The Blackhawks have been looking for elusive road victories this season. Their starts, they’ve said, have usually been their culprit.
On Saturday they got the start and the finish.
Considering the turnover the Blackhawks went through this offseason, some stumbling was to be expected.
The Blackhawks were close to getting a point, and every one of them helps with as inconsistent as they’ve been in this early season.
Artemi Panarin was coming off his great game the other night when he was asked why things are working so well on that second line, especially with he and Patrick Kane.
Patrick Kane was named the NHL's first star of the week after recording nine points (four goals and five assists) in four games to help the Blackhawks pick up five out of a possible eight points.
