The Blackhawks finally win a game in a 5-1 win against the Senators.
The Blackhawks went 0-7-2 to start the season which is not something you want (obviously). However, they got consistently better as the season went on and finally scored five goals in one game. The bounces went in their favor, and Marc-Andre Fleury looks to be back to form at the right time for this team. With a game against the Hurricanes tomorrow, this team will need to patch up on a few things.
The Blackhawks were dreadful on the rush yet again, allowing odd-man chances against that, if the opposition was better, would have resulted in a goal. This team has to find ways to be aggressive offensively, yet still aware of the potential rush to get back and defend. The Ottawa Senators are not a good team, yet they created chances and forced Fleury to make multiple grade-A saves.
However, the bounces finally went the Blackhawks’ way last night and Patrick Kane earned a four-point game. Here are my three takeaways from last night’s win:
- Bounces and Puck Luck… Finally
- Marc-Andre Fleury on Form
- Patrick Kane’s Memorable Return
