2/15/15: Chicago Blackhawks 2 Pittsburgh Penguins 1 (SO)

1st Blackhawks Goal (Hjalmarsson), Even

  • Chicago Contributions
    B. Saad – gets to the loose puck off of a faceoff in the right circle of the Penguins zone, then passes the puck back to Hjalmarsson at the right point
    N. Hjalmarsson – skates towards the middle of the blue line and takes a slapshot that goes past a screen by Crosby in the slot and beats Fleury’s glove
  • Pittsburgh Faults
    S. Crosby – kicks the puck forward on a defensive zone faceoff in the right circle so it goes to Saad, then gets caught in the shooting lane between Hjalmarsson and Fleury so he partially screens Fleury from reacting to the shots on time

1st Penguins Goal (Spaling), Even

  • Pittsburgh Contributions
    B. Sutter – picks up a loose puck below the goal line in the Penguins zone and wraps it up the boards for Bennett
    B. Bennett – skates out of the defensive zone, through the right side of the neutral zone, into the right side of the Blackhawks zone, to the inside around Cumiskey, back to the outside to the bottom of the right faceoff circle, and finally takes a bad angle shot that produces a rebound in front of the crease
    N. Spaling – goes to the net and shoots the rebound over Crawford’s blocker into the net
  • Chicago Faults
    K. Cumiskey – loses Bennett when he tries to stand up on him entering the offensive zone and can’t keep up with him as he gets the shot off from the bottom of the right faceoff circle
    P. Kane – gets caught watching/following Bennett and skates away from where Spaling is in front of the net so Spaling is there by himself to shoot the rebound in
    C. Crawford – shows poor rebound control on the bad angle shot from Bennett and kicks the puck out in front of the net directly to Spaling
