The Chicago Blackhawks got up early Sunday morning to close out their road trip. The early bird gets the worm, but Chicago was happy with two points over the St. Louis Blues.
The Hawks took advantage of a power play goal in the third period to break a tie game against St. Louis. Marian Hossa wound up the hero as Chicago prevailed 4-2.
First Period-The Blues made hay in the Chicago zone early, with a busy Corey Crawford sending several attempts to the corners.
The Hawks drew first blood on their first real opportunity in the fifth minute. Daniel Carcillo got the puck to Marcus Kruger coming out of the defensive zone. Kruger led Carcillo on an odd man rush, scoring when his shot from the right circle got the best of Brian Elliot. Chicago took a 1-0 advantage at the 4:38 mark.
