from Tim Sassone of the Chicago Daily-Herald,
Here's how the Blackhawks are looking at their improbable 12-0-3 record after 15 games: It's not how you start but how you finish — as in winning the Stanley Cup.
By defeating the Los Angeles Kings 3-2 on Sunday at the United Center, the Hawks have gained at least 1 point in 15 straight games to begin the season, leaving them one game shy of Anaheim's NHL record of 16.
The Hawks can tie the record Tuesday against Vancouver at the UC.
"What's important to us is making the playoffs, and once we get there the real season starts," Jonathan Toews said. "That's a long ways away and there's a lot of work left to do. When you get to that point no one really cares or remembers these streaks at the start of the season.
"It's always fun when things are going your way and having fun to be able to match records or beat them or whatever it is. But the main thing is we're having fun, playing well as a team, and we keep improving."
