Captain Serious #19 led the Hawks scoring as he "Lit the Lamp" almost midway through the 1st frame for a Hawks 1-0 lead. Montreal's Paul Byron scored not even two minutes after Toews tying the game at 1-1 only to see Hawks Winger Ryan Garbutt score two minutes after Byron for a Hawks 2-1 lead and a lead they would never give up.
Both of the Blue-Paint Tenants were fabulous after the 1st frame as Hawks "Craw-Dad" Corey Crawford stopped 39 of 40 SOG. The Habs Mike Condon stopped 31-33 SOG as the game was played like a Stanley Cup Playoff Game with both teams looking real sharp.
The Hawks "W" gives Hawks lead man Joel Quenneville his 783 "W" passing the great Al Arbour in wins putting him #2 on the list behind Scotty Bowman. Chicago also keeps thei 9-game win streak alive and is now tied with the Dallas Stars with 62 points in the Central for 1st place.
Here comes the Indian Head as we start to get into the thick of the 2K15-16 season...
