The Chicago Blackhawks return from a marathon seven-game road trip with a stunning 6-1 record. After opening the annual Circus Trip with a 5-1 loss in Colorado, the 'Hawks stormed back to take six in a row from Western Conference foes.
Saturday night, Chicago capped a successful road jaunt with a 5-2 win in Phoenix in front of an audience laden with Indian head sweaters. The Blackhawks got five goals from five different scorers as they increased their NHL-leading point total to 44.
It was a long excursion to say the least. The trip was also an eventful one, as a lot was revealed about the 'Hawks over the course of the seven games.
Here are some reflections from the Circus Trip as we wait for Chicago to return to action at home against Dallas Tuesday night.
