CHICAGO -- Looking at all the stars on their roster, it would be easy to assume the Chicago Blackhawks have a dangerous power play.
Each time they get the man advantage, coach Joel Quenneville rolls out a combination of highly-skilled star forwards like Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, Patrick Sharp, Marian Hossa and Andrew Brunette plus talented defensemen like Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook -- not to mention up-and-coming youngster Nick Leddy.
After 10 games, however, the results are a bit perplexing.
Heading into Monday night's home game against the Nashville Predators (8:30 p.m.), Chicago's power play is ranked 27th in the League and has converted just four of 38 power-play opportunities into goals (10.5 percent) -- including an 0-for-5 performance in a 5-2 win this past Saturday against the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Even more stunning is the fact Chicago's League-best penalty-kill units have produced three shorthanded goals already while the power play has actually been on the ice for a pair of goals against.
