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.
The 24-year-old forward picked up three assists in the first period, helping the Hawks score four goals off 11 shots, then added two power-play goals to help give Chicago a 6-2 lead after the second period.
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.
