Video: An unlikely source snaps Blackhawks scoring drought versus Predators

Dennis Rasmussen's first-ever playoff goal finally ended the Blackhawks' scoreless drought vs. Pekka Rinne as they take a 1-0 lead.

It took a while, 141 minutes and five seconds to be exact, for the Chicago Blackhawks to score a goal in this series with Nashville.

After being shut out in the first two games of this series, the Blackhawks opened up a lead in the second period of Game 3, finally snapping their goal drought as Dennis Rasmussen was able to beat Nashville goalie Pekka Rinne.

The Blackhawks had been denied earlier in the game, as Rinne made a desperation stick save on a strange bounce off the glass from a clearing attempt.

However, since the start of the second period, the Blackhawks have grabbed a two-goal lead. Rasmussen opened the scoring and Patrick Kane scored his first of the series about 10 minutes later on the power play.
