Blackhawks vs. Blue Jackets game thread: Part 1

The Blackhawks visit Columbus, aiming to extend their recent dominance over the host Blue Jackets.

The Chicago Blackhawks are set to hit the road (technically the road has already been "hit") against the former division rival Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday night. They'll visit former teammate Jeremy Morin, who has already notched more points in a Columbus sweater than he did with the Blackhawks. More importantly, Duncan Keith and Corey Crawford both return to the lineup for Chicago. Keith returns from an illness that cost him a game and ignited a fear of the mumps epidemic spreading to Chicago, while Crawford returns from his last missed stretch due to stupidity and bad judgment (and also a lower body injury).

Sound off in the comments below, as the Hawks try and run their win streak against the Blue Jackets up to an absurd 14 games.
