Congratulations to the Chicago Blackhawks, who set a new NHL record by opening their season 14-0-3 (31 points). It is the first time in league history that a team has taken points in each of the first 17 games of the season.
In addition, the Blackhawks have not lost a regular-season game in regulation since 3/25/12. They ended last season 3-0-3; so they're 17-0-6 in the past 23 regular season games, tying for third place among league records for going without a regulation loss. (Of related interest, in the playoffs last year, the Blackhawks took 5 of the 6 games they played to overtime.)
The Blackhawks will face the Columbus Blue Jackets on Sunday 2/24 and the Edmonton Oilers on Monday 2/25 for their next two games. Both matches are at the United Center.
