Yellow: Johnny Oduya has a clean look at the goal about 90 seconds into the period and tries to go five-hole on Howard, but the Wings goalie is still on fire.

Yellow: Rozsival flies in on Howard on a mini-breakaway. Howard stops him too. Sensing a theme here.

Yellow: Then Bolland busts in on a clean breakaway from the blue line. And—you guessed it—Howard makes a HUGE stop.

Green: GOAL! Sharp feeds a wide-open Oduya, who finally beats Howard with a laser beam off the post and in. Could this break the floodgates open?

Yellow: As the Hawks continue to dominate, Niklas Hjalmarsson almost backhands one past Howard. And the taunting chants of "How-ard! How-ard!" ring out from the United Center faithful.

Green: GOAL! Marcus Kruger stakes the Hawks to a two-goal lead. Might as well be 10-1, the way the home team is playing.

Yellow: Brunner dings one off the crossbar, and Brent Seabrook sweeps one off the goal line. Moments later, Corey Crawford robs Abdelkader from in close. Whew!

Green: GOAL! Sharp closes the book on this one with an empty-netter, and the Hawks lead the series.

Final score: Blackhawks 4, Red Wings 1
