Blackhawks Vs. Penguins Final Score: Comeback Falls Short, Chicago Loses 3-2

The Chicago Blackhawks did come up with a pretty impressive comeback in the third period of Tuesday night's game, but the Pittsburgh Penguins walked away with a 3-2 victory in a battle of NHL elites. The Blackhawks trailed 3-0 going into the final period but made a run to make things interesting late before ultimately being unable to complete the comeback.

Just 49 seconds in the third period, Jonathan Toews did what the Blackhawks couldn't do in the first two periods by getting the puck past Penguins goalie Marc Andre Fleury. And just a few minutes later, Victor Stalberg did the same for Chicago, cutting Pittsburgh's lead to just 3-2 with a good deal of time remaining. The Blackhawks weren't able to get that final goal on the scoreboard to push things into overtime, though, ending their five-game winning streak.

Chicago's first loss since Dec. 5 drops it to 21-9-4 on the year, still good for first place in the Central Division. Pittsburgh is up to 19-11-4 this season, pushing them into a tie for second place in the Atlantic Division with the New York Rangers.
