Enhanced Box Score: Blackhawks 2, Hurricanes 1 (OT) – May 6th, 2021

Chicago Blackhawks

Now that’s how you end a season series!

The Chicago Blackhawks close their play on the road this season with a dramatic come from behind win over the Carolina Hurricanes 2-1 in overtime tonight. They will no longer have to play the Hurricanes this season, finishing the year with a 3-4-1 record against them, snapping a three-game losing streak against the Hurricanes. Chicago also snaps a six-game losing streak overall. Even with the loss, the Hurricanes exit this game with a 13-game points steak (9-0-4) tying a franchise record. Good for them.

Tonight saw the wonkiest goal against the Blackhawks I think we’ve seen all season and it almost was the difference in the game.

Duncan Keith would leave the game and not return following that collision with the referee. Chicago also lost Brett Connolly to an incidental collision in the second period, so the Blackhawks finished the game with just 16 healthy skaters.

It looked like all was lost and the Blackhawks were headed for their second time being shutout this season, but late in the third period Riley Stillman deflected a Pius Suter shot for his first ever NHL goal to tie the game 1-1 late.

That’s a memorable goal in the Stillman household for sure.

The Blackhawks would force overtime and in the extra frame Alex DeBrincat would find the game-winner on his stick to give the Blackhawks the 2-1 win and extend his points streak to six games and his goal streak to five games. The cat is hot.

Collin Delia made 36 saves on 37 shots in his fourth start of the season. He gets his first win of the season and moves his record on the year to 1-3-0 with a .903 save percentage in five appearances this season. In three appearances against the Hurricanes this week, Delia made 77 saves on 82 total shots faced (.939). It’s almost like he can play in this league, eh?
