Blackhawks win over Blue Jackets in OT; streak extended to 21

It may not have been Chicago's prettiest effort, but they still came away with the win.

The Blue Jackets were resting and ready to face the Blackhawks on Friday night. Chicago came home on the flip side of a back-to-back, having gotten a win in St. Louis last night.

Columbus has its share of injuries - the most recent occuring just today during morning skate, when Chicago native John Moore suffered an upper body injury. Defenseman Dalton Prout was called up from CBJ's AHL affiliate, the Springfield Falcons at midday. His flight was delayed and landed at O'Hare at 6:40pm - less than an hour til puck drop. He made it to the United Center in time to g...

Blackhawks Host Blue Jackets; Look to Extend Points Streak to 21 Games

CHI vs CBJ03/01/20137:30pm CST The streaking Chicago Blackhawks (17-0-3) square off against the eternally mismanaged Columbus Blue Jackets (5-12-3) for the second time in six days tonight in Chicago's United Center, and one would expect the Madhouse on Madison to be rocking after the Red, White, and Black's decisive 3-0 road victory over division rival St. Louis last night. Captain Jonathan Toews led off the scoring in last night's affair just twelve seconds into the game and added another tally early in the third for his first points since he posted a goal and an assist on February 17th against the LA Kings. With Chicago continuing to fire on all cylinde...

Blackhawks beat the Blues to extend streak to 20

It took just 12 seconds for the Blackhawks to show how good they are this season.

That's how long it took for Jonathan Toews to put in the first goal of the game, with assists from Brandon Saad and Marian Hossa.

The Blackhawks would go on to notch their third shut out of the season, taking the win 3-0 in St. Louis. In an unusual circumstance, Chicago goalie Corey Crawford played just one period - the first - before Ray Emery took the net for the rest of the game. As Crawford was on the ice for the GWG, he is credited with the win; but neither goalie was credited with a shut out.

Crawford is reported to have an "upper body injury" that is &quo...

19 and counting: Chicago extends The Streak

When the Oilers rolled into town, the Blackhawks remembered last season: Edmonton embarassing Chicago 9-2 and again 8-4, both on Rexall Place ice, and a 4-3 loss on United Center ice.

But even the hot young powerhouses of the up-n-coming Oilers couldn't hold the Blackhawks back from a win, and Edmonton was the one taking a 3-2 loss at the end of the night.

Edmonton's Jeff Petry opened the scoring with a shorthanded goal 4:28 into the first; the Blackhawks replied barely a minute later with a beauty of a Patrick Kane backhand on the power play. The game would remain tied 1-1 until late in the second, when rookie Nail Yakupov put one in to give the Oiler...

Blackhawks Look to End Homestand with Win Against Oilers

CHI vs EDM02/25/20137:30pm CST 

The Chicago Blackhawks (15-0-3) look to extend their eighteen game points streak against the Edmonton Oilers (7-7-3) on home ice tonight. It’s the first of three meetings between the two Western Conference squads in this shortened season.

The Blackhawks, who, almost inconceivably, have yet to yield a regulation loss through their first 18 games, are playing in the second half of their fourth back-to-back this season after dispatching the perennially challenged Columbus Blue Jackets 1-0 last night. Despite putting forth one of their weakest efforts of the season, the Hawks were able to walk away with yet another victory on the strength of goa...

Hawks shutout Blue Jackets 1-0

 

While Hollywood was celebrating its cinematic achievements, Chicago was celebrating another Blackhawks regulation victory. The win was not a masterpiece but, it was a win that garnered the Hawks two more points. It continued their incredible run of points and separation from the rest of the pack. Their record now goes to 15-0-3.

If this game were a movie, it could easily be called The Return of the Shutout Man. Corey Crawford was easily the best Hawk on the ice and turned in his second shutout of this abbreviated season. Crawford stopped all 28 shots that came his way. He did get support from his co-stars. 

Most noticeably on defense was Nik Hjalmarsson who c...

The best vs the worst: Columbus Blue Jackets at Chicago Blackhawks

If the Blackhawks set a new league record on Friday night, why not extend the record a little further?

Sunday night's game will be a meeting of the best and the worst in the league. Columbus comes in to town on the tail end of a back-to-back, having lost to St. Louis 2-1 on Saturday night. The Blue Jackets are 5-11-2, having just 12 points to show for the season thus far. With Washington's win this weekend, Columbus fell to last place.

Despite CBJ's struggles, however, the team should never be fully discounted. In 10 of their 18 games, Columbus has lost by just one goal, and they've gone to the shootout twice. They have also on rare occasion sh...
