The Blackhawks were blanked by the Anaheim Ducks on Thursday night in California, 4-0. 

A three-goal second period for Anaheim proved to be the difference as Chicago couldn't solve Ducks netminder Lukas Dostal in goal the loss.


  • For the second straight game, a 3-0 deficit in the second period alone was the difference in the game overall for Chicago.
  • Arvid Soderblom started for the fifth time in the last 10 games as he a Petr Mrazek have been trading crease duties on a nearly nightly basis throughout the month of March. 
  • Seth Jones led Chicago with 24:31 in ice time and five shots on goal in the defeat. 
  • Jarred Tinordi drew back into the lineup in place of injured forward Colin Blackwell (upper body) who did not play after being injured late in Tuesday's contest in LA. Chicago played with 11 forwards and seven defenseman during the game. 


  • "Just frustrating. We didn't execute well enough. Obviously penalties set us back a little bit until we feel like we got a little momentum. We didn't hang on to parks. We didn't create enough chances. Just not good enough." - Jaycob Megna on Chicago's performance
  • "Sometimes we just do things without a rhyme or reason we're not on the same page and just you try to make plays but hockey's a funny game, especially in the NHL. A lot of teams right now you win because you're all on the same page, you keep it simple., you do the same thing over and over again and just kind of grind it out. I think you look at a team like LA that's exactly what they did. I thought Anaheim did that tonight and we took too many penalties and they made it count. Sometimes when you try too hard to make plays, things happen and usually goes the other way. So sometimes you just gotta relax a little bit." - Tyler Johnson on loss in Anaheim
  • "We got going as the first period went on, not bad, got skating a little bit, but second period, for whatever reason, I thought [we were] just flat. We didn't have anything, early in the period and they had the puck again, most of the time. And so again, we let the opponent be harder than us. That's what we tried to talk about a work on in practice in certain areas and it kind of came back on us again today. And then, you know, frustration set in and obviously penalties whether they're weak or strong calls, they're still penalties and we got stung on the last goal on that one." - Head coach Luke Richardson on shutout loss.
