The Chicago Blackhawks absolutely have to win game three against the Vegas Golden Knights.
The Chicago Blackhawks are down in the series to the Vegas Golden Knights two games to none. The Knights are a far superior team but the Hawks have some top-heavy talent that can make any given game very interesting. They didn’t really do that in game one but it feels like they took a big step in game three. Vegas needed overtime to defeat the Hawks in game two but they did win the game nonetheless. Game three is about as much of a must-win scenario as you can have in a non-elimination game.
If they go down 3-0 in the series, they are in big trouble. Very few teams in sports history have ever come back from a deficit like that. It makes it even harder when you think about how much tougher and more tenacious on the puck the Golden Knights are. They come at you in waves and punish anyone who makes a mistake.
