Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks had leads of 1-0 and 2-1 but in the end they couldn’t hold them as the Columbus Blue Jackets helped the Tank Crowd with their 3-2 win over the Blackhawks in Columbus last night.
If you want to know where everything went terribly wrong, you can point to the fact that when the Chicago Blackhawks had scored first in the past few years they had only lost 8 games, and in the past 14 games when they have scored first they have lost 8 games.
It’s amazing how quickly things have fallen apart for the Chicago Blackhawks, and everytime you think they have momentum going in the right direction you get slapped with a big dose of reality.
The other thing is that the deflating goal against is at an all-time high this year, and last night was no exception. The fact that Anton Forsberg and Jeff Glass have been holding down the fort for what seems like most of the season can almost drive you to drink on a nightly basis.
There are a lot of things that can change for next year, and it all begins with #50 being healthy. Crawford really was having a Vezina Trophy worthy season before he went down to injury and ended up never being seen again except for one press conference.
