Blackhawks wrap up 2019 preseason with win over Eisbaren Berlin


The Blackhawks wrapped up preseason play with a 3-1 win over Eisbaren Berlin in front of 14,200 fans at Mercedes-Benz Arena on Sunday. It was their first exhibition game in Europe since Sept. 29, 2009 — exactly 10 years ago — when they battled the ZSC Lions in Switzerland and lost 2-1.

Jonathan Toews, Alex Nylander and David Kampf (empty-netter) each scored for the Blackhawks while Patrick Kane recorded two assists in the victory. 

Corey Crawford started the game and was perfect. Lehner, as planned, took over at the midway mark of the second period and allowed only one goal. 

The Blackhawks finished the preseason with a 3-4-0 record, which includes the 8-2 loss to the Boston Bruins on Saturday in the split-squad game that was played by the Rockford IceHogs.

Next up: Opening Day on Friday in Prague, where the Blackhawks will take on the Philadelphia Flyers.
