Morning Box Score: Blackhawks Beat Minnesota
By Chuck Sudo in News on Jan 13, 2012 2:30PM
The Blackhawks seem to have gotten back on track after a four-game losing streak. They skated well and had good rotations last night in a relatively easy win over the Wild at the United Center. Dave Bolland scored a power play goal and added an empty netter. Jimmy Hayes, Andrew Shaw and VIktor Stalberg also scored for the Blackhawks, and Ray Emery received a lot of help in front of him in stopping 21 of 23 shots.
Sources also told ESPN Chicago that Patrick Sharp wasn't named to the NHL All Star game because of his injured wrist. Sharp is one of three players in the NHL with 20 goals and 20 assists, and his teammates have taken Sharp's omission as a snub.
