William Hill Review

DeBrincat has been in great form recently, scoring 6 goals and with 6 assists in his last 6 matches. He’s thriving on the line with his former junior teammate, Dylan Strome, with points scored in 11 of the last 12 games he played.

Patrick Kane was also on the score sheet, scoring his 36th goal and with 2 assists on his count. Strome had 1 goal and 2 assists, with Brandon Saad, Gustav Forsling and Jonathan Toews scoring as well to help the Blackhawks move closer to Minnesota Wild. The team from Chicago is now 1 point behind for the second Wild Card place in the Western Conference.

The Senators lost for the eighth time in their last 11 matches, and now the team from the Canadian capital has the worst score in the league.

Colin White scored twice, with 1 assist on his count, Chabot scored two, with Mark Stone, Bobby Ryan, and Rudolfs Balcers also hitting the net.

A Nine-Goal First Period

The first period ended with the Blackhawks leading 5-4, with plenty of defensive breakdowns, while both starting goaltenders were substituted before the period came to an end.

Commenting on the result of the first period, Chabot said he had never seen nine goals in one period.

The Blackhawks’ goalie Cam Ward finished the game with 24 saves out of 28 shots.

Ottawa was the first to take the lead, with Ryan scoring a power-play goal, while Balcers increased that lead. DeBrincat then scored two goals on less than 3 minutes to tie the result. White’s first goal put Ottawa back in the lead 3-2, while Kane and Strome put Chicago ahead for the first time in the game. Saad made it 5-3, while Stone’s goal made it 5-4.

The second period started with White’s goal, while DeBrincat’s scored his hat trick for the lead. Forsling soon increased the Blackhawks’ lead to 7-5, with Toews giving his team a three-goal lead at the beginning of the third period.

Chabot first scored to make it 8-6, and then to pull the Senators within a goal. But that was all they could do, as there was no time to make another comeback.
