The Blackhawks entered the third period of Sunday's game up by one goal; a rather comforting stat for a team that's been undefeated this season when leading after 40 minutes of play.


Patrick Sharp had no explanation as to why the shootout, on which the Blackhawks struggled last season, is working so well during this one.


Despite getting shut out in back-to-back games for the first time since 2006, the Blackhawks aren't panicking.


Jonathan Toews did not skate this morning but he’s expected to play when the Blackhawks host the Colorado Avalanche Tuesday night at the United Center.
