Chicago Blackhawks left wing Bryan Bickell (29) scores a goal past Vancouver Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo (1) during the first period.
The Backhawks were playing for pride Tuesday night and stay alive to force a Game 5 in the Stanley Cup playoffs.
After missing 17 games with a concussion, Dave Bolland returned to the lineup and had a goal and three assists, helping the Blackhawks beat the Vancouver Canucks 7-2.
The Blackhawks got their momentum during the second period, with defensemen Brian Campbell and Duncan Keith scoring 17 seconds apart.
In the final period, Patrick Sharp scored two power-play goals
While invigorating for Hawks and their fans, the deed is by no means done. Vancouver leads the first-round series 3-1, meaning Chicago needs to win the next three games to advance.
