Hawks play host to red-hot Coyotes

 

The Hawks will look to extend a 3-game winning streak as they take on the Phoenix Coyotes at the United Center on Thursday night.

The Hawks are starting to look like one of the more dominant forces in the NHL again, posting two solid wins against Winnipeg and Dallas last week and narrowly beating an Edmonton team 5-4 that has been notorious for giving the Hawks a tough time.
