Jan. 2: N.Y. Rangers 4, Blackhawks 0

Ouch. After pulling out two close wins, the Blackhawks were spanked by a feisty Rangers team. New York goaltender Henrik Lundqvist earned the shutout, his second of the season. Scuffling Corey Crawford was again yanked by Coach Q after allowing three goals in 29 minutes in favor of Ray Emery. With the loss, the Hawks' lead over St. Louis in the Central Division dwindled to two points. RECORD: 22-12-3
