Three Blackhawks hit the ice today ahead of the IIHF World Championships when Patrick Kane, Alex DeBrincat and Team USA faced Dominik Kahun and Germany in a pre-tournament contest.

With the game tied at one just over 15 minutes into the opening frame, Kahun was the first Hawks skater to get on the board when he jammed a puck past Corey Schneider after being left unattended in front of the net on a bit of a broken play.

The Americans knotted the game up in the second period, which set up Alex DeBrincat for the game-winning goal. Four minutes into the third, the Cat walked to the top of the right circle and fired a wrister that found its way through the German netminder.
