Chicago Blackhawks hold on for their fourth straight winVincent Pariseon October 26, 2022 at 11:00 am

The Chicago Blackhawks came into Tuesday night’s game on a three-game winning streak. They are supposed to be a rebuilding team but it is early enough in the season to enjoy this huge winning streak. They thought they’d try to extend it Tuesday against the Florida Panthers.

Coming into the game, this seemed like the game in which the Blackhawks would be humbled again. The Panthers were one of the best teams in the NHL last season. That doesn’t really mean much, however, as the games have to be played.

The Hawks played very well right out of the gate. They were winning 1-0 2:57 into the game thanks to a goal by Taylor Raddysh.

Late in that same period, Patrick Kane scored his first goal of the season to make it 2-0. Seeing Kaner get two first-period points is huge. Kane has gotten off to a somewhat slow start but he now has five points (1-4-5) through six games. This should kickstart his season.

Philipp Kurashev scored a very beautiful goal in the second period which gave the Hawks a 3-0 lead that made it seem like they were going to cruise to that fourth straight win.

The Chicago Blackhawks held on for their fourth straight win against Florida.

The rebuilding team in them showed a little bit in the third period. They allowed the Panthers to climb back into the game by scoring two goals. With just a one-goal deficit, the Panthers pulled their goalie for the extra attacker and tried to tie it.

Luckily, Jonathan Toews scored into the empty net and sealed Chicago’s fourth straight win by a final score of 4-2. It was an impressive night at home against a very good team that has Stanley Cup aspirations. Seeing the Hawks play this well is truly shocking.

There are few teams more surprising (good or bad) through the first couple of weeks. Sometimes, crazy things like that happen in sports.

It was nice to see Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane each net a goal in the same game. Their record when that happens is almost perfect so it is no surprise that it led to a win in this one. We don’t know how many more of these we have left so enjoy it.

This team is well coached which means they won’t just lay down and let teams beat them. There is a chance that they still finish near the bottom of the standings but it won’t be easy for teams to beat them if they play like this.

They will try to make it five straight when they host the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday night. That should be an intense battle with high-level skill.
