The Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews got his 800th career point against the Jets.

15 seconds into the game, Jonathan Toews assists Dominik Kubalik‘s goal. That goal made it 1-0 Chicago. The Chicago Blackhawks have started off fast against the Jets this season. On their five game road stretch, they play them twice.

Toews has played well this season. He has 45 points in 55 games. The captain as played on a line with Kubalik for a while now. Those two have racked up points since the start of the new year.

It’s no surprise Toews got the point off of a Kubalik goal. He has made Kubalik a better player so far. Kubalik has a bright future with the Blackhawks. Playing with Toews has helped his transition to the NHL.

More from Blackhawk Up

After one period, the Blackhawks are winning 2-0. They’re just three points out of the playoffs. These next few games are very important. What helps them is they’ve played fewer games than everyone ahead of them.

They are tied in games and points with the Wild at 58. If the Blackhawks can sneak out a victory, they’ll be ahead of them too. The Wild play tonight too.  Hopefully, they will lose their game.

The Blackhawks have started off this road streak hot. They have to keep the pressure going though. It’s only one period in, the game is far from over.

It’s still very cool to see Toews get his 800th point against his hometown team. It reminds me of Patrick Kane‘s 900th point. Kane got his 900th point in Buffalo, New York.

Both players have hit milestone’s against the Jets this season. That’s ironic.
