Brandon Saad, along with his linemates Marian Hossa and Jonathan Toews, have been on fire as of late.

The Blackhawks' top line has scored nine goals and registered 17 points in Chicago's last four games. Saad is on his way to a career season with 38 points in 56 games well ahead of his previous best pace which resulted in a 47-point effort last season. Good timing for Saad as he is set to become a restricted free agent July 1st.

Brandon Saad has been producing more offense of late, but he wants to keep working on his consistency.

"I think I’m just trying to get better every game," Saad said. "Regardless of scoring or not, I want to play well and a full 60 [minutes]. The pucks are going in but I’m just trying to progress." The 22-year-old is playing on the Hawks' top line with Jonathan Toews and Marian Hossa, and it has paid off for him. "He started off, not at the level we’re looking for, kind of like our team in the first part of the season. But he’s definitely picked things up," coach Joel Quenneville said. "That line, a lot of nights, is tough to contain. They’re playing against top defense pairings and top lines and a lot of nights are in the offensive zone. Saader’s dangerous off the rush. But he’s a threat coming out of our own end as well."

The only positive thing for the Blackhawks to come out of Friday's embarassing 5-2 loss to the Oilers was the play of the team's number one line.

The unit centered by Jonathan Toews with Marian Hossa and Brandon Saad on the wings, accounted for both goals and all six points in the loss. "They were dangerous. That line does a lot of good things," coach Joel Quenneville said after the game. "A couple two-on-ones and Saad-er just goes to the net. That's how you score a lot in this league." Saad now has 12 goals and is well on the way to a 25-30 goal season. He is fourth in Chicago scoring with 27 points in 42 games and is making a good case for a nice contract extension.

Brandon Saad scored twice in Chicago's 5-2 loss to Edmonton on Friday night.

Brandon Saad netted his ninth goal of the season on Thursday at the Winter Classic.

"It's a special moment, it's my first one outside," he said. "To be a part of this game and be able to score in front of all these fans is definitely exciting but you want to win the game." Saad has picked up three points in his last four games to give him 24 on the year.

Brandon Saad registered the game-winning goal in Sunday's 2-1 victory against Calgary.

His seventh tally of the season came at the 12:57 mark of the third period. Saad ended the month of November with a goal and he's been hot in December with three goals and three assists in his past seven contests.

Brandon Saad scored another goal in Saturday's win over Nashville.

Saad has three goals and five points in his last four games. He's been seeing plenty of ice time on the Hawks' top line with Marian Hossa and Jonathan Toews, but that may be coming to an end soon. Blackhawks' forward Patrick Sharp may be ready to return on Tuesday, which would probably mean that Saad will be placed on another forward line. "You can’t replace Sharpie," Saad said. "When he comes back, he’s going to do a great job. But every line’s good on this team, really. And whoever I’m with, I"m just looking forward to keep playing well."

Brandon Saad is once again one of the Blackhawks' better players.

He started the season very slowly but has kicked it up a notch the past few weeks and now is playing on the Hawks' top line alongside Jonathan Toews and Marian Hossa. Friday night he scored the winning goal with 27 seconds left in the game against the Canadiens. Saad has registered points in three consecutive games and has 17 points in 26 games. Saad is also playing for a contract, so if for some reason he is available in your pool, run don't walk to pick him up.

Brandon Saad has been playing well since rejoining the top line.

He went through a three-game pointless skid before scoring a goal in Saturday's win over Los Angeles, but coach Joel Quenneville has been pleased with the trio of Saad, Marian Hossa and Jonathan Toews. "That line always plays the right way," Quenneville said. "They draw a lot of the coverage and [top] matchups. That's what makes you a good team — whether they're scoring or not, they're doing the right thing and playing the right way." Saad accounted for nine points in 14 November games after Quenneville asked him for more consistency. There's still room for improvement there, but he's trending in the right direction given his place in the lineup.

Chicago coach Joel Quenneville wants more from the talented but inconsistent Brandon Saad.

Despite his immense talent, Saad has been slumping in his last four games with no points, only six shots on goal and a minus five rating. "I just think he's proven that he can be a top player," Quenneville said. "And that's what we want to push him to." The Hawks believe Saad can be one of the NHL's best power forwards if he could perform on a consistent basis. He's played on all four lines this season to try to get a spark out of him.
