The Chicago Blackhawks had another disastrous third period but were able to overcome it. Jonathan Toews and Patrick Sharp scored in the shootout to lift the Blackhawks to a 3-2 victory over the Panthers on Tuesday night at BB&T Arena in Sunrise Fla. Toews and Bryan Bickell scored in regulation and Corey Crawford earned the win after the Hawks coughed up a two-goal third-period lead for the third time this season but came out on top to improve to 6-1-2 on the season. With the win in the first of a two-game road trip to the Sunshine State the Hawks extended their points streak to six consecutive contests. Dmitry Kulikov and Tomas Fleishmann scored for the Panthers but it wasn’t enough as Jacob Markstrom suffered the loss in goal after replacing the injured Tim Thomas. After a scoreless first period during which the Hawks out shot the Panthers 12-6 Toews struck early in the second to put the defending Stanley Cup champions in front. With Dmitry Kulikov in the penalty box for interference the Hawks took advantage of the open ice to go tic-tac-toe passing as Patrick Kane found Duncan Keith from across the ice and the defenseman then sent a pass to the slot where a hard-charging Toews chipped it past Thomas’ glove off the backhand. The way the Hawks were playing defensively that gave Crawford an adequate margin with which to work. Not long after Toews’ score Sheldon Brookbank sprawled onto the ice to stop an two-on-one opportunity by the Panthers. Florida had some momentum and had a tie set in its sights not long after Toews’ goal when Jonathan Huberdeau was awarded a penalty shot. Last season’s Calder Cup winner as the NHL’s top rookie had a step in the Hawks’ zone and was taken down by Michal Handzus. After some flashy moves Crawford was up the task and denied Huberdeau’s attempt.
