The Chicago Blackhawks Continue To Look For Their First Win

from Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times,

The Blackhawks changed everything they could Saturday: forward lines, defensive pairings, the goalie.

But they still squandered an energetic start, still spent too long on the ice each shift, still had a brutal defensive breakdown at a crucial time and still finished winless on the season after a 3-2 overtime loss to the Jets.

“As a group, we have to have that character to close out games and step on their throat when they’re down,” winger Brandon Saad said.

Clearly, through three games — each a painful defeat in its own way — the Hawks don’t have that down yet.
