Team Red led from nearly start to finish, capturing a 5-1 win over Team White during the annual Training Camp Festival on Sunday at the United Center, with goals from five different Blackhawks.

Team Red took the early lead as Olli Maatta circled behind the net and found Brandon Saad in front for a one-timer past Robin Lehner.

Anton Wedin doubled the Team Red lead just before the first intermission with a quick wrister that beat Lehner five-hole.

A pair of penalties in the second period led to a penalty shot goal for each team. First up, Alex Nylander put a hard deke to the left before cutting back to the right to beat Matt Tomkins in goal.

Then, it was Kris Versteeg - back in a Blackhawks uniform after signing an AHL contract this summer - getting Team White on the board with a bit of patience to wait out Alexis Gravel.

After a scoreless third, the game moved to a 3-on-3 overtime frame, where Team Red continued to dominate. Olli Maata added to his opening assist, driving to the net and beating Colin Delia glove side for a 4-1 lead.
