Blackhawks Vs. Panthers: Kane Goal Puts Chicago Up 3-0

A bit of a tough year for Patrick Kane continued to get slightly better on Friday night, as the diminutive Chicago Blackhawks winger put his team up 3-0 over the Florida Panthers midway through the second period. Kane's unassisted goal, which came 13:05 in the second, was number on 11 on the season.

For their part, the Panthers have been able to put 15 shots on net so far, but all have been turned away by Blackhawks goalie Ray Emery, who is keeping his stellar season rolling. Ex-Blackhawk defenseman Brian Campbell has been the most active Panther tonight, putting four shots on net in just over 15 minutes of ice time. Fellow ex-Hawk Tomas Fleischmann has put one shot on goal tonight, and has been on the ice for two of Chicago's three goals.

Blackhawks Vs. Panthers: Hawks Up 2-0 After One

The 30 minute delay of tonight's game apparently did little to throw the Chicago Blackhawks off any rhythm, as the team used two goals late in the first period to take an early commanding lead over the Florida Panthers. The scores came from captain Jonathan Towes, who netted the puck for the 27th time of the year on assists from Patrick Kane and Viktor Stalberg, and Duncan Keith, who's third goal of the season came on the power play with help from Marian Hossa and Nick Leddy.

The Kieth goal came after Florida's Keaton Ellerby got sent to the box for boarding Chicago's Andrew Sharp, which was one of three penalties racked up by the Panthers in the first.
