Patrick Sharp Leads Blackhawks' Seven-Goal Outburst That Beats Canucks 7-2

It didn’t seem possible, the way the Blackhawks had been stopped from scoring over the first three games of their series with the Canucks.

But after Vancouver tied the game 1-1 midway through the first period, it was a tightly-played tie until about five minutes were gone in the second, where the Hawks scored twice within 17 seconds to take a 3-1 lead which they never relinquished. On the first of those two quick goals, scored by Brian Campbell, goalie Corey Crawford got a rare assist. Crawford also made 21 saves Tuesday night.

In all, the seven goals were scored by Patrick Sharp (who had two), Bryan Bickell, Michael Frolik, Duncan Keith, Dave Bolland and the aforementioned goal by Campbell. It was the first time the Blackhawks had scored seven goals in a game since Feb. 1 against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

There is still, obviously, more work to be done. Every game is an elimination game. The series travels back to Vancouver for Game 5 on Thursday; it’ll start at 9 p.m. CDT and be televised on CSN Chicago and Versus.
