Good Morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks took a tight 3rd period contest and turned it into a blowout on Tuesday night, and in return they won their third straight game.
The Chicago Blackhawks were looking to build on some good things on Tuesday night, and they did just that as their dreaded bug a boo the penalty kill had it’s second straight perfect game.
The ironic part of the Chicago Blackhawks 5-1 victory is that the only goal they gave up on the night was a special teams goal, but at least it wasn’t on the penalty kill. The Calgary Flames were able to tie things up on a broken stick by Duncan Keith that led to a 2 on 1 goal that was scored by former Blackhawks Michael Frolik.
The Chicago Blackhawks first three goals were pretty impressive to be quite honest. The first goal was just your normal 1 on 3 Patrick Kane dangling with the puck and beating Brian Elliott. Then Kane did a perfect slap pass to Artem Anisimov for the go ahead goal.
The most impressive goal on the night for me though had to be Tyler Motte‘s impression of Marian Hossa and put on an awesome power move to get to the net and score and pretty much put the game out of reach.
The Chicago Blackhawks special teams has been the difference in this 3 game winning streak with the penalty kill stopping things and the power play getting enough pucks into the back of the net to get the Hawks some leads. We will see if this is the Blackhawks getting back to normal or if this just a short break from the madness. I vote for normal.
