The two wins staved off panic for now, but the 5-0 dusting in Dallas on Saturday wasn’t exactly the way they wanted to end the week, especially with pulling starting goalie Joonas Korpisalo about 49 minutes in. His replacement: Finnish rookie Veini Vehvilainen, who joins Tua Tagovailoa and Eetu Luostarinen atop our Misery Index vowel leaderboard at eight apiece. (That’s pronounced “VAY-nee veh-vih-LIGH-nehn,” by the way, though considering he let in a fairly soft goal in his 10:43 of work, you may not need to remember that for too long.)
The Blackhawks recorded only eight shots on goal through the first 43 minutes of play but scored on four of those shots to take a 4-0 lead into the third period. Meanwhile, the Stars didn't score their first goal until their 26th shot and, by that point, the game was fairly out of reach.
