Blue Jackets Vs. Blackhawks Score Update: Chicago Leads 2-1 After Two Periods

The Chicago Blackhawks are leading 2-1 over the Columbus Blue Jackets after two periods on Tuesday night following an eventful period. The game was scoreless after one period, but both sides came to life offensively in the second period at the United Center.

The first goal of the game was scored by Chicago, as center Dave Bolland scored his tenth goal of the season to put the Blackhawks ahead. Columbus responded just a couple of minutes later with a goal of its own to tie things up at one, as R.J. Umberger put up his seventh goal of the season. That tie only lasted a few minutes, though, as Viktor Stalberg put Chicago back in front with a goal. It was his tenth goal of the season.

After Columbus had a clear shot advantage in the first period, things were much more even in the second. Neither club has been able to take advantage of a power play thus far; Chicago has had two of them, while Columbus has had four.
