For their first game back at the UC, the Chicago Blackhawks (20-4-4) are hosting their Central division rivals, the Dallas Stars (12-9-4).

The Hawks are hoping to be able to settle back home with a strong win, but the Stars have proven to be solid while on the road.

 

However, Dallas are without their star player, Tyler Seguin, who’s out with concussion-like symptoms. His production wa...

Blackhawks want to keep going strong against Flames

The last Canadian team the Blackhawks (17-4-4) are facing during their circus trip are the Calgary Flames (8-11-4), who are looking for a solid win in regulation after their last three contests were decided in OT or a shootout.

Blackhawks’ Canadian leg of their circus road trip continues in Edmonton

The Blackhawks’ circus trip continue, and they are facing their 3rd Canadian team in the Edmonton Oilers. Both Blackhawks (16-4-4) and Oilers (7-15-2) are on win streaks and this match-up between two team full of skilled players is expected to be fast and hard.

 

Chicago is looking to keep their consistency up after having a few up and down games and shaky goaltending, while the Oilers are just battling for more points with plenty of injuries on their side, a barely there defence and issues in goaltending as well.

 

Blackhawks looking to bounce back against the Jets

To continue their annual circus road trip, the Blackhawks (14-4-4) are visiting the Jets (10-10-3) in Winnipeg again - they were there last on November 6th, and the Jets came to visit the UC on November 9th. Both times, the Blackhawks won by a solid margin, and they will try to do so again, as they come back from a 5-1 loss in Denver.

 

The Blackhawks have been a little inconsistent lately. After winning 4 games in a row, they then dropped a game against Nashville with a final score of 7-2, won their next game against San Jose, and the...

The Blackhawks head to the Wild in hopes for a big win

In what was their sloppiest game of the season so far, the Blackhawks (6-2-3) fell to the Minnesota Wild (6-3-3) on Saturday, and are facing them again on Monday evening, surely hoping to snap their losing streak.

 

Despite outshooting the Wild 36-25, the Blackhawks fell to their opponent 5-3, due to sloppy defences, too many turnovers and giveaways. The team lacked a sense of finish, and their special units are still a sore spot for them. They only managed one goal for the 7 penalties the Wild took, and allowed one goal themselves on the 5 penalties they took.
