The Blackhawks are winners of four straight with a 4-2 victory over the Kraken on Wednesday night in Seattle to kick off a four-game road swing.
"These guys, they're coming together. They're finding ways to win," interim head coach Derek King said. "The ice was tilted on us a little bit there in the second and [Marc-Andre Fleury] was good. They just seem to be battling and they're still up on the bench having fun."
"It's a lot more fun the way we're playing hockey right now," said Fleury, who was far and away the game's No. 1 star with 31 saves. "We dug ourselves a big hole, still have a long way to go, but one period at a time, chip away at it and try to do the right thing to climb back out of that hole. I think we're playing better as team, all of us, and it's showing too. Got to keep going in the same direction."
Seth Jones, Alex DeBrincat and Patrick Kane all scored as the Blackhawks took a 3-0 lead in the opening 50 minutes of the game. Seattle made it interesting late before Jake McCabe netted his first as a Blackhawk into the empty net to seal the win.
