CHICAGO – After an offseason of negative surprises, the Blackhawks have had some pleasant ones in the first month of the season.

Despite a loss on Thursday in which they blew a two-goal lead in the final three minutes, Jeremy Colliton’s team is playing better than most people thought. They’re 6-5-4 on the season and within distance of the top of the Central Division, which is aided by having a few games in hand.

Chris Boden of WGN Radio talked about the team’s start to the season on GN Sports with Lauren Magiera on Friday’s show. You can watch that segment in the video above.
