SAN JOSE -- The Chicago Blackhawks trail the San Jose Sharks 3-2 after two periods at HP pavilion.

The Hawks got back into the game thanks to two Marcus Kruger rebound goals; he paid the price in front of the net to score three minutes apart. The goals tied the game at 2-2 and came after point shots by Nick Leddy and Brent Seabrook got to the net.

But a late goal by San Jose gave the Sharks the intermission lead after Viktor Stalberg turned a puck over at the Sharks' blue-line. An odd-man break ensued for the Sharks and eventually Joe Thornton tried to center a puck which Dylan Olsen knocked into his own net as he lay near the crease.

The Hawks had the better chances in the middle 20 minutes and are outshooting San Jose 24 to 15 after two periods.
