After sending more players to Rockford earlier in the day, the Hawks skated a lineup filled with mostly NHL players against St. Louis on Saturday night.
And they didn’t disappoint the crowd at the United Center.
Joel Edmundson scored the only goal of the opening period, giving the Blues a 1-0 lead. But answered with a Marian Hossa goal in the second and goals by Patrick Kane and Duncan Keith in the third as the Hawks ran away with a 3-1 victory.
Corey Crawford played the entire game, stopping 20 of 21 in the win.
Kyle Baun got some run with the stars and looked good once again, skating more than 14 minutes. One night after posting a two-goal effort in Montreal, Baun led the Blackhawks with four hits and added one takeaway on the night.
Among the four other Hawks with four hits in the game were Vince Hinostroza, Ryan Hartman, Brent Seabrook and Brandon Mashinter. Seabrook also led the team with three blocked shots.
Keith and Hossa had two points each; it was the first preseason action for Keith.
