The Blackhawks earned a win in the shootout Monday, and in the process, gave a point to Nashville. The Predators now sit just two points out of a playoff berth with 12 games remaining in their regular season schedule - three more of which will be against Chicago.
During the first and second periods, Chicago dominated most of the play, outshooting Nashville 27-11.
It was reflected on the score sheet as well. Brandon Saad put in the Blackhawks on the board with just 12 seconds left in the first period. Patrick Kane made it 2-0 with 7:50 left in the second.
In the third, however, the Blackhawks did what they've done a few too many times lately: instead of putt...

There is no better time to be thankful that all the armchair GMs aren't real GMs than directly after a tough loss right before the trade deadline.
Monday night on Twitter, as the Blackhawks walked out of a lackluster game with a 5-4 loss to the LA Kings, whom they had previously dominated earlier in the season, all the usual suggestions came out. So-and-so should go back to Rockford. So-and-so is dead weight this season and should be traded. (If he's such dead weight, who else is going to want him?) So-and-so isn't getting it done. In exchange, fans are looking for every high-profile player out there, future salary concerns be ignored.
Dustin Brown scored his twelfth goal of the season with under two minutes remaining to hand the Chicago Blackhawks (24-4-3) their fourth regulation loss of the season in a wild affair that saw the Blackhawks surrender three one-goal leads.
The victory put Los Angeles (18-12-2) ahead of the idle St. Louis Blues for sixth place in the crowded Western Conference race, and moved them within striking distance of division-leading Anaheim. The Kings currently sit ten points back of a suddenly struggling Ducks team with sixteen to play. With two of those remaining games coming against Anaheim, it’s not inconceivable to think that last year’s Stanley Cup Champio...
CHI @ ANA Game Recap1/20/13 Blackhawks Drown in the Duck Pond In a game that lived up to its hype the league leading Chicago Blackhawks fell 4-2 to the second place Anaheim Ducks who now trail the Windy City team by only 3 points in the Western Conference. The Ducks drew first blood with a quick goal by center Peter Holland less than 2 minutes into play. The Hawks were almost immediately sent to the penalty kill against the most successful power play unit in the league, but a fantastic short-handed goal via Jonathan Toews brought those first five minutes of heart attack to an end all tied up 1-1. After a very forgettable Blackhawk...
