Blackhawks vs. Blue Jackets game thread: Part 2

The Hawks find themselves down a goal after the first period, despite dominant play for the vast majority of the frame.

Hockey's a funny thing sometimes. The Blackhawks spent the majority of the first quarter dominating the Columbus Blue Jackets, putting constant pressure on Sergei Bobrovsky. Despite this, and the fact that the final shot count in the first came in at 15-3 for the Hawks, the Blue Jackets actually lead 1-0. The goal scorer for Columbus? Former Hawk Jack Skille.

We'll just chalk that one up to the Blackhawks having a little bit of fun with their opponent before hitting the next gear. At least that's the hope here. Of course, if they continue that first quarter pace, they'll leave the Blue Jackets in the dust. Go Hawks.
