Saad opened the scoring just 53 seconds in when he backhanded a rolling puck from the left circle, and the rising shot slipped past Hutchinson’s right elbow. The Jets came on as the period progressed and tested Crawford with some prime chances. Bogosian tied it at 1 midway through the first on a low screened shot from inside the blue line after taking a feed from Ladd. Winnipeg’s Adam Lowry was in front of the crease as the puck slipped under Crawford’s pads. Following a scoreless and scrappy second period, the Jets came out strong in early in the third. Little’s power-play goal, set up by Bogosian’s slick pass, put the Jets ahead 2-1 at 9:31 of the third. Thorburn, at the edge of the crease, tipped in Lowry’s feed from the top of the slot 28 seconds later. Teravainen picked up a loose puck made it 3-2 with 7:17 left on a shot from the slot. With Crawford on the bench for an extra attacker, Ladd scored into an empty with 29 seconds to seal the win.

Carcillo said Saturday his intent was not injure Perreault and hoped the Jets player would be OK. “I was just trying to knock him off, you know?” said Carcillo, who hadn’t heard from the NHL prior to speaking to the media Saturday. “I didn’t think it was very, like, malicious or anything. “It was just kind of a hockey play and it was at the end of a shift. I must have just caught him between some padding. I’ve been hit there before, too. You know it hurts.” Jets coach Paul Maurice had a different opinion of the play. “It was a vicious crosscheck to an unsuspecting player,” Maurice said Friday. Carcillo was last suspended in the playoffs last season when he elbowed a linesman in the face while Carcillo was being restrained. source: http://espn.go.com/chicago/nhl/story/_/id/12185159/daniel-carcillo-chicago-blackhawks-offered-person-hearing-crosscheck-mathieu-perreault-winnipeg-jets

They dropped a 5-1 decision at home to the Jets, were blanked 2-0 at Colorado and were the victims of a 5-2 defeat to the lowly Edmonton Oilers.

However, during that cold spell, they were scoring just 0.68 goals to each goal their opponents scored when both teams were at full strength. High-level teams like the Blackhawks can normally overcome the occasional slow start because they have so much firepower with superstars such as Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews, Patrick Sharp and Duncan Keith in the lineup. However, even the best teams have problems when they get outscored consistently in the first period. Andy Devlin/Getty Images The Blackhawks were outscored 16-7 in the first periods during that eight-game stretch, and it explains why they had so much trouble against the likes of the Avs and Oilers.
