NHL: Chicago Blackhawks at Columbus Blue Jackets Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

Corey Crawford made 37 saves and Patrick Kane had three points to lead the Blackhawks to a 4-1 win over the Blue Jackets on Saturday in Columbus. The Blackhawks host the Lightning on Sunday in the second half of a back-to-back.

Elsewhere in Chicago professional sports, the Bulls dropped their home opener 118-116 to the Pistons on Saturday to fall to 0-2 to start their season. The Bears and Fire will be in action Sunday with the Bears hosting the Patriots and the Fire visiting Atlanta United FC.

To address some comments from Saturday’s MBS post: Articles from The Athletic and other news media publications with paywalls will always be linked in MBS. This series is meant to give readers the latest news and information around the hockey world. Some of the best journalism on this sport is done by writers from publications with paywalls. Subscriptions are normally less than $5 a month, which can be easily paid for by cutting back one time you could out to eat or drink out on the town. It’s well worth it.
