By Chuck Sudo in News on Jan 6, 2012 2:30PM

Philadelphia 5, Blackhawks 4

The Blackhawks returned to Philadelphia for the first time since they won the 2010 Stanley Cup on the Wells Fargo Center ice, only to have James van Riemsdyk's power play goal with 32.8 seconds left in regulation saddle them with a loss. The Blackhawks battled back from a 4-2 deficit on goals by Brent Seabrook and Patrick Kane in the third period. the Blackhawks took a 2-1 lead in the second period on Andrew Shaw's first career goal, then Ray emery turned into a sieve in goal, allowing Scott Hartnell, Harry Zolnierczyk and van Riemsdyk to put the puck past him in a 4:20 span. (4:20. Hmmm...) The Blackhawks return to the United Center to take on the Colorado Avalanche. (7 p.m., CSN, WGN-AM 720)

Shaw, playing in his first NHL game, bussed in a group of friends from his hometown and also made a first impression by getting into his first fight. Here's video.

And here's video of Kaner's goal.

DePaul 84, Pittsburgh 81

Hell froze over at Allstate Arena last night as DePaul snapped an 18-game home losing streak in Big East conference play. Brandon Young's three-point play with 1.3 seconds left broke an 81-81 tie.

Young finished with 26 points while Cleveland Melvin added 20 and Moses Morgan scored 13 for DePaul, who won their third game in Big East play since the 2008-09 season.
