Blackhawks PGL on Hawks' start to the season
For the first time since the 199697. Campaign the Blackhawks are 20 and 02 start the year. And Steve they went out last and they beat the two teams that were in the Western Conference finals a year ago include defending Stanley Cup chance. Two pretty good goaltenders -- -- you couldn't have written this script any better attitude very tough opponents and when you think about it the very realistically could come off this road trip being known to but you mentioned they went in and be Jonathan Quick one of the best goaltenders in the NHL and his attorney Stanley Cup champion LA kings. And then they backed it up the next night in Phoenix with a guy who has really played them the last couple years Mike Smith in them up for six goals so that seemed to be fired on all cylinders and it's a good sign for boxing goaltending might be the one position that shows the most -- post lockout one guy that hasn't shown any rust. Coming back from that concussion. Marian Hossa two goals against Los Angeles. To the following night against Phoenix amazing is that we really wondered how he would respond remember he got knocked out in the playoffs early in the playoffs last year with that huge hit. From -- Torres. He wasn't the same for a little while we wondered how we would start this season well. Those are questions and certainly been answered emphatically by Marion -- unbelievable against LA and again negates that a Phoenix Coyotes just showing his strength whether it's on the puck along the boards and he's got one of the that's releases in the NHL. The only draw back on this trip Daniel Carcillo goes down probably out a month with a knee issue it will not required surgery and we'll see -- for the home opener Tuesday night on the west side against the blues.
