After suffering their first two regulation losses of the season against Colorado and Edmonton on March 8 and 10, the Blackhawks embarked on a four-game roadtrip that took them to every time zone in the continental U.S. Jonathan Toews and co. looked ready to put that two-game slide in the rear-view mirror, defeating their first three opponents by a combined score of 15-4, but couldn't hold off the Ducks and fell 4-2.

The goal, which would've been attributed to Bollig, was disallowed after a review from officials. "It's frustrating, considering we thought we were looking at a 3-1 lead at one point," Toews said. "We have to keep working and doing the right things. We played good enough to win, but made a few mistakes in the last five minutes, and they made us pay for it." (Photo by Jeff Gross/Getty Images)
