I thought the phrase was “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas”? Well in Minnesota on Tuesday night the Blackhawks looked like they were still in a Vegas state of mind. It was apparent from the opening draw when the Wild came out flying on route to a convincing 3-0 win. After being shut out on Saturday night in San Jose, one would think there would be some kind of jump from a “rested” Hawks squad. Instead they come out and get shut out in back to back game for the first time since October 2006. That’s right before Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews were on the scene. But wait there’s more. The second period saw the Hawks allow 24 shots in a single period. This was the first time all season that this was the case. A lot of questions will be asked after this one.
