Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks had a record breaking opening night on Thursday, and now the question is can we get another 10 tonight?

I know it’s a silly question, but that sure was fun watching the Blackhawks race up and down the ice and basically score at will against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The Chicago Blackhawks looked like a very slow small team when they were eliminated by the Nashville Predators last April, but on Thursday night they looked like a very fast big and very fast team as they cruised to victory.

One of those big fast guys was Brandon Saad, and as stated plenty of times in the past couple weeks.. It’s sure nice to have him back on the team.  The thing about Saad isn’t just his speed, but his drive to the net that you saw on his third goal of the game.

Saad just seems to do everything right on all 200 feet of the ice, but I know it was just one game but everything just felt right with Saad playing alongside Jonathan Toews.

The other reason to like the speed of the Blackhawks is it looks like Nick Schmaltz found another gear during the offseason.  I’m not sure it’s just that jump in your second season or training during the offseason, but Schmaltz was skating by Penguins like they were standing still.

Well, we get to see what they can do during game #2 at the United Center tonight! Can’t wait!
