The Hawks exploded for two breakaway goals, a penalty-shot score and a shot from the point by Nick Leddy that founds its way to the net.
A minute and two seconds after that, Leddy found the back of the net after Marian Hossa held the puck around the goal before getting it to the Hawks defenseman. John Scott had a nice screen on the play.
Key to the big period was Hawks’ penalty killing. They stopped three power-play attempts by the Rangers with no damage while New York had just five shots on net in the period. It’s the best the Hawks have looked in quite a while.
