9. Marc-Andre Fleury is not the issue for the Hawks

Fleury luckily got his first win in a Blackhawks uniform last night, and it was long overdue. The Blackhawks’ big offseason addition in goal had struggled in his first few games, but it really was not his fault completely. Luckily for the Hawks, Fleury no longer needs to sit and wait for a win, as last night saw him record 29 saves and a save percentage of .967 for the Hawks along the way to the victory.

10. November will need to be a big month for the team.

With how awful October was for this team, the Blackhawks cannot afford to follow that up with yet another bad month of hockey. Considering there are only 12 games the best record the Blackhawks finish with is 12-7-2, but that probably is not in the realm of possibility as to think the Blackhawks are going to win all of their games is a bit of a stretch.

"It is a tough day to be a fan of the Chicago Blackhawks"

The team is just going to have to take things one game at a time and try and forget about the fact that they are already down in the standings so drastically. Next up on the schedule is the Carolina Hurricanes on Wednesday!
