Darling made 47 saves, including all eight he faced on the power play, but it wasn't enough as the Avalanche came from behind to win in overtime Tuesday, 4-3.
Darling still finished with a .922 save percentage in a game that meant little to the Blackhawks after clinching the conference title and allowed them to sit Duncan Keith. What should be concerning, however, is their lack of finish -- the Blackhawks, a Cup contender, blew a 3-0 lead to one of the worst teams ever in the cap era. Darling will likely start in one of the two games remaining, but will return to his usual backup role once the playoffs start. He's been outstanding this season, setting career highs in appearances (31), wins (18), shutouts (2) and saves (763). He's an impending free agent, and he's going to draw a lot of interest. If he lands a job as a No. 1, his fantasy value gets a significant bump.
