After an impressive opening week, I had a bit of a hiccup last week, taking my early record down to .500. I'll look to start inching my way back toward last season's two-thirds winning percentage right away as we enter this Saturday's busy slate.
Chicago @ Winnipeg (3:00pm ET)
By the Numbers – Frozen Pools
Chicago, a single point out of the Central Division lead faces off against the jets, who sit one point out of the Central Division basement. As the pretenders start to have their hot starts simmered down, we can see this is a bit of a mismatch. The Hawks have won two straight and have lit the lamp 19 times in the past four outings alone. While the Jets have lost two straight, five of six overall and have failed to score more than twice in a game since October 22nd. The Jets have been sub.500 at home thus far, while the Hawks have been 3-1-1 on the road. This one is a cakewalk for Chicago.
