This one lived up to its billing. The two teams sitting at the top of the NHL standings clashed at HP Pavilion in a wild 60 minutes of hockey Tuesday night that ended up with the Chicago Blackhawks skating away with a 5-3 come-from-behind victory over the Sharks. The Blackhawks entered the game with 16 points, one ahead of the Sharks and at least three ahead of every other NHL team. The win improved Chicago's record to 8-0-2 while the loss dropped San Jose to 7-2-1 and left the Sharks without a victory in its past three games.
