Winger Viktor Stalberg had two goals, but 2011 second-round pick Brandon Saad stole the show, notching the game-winner and setting up Stalberg’s first goal with a nifty pass. The 18-year-old played with Jonathan Toews and Stalberg in the third period.
Saad and Alex Ovechkin collided in the second period, and the Capitals star fell to the ice. Capitals defenseman Danny Richmond (an ex-Hawk and area native) took exception and went after Saad. Jamal Mayers didn’t like that and quickly dispatched Richmond.
“There’s always a surprise or two at camp. He’s somebody we talk about regularly. If he keeps doing that every day, we’ll probably talk about him the next day.” — coach Joel Quenneville on Saad, who’s expected to remain with the Hawks through Sunday’s game against the Detroit Red Wings
