Hawks squander 2-goal lead, prevail 3-2 in the shootout at Florida

By Brad Vandenberk

It’s the time of year when the Blackhawks players, and coaching staff, invite their mothers to enjoy the sun, sights and sounds that Florida has to offer.  And why not throw a few road games in there while we’re at it.  First stop Florida, where many of the former Blackhawks now reside playing with the Panthers.

The Hawks wanted to continue their dominate play against Eastern conference teams and gain some much needed points in the Central division.  With a 5-0-1 record against the east side, and the Panthers starting off with an abysmal 3-6 record, this game was ripe for the picking.

Bruins top Hawks 3-2 in the shootout

By Brad Gardner

The Blackhawks entered Saturday’s tilt with Boston all too aware of what the Bruins’ struggling offense has experienced in the early stages of their Stanley Cup defense. Despite Boston’s slow start to the season, the marquee match-up between the league’s last two champions did not disappoint. Both teams carried play for stretches as they battled through 65 minutes, but it was Boston that eventually came away with two points in the shootout.

The squads traded chances in the early-going. Milan Lucic had several scoring opportunities on his own in the first period, the first one redirected high by the stick of Jonathan Toews and later a couple heavy shots on the rush that Corey Crawford was able to control. Patrick Kane’s line continued to create offense despite a new face in Viktor Stalberg on the right wing for an injured Marian Hossa. Their best chance came after Stalberg shielded the puck and passed to Kane, who drove unimpeded to the net but was robbed by the glove of Tim Thomas.
