The Chicago Blackhawks already knew they should be scared of Connor McDavid.
The Chicago Blackhawks still have their exhibition game tonight to fine-tune their game against the St. Louis Blues. It is going to be a wonderful chance to play against another team. Well, their upcoming Stanley Cup qualifier opponent, the Edmonton Oilers, played in their one exhibition game on Tuesday night and it was very telling. The game had a few things for the Hawks to go to school on so they can take advantage but there was also something to be concerned about.
The Oilers looked like they sat back after having a lead there for a while. That is something that the Blackhawks have the speed and skill to take advantage of if Edmonton tries to pull that stuff against them. That is the one thing that this game against the Flames can do to help them in a positive manner.
