The Chicago Blackhawks have been eliminated by the Vegas Golden Knights in five games.
The Chicago Blackhawks ended a hard-fought playoff run as the Vegas Golden Knights took care of them in the fifth game to win the series 4-1. The Hawks were outmatched for most of the series and honestly, they were lucky to even squeak one win out of the Golden Knights. They are a great team that has a legit chance to go on and win the Stanley Cup. They attack in waves, use the defense to attack and defend in all three zones, and get great goaltending.
The Blackhawks were right there in game five as they did have a 2-0 lead and even a 3-2 lead but Vegas pushed hard in the third period to win the game 4-3. They outshot the Hawks 39 to 26 which says a lot about how the Hawks were able to attack and how they were able to defend. In addition to being outmatched because their roster is far inferior, they were outcoached as well. This was not a fine performance by Jeremy Colliton.
