The Blackhawks kicked off the weekend with an away game at Columbus, which they lost 3-2 after a nine-round shootout. It was Corey Crawford's first start after missing a couple weeks with a sprained ankle.

Kings down Blue Jackets 5-2

The LA Kings and the Columbus Blue Jackets meet for what could be termed an afternoon dislike. With an early afternoon tilt or the fact that both of the Kings trades courtesy of the Columbus Blue Jackets first with the Jeff Carter trade and then the Marian Gaborik traded ended with the Kings not the Jackets winning two Stanley Cups was the motivation for a feisty game early in the first period.

The scoring got started by the Blue Jackets with Drew Doughty in the box for interference when Tim Erixson was the recipient of a def...

Hawks gut the Blue Jackets 4-3

When one man goes down another needs to step up when several go down several need to step up and they certainly did. Stacey King, the Bulls broadcaster has a saying bring your “hard hat, lunch pal” game. Bring the blue collar work hard mentality and never quit. The Hawks had several candidates most notably the make shift line of Bickell, Regin and Morin who really stood out.
