Blackhawks 4, Coyotes 3 (OT) — Three Stars, Key Takeaways

As a reminder: the Coyotes’ last road win was in Carolina — on Nov. 23! A 16-game winless streak away from their quaint barn in the desert is how they’re hanging out with the Blackhawks in the low-rent district of the Central Division. And, like the Blackhawks’ last game on Tuesday night (against another equally bad team from Anaheim), Chicago dominated this game but couldn’t close the deal when they had opportunities.

This game could have easily been a two or three-goal lead for the Blackhawks after two periods; they were out-shooting the Coyotes 26-15. But the game was tied at two. Thankfully, Colin Blackwell came to the rescue and scored a go-ahead with 5:26 left in regulation. That looked great… until the Coyotes tied the game three minutes later. Caleb Jones had to win it in overtime.

Star 1: Seth Jones

Seth got the Blackhawks on the board in the first period with his sixth goal of the season. He also led the team with five shots on net through 40 minutes of hockey (of which he played 16:41). He has now scored in both Blackhawks’ games since the All-Star Game.

Star 2: Tyrese Ingram

I’m going on the record (again) saying these Black History Month jerseys that were designed by Ingram are soooooo much better than the Blackhawks’ Reverse Retro jerseys this year. In person these pop on the ice. Just an overall tremendous look. I’d like to see them in the regular rotation as a consideration for a third alternate at some point. Ingram is 19, from North Lawndale and is currently a student at Malcolm X College. You can read more about his design and see some more of the detail on the Blackhawks’ Instagram.

Star 3: Andreas Athanasiou

Athanasiou ended a five-game scoring drought with his second period marker. He was fast and active the entire night and had a couple solid opportunities. With the trade deadline three weeks from today, these are the kinds of performances we love to see with a packed press box. His 11th of the season tied the game at two. He also drove hard to the net to start the play that ended with Blackwell’s goal in the third period.

Takeaways

  • We’ll start with your evening “who was in the press box watching?” update. The answer: almost half of the league. Again.
  • Jaxson Stauber had a solid night. He wasn’t really tested until the third period but he held up well after the Coyotes took a 2-0 lead in the first period.
  • How about a Jake McCabe breakaway opportunity?
  • Max Domi had the prettiest pass of the night to set up what could have been a go-ahead goal for the Blackhawks… if he hadn’t rolled over Connor Ingram as the puck went in off Taylor Raddysh‘s stick.
