Blackhawks Vs. Penguins Score Update: Pittsburgh Extends Lead To 3-0 After Two Periods

Tuesday night was supposed to feature a competitive battle between two of the league's elite teams in the Chicago Blackhawks and Pittsburgh Penguins, but so far it's been a fairly lopsided affair as the Penguins lead 3-0 after two periods. Chicago has been one of the hottest teams in the league of late, winning five in a row and seven of its last eight, but the Blackhawks have struggled on the road against Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh got its second goal of the game just a couple minutes into the second period as James Neal scored his 19th of the season, and Tyler Kennedy followed it up later in the period with his fourth goal of the year. Evgeni Malkin hasn't scored a goal but continues to rack up points, as he's now assisted all three goals on the night. 

The Blackhawks are going into the third period on their way to a possible shutout, a rare event for one of the league's better offensive clubs. They were last shutout on Nov. 23 against San Jose, one of just three times that they've been unable to score a goal in a game. With the fifth-ranked scoring offense in the NHL, Chicago's probably hoping to catch fire in the third period and chip away at Pittsburgh's lead.
