Blackhawks pull out shoot out win over Oilers

The Blackhawks have improved to 3-1-0 without Patrick Kane (broken clavicle) in their lineup. But they sure aren't making it easy on themselves along the way.

While they won 2-1 in the shootout tonight, they were lucky to get to overtime. They allowed the Oilers 47 SOG (+20 attempts blocked/9 missed shots) - 18 in the first period alone - while only managing 39 SOG (+22/17) of their own. Corey Crawford has gone 3-0-0 in his last three starts, including a shut out, with a .968 sv%: Chicago's challenges aren't on his shoulders. Ben Scrivens took the loss for the Oilers despite an excellent performance.

Derek Roy had the first goal of the game with 4:45 left...

Hawks defeat Devils 3-1

The Hawks had a couple of different jersey numbers on the ice 38 and 26 that gave them a slightly different look both on the front and back ends of the lineup.

Making his NHL debut was Illinois’ own Ryan Hartman who was playing the wing on the fourth and third lines. He made a huge first impression in his first shift on the ice when he made a huge mid ice hit against Devils’ Zubrus who probably out weights Hartman by 30 -40 lbs.

Ryan Hartman was very physical and noticeable throughout the game adding some grit along with skill. Welcome to the Blackhawks, Ryan here is to many more appearances at the United Center.

Also noticeable was defenseman Kyle Cumiskey, ...
