The Blackhawks got back into the win column on Sunday night with a 1-0 win over Vancouver, the fifth win in the last six games under interim head coach Derek King. 

Marc-Andre Fleury was perfect in goal, stopping all 40 shots he faced en route to his 68th career shutout. Brandon Hagel notched his fifth of the season early in the third period, the goal that proved the difference at Rogers Arena. 

BLACKHAWK OF THE GAME: Fleury was phenomenal on the night, stopping 15 shots in each of the first two periods to keep Chicago in the game until Hagel's tally. 

STAT OF THE NIGHT: Kirby Dach skated in his 100th NHL game on Sunday night in the same building in which he was drafted No. 3 overall in 2019. 

UP NEXT: The Blackhawks wrap their four-game road trip on Tuesday night in Calgary against the Flames. 


GAME RECAP


CHI: 1, VAN: 0
3rd - 4:12 - Brandon Hagel (Erik Gustafsson, Dylan Strome)

After a scoreless opening 40 minutes with Marc-Andre Fleury denying all 30 shots that reached him, the Blackhawks got a gritty goal to open the game's scoring early in the third. Dylan Strome worked the puck to Erik Gustafsson at the point in the offensive zone, where the defenseman put a wrister towards goal. Brandon Hagel battled through two Canucks defensemen in front to get a tip on the shot and direct it past Thatcher Demko for a 1-0 lead.
