Here are some more notes from the game:
- Blackhawks forward Bryan Bickell scored his third goal in as many games. He has responded ever since being dropped from the top line down to the third line.
- Lightning forward Steven Stamkos continued his hot start to the season and added to his success against the Blackhawks. Stamkos had two goals and two assists on the night.
- Toews' late third period goal was an own goal scored by Tampa Bay. Toews was the last Blackhawk to touch the puck so he was credited with the goal.
- Neither goalie played great tonight. Nikolai Khabibulin stopped only 19 of the 25 shots he faced, while Ben Bisop faired a bit better, stopping 38 of 43 shots.
The Blackhawks will now head back home where they will take on the Minnesota Wild this Saturday. That game will begin at 7 pm CT.
