The Chicago Blackhawks were up against one of the best in the league and the rookie scored enough goals to lead them to victory.
The Chicago Blackhawks haven’t had much to boast about this season. One thing that is an exception to that is the play of Dominik Kubalik. He had a hat trick in Thursday night’s game against the Tampa Bay Lightning to lead to a 5-2 victory. It was the first hat trick in Kubalik’s MHL career. He has had a fantastic season and this performance against one of the league’s best teams speaks to that.
Kubalik and the Blackhawks were put into that position to win thanks to the play of Corey Crawford. He was outstanding in the goal for Chicago once again. The team didn’t really do him any favors as they let the Lightning put 39 shots on goal and Crawford saved 37 of them. Crawford was brilliant and the rest of the team was able to capitalize on that.
