Blackhawks Win 3-2 On Viktor Stalberg Goal In Overtime

Chicago, IL (Sports Network) – Viktor Stalberg’s redirection of a Duncan Keith slapshot with 27.8 seconds remaining in overtime lifted the Chicago Blackhawks to a 3-2 victory over the Ducks, who saw their six-game win streak come to an end.

As time wound down, Keith corralled the puck at the left point and fired a shot toward the net. Stalberg and Dave Bolland were both stationed in front of the net, and Stalberg was able to get his stick on the puck and sneak it past Jonas Hiller for the win.

Patrick Kane and Marian Hossa also scored for the Blackhawks, who snapped a three-game losing streak. Corey Crawford made 24 saves in the victory.

Corey Perry scored both Anaheim goals, although the Ducks failed at a chance to match their longest win streak in franchise history. Hiller stopped 40- of-43 shots in defeat.

Chicago took the lead 3:37 into the game on Kane’s seventh goal of the year. Sharp took a slapshot from the right point, and the puck sailed wide as it pulled Hiller out of position. The disc took a fortunate bounce off the back boards right to Kane, who fired it into the empty net from the left circle.

The Ducks tied it up less than a minute later. The Blackhawks looked to move the puck up ice after a failed Anaheim rush, but the lone Ducks player backchecking was Jason Blake, who lifted the stick of a Chicago player, which sent the puck right to Perry. Perry skated in on net unchallenged and fired a wrister past Crawford at 4:34.

The score remained square until the 11:24 mark of the second, when the Blackhawks went ahead on the power play. Hossa took a shot from the right circle that was initially stopped by Hiller, but a second-effort backhand found its way into the net for a 2-1 lead.

Perry was able to tie the game again 3:36 into the third with a pinpoint wrister from the right side that hit the top left corner.

Chicago Blackhawks Vs. Anaheim Ducks: Hawks Look To Cool Off Hot Ducks

The Anaheim Ducks will be looking to tie a franchise record with their seventh straight win tonight against the Blackhawks at the United Center.

During their current six-game streak, they have won five games by a single goal and one other by two. Combine that with several blowout losses during October and the Ducks, tied for fourth-most points in the Western Conference with 21, have a negative goal differential (48 scored, 54 allowed).

Anaheim may also be without starting goaltender Jonas Hiller, who took a shot to his mask during practice and wound up in the hospital, where he got four stitches. If Hiller can't go, backup Curtis McIlhenny will start.

Meanwhile, the Blackhawks are still trying to find a winning combination and a way to hold leads, which they could not do last night in Nashville despite numerous power-play opportunities. The fact that the Hawks are now at full strength healthwise with the return of Dave Bolland last night should help them begin to get some consistency.

This is the first of four meetings between the Ducks and Blackhawks this year. Anaheim won three of four last year. Tonight's 6 p.m. game will be televised on WGN (Chicago only).
