Dominik Kubalik Breaks Blackhawks Rookie Record for Points in a Playoff Game

Blackhawks rookie Dominik Kubalik recorded five points within the first two periods of Saturday's Game 1 of the Blackhawks-Oilers Stanley Cup Qualifiers in Edmonton. The feat broke Steve Larmer's record for most points by a Hawks rookie in a playoff game. Larmer had four points (one goal, three assists) in Game 2 of the 1983 Division Finals. 

Kubalik also became the first player to record five points in his postseason debut in NHL history.

Kubalik finished the regular season with 46 points (30 goals, 16 assists) which made him a finalist for this year's Calder Trophy, awarded to the NHL's top rookie.
