Blues Vs. Blackhawks Score Update: Chicago Wins 3-1 After Dominant Third Period

The Chicago Blackhawks scored three goals in the third period en route to a stunning 3-1 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Sunday afternoon. After allowing the Blues to score a goal in the first period, the Blackhawks trailed for most of the game until the offense came alive in the final 15 minutes.

For most of the game, Chicago struggled offensively, mustering just 13 shots on goal during the game's first two periods. Blues goaltender Brian Elliott had little trouble stopping the Blackhawks for that span, but the wheels came off for St. Louis as Chicago became more aggressive.

In the third period, Chicago finally looked like the offense that's among the league's best in terms of goal scoring. Getting more shots on goal in the third period than the first two combined, the Blackhawks finally got to Elliott with a pair of goals from Duncan Keith and Dave Bolland before Marian Hossa scored a last-minute goal on an empty net to put the game away.
