The Chicago Blackhawks are a perfect 8-8 when it comes to the penalty kill this season.

Chicago was awful last season as they were 27th in the NHL in that department after spending a lot of the season worse than that. But it's been the opposite in the early going. "Our penalty kill is great," Toews said. "Were getting pucks out and doing the little things and just making it harder on them in our zone. You do that and eventually they're going to try and make some plays and make some mistakes off that." The Blackhawks have looked very good thus far and although it is early, they have the talent to be a Stanley Cup contender.
