The Chicago Blackhawks completed a sweep of a back-to-back weekend Sunday. The Hawks bested the Edmonton Oilers 5-4 in a see-saw affair that saw Chicago’s depth prevail with some big goals from the lower lines.
The win, coupled with a 5-2 decision over Dallas on Saturday night, is Chicago’s fifth in the last six games. Here’s a look at a four-point weekend.
Saturday vs Stars-Though the Hawks were visiting Dallas, it was the Chicago stars that came out to shine in a 5-2 victory.
First Period-Dallas opened the scoring in the seventh minute after Shawn Horcoff gained entrance to the Blackhawks zone. Horcoff dropped the puck off to Jordie Benn just inside the blue line. Benn sent the puck to Trevor Daley, who fired on the Chicago net, where Horcoff and Cody Eakin were there to attack. Eakin backhanded the loose puck past Corey Crawford and gave the Stars a 1-0 lead.
