Panthers' penalty kill fails miserably in 6-2 loss to Blackhawks

Stanley Cup Champs go 3 for 4 on the power play to humble the Cats in Chi-Town.

The Florida Panthers failed to put together a three-game winning streak, as they were soundly beaten 6-2 by the Chicago Blackhawks Sunday night. A rusty Scott Clemmensen surrendered six goals on thirty-two shots starting in place of Tim Thomas, who was given a rare night off after beating Detroit on Saturday.

Patrick Sharp and Brent Seabrook scored power-play goals to stake the Blackhawks to 2-0 lead after one period.

Marian Hossa scored just 39 seconds into the middle frame to put Chicago up by three.

The Panthers finally got on the board when former 'Hawk Dylan Olsen beat Antti Raanta, who replaced injured starter Corey Crawford, for his second goal of the season at 4:05 of the middle frame. Tomas Kopecky and Erik Gudbranson picked up the helpers.

Marcel Goc scored an unassisted goal five minutes later to pull the scrappy Cats within one.

Unfortunately, that was as close as they would get as Michal Handzus scored with 2:34 remaining in the period to restore Chicago's two-goal lead.

Andrew Shaw, on a power play, and Brandon Saad tallied in the third period to complete the scoring.

The Panthers return home for a rematch with the Red Wings on Tuesday.

Sorry folks, had to keep this recap very brief, so the floor is yours... and go!
