The Chicago Blackhawks seemed a step behind the streaking Dallas Stars much of Sunday night before finding a way to come out ahead. Patrick Sharp scored 1:17 into overtime to give Chicago a 5-4 win that snapped the Stars’ four-game winning streak.
Patrick Sharp scored yet another goal against the Dallas Stars. The Chicago forward figured it made a difference only because of goalie Corey Crawford.
Marian Hossa had a power-play goal and an assist on his 35th birthday, and the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Edmonton Oilers 5-3 on Sunday night to end a three-game losing streak.
The Edmonton Oilers didn’t just break their four-game losing streak, they smashed it to pieces. Taylor Hall had a hat trick, Jordan Eberle had a goal and three assists, and rookie Ryan Nugent-Hopkins set up five goals for the Oilers, who ended their skid in a big way with a 9-2 rout of the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday night.
Marian Hossa wasn’t able to help the Blackhawks Friday night due to his injury and Marty Turco was replaced early as he had a disappointing performance.
