Versteeg is expected to be out for “about a month,” according to coach Joel Quenneville. Jamie Benn opened the scoring 3:59 in when he buried a rebound from the edge of left circle into an open net. Crawford had to react quickly to make a pad save on Tyler Seguin’s initial deflected shot from 20 feet out in slot, and wasn’t able to recover. Saad muscled to the net, fought off Stars defenseman Trevor Daly and directed in Jonathan Toews’ centering pass 1:15 later to tie it at 1. Defensive breakdowns lead to a scoring flurry early in the second. Jordie Benn, a defenseman, trailed into the slot and scored his first goal of the season 2:15 into the period to complete a slick three-way passing play with Cole and Ales Hemsky to put Dallas ahead 2-1. No Blackhawks forwards backchecked on the Stars’ rush. Kane tied it at 2 at 3:58 to finish a 2-on-1 with Sharp, who created the odd-man break when he blew around Jordie Benn at the Dallas blue line. Cole restored the Stars’ lead at 3-2 just 45 seconds later when he was left wide open at the side of the net and lifted in a high shot. Bickell’s power-play tip-in with 1:55 left in the second tied it 3-all. Cole’s second goal of the game, on a mid-air deflection of Goligoski’s floating feed from the left point 4:05 into the third period, put Dallas back ahead, 4-3. source: http://www.bostonherald.com/sports/bruins_nhl/nhl_coverage/2015/01/blackhawks_win_5_4_in_ot_end_stars_4_game_streak
