NHL Stanley Cup 2015 Game 5, Blackhawks vs. Lightning: scores, highlights, who won the game last night

Chicago Blackhawks seem to have taken a huge lead over Tampa Bay Lightning by beating them in an incredibly ferocious game last night. The two sides looked in great form and till the very last moment there was a sort of hope that Tampa Bay Lightning will hit an equalizer any moment, but that never happened and they conceded a match that should have given the Lightning a great chance to take the lead and move forward.

But everything is not lost as yet and if Tampa Bay Lightning are able to do well in the next match they will be even once again and the last and seventh match will be deciding factor. Nonetheless Chicago Blackhawks will never allow this to happen and will do their best to come up with the deciding win in the sixth match itself.

The Blackhawks’ 2-1 win in the Game 5 of the 2015 Stanley Cup final at Amalie Arena on Saturday night was thrilling indeed. The team seems to be supremely impressed by the way Antoine Vermette who scored the winner on a rebound in the third period. Corey Crawford stopped 31 of the 32 shots he faced, allowing the Blackhawks to win the match and create a chance for them to lift the Cup on home ice at United Center for the first time.

Chicago BlackhawksWhile talking about the impressive win Blackhawks defenceman Niklas Hjalmarsson said, “You just have to find a way to calm down and just be excited to play in front of our own crowd and having the possibility to do something extremely special”. Nikita Kucherov was unable to play for the full length of Game 5 as he got injured. Goaltender Ben Bishop played despite injury. The goalie committed a serious mistake by handing Patrick Sharp a goal when he left his net and collided with Victor Hedman but finished with 27 saves.

After talking of the match outcome a disappointed Bishop said, “It’s just unfortunate…It’s the first time it happened. Bad time to happen.” “We made a couple more mistakes than they did and they capitalized on their chances”. Kucherov went off the ice looking in pain. Lightning coach Jon Cooper said he knew nothing about Kucherov’s status but added that the forward will be evaluated. “It just wasn’t our day,” Tampa Bay defenceman Anton Stralman said. “The series is not over.”
