The Chicago Blackhawks snapped a five-game losing streak with an overtime victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Friday.
The Hawks played with more intensity than they did on Wednesday when they got blown out by the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Kevin Korchinski scored the game-winning goal with 30 seconds left to go in overtime.
Here are three more things you need to know about the Chicago Blackhawks victory.
Jason Dickinson scored a hat trick and continues to play well.
Dickinson pulled off a rare feat with his hat trick against the Maple Leafs.
Dickinson has been on fire lately as he has scored goals in four straight periods.
He has never been known as a goal scorer in his NHL career. If Jason keeps this up, he will surely register his first career double-digit goal season.
Also, it was neat to see the hats fly onto the ice and Dickenson catch one.
Arvid Soderblom was outstanding in overtime.
The goalie faced some great shots from Auston Matthews in the extra period and turned him away.
William Nylander also had a chance to win the game with an excellent breakaway shot on goal. The post helped Soderblom stop the puck from going into the net.
Soderblom had been shaky to start the season but he was good in goal against the Maple Leafs.
Corey Perry was a healthy scratch for the second consecutive game.
Perry participated in Wednesday’s morning skate. He was then scratched for the game later in the day.
Head coach Luke Richardson said it was an organizational decision.
When he was pressed for more information on Perry’s status, Richardson said he could not provide any additional information.
It is mysterious as to why Perry has been removed from the lineup since he is having a solid season.
It is highly unlikely Perry is being traded. It is either a discipline issue or a personal matter.
The Chicago Blackhawks can ill-afford to be without forwards especially with Taylor Hall now being out for the season.
