NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Kirby Dach was a young man with a plan before his first NHL shootout attempt.
Lehner is 1 of NHL's best goalies, but 1 of worst at shootouts. Is there a way to fix that?
The good news is there are no shootouts in the playoffs. The bad news? If the Blackhawks can’t win some shootouts during the season, the playoffs won’t be an issue.There are other reasons the Hawks will have to scratch and claw for a spot in the postseason, but getting an extra point in the standings from winning a shootout would help considerably.This season, the Hawks have played in three shootouts and lost all of them, the equivalent of losing 1½ games in the standings.Don’t think that’s a big deal? It is.

The third overall pick in this year's draft roofed a shot in the fifth round to lift the Chicago Blackhawks over the New Jersey Devils 2-1 Friday night.
“I had three moves in my head," the 18-year-old said. “Whatever the goalie bites on, I move to that side. I’ve had a couple of shootouts in junior, and it worked there so I just went back to that. It went it. That was nice."
Dach didn't know he was going to participate in the shootout until the coaching staff sent him out to face Mackenzie Blackwood, who had stopped Alex DeBrincat and Dylan Strome in the third and fourth rounds.
“You get to see what he’s opening up to," Dach said of watching the others. “I got to see both goals and stopped shots, so that helps me a lot. At the same time, it’s a whole different ballgame once you step out there. It kind of goes out of your head and you’re just focused on scoring.”
Stars look to equal franchise record as Knights visit

Chicago, which beat Boston in overtime Thursday, won its second game in two nights and its first shootout in four attempts this season.
“Traditionally this group has been outstanding in shootouts," Blackhawks coach Jeremy Colliton said. “To be 0-3 was probably untreaded territory for them..”
The coach also liked Dach's attitude.
“He wants the ball. He wants the goals," Colliton said. “Those are the type of guys you want to use in those situations because they want to be in that spot, and they are confident and that’s what you need to score. He came through for the team and that was big.”
Corey Crawford preserved the victory by stopping Jack Hughes on the final shootout attempt to cap a night where he won his 250th game. He had 29 saves.
DeBrincat scored in the second period for Chicago, and Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane also connected in the shootout.

Nasreddine like the performance.
“We're looking for it taking a step in the right direction," he said. “Overall I thought the first period was good for us. We played the right way and second period, early on OK, but the game got away from us and third was 50-50. I'll take the effort, but would have been nice to get the two points."
Hughes, the top pick in this year's draft, returned to the lineup after missing three games with a lower body injury. Nico Hischier, the No. 1 overall pick in 2017, missed the game with an illness.
The teams were tied at 1 after two periods with both getting power-play goals.
