Blackhawks forward Pius Suter had himself a day against the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday afternoon. After being scoreless through the first five games of the season, Pius Suter finally netted a few goals to start his NHL career on the right note.

It looks like the Chicago Blackhawks found a hidden gem in Pius Suter so far this season. Suter has been a reliable player in the top, and he has just now found his scoring touch for the ‘Hawks.

Suter and the Blackhawks struggled to score goals during their first few matchups, but that was not the case today. Scoring chances were plentiful for the ‘Hawks and especially for Pius Suter.

Similar to Dominik Kubalik a few games ago, once Suter got on the scoreboard once, there was no stopping him. This should not come as a surprise but Suter led the team with five shots on goal.

All the goals scored by Pius Suter during the Chicago Blackhawks’ six to two win over the Detroit Red Wings.

The first goal was assisted by Patrick Kane and Calvin de Haan.

The second goal came on the power play and was assisted by Mattias Janmark and Dominik Kubalik.

The third goal was assisted by DeBrincat and Keith.


Suter scored not only right in front of the net in a hardworking way, but he also showed that he can be a sniper and had a great goal to help ice the game during the third period. It takes a lot of confidence to shoot instead of passing the puck to Patrick Kane on the rush, and that is exactly what Suter did on the rush.

Chicago has seen a lot of different players score goals the past two games against Detroit. Hopefully, the team will continue their scoring ways thanks to the confidence boost the past two games have played.

The goaltending battle is far from over, but if the team can continue to put the puck in the back of the net, then the battle might be a little easier. Chicago’s next series will be a back to back against the Nashville Predators on Tuesday and Wednesday.
