There are nine active players in the NHL today with at least 900 points: Daniel Alfredsson, Jason Arnott, Jarome Iginla, Jaromir Jagr, Nicklas Lidstrom, Teemu Selanne, Joe Thornton, Ray Whitney…
And now, Marian Hossa, who earned his 900th point on the last goal the Blackhawks would score tonight against the Blue Jackets.
Other milestones the Blackhawks would reach include:
- Patrick Sharp scored his 29th and 30th goals of the season. Not only does he now lead the Blackhawks in scoring, he has also reached the 30-goal plateau for the third time in his NHL career.
- Duncan Keith had a four-point night, a career high.
- The Blackhawks swept a Central Division rival in the regular season for the first time ever. Yes, ever. The last time the Blackhawks swept a division rival was the St. Louis Blues in the 1970-71 season, according to @PK9 (but, of course, it wasn’t the Central Division back then).
Andrew Shaw and Brent Seabrook scored the other two goals tonight. Rick Nash would ruin Corey Crawford‘s shutout bid in the third period, but by then the game wasn’t in doubt.
Jesus Christ, the Blue Jackets are terrible.
I leave you with this — Brandon Bollig getting into yet another dumbass fight, this time with Jared Boll. Whatever.
