Blackhawks score twice in nine seconds to beat Canucks

Nov 24, 2013, 12:39 AM EDT

It doesn’t carry the cultural currency of “17 seconds,” but the Chicago Blackhawks pulled off another stunning turnaround on Saturday, changing a 1-0 deficit to a 2-1 win against the Vancouver Canucks thanks to two goals in nine seconds.

Obviously, the game was about more than that surprising duo of tallies, but they ultimately decided the latest game in one of the NHL’s best contemporary rivalries.

Andrew Shaw tied up the game 1-1 four minutes and forty seconds into the third period:

Nine seconds later, Marcus Kruger gave the Blackhawks that stunning 2-1 lead:

Roberto Luongo might be too bummed to tweet something hilarious tonight, so if he needs a bright side to look on, at least there was no “Chelsea Dagger” playing, right?

    Hopefully Luongo follows ProHockeyTalk

      I think he’s too busy winning Blackhawk fans over with one of the best Twitter feeds in the NHL to care.

        So it’s just me on the Bobby Lu love? I’ll own it.

    I guess everyone saw who should be Team Canada’s netminder…. Here’s a hint, he has a Stanley Cup ring….

      As awesome as that would be, I’m too selfish as an American and a Blackhawks fan to want Crow representing his country in the Olympics. Let somebody else’s goalie get worn down more, Crawford has spent too much time in net already this season.

      He’ll be in that 3rd spot at best. One of the most overrated goalies in the NHL.

    You always get a good game when it’s ‘Nucks/’Hawks

    point taken, but i think ken dryden’s a little too old for a comeback

    was that bad hockey or was that bad ice tonight…?

    one would think hockey on display as we reach toward december would start approaching mid season form, but that was just plain bad, exhibition grade slop

    take away a sterling performance by corey crawford and the all too predictable gaffe extravaganza by roberto luongo, and there was little left to redeem this game before the discriminating fan…even kesler’s dive lacked its usual precision and carefully described glide plane

    what we saw tonight had little flow, little in the way of coherent attack by either side, and little of what we might have expected were these teams playing to potential

    and i gave up a netflix binge on foyle’s war to see a game i expected to showcase serious cup contenders…i want my three hours back, damn it

      Not sure how you came to think in was a game between cup contenderS. There was only one in that game. If it had been against the Blues, Sharks, Ducks, sure, or to reach a bit further, Yotes, Aves and Kings.

      But the Nucks in decline?

    Kaptain America, you out there? I think it was you who said you couldn’t wait until the nucks play the Hawks so they could be exposed for what they were.I hate when winning teams get exposed.

    • comeonnowguys - Nov 24, 2013 at 11:02 AM

      “If Vancouver didn’t just come off of a seven game series that should have been two games, and if Chicago hadn’t started with a two-goal lead and allowed two extra players, then the Blackhawks would have been EXPOSED!”

      I hope that guy’s got a waterproof keyboard because the tearflow must be massive.

      Fun aside, it’s still November.

      • hammerhead5573 - Nov 24, 2013 at 11:15 AM

        Agreed, it’s November. Wish everyone would remember that. My expectations are too high though.

    I didn’t get to see the game last night, but it’s probably for the best because I nearly broke my computer screen when I read this article. If I’d watched those nine seconds I’d be shopping for a new laptop right now.

    Loungo has gone from substitute Stooge to full time headline Stooge. Wait, sorry Moe, I didn’t mean to insult you and the boys.
    Forget about the Redskins changing their name…I think these two names are more appropriate. How about a vote?

    1) Vancouver Cannots!
    2) Vancouver Can-nut-sacks
    3) The Man-couger Cannucks
    4) The Van-can’t Cannucks
