Earlier this year, Dustin Byfuglien was one of the names people would bring up when discussing Chicago Blackhawks salary cap casualties. Sure, many said, he brings some unique skills to the table but he can also be very frustrating.
It’s difficult to imagine Big Buff going anywhere now, though. He’s been an absolute beast in the playoffs so far, scoring a hat trick against the Vancouver Canucks while getting in the heads of almost everyone. Byfuglien continued his hot streak last afternoon with a game winning goal, his fifth tally of the playoffs. It might not be the prettiest goal of the night, but it’s definitely the most vital.
