It’s a contrast of styles between the Blackhawks and Ducks, who are on a playoff collision course.
Chicago and Anaheim had the NHL’s two best records and a combined 15 Olympians on the ice at Honda Center. Before all that world-class talent heads to Sochi this weekend, the Blackhawks demonstrated why they’re still the team to beat when the NHL gets back to work in three short weeks.
Ryan Getzlaf set up Bobby Ryan’s tying goal and Teemu Selanne’s tiebreaker 1:04 apart in the waning minutes, and the Ducks rallied for a 4-2 victory over Chicago in a meeting of the NHL’s top two teams.
The Blackhawks faced the Ducks Sunday and Anaheim kept the pressure on. The Ducks scored first and limited Chicago to just one goal, giving the Blackhawks their third straight loss.
