The Swifts are on a four-game winning streak at the end of their first three contests of the season.
The Swifts have a 12-6-3 record in the three games they’ve played since a 2-5 start.
There has been some speculation that the Swims will play three games a week, but the team’s head coach says that’s not the case and the team will play a more even number of games.
“We’ve had a little little bit of a stretch where we’re not playing as many games as we want to play,” coach Ryan Smith said on the team website.
“But we’ve got a lot of good players that are still in the lineup, and I think that will make it even more difficult to find some guys in there.”
Smith also noted that the team has had a lot less injuries this season compared to last.
“(It) is going to be a little different for us in terms of injuries, but we’ve done a good job of being in shape, and we’re playing a lot better,” he said.
So far this season, the Swans are 1-1 against the Blackhawks and 3-1 in the past four games.
The Hawks have dropped five of their last six games.
The Hawks have also played a combined 10 games against the Stars and Blues.
Smith said the team hasn’t had a good first game against a playoff opponent.
“The last two or three games against San Jose, we’ve been struggling a little,” he said.
“We’re looking forward to the next game.”
It is the second straight season the Swains have been shutout by the Hawks.
This season, the Hawks have won three of their past four meetings with the Swaps.
