The Chicago Blackhawks and Vancouver Canucks are not best friends. Whenever they get together, the games tend to be really interesting with plenty of hits, extra stuff after the whistle and unpredictable results.

The Canucks had a 1-0 lead early in the third period, when the Blackhawks turned the offense up to 11. Chicago scored twice in nine seconds to suddenly take a 2-1 lead.

The first goal came from Andrew Shaw who tipped home a Patrick Kane a spinning, backhand pass at the 4:40 mark of the final frame.

The Blackhawks won the ensuing faceoff, but the Canucks stayed agressive on the puck. Chicago was able to get it out of their zone and Marcus Kruger picked up the loose puck in the neutral zone, skated into the Canucks' end and fired a quick shot through Roberto Luongo's legs at the 4:49 mark of the third.

The Blackhawks ended up hanging on to win 2-1.

You may recall the Blackhawks scored the game-tying and game-winning goals 17 seconds apart in the Stanley Cup-clinching game against the Boston Bruins in June. So this is kind of their thing.

Surprisingly, this isn't the fastest two goals in Blackhawks history. That record belongs to the 1931 club that scored twice within five seconds against the Philadelphia Quakers.
