The Chicago Blackhawks Have Yet To Win A Game This Season

from Phil Thompson of the Chicago Tribune,

The Chicago Blackhawks saw one hallowed streak come to a halt while laying claim to one of the worst streaks in NHL history.

The Hawks smashed the 2000-01 Washington Capitals’ record of 350 minutes, 25 seconds without holding a lead to start a season. After the Hawks’ 6-3 loss to the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday night at the United Center, the new record stands at 360:57.

And counting.

It was the Hawks’ sixth straight loss to open the season as they tumbled to 0-5-1 for a league-worst .083 points percentage....

It’s hard to imagine a more nightmarish scenario for Hawks fans: the most goals allowed all season (six) to their most hated rival (the Red Wings) on their home ice, which saw its sellout streak end.

Meanwhile, the hot seat has become a scorcher for coach Jeremy Colliton, whose defense fell into shambles in front of goalie Marc-André Fleury, who has seen better days.

Asked if he believes the organization still has faith in him, Colliton said, “Of course.”

It’s early, but what if Seth Jones is missing
Zach Weresnki more than the reverse.

I can’t quite tell if it’s the defense letting down Fleury
or the opposite. Probably some of both and when neither
trusts the other it can spiral. Fleury has turned it around before
but Vegas had a pretty strong defense. At certain point even ageless players
can hit a wall.
