Never mind that bit in the previous update about the struggling power play; Chicago broke through in the second period with not one but two power play goals and the floodgates opened on Columbus. Andrew Brunette scored less than 90 seconds into the period, converting the power play that the Blackhawks carried over from the first period. Steve Montador scored the other power play goal near the midpoint of the period.
Patrick Kane scored a backbreaking goal on a breakaway with about a minute left in the second to finish off the scoring. The Blackhawks already have 30 shots on net.
Corey Crawford has stopped 18 of 19 Columbus shots.
