The Blackhawks were able to squeak out a victory in a shootout in Dallas Thursday night, and now they kick off their home schedule against a team many believe to be the worst team in the NHL entering the season.
The Blackhawks were plagued by a sluggish 2 periods in Dallas and they frantically played a very solid 3rd period which was a problem for much of the season last year not being able to put together a full 60 minute game. Tonight is the home opener for the Blackhawks so one would expect a spirited effort by the Blackhawks.
The Sabres lost Thursday night 3-1 to the Hurricanes in Raleigh and will be in the race for the #1 pick and McDavid instead of worrying about winning hockey games this season. The Sabres have a great fan base but they sure haven’t had much to cheer about especially after Ryan Miller was shipped out to St. Louis before the trade deadline last season.
