Top-grade Freudian slip from Blackhawks reporter

The Chicago Blackhawks scored a lot during the regular season. Only the Pittsburgh Penguins had more goals in 48 games. But while doing a live hit outside of Chicago's dressing room prior to Tuesday night's playoff opener, CSN reporter Susannah Collins accidentally suggested that the 'Hawks have been doing a lot of the other kind of scoring, as well. 

Collins poked fun at herself while apologizing afterwards on Twitter, adding that she'd do her best to avoid risking another slip-up by mentioning one particularly dangerously-named member of the Minnesota Wild…

Unfortunately for Collins, that won't be possible because Cal Clutterbuck scored the first goal of the series less than five minutes into the first period of Tuesday night's game.
