After more than 13 periods had passed without an even-strength goal, the Blackhawks finally broke through Friday against the Wild.

Jonathan Toews netted a 5-on-5 goal during the second period of a 5-4 loss in Minnesota to end the drought.

Toews’ goals was Chicago’s third of the game, but the first came on the penalty kill and the second on a power play.

Patrick Kane’s power-play tally against Winnipeg on Thursday was Chicago’s only goal in a 3-1 loss.

In the two games prior, Towes netted an overtime winner in each game to break a scoreless tie.

Some were starting to wonder if they would ever see another even-strength goal:
