On Thursday night, the Blackhawks were left again praising positive portions of the game despite the overall result not showing, dropping a 4-1 result to the Vancouver Canucks at the United Center.
"We've just got to keep going. Disappointing, obviously, but we need to win one game and I think we can build some momentum from there," head coach Jeremy Colliton said. "We've got to find a way to break through. I don't think we played poorly, I don't think we played great, but we played solid."
"Frustrating, but we can't feel sorry for ourselves. Got to find a way to dig ourselves out of a hole," said Patrick Kane, who was honored pregame for his 1,000-game milestone last season. "Obviously we've got two days in between (games) to rest up now and try to keep building on where we are as a team, how we're playing and keep getting better and better because I think when we get it, we have stretches in the game where we're pretty dialed in. Got to try to do that more consistently."
