It is hard to complain about how the Chicago Blackhawks have opened the season.
They finished the month with a big win over rival Nashville to give themselves 16 points, which is good enough for a three-way tie for first in the Western Conference. Their record is 7-2-2 with two loses coming on the road (Dallas and Carolina) and two shootouts losses coming happening on home ice.
Finishing the month with an undefeated record in regulation is a good month.
However not everything is perfect in Hawk land.
Captain Jonathan Toews and Co. can most definitely improve on a few things as well as have a few players step up.
With a very road schedule in November if the Hawks wanna stay on top then they better hurry up and get working on fixing these problems.Some might be already in the process of being fixed.
