Chicago Blackhawks Grab Point But Fall To Canucks In OT

By Zachary Raderstorf

Chicago- well, it looked pretty at times but for the most part it was awful. The pace of the game was better than its been in some time, although it wasn’t dictated by the Chicago Blackhawks… As most may have come accustomed to. To make a long and redundant story short – there were turnovers and turnovers and Crawford and Crawford and turnovers and Crawford and it ended 0-0.

As one would hope after twenty minutes of lunacy… It continued, but in a blessing from the hockey gods as the puck found the back of the net from the touch of Patrick Kane himself. As quickly as the Hawks took the lead, the Canucks erased it and it was as if nothing had happened all along. As the minutes ticked on goals would be added by Vey, Horvat, and Kassian to end the frame 3-1.

It would take thirteen minutes for the game to get wild – none other than Marian Hossa to get the madhouse rocking on a school night!? His power play goal brought the Hawks back to within one but yet again, the Canucks erased it with a goal from Daniel Sedin less than three minutes later.

Any points seemed all but lost until Radim Vrbata was called for roughing on Andrew Shaw – Duncan Keith converting to bring the Hawks back within one. And of course, none other than Hossa himself, with his sixth goal in three games, tied the game after making a power move to the net and beating Lack through the five hole.

The game would need OT and another goal from Daniel Sedin would secure the second point for the Canucks. There was positive things from this evening and many that were worrisome. Regardless, the Hawks have tallied a point in their last four games and as opposed to slumping – they just seem to be waiting… Waiting for the “go-head” to hit the gas.
