The Chicago Blackhawks came into last night’s game with only a little bit of hope left in their playoff dreams. They knew that they are were in big trouble already and losing to the Nashville Predators would make things even worse. If they lost, they would end up being six points out of a playoff spot. Well, they ended up winning in overtime to keep themselves within three of the spot. In order to get the win, Malcolm Subban had to stand on his head and he did.
Malcolm Subban was amazing for the Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday night.
You know the team might have not deserved to win when a goalie gets praised for a game that he gave up four. Subban made so many great saves in this one to keep his team in it. He gave up the four goals in the 5-4 victory but the Hawks easily could have given up seven or eight with the way he played. He was named the second star of the game thanks to his 36 saves on 40 shots.
