Richard Panik's line, with Dennis Rasmussen and Marcus Kruger, has impressed coach Joel Quenneville with their two-way play.

"They're responsible in ways," Quenneville said. "You have two guys who can take faceoffs. We use them in our own end a lot. Sometimes we’ve been matching them up against top lines and so they get some assignments as well and if they can outscore that group it's a real plus for us. But they spend some zone time, they get good cycles shifts and they've all been managing the puck well." Panik had the game-winning goal Tuesday versus Ottawa. He has two goals and one assist in the last four outings.

Richard Panik netted his 12th point of the season during Tuesday's 4-0 win over Arizona.

Richard Panik scored a goal in regulation and in the shootout during Chicago's 2-1 win over the Florida Panthers.

After Artemi Panarin scored in the second round of the shootout, Panik iced the game in the next round. The Hawks forward has seven goals and 11 points in 24 games this season, but this was his first maker since Oct. 22 and it ended a 13-game pointless drought.
