Going Well in Chicago

From Lacy J. Banks at the Chicago Sun-Times,

While Blackhawks coach Denis Savard is ‘‘quite concerned’’ about injuries sidelining Martin Havlat (right shoulder) and Rene Bourque (groin), there are three significant reasons why Savard is happy and why his team is off to a 3-2 start.

First, Robert Lang has opened the season with a bang, leading the teams in scoring with three goals and two assists.

Second, rookies Patrick Kane (four assists) and Jonathan Toews (one goal, two assists) have each made an immediate impact.

Third, the Blackhawks have better depth, especially on defense, with the contributions of such newcomers as Kevyn Adams and Yanic Perreault.
