No reward for domination

The Blackhawks would probably be ahead by four or five against a lot of goalies, but their domination has been countered by Mike Smith - some by skill, others by some fortunate bounces. Each team's killed off a penalty.

Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, and Patrick Sharp have all been put on separate lines by Joel Quenneville, in addition to the Bryan Bickell-Dave Bolland-Michael Frolik trio, but all four have threatened and spent a majority of their time in the 'Yotes end. Corey Crawford's only been tested a couple of times, but made a pair of quick saves.

Andrew Shaw has been extremely active and a factor on every shift in his return from a three-game suspension, and was denied at the doorstep off a perfect cross-ice feed from Kane on a rush.

Shots were 16-2 in favor of the Blackhawks.

Michael Jordan's in the house, and was introduced with Bobby Hull and Stan Mikita to a standing ovation.
