Published

on

The Blackhawks (8-16-1) look for a consecutive win for the first time this season when take on the St. Louis Blues (13-12-1) tonight. Opening faceoff is at 7pm tonight.

Previously on Blackhawks Hockey:

The Blackhawks hung on to win 1-0 over the Anaheim Ducks on Thursday night. Petr Mrazek had 37 saves and Chicago was able to hold onto the lead with a single goal. The win broke a four-game losing streak.

And now, a bit on the Blues

The last time the Blues and Blackhawks played St. Louis  it was the Blues who skated away with a 4-2 victory back on November 26 at the United Center.

Miscellaneous Musings and Final Verdict

It’s another crack at the Blackhawks getting a second win in a row but they’ll have to do it without Kevin Korchinski, who was put on the non-roster list to be with his family. Isaak Phillips was recalled from Rockford and will fill in.

The Blackhawks have the chance to get elusive winning streak going, but they’ll likely need more than a goal tonight. In their last five games, the Blackhawks have scored a single goal four times, with Thursday’s game being the only one that resulted in a victory. Against Nashville, they potted three but fell in a shootout.

It’s been a collection of different players finding the back of the net, which includes Jason Dickinson, Ryan Donato, Nick Foligno, and Philipp Kurashev all contributing. They’ll clearly need a similar effort tonight as Chicago will try and keep those winning ways alive.
