Petr Mrazek was outstanding in goal.

It almost looked like he would have had a shutout until MacKenzie Weegar beat him for a goal in the third period. Although, Mrazek felt he was interfered with.

Mrazek has been at his best at the United Center. He is 13-10-3 with a 2.48 goals-against-average and a .924 save percentage.

He has been particularly stingy against the Flames in three games this season. Mrazek is 2-1 with a 1.69 GAA and a .950 save percentage against Calgary.

Jones and Dickinson spotted him a 2-0 lead in the first period and Mrazek took care of the rest. The Hawks' offensive attack went away in the final two periods as the Flames outshot Chicago 25-12. The blueliners helped Mrazek as Calgary only had four high-danger chances over the final two periods.

Kevin Korchinski was the only defenseman who graded out negatively and even then, it was not like he was terrible.

The Blackhawks have won two straight games, but it is not considered a win streak until they hit three consecutive victories which is something they have not done all season.
