Low Offensive Problems, “Stale” Lines, and Other Blackhawks Bullets

Take a minute from your Black Friday shopping or wake up from your Thanksgiving turkey hangover to enjoy today’s Blackhawks Bullets ahead of today’s Friday matinée contest between Chicago and the St. Louis Blues.

The Blackhawks Have A Goal-Scoring Problem

It’s no secret that Jonathan Toews’ goal-drought to begin the season weighs heavily on him. He’s used to being able to be penciled in for at least 20 every year of his career. But after missing all of last season, it was expected that Toews would have to ease back into playing a full-fledged NHL schedule at the high level of competitive standards that he holds himself to. Through 19 games, Toews has eight assists and no goals while winning 57.1 percent of his faceoffs this season. By his usual 82-game average goal-scoring pace of 29.9 goals per season, Toews would have already scored seven goals this season in an average year.

Canadiens’ Lehkonen Proving He Should Be Part of the Plan

The Montreal Canadiens are hurting right now, literally and figuratively. Losses are piling up, frustration is mounting, and the playoffs are a pipe dream. General manager Marc Bergevin has a few months to determine what direction he wants to take his hockey club. Although the 56-year-old GM has indicated he does not intend to make panic moves, it’s hard to believe the team will look the same by training camp next season. Decisions need to be made, including whether Montreal should re-sign restricted free agent (RFA) Artturi Lehkonen this offseason.

NHL’s best home-ice advantage is... Sunrise? ‘We’re trying to make it an imposing place’

On its surface, there’s nothing all too exceptional about the Florida Panthers’ home venue in Sunrise. The Panthers routinely rank in the bottom quarter of the league in average attendance, and their home arena in suburban Broward County is now nearly 25 years old, sits across the street from a shopping mall and has hosted as many Backstreet Boys shows — five — as Stanley Cup playoff victories. Right now, it doesn’t really even have a name, just a placeholder moniker: FLA Live Arena.

No one has to remind Flyers fans it’s been nearly a half-century since their favorite hockey team won the first of two Stanley Cups.
