DeBrincat, Gustafsson Lead Blackhawks to Comeback Win Over Panthers

DeBrincat scored with less than five seconds left to tie the game, and Gustafsson scored in overtime

Alex DeBrincat scored with less than five seconds left in regulation to tie the game, and Erik Gustafsson scored the game-winner in overtime to give the Chicago Blackhawks a 5-4 win over the Florida Panthers on Saturday night. 

The Blackhawks, who trailed by two goals entering the third period, scored more than three goals for the first time in nearly a month, with Alexandre Fortin also tallying a goal in the frame to snap a brief two-game losing streak.

David Kampf and Patrick Kane each had a goal and an assist in the game, and Cam Ward stopped 34 shots en route to the victory. 

Mike Hoffman and Aaron Ekblad were among the goal scorers for the Panthers, but they couldn't get the win as James Reimer gave up five goals on 41 shots to the Blackhawks. 

The win is the Blackhawks' first road victory in their last nine games away from the United Center. 

They will be back home Tuesday night to take on the Vegas Golden Knights on Tuesday night.
