The Chicago Blackhawks saw their four-game winning streak come to an end Thursday night in the United Center. Forty minutes of defensive dominance gave way to an opportunistic Dallas Stars club that outworked the Blackhawks in the final ten minutes and stunned the home team by a score of 3-1.
Rookie goalie Richard Bachman got the start for the Stars and proved to be the difference, keeping his team in the contest with 26 saves and allowing Dallas to snatch two points from the Blackhawks.
Neither team generated a lot of scoring chances in the opening period. The ‘Hawks continued to play well in their own zone, but only outshot the Stars 6-5.
