Blackhawks 1-0  –  Brandon Saad (14) Wrist shot – ASST: Bryan Bickell (2), Duncan Keith (36)

Saad comes through for the Blackhawks by scoring  what would end up being the game winning goal in the first period.  It was a broken play that sort of fixed itself in the process.  Bickell’s pass to Saad was broken up, but Saad would steal it back all in one motion and put the puck past the NHL’s hottest goaltender Martin Jones.

Brown skates through four Blackhawks like they weren’t even moving and drives the net hard.  After getting hooked Brown does a good job to avoid as Raanta the best he can.  Raanta showed a lot of focus by making sure that puck didn’t cross the line as Brown came charging in.  Unfortunately, Raanta would have to make another save as Brown would be awarded a Penalty shot.
