Blackhawks 4-0 - Patrick Sharp (21) Backhand shot – ASST: Niklas Hjalmarsson (14), Jonathan Toews (23)
The Blackhawks would start the scoring quickly in the second period. Less then thirty seconds in, Patrick Sharp would complete his hat trick. The Toews, Sharp, and Hossa line were a force all game long.
Blackhawks 5-0 - Jonathan Toews (15) Wrist shot – ASST: Patrick Sharp (19)
Sharp breaks up a breakaway and then fires it down to Toews for a 2 on 1. Hossa keeps the defender Erik Johnson occupied which gives Toews all day to deke Giguere out of position.
Blackhawks 6-1 - Michal Handzus (4) Wrist shot – ASST: Patrick Kane (28), Kris Versteeg (14)
Patrick Kane’s scoring streak continues! Kane’s vision is mind bottling (blades of glory reference) and his pass is perfectly on Handzus’s tape. Blackhawks’ fans should be happy there was no Ryan Miller trades a few summers ago.
Blackhawks 7-1 - Kris Versteeg (8) Wrist shot – ASST: Duncan Keith (33), Michal Handzus (6)
Kris Versteeg had a number of great plays throughout this game. I was glad to see him finally hit the twine. Keith’s pass was a little off but the bounce went right to Steeger. This was a great statement game against a team that embarrassed them earlier in the year.
FINAL SCORE: Blackhawks 7 – Avs 2
