07:32 AM ET 12.06 | Just about everything had been set up for the Blackhawks to author a comeback win Thursday night. Marian Hossa gave the Blackhawks a 3-2 lead on a power-play goal early in the third, but the Minnesota Wild scored twice in the final 5:39 to take a 4-3 victory at Xcel Energy Center. The Blackhawks are on a two-game losing streak for the first time this season. The losing isn't what really bothers the Blackhawks; how they lost these two, especially tonight's game, does. "We had an opportunity there, had a couple penalty kills off us and that's the differential," coach Joel Quenneville said. ... As for [Corey Crawford], who allowed four on 23 shots, Quenneville said, "he's got to be better." But it wasn't just Crawford on Thursday.

Any coach would say that of any goaltender under the circumstances. Doghouse??

Maybe the better team that night won.

The Wild were better last night, but they need to get consistent.

Speaking of being the better team, I thought the Pens had gave the best effort they have given in a long time. Loved the flow and tempo of the game. All without that Malkin bum and half the game without Dupuis.

Chicago's numbers so far have been incredible, 20-6-4. Crawford's? Not so much. Both his GAA & Sv% are middle of the pack on a great team. This must be Quennevile's way of telling Corey to get in line.

Does this mean he loses his room at the Playboy mansion?

I would say that Quinn is biting the hand that fed him the Cup, but it was only the Bruins afterall:)

Penguins with a not to shabby 20-9-1 themselves, but Fluery's numbers are pretty good.

How did Sid do:)

"Crawford enters Quenneville's doghouse"

I don't get it. How does telling a player he can do better put him in the coach's doghouse?

December 6, 2013  11:53 AM ET

But ... what do you expect from CSN (Chicago Silly News)?

LOL!

Va-Geno best get back. Sid is running away with the lead on points.

Burgh, I thought they did bring a good effort, but now Dupuis may be hurt. WTF? Fleury actually held it together with 40+ shots and one getting in by his own D-Man. Amazing.

Ship, Sid had three points.

A vain attempt to keep him from actually having to play for Team Canarduckia.
