Blackhawks shutout Coyotes:6-0
The Chicago Blackhawks have resumed their winning ways and look to make the month of January as successful as December was.
The Hawks won their second consecutive game last night by shutting out the Phoenix Coyotes by a score of 6-0. All this was achieved without Patrick Kane who sat out his second game in a row with an ankle injury. Kane was replaced in the lineup by Adam Burish who celebrated his 25 th birthday in fine style by recording a goal and two assists. Burish started a four goal first period onslaught by the Blackhawks with his first goal of the season at 11:46. Cristobal Huet stopped 22 shots to record his 19 th career shutout. Kris Versteeg, Colin Fraser, Ben Eager, and Jonathon Toews with a pair scored the other Chicago goals.
