DALLAS – A number of Chicago fans who’ve kept their attention on the success of the Cubs now should turn it towards the Blackhawks after their World Series title.

Right now Joel Quenneville’s team is finding their groove as they complete the end of their first month of play.

On Saturday the Blackhawks made it five-in-a-row as they rallied to beat the Stars 3-2 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas. That improves them to 8-3-1 on the season and their 17 points make them the best team in the Western Conference.

Patrick Kane’s fourth goal of the season midway through the second period ended up being the game-winning goal as Corey Crawford kept the Stars off the board for the final two periods.

The goalie overcame two first period goals to stop the 21 shots from Dallas in the second and third periods. Ryan Hartman tied the game in the second period with his second goal of the season then Kane scored the eventual game-winner 4:41 later.

Richard Panik opened the scoring for the Blackhawks rather quickly, putting a rebound past Antti Niemi just 11 seconds into the contest. Brett Ritchie and Curtis McKenzie got a pair of first period goals for the Stars but they had nothing else the rest of the night as the Blackhawks continue their strong play into November.
