We’re just about wrapped up with this Blackhawks season, albeit a little prematurely for their liking.
There are still topics to address; general manager Stan Bowman, coach Joel Quenneville and players will discuss those soon, most likely tomorrow. Until then, a few postseason numbers, some good and some bad, to review.
4 — Goals by Andrew Shaw (in six games), who led the Blackhawks in that category for the series.
4 — Combined goals for Artemi Panarin (2), Patrick Kane (1), Andrew Ladd (1) and Jonathan Toews (0) in the series.
19 on 205 — Goals allowed on shots seen by Corey Crawford, who finished the first round with a 2.54 goals-against average and .907 save percentage.
18 on 254 — Goals allowed on shots seen by Blues goaltender Brian Elliott (2.40 GAA, .929 save percentage).
6 — One-goal games played between the Blackhawks and Blues in their first-round series. Game 6 was the only game won by multiple goals (a Blackhawks 6-3 victory).
412:38 — Time, out of 452:11, that the Blues and Blackhawks were either tied or had one goal separating them during games in this series.*
2-3 — Blackhawks’ record in Game 7s under coach Joel Quenneville. They won vs. Detroit in 2013 (Western Conference semifinals) and at Anaheim in 2015 (Western Conference Final). They lost at Vancouver in 2011 (Western Conference quarterfinals), vs. Los Angeles in 2014 (Western Conference Final) and at St. Louis on Monday.
31:27 — Average time on ice for Duncan Keith, highest for any defenseman in the first round.
23 — Blocked shots, each, for Brent Seabrook and Niklas Hjalmarsson.
2 — Game-winning goals Troy Brouwer now has against his former team. The other one was in the 2015 Winter Classic, when Brouwer was with the Washington Capitals.*
