Tonight in California, the Blackhawks (30-16-2) play the Anaheim Ducks (32-11-6). The season series between these two stands at 1-1, and the last time that these two played, the Ducks were limping through injuries, and Chicago beat them 4-1 on the Circus Trip.

Blackhawks seek to break mid-season slump after loss to Stars

The Blackhawks hosted the Dallas Stars at the United Center on Sunday night, and it was a bad game. After the game, head coach Joel Quenneville called it a "carbon copy" of the loss to the Jets on Friday night.

The Stars made it 2-0 by the 11-minute mark of the period on Tyler Seguin and Cody Eakin goals - and the second goal was short-handed.
