The Chicago Blackhawks skated into Anaheim Friday afternoon and took advantage of post-Thanksgiving bargains against a depleted Ducks defense. Chicago dominated most of the action on the way to a 4-1 victory.
With the win, Chicago has won four out of the first five games of its annual November road jaunt. The Hawks were in control throughout the matinee despite a game effort by Anaheim goalie Frederick Andersen.
First Period-The Hawks got their first shot on goal via Brad Richards late in the fourth minute. That attempt, gloved by Frederick Andersen, was followed by some increased offensive pressure on Chicago’s part. Anaheim put together a nice shift in the Hawks zone in the eighth minute, though Chicago eventually cleared the puck and posted the first tally of the contest.
