Boden, Myers preview road trip
Chris voting with CSN Chicago -- -- Blackhawks insider Tracey Myers whose bag is -- she's ready to go and does so far so good on the road for this team so far this season. I think at six -- know we'll know even more about this team when they come back in a couple of weeks. No there's no doubt I mean is this is a pretty. Substantial road trip six games almost fourteen days and is married hostess said they'll find out a lot about where they are. What's his road trip is done but obviously the Blackhawks as far as. They started off that for sport games and narrowed up some very successful and it wanna just repeat that whatever -- -- it was a four lines rolling it gives everybody supporting each other. Obviously Corey Crawford to work so whatever they get on his first four games obviously -- -- get as much as possible. And the contributions have come across the board but you see in the stat line or not and that kind of dovetails into what they're doing on the penalty kill and one among the bottom five in the league last year. And now they're ranked second as they hit the road against Minnesota and the key to this is getting some of it the depth guys to contribute and really. Take the penalty kill by the horns that we see that so far. Absolutely you've got guys like Michael -- -- and Marcus Kruger never really making a name for themselves on the penalty penalty killing Obama talked about it obviously they want it. Bring more on the offensive side of the game they both want to -- should be that way but right now. Their biggest contributions have been on this penalty kill 22 of 23 through these first six games tremendous test against Detroit the other night where they had -- -- -- in the second period alone. And that you know what the scoring will come but says there's no doubt these guys -- obviously I'm. Contributing right now and speaking of trying to put points on the board then making other contributions -- inside his yet -- -- and Daniel Carcillo went down. And side got on the top line and -- Quenneville -- question about that whether. That role might be in jeopardy for side but he doesn't seem -- to pull the trigger on that yet. And knowing. You know obviously when you see anybody get an opportunity on that top line you wanna think okay here with hosts in taking got to be doing something but let's keep a couple things in mind personally still only twenty years old. And is still told us sometimes judging on production isn't the best way of doing it as he told us he's not seen you do anything wrong. That's stuff will come and obviously just keep doing what he's doing and -- -- these -- -- it is it is still need for him. And the real quick update on Michael -- -- doesn't appear to be seeking -- no Dutch coach -- just told stated day. Lower body sounds like he will be on the ice tomorrow which obviously as a good sign -- right -- enjoy the trip we'll see when you get back right. Long time coming Alfie in awhile I Tracey Myers isn't gonna come Blackhawks insider joining us.
