RAPID REACTION: If you like goals, there were plenty of them in this one. Chicago was led by Alex DeBrincat's three-goal, five-point night as they downed Ottawa 8-7 in a wild one at the United Center. With the victory, Chicago pulled within one point of the final Wild Card spot in the West.

The Senators took an early lead as Bobby Ryan spun around in the slot and buried a shot past Collin Delia on the power play at 2:06 of the first period.

MONDAY MAILBAG: Kane for the Hart?

Adam Burish answers fan submitted questions as part of blackhawks.com's Mailbag series

by Adam Burish / blackhawks.com

On select Mondays throughout the 2018-19 season, blackhawks.com will have answers to some fan-submitted questions. This week, Stanley Cup champion turned broadcaster Adam Burish fields several questions, including on dealing with confrontations in a locker room and whether or not Patrick Kane should be considered for the Hart Trophy.

1. The team spends a lot of time together, so how do y'all deal with confrontation towards certain aspects of the game such as losing a game? - Bethany from Texas

You're right, Bethany. You spend as much time with your teammates as you do with your family during the season so you create a really strong bond. That allows guys to be open and honest with each other and really trust each other. When things don't go well, guys talk about it. Guys get upset about things, they get into it with each other sometimes and that's all positive and part of being a great team.

RECAP: Blue Jackets 5, Blackhawks 2

Patrick Kane's two-point night wasn't enough as the Blackhawks fell to Columbus 5-2

by Austin Siegel / blackhawks.com

RAPID REACTION: Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews both found the back of the net, but the Blackhawks fell the Blue Jackets 5-2 on Saturday night in Chicago.

Columbus got on the board first courtesy of a Pierre-Luc Dubois tally, before Patrick Kane made sure extending his point streak to 17 games would be a drama-free affair. His first period goal came off a beautiful pass from Alex DeBrincat, who found Kane in the circle where #88 could pick his spot and fire home his 35th goal of the season past Sergei Bobrovsky.

The Blue Jackets would add two more in the first period, as goals from Artemi Panarin and Cam Atkinson extended the Columbus lead to 3-1.

Cam Ward made 25 saves against Columbus. The former Conn Smythe Trophy winner entered Saturday night's game with five straight wins, including three performances in which he turned away 40 shots or more. In a gutsy performance against the Blue Jackets, Ward made a series of highlight reel saves to keep Chicago in the game.

The Blackhawks second goal of the game came late in the second period, a magnificently-worked team goal that began on Patrick Kane's stick before Erik Gustafsson found Jonathan Toews with a pass from behind the net. The Captain did the rest as the Blackhawks trimmed the deficit to 3-2 heading into the third.

FEATURE: Koekkoek settling in nicely with Blackhawks

The Blackhawks acquired the defenseman from Tampa Bay in January and the organization has been impressed with his play

by Chris Wescott / blackhawks.com

Jeremy Colliton didn't hesitate or have to gather his thoughts when asked about his newest defender. He was ready to talk about him.

"Yeah, he's been a really nice surprise for us," he said.

The Blackhawks head coach has enjoyed having Slater Koekkoek on the roster since he arrived from Tampa via trade back on Jan. 11. Chicago parted with Jan Rutta and a seventh-round pick and received the 24-year-old blueliner and a fifth.

The acquisition of Koekkoek has flown under the radar with the current trade talk of the town centering around Dylan Strome's production. Since being acquired from Arizona on Nov. 25, Strome has compiled 11 goals and 20 assists for 31 points in 34 games.

Koekkoek's contributions may not show up on the stat sheet as loudly as Strome's, but the 10th-overall pick in 2012 has made an impression of his own.
