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.
Here’s a prediction: Even though the Chicago Blackhawks will have the shortest offseason in NHL history – thanks to the lockout and the late end of the Stanley Cup Final – they will not suffer from the hangover this time around.
Blackhawks center Jonathan Toews was named the NHL’s Third Star of the Week Monday after scoring foul goals and recording two assists in four games last week.
