Toews and Kane played together throughout most of last season and had a slew of linemates along the way. This season could be different for the Blackhawks’ top line.
Having the same linemates helps build chemistry. Kane has found some success in the past when he was playing with different players, game in and game out. However, it was when he played an entire season with Artemi Panarin and Artem Anisimov that Kane was most successful and consistent.
Last season, Toews and Kane were reunited to try and spark the offensive play of Jonathan Toews.
