Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The Chicago Blackhawks have won games by 10-1 in the month of October and they have lost 6-3 to the Colorado Avalanche.  After a month of the season gone, it’s hard to tell if this season will be another trick or a real treat to watch! 

After the first two games, I was very excited about the season to be honest! Not that I expected the Hawks to score 10 times a game, but I was hoping that they would be playing an up tempo kind of game that led to a lot of goals which to me is very exciting to watch during the regular season.

The other thing was the fast start by Jonathan Toews and Brandon Saad on the top line, made me feel like maybe all the Hawks Captain needed was having Saad back on the roster to find his game that had gone into a bit of a funk last season.  After a pretty good start, the Hawks Captain isn’t finding the scoresheet once again.

The Powerplay for the Blackhawks has been a trick for most of the past few seasons so that’s no big deal, but the possession and shot numbers have always tilted the Blackhawks way in the Joel Quenneville era yet this season even in the wins they have been in the Hawks favor.  One thing you can feel good about Saturday’s loss was the fact that the Hawks dominated most of the 2nd and all of the 3rd period, and Nick Schmaltz looks to be getting healthy each time he takes the ice.
