With Thursday's 6-2 win, Chicago now has a 9-0-2 record this season.
The Blackhawks are the first team to 20 points this season while the next best squad, the Pittsburgh Penguins, have 16 points in 11 games. " We've been consistent in our games and getting a lot of contributions from a lot of guys," Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said. "It seems like chemistry and the mood of the room is as good as you can get. It's been reflected in our play." Naturally they'll slow down as the season goes on, but they've given themselves a ton of breathing room, especially given that this is a shortened season.
