It was all Blackhawks Tuesday night as they took on the Calgary Flames in Chicago. The leaders of the Western Conference ended a two-game losing streak beating the Flames 2-0. In the second of back-to-back games, back-up goalie, Ray Emery, got the call getting the shutout and making 16 saves.
The Blackhawks first struck in the 1st period with defenseman, Nick Leddy, registering his 5th goal of the season at 7:11. Michal Rozsival and Patrick Kane would be credited with assists.The only other goal was tallied by defenseman, Brent Seabrook, at 17:48 in the 2nd period, making it his 6th of the season. Kane also added his 2nd assist of the game on the goal.
The Blackhawks outshot the Flames 16-3 in the second period and 35-16 throughout the game. The win improves the Hawks’ record to 25-4-3 and increases their point lead in the West to 5. Emery’s perfect record was also advanced to 12-0-0 with the win. The Hawks will get two days to rest before taking on the Anaheim Ducks (2nd in the West) on Friday at the United Center. The Hawks could possibly have Marian Hossa back for the match-up but will still be without Patrick Sharp.
