First-period wrap: Hawks 1, Blues 1
The Hawks struck first when Bryan Bickell scored after a nice transition up ice. Sean O’Donnell passed cross-ice to Nick Leddy who found Bickell at center ice. As he entered the offensive zone Dave Bolland skated through the middle of the ice providing a quick screen for Bickell to shoot past and score.
But just nine second after the ensuing face-off Alex Steen blew by Leddy and scored on Corey Crawford to tie the game.
The Hawks had one power play chance of their own, recording a shot late in the mad-advantage breaking a string of nine consecutive power play attempts without a shot on goal.
