Blues Beat Blackhawks in Shootout

By Chris Kuc, Chicago Tribune reporter10:14 p.m. CDT, October 17, 2013

Patrick Kane crumpled to the ice after the Blues’ Barret Jackman slammed his face first into the boards. As the Blackhawks winger took stock of his body parts during the second-period play, Jackman took a shove or two from Kane’s teammates before heading to the penalty box.

What last season likely would have escalated into an all-out brawl merely resulted in a Hawks power play — in which the recovered Kane participated — as the Central Division rivals for the most part have focused more on playing hockey than throwing fists in their first two meetings this season.

The Blues won Thursday night’s skill game when T.J. Oshie scored the winner in the shootout to lift the visitors to a 3-2 victory over the Hawks in front of a crowd of 21,169 at the United Center.
