And here, perhaps, starts the comeback.

Team Lidstrom's Dustin Byfuglien -- having a season to remember -- just scored a nice tight-angle goal on a one-timer to make it 4-2.

Byfuglien's goal was set up by a familar face in Chicago's Pat Kane. The two combined quite often last season as teammates in Chicago during the run to the Stanley Cup.

Kane made a sweet pass across the crease, which Ward admitted on TV he did not expect, to feed Byfuglien for the shot.

Soon after, Chicago's Jonathon Toews set up Dallas' Loui Eriksson, and Colorado's Matt Duchene followed with a breakaway goal to tie the game at 4-4.

Marc-Andre Fleury has righted the ship after a rugged start to make this game interesting as it heads into the dying minutes of the first period.

Playing for my favorite team growing up, I've probably scored that goal a million times in my driveway. It feels good to actually do it in real life.
