UPPER DECK THROWBACK THURSDAY CREATE THE CAPTION PROMOTION: Jonathan Toews
Posted On 11 Jun 2015 / 48 Comments
In the playoffs, it doesn't matter how ugly the wins come, as long as they do. The Chicago Blackhawks managed to eke by the Tampa Bay lightning for the Stanley Cup Finals' fourth consecutive one-point margin victory last night, 2-1.
The Blackhawks' superstars have been overshadowed by the Lightning's high-flying offense this series. In fact, the sluggish start has seemed to become a pattern for the Hawks. But the underlying difference has been Tampa's inability to find the back of the net due to stellar goal tending by Corey Crawford.
After the first period of play last night, Chicago totaled just two shots on the Lightning's backup goalie, Andrei Vasilevskiy, and 19 total shots for the game. Leave it to the Captain to help pick the team's proverbial backs off the ropes. In the second frame, Jonathan Toews flicked in the bouncing puck and sent it past the the Lightning's 20-year-old netminder.
On the brink of a signature gritty defensive performance by the Blackhawks, the Lightning were preparing to once again battle back. That was until Patrick Kane set up Brandon Saad for the go-ahead goal and eventual game-winner.
The series is now knotted at two games apiece. The margin for error is razor thin. Both teams march back to Amalie Arena for a critical Game 5 Saturday night.
