The Blackhawks face former defenseman Nick Leddy and the Islanders for the first time this season on Saturday night with an eight-game winning streak on the line. Leddy has played well (14 points in 29 games) for New York as the team has jumped out to second place in the Metropolitan Division early this season. The Islanders have been especially tough at home, winning 10 of 13, so it should be an exciting matchup between two powerful offenses. Here's your first thread of the night.

Go 'Hawks!
