In this lockout-shortened National Hockey League season, it is proving important to get off to a strong start, and one team, the Chicago Blackhawks, have taken that mission to heart, having recently matched a league record for most consecutive games with a point earned at the beginning of a season. The Blackhawks are not only second in the league overall in goals per game average, they are also second in the league at the moment in goals against average as well, all of which contribute to a well-oiled machine on the United Center ice. Right wing Patrick Kane is leading the way for the Blackhawks in both goals scored and assists, which is also putting him in the top five in points leaguewide. Also making major contributions are Jonathan Toews, who leads the team in plus-minus; as well as winger Marian Hossa, center Patrick Sharp; and defenseman Duncan Keith, who provides not only some offensive support, but is also an on-ice enforcer who is second on the team in penalty minutes. In net, both Corey Crawford and Ray Emery have proven to be nearly unbeatable; Crawford is in the top five in the league in both save percentage as well as goals-against average. Emery has a higher goals-against average, but has a strong save percentage. All in all, the Blackhawks are front and center in any discussion of who may capture the Stanley Cup in this year's campaign.
