Will Chicago break Anaheim's record...

...of the best start to a season without a regulation loss? Anaheim set the record after starting 12-0-4 in 2006-2007. Chicago is 10-0-3 and needs 3 wins to break the record. After that start that year, the Ducks ended up winning the Stanley cup.

I hope so, it would be cool.

I had a gut feeling that the Hawks would start out really hot, picked them to win the Presidents trophy.... I really need to start betting on these things.

Couldn't find the option "bring back the tie" so I went no. I think its dumb that one team can win while the other can still say they "didn't" lose. A loss is a loss.

Weren't all 3 of the Hawks losses in the shootout? I think I remember Jagr beating the Ducks 4-3 in OT during that streak, so this is more impressive. It might have been after the streak though. However, I think I remember the announcers mentioning the streak.

Shootouts were around in 06-07, so what are you going on about?

And on top of that... Anaheim had shootout losses too.

They have a hard stretch of games ahead (San Jose, LA, Vancouver).

Anything is possible.

Eh I hope not being that the Ducks are my first team, but Hawks are my third team...so...why not? Sure they can, but it'll take a lot to actually do it. Chicago has looked beatable in their last few games.

They'll lose tonight, I think. Sharks are due for a win, and the Hawks are due for a loss.

Eh, really it is like 9 wins, 0 losses, 4 ties. I don't consider the shootout as winning or losing. The Hawks beating the Flames in the shootout is just as meaningless as losing to the Canucks in the shootout.

I don't think the Hawks break the record because Crawford is out with injury and who knows how many games he misses. Can't trust in Emery to not have a stinker within the next couple games.

Anyone who cares about goalies' win-loss records can't be helped, anyway.

I don't think we stand a chance when you look at what the Canucks do to the Northwest division.

I think the record is dumb both times. Its pretty much "team who has gone the longest without losing by 2+ goals". Like I said before, there should be a winner and a loser or they should call a tie. There shouldn't be a winner and a "well that was close enough".

Maybe at the next NHL awards they can hand out 700 participation ribbons so no one feels like a loser.

Yeah, it should. Ties are fine, but OT participation ribbons are laughable.

The Hawks have one shootout win (and all three "losses" came in the shootout as well). Call it four ties if you want - either way, still no regulation losses.

Typical exaggerated counter argument for this subject. Can't come up with sound reasoning so you have to resort to hyperbole. Well done

Canucks don't take too kindly to record breaking streakers.
