The Chicago Blackhawks needed a win in the worst way. Alex DeBrincat had a good night which made that all possible on Friday night.
The Chicago Blackhawks have been on the down lately. They are probably going to be sellers on this Monday’s trade deadline as they head to their third straight playoff miss but they still needed a win in the worst way. It didn’t matter that they didn’t play very well at this point as long as they earned the win to try and get some momentum back.
It was all possible thanks to the play of Alex DeBrincat. DeBrincat is having a rather tough season for a guy of his stature. He tied the game and then won it in overtime and those were just his 15th and 16th goals of the season. He will probably be around the 20 goal mark this season which isn’t bad at all but when you had 41 the year before, it is a disappointment.
