Andrew Shaw gets the puck at the face off dot and rips a wicked wrister past the glove of Dubnyk. Andrew Shaw commented about wanting to play better for the team and this was the perfect way to show it.
Happy birthday Marian Hossa! After an own goal/empty net debacle, the Blackhawks regrouped and and made sure to regain the lead on the two-man advantage. Duncan Keith sends Hossa a perfect pass and Hoss one-times a shot past the glove of Dubnyk.
Jonathan Toews dekes Dubnyk out of his jock on this beautiful play. The first line of Toews, Sharp, and Hossa has been a pleasure to watch all season long.
The Blackhawks extend their lead 5-3 – Brent Seabrook (6) Wrist shot – ASST: NONE
The NHL gave Brent Seabrook the credit for this goal. To me it looks like Shaw tips it but I couldn’t find a reverse angle to make it definitive. It looks like the Blackhawks stuck to the game plan of keeping things simple. Seabs fires this puck on net and it deflects off of something and goes in.
FINAL SCORE: Chicago Blackhawks 5 – Edmonton Oilers 3
