The Hawks came out like the game was supposed to be played at night. They slept-walked through the early portion of the period getting outshot 10-0 at the first commercial timeout. Corey Crawford made big saves to keep it scoreless early.
A few minutes later Todd Bertuzzi got behind the Hawks defense on a line change and was off to the races on a breakaway when Pavel Datsyuk found him at center ice. He roofed one past Crawford for the goal.
The Hawks were dominated, outshot 21 to 4 in an awful period for the visitors.
