Too Little Too Late For Blackhawks
Despite two goals in the second period and an onslaught of shots in the third, the Chicago Blackhawks were unable to come back from a three goal deficit.
The Blackhawks eight game winning streak was ended in a 3-2 loss to the Florida Panthers.
A sloppy and low energy first period by the Blackhawks led to three unanswered goals by the Panthers. From that point on it was a much different hockey game.
Blackhawks starting goalie Corey Crawford was pulled after the first 20 minutes, he faced eight shots and only stopped five. The veteran Marty Turco was perfect through the final two periods, only facing seven shots.
The Blackhawks turned up the intensity in the second period, scoring goals by Patrick Kane and Marian Hossa within three minutes of each other. But those two goals would prove to be too little too late as the Blackhawks were unable to find a third goal despite 29 shots over the final two periods.
