The Hawks have eliminated that ugly start to the month by reeling off 3 straight 6+ goals a night games.
The Blackhawks after today now have 6 players with 10 goals or more. What? That's unbelievable. (Kane, Sharp, Hossa, Toews, Saad and Shaw). Since Jonathan Toews has had difficulty of late filling the net, he can get credit for Patrick Sharp knocking one off of his body right into the net.
What was really amazing was that it was 7 different players that scored the 7 goals.
* Patrick Sharp remain's on fire. Since November 6th (19 games ago) He has 12G 11A. That's rackin' 'em up.
* I saw that Mike Kostka was scratched today. Not a healthy scratch either.
Really? After ONE game back? What's going on here? Hmm...
* Antti Raanta: Not doing bad at all in relief of an injured Corey Crawford.
* Patrick Kane: 17G 25A and 2nd in the league with 42 points.
December : 1 G 11A in 6 games.
November: (only 2 games without a point: WPG and DAL) 9 G 10A in 15 games.
October: 7G 4A: in 13 games. (I guess he started off a little slow).
