3 takeaways from the Chicago Blackhawks OT victory over the Winnipeg Jets

David Banks-USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Blackhawks pulled off a rare feat as they defeated the Winnipeg Jets.

The Hawks were 1-9 against the Jets over the last 10 matchups with Winnipeg out scoring Chicago 41-17.

Connor Bedard and Petr Mrazek made sure the Blackhawks would come out on top in a 2-1 overtime victory at the United Center.

Those two are part of three takeaways from the Chicago Blackhawks picking up two points in the standings.

Bedard provided all the offense.

The phenom continues to find new ways to amaze. This time it was two goals on five shots including the game winner.

Bedard's first goal came through sheer will. Connor Hellebuyck stopped two shot attempts by Bedard, but Connor was not going to be denied as he found the net off the second deflection.

Then he called game as he rifled a shot past Hellebuyck.

It was just another performance to add to his growing legend.

Mrazek was a wall in goal.

If Bedard is scoring and Mrazek is stopping shots, the Chicago Blackhawks have an excellent chance of winning. Thursday night was no exception.

Mrazek turned away 37 of 38 shots. His one slip up led to Winnipeg's only goal.

His performance in goal was needed after Arvid Soderblom melted down in the Hawks' last game. Mrazek is probably going to get more work as Soderblom works out his issues in practice. Thankfully he will get a day to rest before the Blackhawks take on Dallas.

Nothing is getting Lukas Reichel going.

Reichel appeared to have a breakout game against Colorado nearly ten days ago. The hope is that would get the struggling, yet talented, forward going.

It did not.

Reichel continued to be inconsistent and was once again demoted to the fourth line. He only registered 9:09 in ice time against the Jets. He had 7:58 against St. Louis in the previous game.

The hope was he would have more than seven points on the season. Head coach Luke Richardson is trying everything besides sending him down to Rockford. A trip to the AHL might be the only option left.
