Highlights: Blackhawks win 4-2 in Teuvo Teravainen debut

By Chris Kuc

The smattering of applause in pregame warm-ups turned into full-blown cheers when Teuvo Teravainen stepped on the ice for his first shift in the NHL.

The flashy Finnish center made his highly anticipated debut during the Blackhawks’ 4-2 victory over the Stars on Tuesday night at the United Center. The crowd of 21,493 had plenty of oohs and aahs for Teravainen while scrutinizing every stride the 19-year-old took.

While the future — and some of the present — was on display, the Hawks still had some business to do as they continued their battle for playoff positioning in the Central Division.

Andrew Shaw and Duncan Keith each had a goal and an assist, Kris Versteeg and Marian Hossa scored and Patrick Sharp added two assists as the Hawks remained six points back of the first-place Blues in the division.

Corey Crawford put together a strong effort in goal for the Hawks to record the victory and conclude a four-game homestand on a positive note. Crawford made 25 saves, allowing two Ryan Garbutt scores as the Stars suffered a big blow to their postseason hopes with their fifth loss in the last seven games. Kari Lehtonen took the loss while playing on consecutive nights.

    Any chance you could post the Wiedeman call of the Bollig fight? I was driving the truck in Oklahoma listening on the iPhone app grinning ear to ear with excitement. No one calls a fight like John!!!
