Morning Bag Skate: Let's move on from last night

Our daily look at Blackhawks news and the happenings around the world of hockey.

David Banks-USA TODAY Sports

Not a great time waking up this morning after that frustrating loss to the Flames last night, but luckily there are still some positives to take from a mostly dominant performance. The Blackhawks stole a game against the Stars to open the season, after all, so I suppose we can just chalk that one up to bad karma. Anyways, here's the news early on Thursday.
