We keep on going from that.Tyler Motte and Richard Panik scored for Chicago (2-3-0), and Corey Crawford had 25 saves.The Blue Jackets (1-2-0) took the lead when the 19-year-old Werenski netted a wrist shot from the point during a power play at 9:10 in the first period. It was his team-leading second goal of the season, with Alexander Wennberg and Foligno credited with assists.The Blackhawks tied it up 2:29 into the second period when a shot by Jonathan Toews ricocheted off Bobrovskys pad and was put back by Motte, his first goal of the season.Columbus took advantage of the power play again at 4:36 of the second when Foligno tapped it in from in front of the net, with assists from Werenski and Cam Atkinson.Fourth-line center Karlsson got the Blue Jackets final goal with 6:16 left in the second when he tipped in a shot from David Savard through traffic.Panik pulled Chicago within one at 5:54 into the third period, popping in a goal from in front of the net off a pass from Gustav Forsling, but the Blacckhawks couldnt tie it.dddddddddddd.The Blackhawks have lost two straight.Even when it seems like were doing a good job, bounces go against us, Toews said. Were just a little shaky in some areas, so unfortunately another two goals we gave up in (penalty kill), its just not good enough. We deserve all the criticism. We just need to keep finding ways and go deep in really trying to dig ourselves out of this right now.Foligno greeted Bobrovsky at the end of the game with an embrace.Bob had been waiting a little while for that one, Foligno said. It was nice, just for him, too. Hes played outstanding the first two games for us, and it was nice to be able to reward him with a big win and a big hug.Game notes Columbus D Ryan Murray suffered what the team called an upper-body injury in the first period and did not return.
