* Chicago’s penalty killing is off to a historically bad start. The 12/26 (46.2%)  is the worst mark in the league since 1987-88.

* However, they’ve been one of the best teams in the league when it’s been five-on-five with a +10 goals against, second only to Montreal’s +11.

* The Blackhawks have one of the top goal-scoring duos in the league, although they’re not who many might expect. Richard Panik (6) and Artem Anisimov (4) have ten goals, tied for second-best duo in the NHL.

* Taylor Hall is off to a fast start in his New Jersey career, scoring five of the Devils’ 13 goals through six games.
