Brown's first attempt went off the back of Blackhawks defenceman Johnny Oduya, but it bounced right back to the captain, who sent it past Corey Crawford for his 12th of the season. Anze Kopitar set up the score by winning a faceoff in Chicago's end.
Kopitar also had a goal in the second period to end Los Angeles' scoreless streak at 150 minutes, 35 seconds.
It's an incredible feeling just to see it go in and see the Joe go pretty crazy. Ever since the introduction there, I was kind of feeling the nerves, and to put that one home, I started to feel comfortable and I thought my play started to pick up.
