Taking a closer look at how the Chicago Blackhawks have fared in recent season openers.

It’s finally time for hockey in Chicago. We have spent a lot of time tracking dark horse players to succeed, and what kind of impact Patrick Kane can have this season. Now, it’s time to take a step back.

The Chicago Blackhawks have lost the season opener 3 times in the last 6 seasons. Losing the first game does not doom your season. Although, it probably should be seen as a wakeup call.

Throughout the Chicago Blackhawks’ history, the first game of the season has been interesting. Whether it be who scores first, or what the outcome is, the first game is fun to watch. However, sometimes the game does not represent what is to come that season.

Let’s start with the first game of the season from 2014-15 and end with last Friday’s game against Philadelphia.
