Chicago Asks For Help

via the AP,
After accumulating more penalty minutes and giving up more power plays than any team in the NHL, the Chicago Blackhawks are asking for help. Blackhawks general manager Dale Tallon has requested a meeting next week with Steve Walkom, the NHL's senior vice president and director of officiating, to try to determine why the Hawks are short-handed so often. "We're going to have myself, the coaches and players meet with Walkom, and we're going to go over it and discuss it and get to the bottom of it," Tallon said. "It has to be fixed. We can't keep doing it." The Hawks are averaging a league-high 22.4 penalty minutes a game and have been short-handed 172 times.
