CHICAGO -- The Chicago Blackhawks and Phoenix Coyotes were scoreless after the first period of Game 6 at the United Center on Monday night.

The Hawks came out flying as Joel Quennville balanced out his lines and each one provided pressure. The Hawks were outshooting the Coyotes 7-0 with less than five minutes gone by, outshot them 16-2 for the period. The two shots-against ties a season low.

Brendan Morrison had a strong opening period, registering three shots on net and providing a couple of nifty passes to set up his teammates. He’s playing with Jonathan Toews and Viktor Stalberg.

Both teams had a power-play opportunity but neither could cash in. The Hawks had just one shot on theirs while Phoenix didn't have any.
