After winning their game on Wednesday night, the Chicago Blackhawks have now made it through half of the season without losing a single game in regulation. That means, including last season, they have gotten a point (won or were tied at the end of regulation) in every regular season game since March 25, 2012. That’s a really long time.

We want to hear from you. What are some things that have happened since the last time the Blackhawks didn’t get a point that are different now?
