Nick Schmaltz a ‘different Schmaltzy’ during second stint with Blackhawks

It looked as if Nick Schmaltz had given the Hawks the lead.

The crowd erupted, the goal horn began to sound and the light boards that surround the United Center started flashing.

But Schmaltz hadn’t scored. His shot after a drive from the right circle hit Lightning goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy and went off the far post instead of going in the net.
