Blackhawks forward Brandon Saad tied the game with a redirection goal 3:15 into the second period. It was Saad's ninth goal of the season. It came off of a Capitals giveaway that led to two bang-bang passes from Marian Hossa to Jonathan Toews and from Toews to Saad.
Capitals defenseman John Carlson tried to send the puck around the end boards to Brooks Orpik, but his soft backhanded pass off the end boards from the left circle never made it to Orpik on the other side.
The puck hit off the boards and caromed off the back of the goal, where it was intercepted Hossa. He quickly found Toews in the right circle; Toews one-touched a pass to Saad, who was cutting through the left circle with his stick out for the redirection.
With the assist, Toews became the NHL's all-time leader in points in outdoor games with five on two goals and three assists in three games. He also played in the 2009 NHL Winter Classic at Wrigley Field and in the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series game at Soldier Field.
