"We're either an efficient team that can be real effective, or we're inefficient and we lose games. So the next little bit will tell us what we really are." - Todd McLellan
The Blackhawks have beaten the Sharks twice this season, both in regulation.
The Blackhawks are the best team in the NHL with a record of 13-0-3 and can set the NHL record for the best start to a season if the Sharks don't win in regulation.
This Blackhawks are motivated, and rested, because they too haven't played since Tuesday.
Per McLellan's quote we'll get an idea of what the Sharks team is made of.
And clearly the Hawks are a better team right now and there is much work to be done with time to do it.
You beat the top team in their rink when they were rested and motivated which makes a statement that the Sharks are a team to be reckoned with.
