CHICAGO (AP) - Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman says he's happy with his team, indicting the defending Stanley Cup champions likely will stand pat with the NHL trade deadline coming up on Wednesday.
Speaking before the Blackhawks hosted the Pittsburgh Penguins at Soldier Field on Saturday night, Bowman praised the team chemistry and said the Blackhawks were ''focused on just going ahead and getting back on the ice.''
The Blackhawks began the day with a 35-12-14 record, good for 84 points and a tie with St. Louis for second in the Western Conference behind Anaheim. The Blues made a big trade on Friday, acquiring goaltender Ryan Miller and forward Steve Ott in a deal with Buffalo, but Bowman said that doesn't affect the Blackhawks' thinking.
