Bring on the Hats

Captain Jonathan Toews scored three goals, his third career hat trick, as the Blackhawks captured a 6-5 victory over the Washington Senators

Toews scored his three goals in a fifteen minute period between the second and third periods, one at the 14:30 minute mark in the second, two in the first ten minutes of the third.  The hat trick prompted this tweet from the Hawks official twitter page:

Back up goalie Nikolai Khabibulin was pulled in favor of Crawford in the second period.  Trailing 4-3 going into the third period, the Hawks scored three unanswered goals and held off a late push from the Senators to lock up the win.

The Hawks out shot Ottawa 40-37 and continued their impressive play on the power play, scoring on 1 of their 2 opportunities.

The Hawks won their second game in as many nights after a 5-1 rout of the Wild on Monday.
