CHICAGO -- If the Chicago Blackhawks can extend their point streak to 10 games it will be quite an accomplishment.
With points already in seven consecutive contests, and a 5-1-2 overall record, they’ll begin a three-games-in-four-night stretch on Friday in North Carolina against the Hurricanes. Saturday and Monday they play their first divisional games of the season as the Columbus Blue Jackets and Nashville Predators visit the United Center.
It might be a chance to get their struggling power play going as the Hurricanes have given up nine goals on 39 chances. That ranks in the bottom third of the NHL while the Jackets rank dead last in penalty killing and even the normally defensively sound Predators are 15th in the early going.
