It took nearly half the game, but the Blackhawks finally broke the scoreless tie in their Tuesday night game against the Penguins with a breakaway goal.

Midway through the second period, after spending most of the period in their own zone, the Blackhawks found themselves in an odd-man rush down the ice. Once again, it was Patrick Kane pushing the offense, finding an open Artemi Panarin.

When you hear “2-on-1 Kane and Panarin” you already know it’s in the net… #CHIvsPIT

While the Blackhawks took the early lead, it did little to help the flow of the game. Corey Crawford, however, continued to hold Pittsburgh scoreless despite handling the majority of the game’s shots.
