On their third power play of the evening, with just a single shot on goal on the man-advantage, the Blackhawks earned 17 seconds of five-on-three after a Washington tripping call. And the Blackhawks made the Capitals pay for it dearly by drilling home three goals in a matter of 34 seconds!

The first goal of the trio was a power-play goal for Alex DeBrincat (15) assisted by Patrick Kane. The beauty of a cross-ice pass was assist No. 700 for Patrick Kane.
Phillip Kurashev (1) and MacKenzie Entwistle (3) each scored goals before the fun was over, making it 3-1 Blackhawks late in the second period at the United Center. To say the crowd was pumped would be an understatement:

When was the last time the Blackhawks pulled off such a feat you ask?
It's officially a 34-second span for those 3 goals. That's tied for 23rd all-time.
The 2016-17 #Blackhawks also pulled this off. The goals came from Jonathan Toews, Richard Panik and Artemi Panarin on March 19, 2017 against Colorado.
