* Shout out to referee Dan O’Rourke, who made that terrible no-goal call on the Blue Jackets in the second period. He ruled that Nick Foligno had made “incidental contact” with Corey Crawford beforehand. Oh. Okay, then.

This was the worst game the Blackhawks have played all season. Fortunately for them, they were playing the Blue Jackets at their Blue Jacketiest. What other team could turn a four-minute power play into a 4-on-3 penalty kill? (I ask you, because I honestly do not know. Jesus, the Blue Jackets are terrible — though, really, they’re less terrible than last season.)

But no matter how they played, they’ve made it to 5-0, which ties the best start in Blackhawks history (the record was set in — you guessed it — the 1972-73 season).

Now let’s all watch Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews make the Blue Jackets look stupid with what would become the game-winning goal.

    Thanks for starting with the no-goal call. That’s exactly what I came here looking for info on. You know, with the way the Blackhawks have been playing, our strength in shootouts and the fact that it’s the Bluejackets, I’m pretty sure we would have won had that goal been allowed. But jeez I wish we knew for sure.

    OH WELL, IT’S A WIN. I feel quite happy just taking the win and not going back and watching the game, though.
