Blackhawks deep-sixed

The Blackhawks were supposed to go to Colorado to get well Tuesday — kind of like a visit to The Magic Mountain. But instead things only got worse.

The Hawks scored first, to open the second period, but then gave up two quick ones. Patrick Kane stopped the bleeding with a backhand, but the third period saw the Avalanche bury the Hawks with three goals, the last an empty-netter. It was the Hawks' sixth straight loss, which of course means they remain winless four games into the demanding nine-game road trip they have to open the second half after the all-star game.

The disturbing thing, though, looking at the so-called highlights, was that all of Colorado's first three goals came on sloppy turnovers. Points off turnovers isn't usually a statistic kept in hockey, but the Hawks are making an unfortunate case for it.
