The Blackhawks took a commanding lead with a three-goal middle frame.

David Kampf struck first with his first of the season at 2:26 of the second. Dominik Kubalik found Alex Nylander from a scrum on the boards. Nylander slid a pass across the slot while falling to a wide-open Kampf, who beat Campbell to the near side.

Strome found his second of the night at 15:55 of the period, once again from DeBrincat. The latter forced a turnover and walked out from behind the goal to find the former cruising through the slot with a backhand pass. Strome beat Campbell glove side for his first two-goal performance since April 1 against Winnipeg.

Serving as Strome's set-up man twice, DeBrincat had the favor returned as Strome threw a no-look pass into the slot that DeBrincat reached, caught and fired a shot in a one motion for a 4-0 Blackhawks lead at 19:02.
