This is SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NHL. Each week, SB Nation sends out questions to the most plugged in Chicago Blackhawks fans, and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts.

According to the most recent SB Nation Reacts survey, 86 percent of Chicago Blackhawks fans are confident the team is headed in the right direction. That’s up from 75 percent last week and 60 percent the week before.

While Blackhawks fans are focused in on the team, one of the biggest stories around the league came from a city that doesn’t have an NHL team at all.

Last month the league had to adjust its schedule and delay the start of the second of two outdoor games played on the shores of Lake Tahoe after the warm weather created poor ice conditions. Despite the issues, fans around the country still care about playing the annual outdoor games.

On top of simply caring about the games, a clear majority of fans believe the extra work needed both by the league and players is worth it in order to make these games work.
