Dustin Byfuglien shocks Wings with late penalty shot

The Hawks and Wings were tied at 2 in the final minute today (April 11, shabbos chol ha'moed, the third day of Passover, and Holy Saturday) when Dustin Byfuglien (BUFF-lin) skated in on a breakaway. A Wings player chased and hooked him, and the referee called a penalty shot with 00:27.6 on the clock. Under a shower of boos, Byfuglien converted to give the Hawks a very late lead. Andrew Ladd scored an ENG in the final seconds to finish the scoring. The Hawks have the #4 seed in the Western conference and will open at home against Vancouver or Calgary Tuesday or Wednesday night, the seventh or eighth night of Passover.

This is the Blackhawks' first win over Detroit this season.
