The Blackhawks

The Chicago Blackhawks got off to a good start in their season. They added some new players including Daniel Carcillo, Jamal Mayers, Andrew Brunette, and Steve Montador. Those players added some toughness to the team and so they could have more players to stick up for other players. They got off to a good start and hope to keep playing strong. They were 8-3-3 and their next opponent was the St. Louis Blues. The Blues are worse than the Hawks but it didn't seem like it that night. They beat the Hawks 3-0. They battled it out but just couldn't put the puck in the net. There next game was against the Columbus Blue Jackets, the worst team in the NHL. The Hawks showed them they were bad and they crushed them 6-3. Steve Montador had a Gordie Howe hat-trick. That means he got a goal, an assist, and a fight in the game. Jonathan Toews added two goals in the victory. The Calgary Flames came to the United Center and I was there. The National Anthem was the most energetic thing I've ever felt. Ray Emery was the back-up goalie, but got the nod and he played well. He made a couple bigs saves and then Duncan Keith scored. They never looked back and won 4-1. Brent Seabrook, Viktor Stalberg, and Daniel Carcillo scored to lead them to victory. They looked to stay strong against the Edmonton Oilers and did just that. They played really well and won 6-3. Steve Montador and Jonathan Toews added a pair of goals and Corey Crawford made some unbelievable saves. They played Vancouver next and they lost to them earlier in the month 6-2, but played really really hard. They looked very strong throughout the game and won 5-1. Corey Crawford played really tough in the net once again and Andrew Brunette, Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews, Patrick Sharp, and Steve Montador scored the goals. Marcus Kruger who is a rookie on the Blackhawks played really well even though he didn't score adding one assist. Marian Hossa had three assists in the game to help lead them to victory. The Hawks are in first place and want to keep it that way for another Stanley Cup.
