Bo Horvat had his first three NHL assists, while Derek Dorsett added two assists. 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 goal of the season. Before Hansens second goal, Nick Bonino had a great chance to give the Canucks the lead about five minutes into the third period. 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 Vancouvers 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 was 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 43 seconds left for the hat trick. Chicago had won three straight including Saturday nights 7-1 thrashing of the Edmonton Oilers and five of its last six. Chicagos Kris Versteeg, who had two goals and four assists in his last three games, scored his seventh goal of the season. source:

DK Playbook: Strategies for Winning Cash Games Hockey The Blackhawks scored again on the second half of the power play as well. Bryan Bickell shot was deflected on the way to the net and the rebound came to Hossa on the doorstep for his third of the year. Scrivens was pulled after allowing five goals on 13 shots, with backup Viktor Fasth coming in to replace him. The move didn’t do much as the Blackhawks scored on their second shot on Fasth, with Keith moving in from the point and unleashing a hard shot for the goal. The three goals to start the second period came in a span of 2:31, giving the Blackhawks six goals at a time the Oilers had just five shots. Edmonton finally broke Crawford’s shutout bid with 12 minutes left in the second period as Perron tipped Justin Schultz’s shot into the net for his second of the season. NOTES:It was the first of three games this season between the two teams. The Blackhawks swept three games from the Oilers last year, scoring five goals in each. The last time Chicago lost in Edmonton was on Feb. 2, 2012, a game in which Sam Gagner recorded eight points for the Oilers. … source:

Hopefully hes not out long. The goaltender remained down for a lengthy period of time before testing out his leg with trainer Ray Barile. After several minutes and a long discussion with Barile, Elliott reluctantly limped down the tunnel to the Blues locker room. Jake Allen took over in goal. Its real tough, said defenseman Barret Jackman. He will get evaluated tomorrow and we will see how bad it is. Hes been playing unbelievable for us. Jake did a good job coming in, too. He wanted to stay. I dont know what was said between him and Ray, but probably precautionary, him coming out. Before exiting the game, Elliott stopped all 16 shots he faced. Should Elliott be out for any length of time, the Blues may be forced to maneuver their roster a bit. The next goalie on the Blues depth chart is 21-year-old Jordan Binnington, who has never participated in an NHL game. Binnington has a 6-2-1 record to go along with a .925 save percentage in the AHL with the Chicago Wolves this season. source:
