"I had my chances throughout the season, and it finally happened tonight," Saad told the media after the game. "It's pretty exciting."
Teammate Patrick Kane had faith that the 20-year-old rookie would reach that milestone soon enough.
"It was a long time coming for him," Kane said. "He played great again tonight. He's fast and gets a lot of chances, especially playing with Johnny [Toews] and [Marian] Hossa. He's been a great addition and I’m sure we’ll see many more from him. Everyone in here’s happy for him.”
