The Chicago Blackhawks are in a tough spot being down 3-0 in their playoff series.
The Chicago Blackhawks didn’t capitalize on their opportunity to make Chicago feel better after a pretty horrible sports day. The Chicago White Sox lost both games of a doubleheader to the St. Louis Cardinals who haven’t played in two weeks and the Chicago Cubs blew a lead to the Milwaukee Brewers and lost in extra innings. It was a tough day made complete when the Hawks lost to the Vegas Golden Knights by a final score of 2-1.
The Hawks kept up with Vegas on the shot board as they actually outshot them 27-26. Both Corey Crawford and Marc-Andre Fleury made some nice saves in this one to keep the score tight. It was a tough scene when William Karlson scored a short-handed goal just 4:12 into the first period. Vegas is very hard to keep up with in general but it is really hard to come back when you go down early.
