The Chicago Blackhawks knew that they had to rebound after being shut out by Shea Weber and the Nashville Predators on Sunday night. Fortunately for them, this is exactly what they did when they took on Ryan Garbutt and the Dallas Stars. Ultimately, the Blackhawks would down the Stars 4-2. There was one goal that night which is destined to remain in everyone’s mind; the goal scored by Blackhawks center Andrew Shaw on the power play late in the first period.
Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews passes the puck to left wing Patrick Sharp who fires on the net. The rebound springs free from Dallas goaltender Kari Lehtonen. Just when you think the game is going to remain scoreless going into the second, Shaw puts one between the pipes.
While on his knees, and facing away from the goal mind you, he is able to get ahold of the rebound, swing it around his right side, and the puck flies past the stick side of Lehtonen.
Take a look for yourself.
