To say the 2013 Blackhawks are looking an awful lot like the 2010 Blackhawks after two games is the kind of hyperbolic, knee-jerk reaction that so often makes pundits look silly and irrational.

Only we didn’t say it. They did.

‘‘Right now, it feels like 2010,’’ piping-hot winger Marian Hossa said after the Hawks’ 6-4 victory Sunday against Mike Smith and the Phoenix Coyotes, a goalie and a team they had so much trouble with last season. ‘‘We had the four lines going [then], and right now we’re doing similar things. I know it’s only two games and it’s early to be talking about it, but I feel good about rolling four lines, so everyone’s more energized, instead of playing two or three lines so much.’’

Nobody feels better than Hossa, who has returned from his concussion looking better than ever. Against two of the best goalies in the world — the Los Angeles Kings’ Jonathan Quick and Smith — he has four of the Hawks’ 11 goals. He looks fast, fit and physical.

And he doesn’t think that he’s anywhere near his sharpest. He said that he’s playing mostly on instinct, not on technique, and that his confidence only can go up.

No doubt it feels good to whip the 'Yotes on their own rink but its way, way, waaaaaay too early to be getting overconfident.

It get a little more exciting when ya jump out to a 3-0 start against 2 division champs and the Stanley cup champions to start the season off and 2 of the 3 were road games.
