Saad scored his sixth goal 3:05 into overtime, and the Blackhawks beat the Predators 2-1 on Saturday night in their first meeting since last year's playoffs.
Boy, are the Blackhawks glad to have Saad back. He's probably happy to be back too - it took him 20 games to score six goals last season with Columbus.
Saad tallied the game-winning goal in a 2-1 overtime victory against the Predators on Saturday.
That's already his sixth goal of the season, putting him a quarter of the way to his 24 scores from a season ago. In 2015-16, Saad scored a career-high 31 goals, which is a mark that seems attainable with the Pittsburgh native off to such a great start. Owners with game-winning goals as a category particularly love Saad right now, as four of his six goals have been game-winners.
Saad continued his sizzling start with his fifth goal Tuesday in a 3-1 win at Montreal.
Saad already has five goals and seven points in four games in his return to Chicago after spending two seasons with Columbus.
Saad scored on one of his team-leading four shots in Tuesday's 3-1 win over Montreal.
Saad gave Chicago a 2-1 lead with his fifth goal in four games just 19 seconds after Alex DeBrincat had tied the game late in the first period. His second stint with the Blackhawks is off to a tremendous start, as Saad has shown immediate chemistry with linemates Jonathan Toews and Richard Panik, both of whom assisted on his goal in this one.
Saad had a goal and assist to lead Chicago over the Blue Jackets 5-1 on Saturday night.
Saad returned to Chicago in an offseason deal that sent Artemi Panarin to the Blue Jackets, and he looks better than ever. Saad, one of four players to open the season with a hat trick this week, has four goals and an assist in his first two games.
