks a 4-3 lead with 1:16 left in the third period. It was the captain’s fourth goal of the playoffs. He always has shown up when it matters most and this strange season is no different.
