Three takeaways from the Blue Jackets 4-3 loss to the Blackhawks

One: On the second night of back-to-back games, they came out from the first drop of the puck and had their legs. On the other hand, Chicago did not. That paid off less than two minutes into the game, as the Blue Jackets struck first. A fast start was a good sign. Two: It's been noticeable for the last two games. Jared Boll keeps other teams "honest", even when he doesn...
