The comments section is open. Go say what you think. No big whoop.

We’ll give you some topics:

---- Corey Crawford keeps piling up wins even though he’s producing pretty mediocre work. Can the Blackhawks be a legitimate Cup contender with Crawford in net?

---- Patrick Kane still can’t seem to score some goals. Should Chicago be worried or is this just a phase, like growing a playoff mullet?

---- Antti Niemi didn’t get the win, but he’s been great this season. Where does he rank among the NHL’s most underrated goalies? (The guy has a ring, after all.)

---- How much of Viktor Stalberg’s success is sheer linemate luck? The Blackhawks probably don’t care because either way, he ended up with a goal and an assist tonight.

---- Chicago out-shot San Jose by the jarring margin of 40-24. Remember when the Sharks used to do that all the time?

Now go, talk amongst yourselves.
