CHICAGO – When the Chicago Blackhawks take the ice at United Center on Tuesday for Game 4 of their Western Conference First Round series against the Nashville Predators (9:30 p.m. ET: NBCSN, SN, TVA Sports 3, FS-TN, CSN-CH), rookie goalie Scott Darling will get his second straight start.
Darling, 26, earned the nod from coach Joel Quenneville with a 35-save performance in Game 3, when he played over Corey Crawford and won his first career start in the Stanley Cup Playoffs to help the Blackhawks take a 2-1 lead in the best-of-7 series.
"I've been working hard all year with the goalie coaches and just trying to be ready to go in case I ever got a moment like this," Darling said Monday. "Now I'm just trying to make the most of it."
