Despite a slow and sloppy start to last night’s game against the Dallas Stars, the Chicago Blackhawks were able to turn it around in the second half of the game, eventually winning 6-3. Dallas got it going early, scoring the first goal and outshooting Chicago 10-1 at one point. Brenden Morrow got the lone first period goal for the Stars at the 7:37 mark. The Blackhawks were able to tie it up at the end of the first on a wrist shot by Patrick Kane.
The Blackhawks would play a more involved and intense game in the second period. They took their first lead of the night on Ben Eager’s second period goal assisted by Dave Bolland. A Stars’ power play goal by Mike Modano would even the score at 2 apiece just one minute later. Near the end of the second period, Chicago rookie Kris Versteeg broke a 3-3 tie with a power play goal. Chicago would hang on to this lead for good adding two goals in the third period from Martin Havlat and Patrick Kane.
The Blackhawks will play their next four on the road before returning to the United Center on 12/3 to host the Anaheim Ducks. Chicago Blackhawks tickets are available for all 2008-2009 games now.
