Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! It took four weeks into the NHL season, but that’s all it took for a Chicago Blackhawks player to be named a Top 3 Star of the Week by the NHL. Of course this time it was Patrick Kane who was named a Top 3 Star multiple times last season especially in December when his line of Brad Richards and Kris Versteeg were red hot.
This year is different though, from the opening faceoff of the season Patrick Kane‘s line with Artem Anisimov and Artemi Panarin have been very special offensively. Kane is tied for the league lead in points (a spot he held when he broke his clavicle last season) and Panarin is leading all rookies in the point category as well.
Now the Chicago Blackhawks need some consistent production from the other 2 lines that make up the Top 3 for the Chicago Blackhawks. The lottery line with Jonathan Toews and Marian Hossa need to get away from being the top checking line in the NHL to one of the better scoring lines in the league. This should turn the corner if Joel Quenneville ever settles on one player to play the wing alongside the two Future Hall of Famers!
Consistency is the key for the Chicago Blackhawks offense and the only line providing that is Kanes! Here are some morning links to kick off your Tuesday morning.
