A wild second period saw the Hawks score three times and the Jackets twice, but it was Jonathan Toews who stole the show. The Hawks captain had a goal and two assists in the second, highlighted by a steal and shorthanded tally with under a minute to play. It could be the dagger.
The Blue Jackets took a brief lead when they scored two goals in the span of 0:42 early in the period. Joel Quenneville used his timeout at that point and his players responded.
Marty Turco has looked ordinary in goal but, at the same time, has made some big saves after defensive letdowns.
