GIF Blackhawks' Highlights: Smith & Versteeg Score

Versteeg played one of his more noticeable games since coming back to the Blackhawks last night.  He had some bad turnovers to go along with his generally good play, but I feel it’s a step in the right direction for him.  He was one of the better forwards throughout the game, and if he can keep that up the Hawks will get out of their skid.  Versteeg got the puck in deep and dropped it back to Patrick Kane who inadvertently drop passed it to Ben Smith.  Ben Smith would snap one home to tie the game up at one.

The Blackhawks didn’t have much going for them on the power play.  In the final 15 seconds of the PP, Marian Hossa would get the puck to the front of the net and Kris Versteeg would knock in his own rebound to tie the game once again.
