83 Days Until The Blackhawks Season Opener

By Keith Schultz

We had so much fun doing our Countdown to Faceoff series last season that we decided to do it again.  In case you’re new to the series, we’ll do a roster preview as we count down the days until the Chicago Blackhawks  October 9th season opener against the Dallas Stars.

Good afternoon Blackhawks fans as you can tell by our title we don’t have any Blackhawks that have worn #83 in Blackhawks history.  Since we don’t have any Blackhawks player history to discuss and chronicle we will look back at Blackhawks All-Time Game Winning Goals.

  1. Steve Larmer-49
  2. Denis Savard-46
