Blackhawks Post-game One-timers — Jan. 24 vs. Vancouver Canucks


The Chicago Blackhawks suffered a road loss at the hands of the Vancouver Canucks 5–2 on Tuesday night. The Hawks’ offensive output was minimal, as they mustered a mere 14 shots on the evening, making life easy on former Chicago goalie Collin Delia. In contrast, Petr Mrazek was under siege all night, making 43 saves against the rejuvenated Canucks attack.

— Patrick Kane scored the lone goal of the first period, firing a wrist shot from just inside the blue line, beating Delia for a 1–0 lead.

— In the second period, Andrei Kuzmenko would tie the game just over seven minutes into the frame.

— The Hawks would regain the lead when Sam Lafferty’s wrist shot from the far right eluded Delia to make it 2–1.

— Kuzmenko would tie the game with a nifty deflection after a feeble turnover by Seth Jones.

— Dakota Joshua put the Canucks up to stay making it 3–2 just past the halfway marker of the third period.

— Sheldon Dries would add another seconds later and Bo Horvat would ice it with an empty-net goal to seal the 5–2 win.

The Blackhawks are back at it in Alberta on Thursday against the Calgary Flames. Puck drop is scheduled for 9 p.m. CST.
