The Blackhawks and Ducks will face off tonight as two of only 4 teams that have 80 or more points this season along with the St Louis Blues and Pittsburgh Penguins. The Blackhawk finally got the Anaheim Ducks monkey off their back when they defeated them 4-2 in mid January at the United Center. The Hawks got two goals from Marian Hossa and two of the Hawk that struggled the most in January (Kris Versteeg, Bryan Bickell) scored on the evening. The Ducks are a big physical team that has offensive talent unlike the LA Kings who struggle on offense and the Hawks seem to have their number. This should be a very exciting hard-hitting game that could go a long way in deciding playoff seating come April.
Last Game Prediction- Didn’t see a high scoring affair with both teams struggling to score goals, but luckily that’s what we got in LA. I did predict a Kane goal even though he doubled that prediction!
Tonight’s Prediction- The Hawks seem to get on a role on the road so I see the Hawks taking this game 3-2 with Marian Hossa picking up where he left off last time against the Ducks.
