Afternoon jam: Hawks in good company

Making Their Point: The Blackhawks visit the Canucks tonight with 73 points through 44 games. From Elias: Only three other teams in NHL history had 73 points after 45 games. The 1929–30 Bruins had 77 in a 44-game season, the 1943–44 Canadiens had 75 points after 45 games and the 2008–09 Sharks had 73 after 45 games. Of those three, only the ’44 Canadiens won the Stanley Cup.
