First, Patrick Kane gave his family and friends something to cheer about by scoring a highlight-reel goal in a rare trip home to Buffalo on Sunday night.
Andrew Shaw stopped a long scoring drought. Jonathan Toews had another big game. The Chicago Blackhawks had 13 players with at least one point.
Marian Hossa will be sidelined for two to three weeks because of an upper-body injury, leaving the Chicago Blackhawks without one of their top scorers.
The swirling snow came down in waves, dancing around the upper deck before eventually descending to the temporary ice rink in the middle of a football field.
Joe Pavelski had a hat trick to move into a tie for second in the NHL in goals and the San Jose Sharks beat the Philadelphia Flyers 7-3 Thursday night in the first game for both teams following the Olympic break.
The Pittsburgh Penguins were wrapping up practice Friday when Tanner Glass grabbed an iPad mini and skated around the temporary rink in the middle of Soldier Field.
Cam Talbot came within 12 seconds of shutting out the defending Stanley Cup champions. Before he could blink, he was nearly headed for overtime.
Capitals defenseman John Carlson will come without an Olympic medal, but it's hard to blame him for Team USA's shortcomings.

"Growing up, it's always the team you have to beat to win a championship," U.S. defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk said. "We're used to it now. We know we're always going to have to play Canada if we want to accomplish our goal."
The U.S.-Canada hockey rivalry starts from childhood, particularly for players who grow up near the border. Although they're often pals and teammates in the NHL, their friendships evaporate if they're ever lucky enough to face off at the Olympics.
"One time, I was carrying it up the ice and had to look down three or four times just to kind of see where it was," Kane said. "You could feel the snow down there, so it's obviously a little bit harder to push it."
"I think it's a great matchup to have for this kind of game, probably," Kane said. "Two teams that a lot of fans want to watch on TV and when you mix it in with a stadium series-type of game like this, I think it makes it even more entertaining."
