The offense came to life rather quickly in the third period.

The offense that produced 14 goals in two games last week was not on the ice last Friday against Los Angeles. It was looking like the Hawks were about to go into one of those scoring slumps we have seen all season with only one goal through two periods.

Then the Hawks rattled off three goals in 83 seconds during the third period. Ryan Donato tied the game up at two with 9:21 left in the game.

Kevin Korchinski scored the game-winner a minute and some change later. Then Joey Anderson scored a few seconds later after the Sharks mishandled the faceoff.

Anderson's backhand goal was a brilliant display of just getting the puck to the net and seeing what happens as it was redirected off of a San Jose Sharks' defenseman.

After being quiet for two periods, Korchinski and Anderson's goals sent the place into a frenzy. Maybe that offensive stretch reminded everyone of the better days during the Stanley Cup runs of the previous decades.
