UPPER DECK THROWBACK THURSDAY CREATE THE CAPTION PROMOTION: SCOTT DARLING
Posted On 16 Apr 2015 / 44 Comments
Oh my, Darling.
The Chicago Blackhawks have a future in their rookie goaltender, Scott Darling. In his young 14-game NHL career, the 26-year-old has shown that no task is too tall and no stage is too daunting. Thrown into the second period after the Nashville Predators hung an early three-spot on Corey Crawford, Darling was tasked with one job: stop the bleeding. In his first career playoff appearance, the homegrown talent helped save the Blackhawks from falling into an early 1-0 series hole after shutting down 42 shot attempts. Chicago’s captain, Jonathan Toews, along with goals from Niklas Hjalmarsson and Patrick Sharp, helped lead the comeback. Duncan Keith sealed the contest with his double-overtime one-timer from the blue stripe to give the Blackhawks the 4-3 win.
Whether or not Darling gets the net in Game 2 is still up in the air. Blackhawks head coach, Joe Quenneville, said he will announce the call later this afternoon. Regardless of the decision, if you're a Blackhawks fan, it has to be reassuring to know that there’s a trustworthy alternative if the floodgates open. We’ll see you Friday night for Game 2.
