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. NOTES: Versteeg has nine goals and 18 assists in 34 games after fully recovering from knee surgery in March 2013. He missed the first four games of this season with an unrelated lower-body injury. . Dallas C Shawn Horcoff missed his third game with an illness and is on IR. He eligible to return starting Tuesday. . source: http://www.bostonherald.com/sports/bruins_nhl/nhl_coverage/2015/01/blackhawks_win_5_4_in_ot_end_stars_4_game_streak

Versteeg left Thursday’s 3-2 loss to Washington after he blocked Eric Fehr ‘s shot with his hand early in the third period. Versteeg ranks third on the team with 27 points (nine goals, 18 assists) in 34 games. Coach Joel Quenneville said Saturday that Versteeg will be out for “about a month,” and the team doesn’t think the injury will require surgery. The winger also missed the start of the season with a lower-body injury. The Blackhawks promoted top prospect Teuvo Teravainen from the minors Friday to help make up for Versteeg’s absence. Chicago’s next game is Sunday against Dallas. source: http://www.westport-news.com/sports/article/Blackhawks-forward-Kris-Versteeg-out-for-a-month-5992296.php
