Carpenter broke up a a passing attempt in the defensive zone, carried the puck down the ice, passed it across the high slot and buried the rebound off of a shot by Connor Murphy. The shorthanded goal put Chicago up 1-0.
Strome made his return and found twine with a power-play goal at 18:51 of the first period. Gustafsson fired a wrister from the blue line and Strome deflected the puck past Tuukka Rask to double the Blackhawks lead, 2-0.
Alex DeBrincat scored 17 seconds into the third period to break his goal drought and give the Blackhawks a 3-0 lead. DeBrincat picked up a pass from Strome in the neutral zone and ripped a shot up past Rask's shoulder from the circle and into the back of the net.
