The Blackhawks head to All-Star break sitting three points on top in the Central division. The break comes not a moment too soon as the team was pounded 5-0 on the road vs. the Carolina Hurricanes Tuesday night.

After winning 12-straight, Chicago has dropped three out of their last four contests and allowed 11 goals in the process. It doesn’t come as a surprise that the defending Stanley Cup champions limped to All-Star break as they recently played four games in three consecutive weeks (Jan. 3 – Jan. 22).

All-Stars Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews will represent the Blackhawks in Nashville this upcoming weekend in the NHL’s new 3-on-3 tournament format.

All-Star break leaderboard:

Patrick Kane leads in goals (30), assists (43) and points (73)

Artemi Panarin leads the rookie scoring race – 46 points

Corey Crawford leads in shutouts – 7
