Blackhawks Vs. Flames Recap: Chicago Coasts To 4-1 Victory

Make it two in a row for the Blackhawks. Chicago followed up their 6-3 defeat of the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday night with a 4-1 victory over the Calgary Flames on Friday night. The Blackhawks (10-4-3) took a 2-0 lead into the second quarter, but that was cut in half when Olli Jokinen lit the lamp for the Flames (6-8-1) with the third period a little more than halfway over. But the Flames wouldn't get any closer, as the Blackhawks added goals from Viktor Stalberg and Patrick Kane, whose sixth goal of the season came on an empty net with only four seconds left in the game.

The Blackhawks will take Saturday off before hosting the Edmonton Oilers at home on Sunday night. The match up between the Central and Northwest Division leaders will be the teams' first of the season.

Blackhawks Vs. Flames Score Update: Hawks Add Another Goal, Up 2-0 After Two

The Blackhawks came into Friday night's game having converted an astoundingly low 5% of their power plays. So it was likely a big weight off their shoulders when defenseman Brent Seabrook connected on a power play goal in the second period against the Calgary Flames. The goal is Seabrook's first of the season, and it came on assists by Marian Hossa and Patrick Sharp, who tallied his second point of the night.

Chicago outshot Calgary by five in the second period, leaving the scoring challenged Flames in a deeper hole going into the third period. If the Blackhawks can hold on for the win tonight, they'll increase their division lead over the second place (and idle) Nashville Predators to five points.

Blackhawks Vs. Flames Score Update: Blackhawks Take Early 1-0 Lead

Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith scored his first goal of the season to give the Blackhawks an early lead in Friday night's cross-division battle vs. the lowly Calgary Flames. Keith's goal, which came with a bit over 12 minutes to go in the first period, was assisted by Dan Carcillo and Patrick Sharp. The teams combined for 13 shots in the period, though Chicago goalie Ray Emery was able to stop all of Calgary's attempts on net.

A one goal deficit is arguably already a mountain to climb for the Flames, who are third to last in the NHL with only 30 goals on the season. Likewise, Flames leading scorer Rene Borque was held without a shot on net in the first.
