Corey Crawford finished with 26 stops for Chicago (12-8-1) in the loss. After giving Vancouver a 1-0 lead in the first period, Hansen snapped a 1-1 tie with his fourth goal in the last three games at 6:24 of the third. Dorsett chipped the puck down the boards into the Chicago zone before directing a shot toward the goal that Hansen deflected into the top corner for his eighth of the season. Prior to Hansen’s second goal, Nick Bonino had a great chance to give the Canucks the lead about five minutes into the third. But his shot from the side of a wide open net hit the far post and stayed out. Chicago had a power play with about eight minutes left in the third, but Vancouver’s penalty kill was effective. The Blackhawks, playing their second of a back-to-back and third game in four nights, pressed for the tie late, but were caught out on a rush when Vrbata scored his 10th of the season at 17:36. Hansen then won a race for the puck and scored into an empty net with 42 seconds left for the hat trick.

Kris Versteeg , who had two goals and four assists in his last three games, scored his seventh of the season tie things at 7:55 on the power play, deflecting a point shot from Duncan Keith past a helpless Miller. Hansen wired a shot off a face off earlier in the period that Crawford saved before the Blackhawks goalie snagged Vrbata’s deflection with his glove. The Canucks had a great chance to restore the lead on a power play of their own later in the period, but Crawford robbed Henrik Sedin with the heel of his skate after taking a pass at the side of the net from Daniel Sedin. source: http://www.foxsports.com/nhl/story/jannik-hansen-tallies-first-hat-trick-leads-vancouver-canucks-over-chicago-blackhawks-112414
