Every GOAL from Game 1 between Chicago Blackhawks vs Edmonton Oilers (Stanley Cup Qualifiers)

Who else would open up the scoring? Why Connor McDavid of course, that’s who!

Then the Hawks took the lead on Captain Toews’ goal:

 

Brandon Saad put the Hawks up by 2 early:

 

And the Captain wasn’t done scoring as Jonathan Toews buried his second of the game in the first period, claiming 5th all-time in Blackhawks playoff scoring!

 

The Oilers got back on the board again in the second thanks to a powerplay tally by Draisaitl:

 

But just like the first period, the Hawks answered quickly with a powerplay goal of their own to go back up by three (5-2):

 

Kubalik would pick up his 5th point of the game (2 goals – 3 assists) as the Hawks kept piling it on going up by four late in the 2nd period (6-2):

 

James Neal would start a mini rally for the Oilers with a powerplay marker late into the 3rd period:

 

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins would get his first career playoff goal less than a minute later to put the Oilers within 2 of the Hawks:

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
