Brendan Morrison may have not been able to contribute to the Chicago Blackhawks during the regular season, but it’s the theatrics of playoffs hockey that catapults one man’s worth.
Morrison reconnected with the veteran within with a brilliant third period goal.
In 59 playoff games, he has nine goals and 21 assists. Three of his goals have been on the power play while he has an overall 9.2 percent shooting average. His regular season shooting percentage average is 12.4 percent.
Morrison registered just 9:32 minutes on ice for Game 4. His snipe from afar was more-or-less, a lucky one. However, if Mike Smith didn’t stop it, there would have been a great rebound opportunity.
Morrison should be expected to be considered in Game 5. His numbers from the regular season to playoffs aren’t that bad, considering the heightened competition in the postseason.
If anything, with Brandon Saad in for Marian Hossa, having a veteran like Morrison on the ice isn’t a bad thing.
