Nick Leddy scored early in the opening period on a shot Miikka Kiprusoff should have saved. The Flames netminder is having a rough season but Tuesday night he kept his club in the contest. The Hawks second goal came off of a Brent Seabrook shot which was deflected and Kiprusoff couldn’t be faulted.
Patrick Kane had the puck on his stick a lot and was credited with two assists. Kane keeps plugging away and is having his finest season as a Blackhawk. Currently Kane is ranked fifth in scoring with 41 points, only two behind second place Steven Stamkos.
The Hawks controlled the puck most of the game and fired 35 shots on goal. Including 12 blocks and seven misses, Chicago got off 54 shots.
The Blackhawks power play was held scoreless in four attempts. Since Marian Hossa has been hurt the Hawks have scored only one power play goal.
