SAVE OF THE WEEKEND
Antti Raanta comes up huge for the Blackhawks by making two stops in a row short handed. The Blackhawks were quick to return the favor by making sure the puck stayed out of the net.

Toews works his magic along the boards and feeds Hossa a perfect pass. Hossa makes no mistake while short handed and chips the puck in past Scrivens.
2-0 – Kris Versteeg (6) Wrist shot – ASST: Patrick Kane (26), Brent Seabrook (20). GIF by Joe Kremel of BlackhawkUp.com feed from the NHL & WGN
Versteeg just stares at Handzus nearly the entire time before for finally looking up to shoot. It really looks like Scribbles falls for that as he looks a little surprised.
3-0 – PPG – Patrick Sharp (16) Wrist shot – ASST: Jonathan Toews (19), Duncan Keith (28). GIF by Joe Kremel of BlackhawkUp.com feed from the NHL & WGN
The Blackhawks have been moving the puck extremely well on the power play in the past 6 games. The Hawks move away from Sharp shooting from the blue line and I’m happy to see that. You can’t rely on only one play, so good on the Blackhawks for not relying on it too much.
FINAL SCORE: Blackhawks 3 – Kings 1
