If you look up league leaders for both the power play and penalty kill, you won’t have to go too far down the page to see the Blackhawks. Chicago is the only team in the NHL that ranks amongst the top five in both categories. Troy Murray, the Blackhawks Radio color analyst, joined Bob Sirott and Dave Eanet to share his thoughts on why the team has excelled on special teams. Murray also comments on the high numbers of overtime games, goaltending, and injuries.

Troy appears on the Morning Show and Chicago’s Afternoon News on alternate weeks throughout the season, sponsored by your Local Chevy Dealers at ChevyDrivesChicago.Com.
