(Newser) – The Blackhawks flirted with misery last night before Jason Wiliams came to the rescue.  Heading into the third period, the Blackhawks led the Stars 3-1, but Dallas  battled back and scored 3 straight to take the lead.  That's when Williams took over, scoring the tying goal and then the game winner with just 20 seconds remaining.

The 5-4 Blackhawk victory was a great game for the fans, but not the type of battle the players like. "We're making these games a little harder on ourselves," said Williams.  "We'd like to learn how to play with the lead."
