Blackhawks Daily: Stanley Cup Playoffs Sees Some Outrage

Published

on

The Stanley Cup Playoffs finished Sunday with some controversy and also some rage from fanbases. From Connor McDavid taking a shot to the chops and the Bruins quite the argument on a goal that sure looked like interference, the intrigue went up another level Sunday night.

The Boston Bruins and Florida Panthers are in the middle of a very intense physical series. Both sides have a ton of skill but this was all about animosity and playing a strong defensive game. 

Boston had a 2-0 lead after the first period thanks to goals by David Pastrnak and Brandon Carlo. That would be it for them. Florida scored three unanswered to win the game 3-2, including a controversial goal from Sam Bennett.

The Bruins now trail the series three games to one.

Last season, the Panthers came back from being down 3-1 to beat the Bruins. Now, the tides have turned. Will the Panthers be able to hang on unlike the Bruins last year or will Boston make the comeback instead? 

In the later game, the Edmonton Oilers took on the Vancouver Canucks in game three of their series. Edmonton won game two in overtime so game three started with a 1-1 series tie. A lot of people had the Oilers as the better team in the series but the Canucks don’t seem to agree. 

After some back and forth early, the Vancouver Canucks pulled off a 4-3 victory that included holding Connor McDavid off the scoresheet. Artur Silovs, the third-string Canucks goalie, earned his fourth win of the playoffs and it came against this high-octane Oilers offense.

Monday night should see some more great Stanley Cup Playoffs action. The New York Rangers will try to close out their series against the Carolina Hurricanes. New York has a 3-1 lead. In the West, the Dallas Stars will try to put the Colorado Avalanche on the brink as they come in with a 2-1 series lead.

Blackhawks In Case You Missed It

Trading up to select Cole Eiserman at the 2024 NHL Draft is something that would be very smart for the Chicago Blackhawks.

Kevin Korchinski had an up-and-down season this year but he is going to be a star in the NHL.

Connor Bedard is showing off at IIHF Worlds. He is reminding the world that the Chicago Blackhawks are coming with him leading the way.

Mackenzie Entwistle left it all out on the ice for the Blackhawks this season. What’s his outlook as he enters the offeseason as a restricted free agent?
