In a tight game like the Chicago Blackhawks’ eventual 3-1 win against the Los Angeles Kings, seeing a 2-0 lead turn into a 1-1 tie after a disallowed goal and then a tying tally moments later can be devastating.
The Blackhawks didn’t deny that it was a tough moment in the second period, yet they managed to move on and eventually win 3-1.
Attribute it to their championship experience or any other factors, but the ‘Hawks managed to shake it off.
“Yeah, I think that’s what it was all about, was just trying to forget about it, not get too worked up about a call that didn’t go our way,” Jonathan Toews said after the game. “To add insult to injury, they came right back to score to tie it up not too long after. That’s where we did a good job of just forgetting about what happened, moving on, focusing on our game [and] not getting away from [it].”
Head coach Joel Quenneville essentially gave a no comment response upon being asked about the disallowed goal, but he was awfully animated when it actually happened.
