Czech Trio Changing Chicago

from the Chicago Tribune,
Havlat and Handzus have been all the Hawks expected in the first two games. Havlat is tied for the NHL lead in points with six and Handzus is right behind at five. Vrbata has a goal and assist in the first two games. It's unlikely Havlat and Vrbata, both 25, could have imagined playing in the NHL for the same team in their youths. "Lots of things have changed since then," Vrbata said. "But in the preseason you could see we knew about each other on the ice. Hopefully that translates into some goals." Yawney said he was impressed with the poise the three showed on the ice when the Hawks were in trouble. "I like the characteristics the three have," Yawney said. "They settled things down."
