The Blackhawks are now 0-3-1, and started the home part of their season off on the wrong foot, falling to the Islanders 4-1 on Tuesday night at the United Center. At least — like a CM Punk knee to the face — it felt quick. The Blackhawks again failed to win a game, but also failed to lead for a single second — another thing they haven’t...
