More than a few people believe that the Chicago Blackhawks’ dramatic Game 5 win against the Los Angeles Kings was the best game of the 2014 postseason so far. It seems like some of the participants would agree … at least on Chicago’s side.
In fact, Blackhawks head coach Joel Qunneville gives it a special distinction in his own coaching career.
“I’ve seen a lot of games, been involved in a lot of games. That might have been the greatest overtime I’ve seen,” Quenneville said.
Corey Crawford probably said it best: it’s easier to look back at how thrilling that game was when you end up coming out on top.
