Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks blew out the Toronto Maple Leafs last night, and it really was never a game in doubt which was exactly what the doctor ordered after three straight rough outings by the Hawks at the United Center.

Some interesting milestones and stats did come out of the game.  The biggest milestone had to be that Patrick Kane became just the 7th player in franchise history to hit the 400 assists plateau.  It is kind of surprising that the list is that short after 85 plus years of playing NHL hockey but it is, and here are the members of the 400 assist club.

Another player hitting a milestone was Niklas Hjalmarsson who hit the 100 assist mark on Teuvo Teravainen goal.  Some other interesting stats include the fact the Patrick Kane has 4 career 4 point nights and three of them have been this year with two of them being against the Toronto Maple Leafs.  Brent Seabrook is now 5th all-time in goals scored by a defenseman, and back to assists, Kane has assisted on 17 of the 19 Artemi Panarin goals this year.

One thing is for sure this is not how Toronto’s coach Mike Babcock planned for this season to go as the Maple Leafs coach.  One would wonder if he’d rather be in Detroit coaching Dylan Larkin than having this hot seat in Toronto.  Anyways the Hawks blew out the Leafs and here are some morning links to kick off you Tuesday morning.
