The Chicago Blackhawks went into the year thinking they were going to be one of the worst teams in the National Hockey League. Without Corey Crawford or Robin Lehner in the mix, it was clear that they needed someone new to step up. It got worse when Malcolm Subban and Collin Delia started the season 0-3-1 while giving up five goals in every game. Before we knew it, Kevin Lankinen had a shot and ran with it. Now, we are months into the season and he has led this team into a playoff race and is looking good.
Kevin Lankinen is putting up insane numbers for the Chicago Blackhawks.
On Thursday night, the Hawks needed to put together another big win. They were coming off a big win at home to end a losing streak on the road. Keeping it going was very important. The Florida Panthers are one of the best teams in the league so taking two in a row from them would be huge for their confidence.
