Blackhawks winger Patrick Kane excited for Nick Schmaltz's return from injury

If you look at Patrick Kane's game log, you'll notice he scored goals in the first two Blackhawks games but hasn't in the last four.

Artemi Panarin-Brandon Saad trade a rare one that benefits both teams

The Patrick Kane to Artemi Panarin one-time goal from the left circle was something to behold over the last two seasons. Most of what Panarin does with his stick handling and playmaking ability would catch your eye in a way that few hockey players can. In that way he was the perfect complement...

Paired with Patrick Kane, Nick Schmaltz looks like potential breakout player

The Blackhawks' 10-1 victory over the Penguins in Thursday's season opener was like a start-of-semester party at college. Everybody having a good time with no bad vibes anywhere. But a moment in the third period at the United Center was akin to someone putting on a bad song or spilling a drink....
