The only team hotter than the Pens (won 4) right now is the Predators (won 6). And take a look at this:
I get so nervous! There are a ton of games on the slate tonight that could change the look of this by morning: Chicago vs. Boston, Dallas vs. Phoenix, Vancouver vs. Nashville, Los Angeles vs. Edmonton. The Hawks have a game in hand on everyone but the Stars and I’m not worried about teams above them getting farther ahead. Just the teams behind getting any closer.
The Hawks are still scratching it out, having gone 14-4-4 in the last 22 games. And these numbers! Jonathan Toews (31-44-75) is 12-17-29 over those 22 games. Patrick Kane (25-42-67) is 10-17-27. Marian Hossa (23-29-52) is 12-11-23 [link] and scored that beauty of an OT PP winner last night.
I’m going to take deep breaths and stay positive. Peter Pan knows you have to think happy thoughts before you can fly.Tags: Chicago Blackhawks, jonathan toews, marion hossa, patrick kane, playoffs
