CHICAGO IL – JANUARY 07 Duncan Keith

"We weren't skating, no energy, turning a lot of pucks over, and they were playing in our end".

Patrick Kane recorded a career-high five points, with one goal and four assists, in the Blackhawks' 8-2 dismantling of Ottawa at the Canadian Tire Centre.

The Chicago Blackhawks need to get off to a fast start, which they will while cruising to a 4-2 win in an arena the 'Hawks don't play too well in historically.

Granlund and Spurgeon scored in the third period as Minnesota overcame a 2-0 deficit before ultimately losing in overtime. "Being within one goal is awesome".

"You saw the first period", Boudreau said.

"To [the Wild's] credit, I thought in the second and third period, they really buckled down and played really hard".

But that's all the Blackhawks could muster.

Patrick Kane had a five-point night while Nick Schmaltz and Jonathan Toews had two-goal efforts. He pointed to a strong power play, where the Blackhawks went 4-for-6, as a difference.

"It was good to get out of the first 1-0 and we got some big plays from a couple guys", Dubnyk said. "You want to build off that and we didn't do it". With a 14.4 percent success rate, the Hawks had the third-worst power play in the league going into the game and were 0-for-9 over their last four games.

The Hawks scored four power-play goals to support goalie Anton Forsberg, who made 25 saves in his second straight start since he sat out four games in a row in favor of Jeff Glass.

The loss snapped Ottawa's two-game winning streak and was the team's most lopsided loss of the season.

But things were back to normal for Seabrook on Wednesday when he returned to the lineup against the Minnesota Wild.

Thomas Chabot, Mike Hoffman and Gabriel Dumont also scored to help the Senators rebound from an 8-2 home loss to Chicago on Tuesday night.

Seabrook, who is an alternate captain, has one goal and 10 assists in 41 games this season.

Boucher added that Ryan attempted to play through the pain against the Blackhawks. The 32-year-old carries a cap hit of $6.875 million and has six years remaining on his contract beyond this season. Coach Joel Quenneville said he's "looking for a little bit more from (Seabrook) ... whether it's defending, quickness or offensively".

The Flames will have to hope that their bye week doesn't turn into a momentum-stopper.
