The Chicago Blackhawks came up with a third period goal from Jonathan Toews and held on for a 2-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres Sunday night. Patrick Kane also scored for the Blackhawks, who picked up a much-needed two points on the road.
First Period-Patrick Kane gave the hometown fans something to holler about in the fourth minute. Taking a pass from Patrick Sharp at the red line, Kane weaved into the Buffalo zone and fired the puck past the glove of Jhonas Enroth. With 3:12 elapsed, Chicago led 1-0.
Brandon Saad was called for a tripping penalty at the 4:39 mark. Soon after, it appeared that the Sabres had evened the score. Corey Crawford came out to play a loose puck well in front of the crease and was kept from getting rid of the puck by Tyler Ennis. Read more

Last night’s game started out almost laughably one-sided in the Hawks favor. Buffalo was unable to generate any type of consistency in any facet of the game. Fortunately, for the Sabres, Ryan Miller was spectacular. Fortunately, for the Hawks, so too was Corey Crawford.
1st period: The Blackhawks started the game with Brandon Saad on Jonathan Toews wing, along with Patrick Kane. This line, up until jumbled again, was dominant on most every shift they were on the ice for. One more interesting line change was Marcus Kruger playing second line center. Kruger looked good in the second line center position, ending the night winning 45% of his faceoffs taken. Read more
