There are ebbs and flows throughout every NHL season, and while the Chicago Blackhawks are struggling right now as a whole, they still have players performing well … and not performing well

The Chicago Blackhawks are four games into their Circus Trip, and they have won two games and lost two games.  Breaking even is not all that bad, right?

But if you delve a little further, in two tilts the ’Hawks were unable to score (Winnipeg and Edmonton).  In another one (Vancouver), they were outplayed for two periods before turning it around in the third.  And in the best game of the trip so far (Calgary), they allowed their opponent back into the game in the second period, and had to pull out a last-minute goal in order to get the win.

It’s a long season, and this is obviously a rough stretch of it for the team overall.  But there are still a few individuals who are standing out.  Let’s take a look at who’s hot right now.
