Blackhawks Shutout Panthers
The Chicago Blackhawks prevented the Florida Panthers from scoring a single goal Wednesday. Earlier this month, the Blackhawks struggled against the Panthers. Four Hawks scored against Florida, but the goals didn’t start until the second period.
Corey Crawford made 23 saves for his fourth shutout of the season, and Brent Seabrook and Patrick Kane had a goal and assist each to lead the Chicago Blackhawks to a 4-0 win over the Florida Panthers on Wednesday night.
Viktor Stalberg and Tomas Kopecky also scored for Chicago, which got two assists each from Jonathan Toews and Duncan Keith. Crawford, who made his 18th straight start, had to block only a few tough chances to post his fifth NHL shutout.
Tomas Vokoun stopped 27 shots, but the Panthers were shut out for the second straight night. Florida opened a season-high, five-game road trip with a 1-0 loss at New York to the Rangers on Tuesday.
