Second-period wrap: Lightning 1, Hawks 0

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Blackhawks continued to trail the Tampa Bay Lightning 1-0 after two periods at the United Center on Sunday.

There was no scoring in the second period, although the scoring chances picked up a bit for both teams. The Hawks spent too much time killing penalties with Michael Frolik getting called for a double-minor high-sticking infraction and Ryan Johnson for hooking. But their penalty killing was better in the middle 20 minutes than it was in the first 20. Meanwhile, the Hawks have yet to earn a man-advantage try.

On offense, the Hawks managed some good opportunities but weren’t able to get one by goalie Mike Smith. The Hawks are outshooting the Lightning 18-8.

The lone goal of the game was scored in the first period, a power-play tally by Vincent Lecavalier.
