The Blackhawks' three losses include a 4–3 heartbreaker in overtime against the Devils but also two blowout losses to the Avalanche and the Penguins.
The Islanders have made the Stanley Cup semifinals in each of the last two seasons, though they lost both years to the eventual Stanley Cup champion Lightning. So far this season, they have lost 5–1 to the Panthers and 6–3 to the Hurricanes.
Both teams have given up way too many goals so far. Blackhawks goalie Marc-André Fleury, acquired from the Golden Knights in the offseason, has struggled with his new team, and Ilya Sorokin has given up 10 goals in two games for New York.
