SHARE Blackhawks shoot out to an early lead over Dallas

Things can’t start much better for a team than the start for the Blackhawks Saturday night. The Blackhawks and Stars hadn’t even played a full minute before the Blackhawks took the lead.

29 seconds into the game, the Blackhawks went to the power play after a hooking penalty. All of five seconds later, Seabrook blasted the puck on net.

The goal came against some familiar faces for Blackhawks fans. Seabrook shot the puck past former teammates Johnny Oduya and Antti Niemi.

The lead was briefly extended to 2-0 after fellow defenseman Trevor Van Riemsdyk cleaned up a rebound.

After allowing the Stars to inch a little closer, scoring a goal and making it 2-1, the Blackhawks offensive explosion continued. This time it was someone a little more used to scoring. Marian Hossa scored his 496th career goal after picking off a Dallas pass while on a penalty kill.

With Seabrook’s goal, the Blackhawks are already having a better game than the first time they played Dallas. In late December the Stars beat the Blackhawks 4-0.

Saturday’s game may be crucial in figuring out a playoff picture. The Blackhawks own a three-point lead in the standings over second place Dallas.
