Blackhawks Vs. Panthers Score Update: Hawks Still Leading, 2-1 After Two Periods

The Chicago Blackhawks were up by one goal after the first period and they're still up by one after the second, but both teams scored one goal apiece in the second period. The Blackhawks score in the first period to put them up 1-0 over the Florida Panthers on the road while another goal in the second made it 2-0, but a late-period goal by Florida cut the lead to 2-1.

Chicago's Marian Hossa scored his sixth goal of the season less than five minutes into the second period to put Chicago up 2-0, and it looked like they could be on their way to a decisive victory. But Florida managed to keep them off the scoreboard for the remainder of the period, and Stephen Weiss was able to put it in the back of the net to cut Chicago's lead in half.

The Blackhawks haven't been great on the road this season, but they're one period from bumping themselves above .500 away from the United Center this season.
