Chicago's nagging problem

07:42 AM ET 02.27 | For the most part, Chicago can look back at its first 60 games of the season with a sense of satisfaction. They lead the league in scoring and have positioned themselves to contend for the top seed in the Western Conference over the final 22 games. But one statistic has gnawed at them throughout the season and over the Olympic break: their losses in overtimes or shootouts. That number sits at an NHL-high 14 entering their game Thursday against the Rangers at Madison Square Garden. That's 14 points left on the ice and 14 chances to become the pacesetters in the West rather than be three points behind the conference-leading Ducks. "We can't get that extra point, which could be crucial the next couple of games," winger Bryan Bickell said Wednesday. "We get into OT, we need to bear down."

Every time I see it, I'm reminded of "The Gong Show" episode where everyone sang a wheels off version of "Feelings".

No one pitys the Hawks, the way things are going lately it's not their year anyway. Surprised they have more SO than the Wings who seem to be in one every other night.

I hate when you fogies talk about stuff I wasn't around for. You don't see me bragging about all the cool stuff we're gonna get when you grey hairs are long since expired, do ya?

LOL - You're a Leafs fan Danny. All you're going to get is disappointed. :)

My nagging problem starts when I head to the beer fridge for the 3rd time on a weekday after work.....

"That's the 3rd time you've been there today! Wasn't 2 enough?....etc"

Could be worse. You could be giving up two points.
