Patrick Kane shoots the puck while getting hit by Max Pacioretty

The United Center erupted last night after Patrick Kane deked, and made an impossible shot while falling to the ice, which sealed the Chicago Blackhawks 11th win of the season against the Montreal Canadiens. Rookie, Gustav Forsling started off the scoring with the first goal of his NHL career. Two goals in the first three minutes of the 2nd period put the Canadiens ahead. A goal by Marian Hossa at 11:29 into the second tied the game up. Patrick Kane’s highlight reel goal put the Hawks ahead with 4:37 left in the second period.

Montreal’s visit to Chicago also included the return of forward Andrew Shaw to Chicago, who won two rings with Chicago in 2013 and 2015. Shaw had six shots on goal, all of which were stopped by former teammate Corey Crawford.

With the craziness of the Cubs winning the World Series after 108 years, the Blackhawks are flying under the radar to Chicago fans. The Blackhawks have put together an impressive nine game run the past three weeks, going 8-0-1.

The Hawks started off the season a bit sluggish starting off with a 3-3-1 record, giving away the impression of a season that could be a bit rough for Chicago fans. Without much recognition the Blackhawks have pulled it out.

The Blackhawks next couple games will be played against easier teams, but in the upcoming weeks they will play more difficult games including the Oilers on November 21, the Sharks on November 23 and the Ducks on November 25.

Chicago is ranked first in the Western Conference, and if they keep clicking they should not lose that spot.
