Isaak Phillips will always remember the night of January 14, 2023. The young Blackhawks defenseman scored his first NHL goal during the second period of play during Saturday night's matchup with the Seattle Kraken.

Unfortunately for Phillips, the goal came after a dreadful first period of play by the Blackhawks. Dreadful actually may be putting it lightly. The Blackhawks gave up six goals during the first period and saw starting goaltender Petr Mrazek chased out of the net after facing just five shots while allowing four goals. He was replaced by Alex Stalock who allowed two additional goals during the first period.

Entering the second period with the Blackhawks trailing the Kraken by a score of 6-1, Isaak Phillips found twine for the first time in his young career.
