Things get a bit heated during the Blackhawks-Sabres game, October 16. The two teams usually only face each other once per season; this year's schedule included two matchups early in the year.
The Canucks came to town for the first of their series games on October 20th. It was Chicago's first shootout victory of the year.

Somewhere in the middle of the play, Patrick Kane took a stick to the face. And as Kane lay sprawled on the ice and the rest of the players battled in the corner, interestingly enough, it was only Roberto Luongo who checked to see if Kane was okay. Despite very strong play by the Blackhawks, Luongo was in the groove, and Vancouver would win this December 3rd game 3-0, the only time Chicago would get shut out until March 17th.
