Niklas Hjalmarsson is very angry when his team gives up a goal

It's not that bad, Niklas, you're still going back to the playoffs.

The Chicago Blackhawks don't give up many goals when Niklas Hjalmarsson is on the ice. Based on his reaction to Charlie Coyle's first period goal on Thursday, the veteran defenseman does not take it very well when they do. And his stick has to suffer the consequences.


Stupid stick.

Sure, the Blackhawks have hit a bit of a slump over the past couple of weeks and are without their two best players, Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews, but that seems like it's, I don't know, a bit of an overreaction.
