The Chicago Blackhawks have the best record in the NHL right now and most likely will be the team to beat in the Western conference come playoff time. The Blue Jackets have not faced the Blackhawks yet this season, but will see them twice in 2014 – once at home and once away, like all Western conference teams.

The two teams met four times last season, and Columbus did not walk away with any wins. The Blackhawks won two games in regulation, one game in overtime, and one game in a shootout. Patrick Kane led the charge for the Hawks, in the four games played he registered four assists. Corey Crawford won three of the four games, and then back-up, Ray Emery, won one game for Chicago.

This season needs to be different, the Blue Jackets need to at least win one game against the reigning Stanley Cup Champions. Two wins would obviously be better though, so I am hoping for the best!
