Well, through the first quarter of this season, it seems like MacKinnon is “finally” making that next step, and making us feel silly for worrying too much about […]

nhlrealtalk.com

The penalty kill unit that ranked fourth in the league entering the matchup, however, killed off all three of those penalties against the NHL's top-ranked power play, and did so in commanding fashion. The Blackhawks went 5-for-5 on the penalty kill in regulation, but couldn't stop the sixth one – a questionable slashing call on Nick Schmaltz –  in […]
