Eighty-four seconds later, Brandon Sutter would score his 5th goal of the season, to make it 3-0 at 18:27, assisted by Daniel Sedin (7) and Henrik Sedin (7).

In the third, Vancouver would be looking for back-to-back wins at home since October.

The Blackhawks were thinking something else.

Chicago, after a power play opportunity did not result in anything with the man advantage, would pull within two goals of the Canucks, when Artemi Panarin (7) would score, assisted by Patrick Kane (14) and Brian Campbell (6), at 2:53.

Seventy-three seconds later, the Blackhawks would score again, to make it 3-2, when Vinnie Hinostroza (1), unassisted, buried the puck behind Markstrom, for his first NHL goal.

Chicago would complete the comeback to even the score at 3-3, when Ryan Hartman (4), would score, at 15:46, assisted by Vinnie Hinostroza (1).

With 2:01 left, the Canucks were just hanging on, as the Blackhawks were being relentless with their pressure, and an icing call resulted in a Vancouver timeout, to settle things down.

Regulation time would end and to overtime the game would go, with both teams tied 3-3.

In the overtime, Chicago wasted little time, as their captain Jonathan Toews scored at 0:31. The goal was reviewed automatically, and an offside on the play resulted in the goal being disallowed.

The game continued, with a flurry of exciting action, as both teams got high quality chances, and somehow, neither team could bury the puck.

Until, Marian Hossa with his second consecutive game winner, would seal the game for the Blackhawks, 4-3.

Hossa, his 11th goal, assisted by Duncan Keith (14) and  Vinnie Hinostroza (2), at 4:04.
