Michal Handzus pounced on a rebound and fired it for a game-winner to give the Chicago Blackhawks a 3-2 win over the New York Islanders on Friday night at the United Center.
Due to the NHL lockout last season, the Hawks and Islanders did not meet in 2013 and Friday’s game was the first between the teams since Dec. 8, 2011.
