A win from Chicago will bring the Hawks to within one ...
The Chicago Blackhawks (30-8-11, 1st in Central) haven't always "played sixty" this season. Much of the time, their talent and offensive skills have carried them through to wins - or at least points.
However, the Blackhawks are just 4-1-5 in their past 10 games, and they are coming off Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss versus the Avalanche. Friday, they will be facing the high-flying Ducks (36-8-5, 1st in league), who are on a 7-game winning streak -- and who absolutely obliterated the Canucks 9-1 on Anaheim ice Wednesday night.
There's no kind words to describe what happened in Anaheim last night. The only players not to record points were Cam Fowler...
The Islanders (8-17-5) recent road trip has begun as miserable as the team’s season thus far, as they dropped both games in St. Louis and Los Angeles, while being outscored 8-1. The Isles have dropped a total of 9 games in a row and their season is on the brink of obscurity.
Preview: There could be a lot on the line for tonight’s Southern California battle. The Kings (22-13-3; 47 points) make the short trip to Anaheim to take on the Ducks (25-8-5; 55 points) tonight at 6. Tonight’s contest marks the final ten games in the season for both teams. Los Angeles currently sits in second place in the Pacific Division trailing the Ducks by eight points. The Kings final game against Anaheim will be next Saturday at the Staples Center.
Since the winner of each division is reserved a top three seed for the playoffs winning the Pacific Division provides plenty of advantages. A chance to pick up two points on the Ducks and set the ton...
The Chicago Blackhawks fell to the Anaheim Ducks for the third time this season, giving the Ducks the series sweep with a 2-1 victory in the United Center. The win comes as sweet relief for the hungry Ducks, who were 0-4 since their last bout with the Hawks, including a 4-0 shutout loss to the San Jose Sharks. Chicago briefly regained their 5 point lead in the Western Conference, only to have the Ducks within striking distance again after tonight's loss. RECAP: The first period ended with the two teams scoreless and tied with 9 SOGs a piece. Corey Perry was the first to put a point on the board for the Ducks to liven u...
The Chicago Blackhawks face the Anaheim Ducks tonight in the last game of a four game road trip. This is the first matchup this season of the best two teams in the Western Conference. The Blackhawks are coming off of a 5-2 win over the Colorado Avalanche, the team who ended the record-setting points streak. The Ducks are coming off of a 5-3 victory over the San Jose Sharks.
The Blackhawks aren’t the only team that has gone on a points streak this season. The Ducks have earned points in 11 straight games, the longest active point streak in the National Hockey League.
The Flames will look to continue one streak while trying to end another tonight when they head into Anaheim to face the Ducks. The Flames have not won in Anaheim in fifteen straight visits but are playing their best hockey of the season and will look to extend their winning streak to a season-high three games. The Ducks are one of the surprises so far in this shortened season, sitting in 2nd place in the West, and at the top of the Pacific Division.
Now 5-9-0 in games against the current playoff set, acrimoniously booed off the Wells Fargo Center ice after a sadsack performance against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday, the Philadelphia Flyers find themselves at a crux. Are they a playoff team?
Is this team, that needs to be bailed out by magical timeouts on a daily basis, that can only play 20 minutes on any given night, that cannot get the big save when they need it, a playoff team?
