Video: When will the ‘Hawks lose in regulation?

Feb 14, 2013, 7:36 PM EDT

The Chicago Blackhawks are the league’s most dominant team right now.

How long will that domination last?

That’s what many are asking, including the NHL on NBC crew, as the first-place Blackhawks boast a 10-0-3 record through 13 games.

Chicago has gotten at least a point from every game this season and is now flirting with the incredible run the Ducks had to open the 2006-07 season.

Those Ducks went 12-0-4 to start the year, racking up 28 points — which also happened to be the same season Anaheim won its first and only Stanley Cup.

On that note, here are Liam McGuire, Mike Milbury and Keith Jones discussing what lies ahead for the ‘Hawks:

    Its got to be a lot of fun to be a Blackhawk fan right now….it reminds me of the crazy tear the Sabres went on when they started the 06-07 season like 17-3 in first 20 games. They went on to win the presidents trophy, only to get knocked out by Ottawa in the conference finals…..

    Too bad NO ONE cares who wins the presidents trophy.

      Folks in Vancouver do. It’s the only way their team has a shot at any kind of trophy.

    I’d love for it to be Columbus. Just for the reaction you’d probably get from the players on both sides. The Hawks would be speechless and Columbus would be over the moon. Ending the Hawks regulation streak would be as rewarding for them as getting into the playoffs is for other teams. It’d be awesome.

    At that point they will have already overtaken Anaheim for the record, too. So I don’t feel as bad about rooting for a loss. Sometimes you gotta pull for the underdog.

    Emery in goal against the Sharks tonight. I’m guessing tonight.
