The Chicago Blackhawks are taking on the Ottawa Senators tonight. The Blackhawks come in off an embarrassing loss to the Boston Bruins. It has been sometime since the Senators and Blackhawks. There last matchup was on October 29th at the United Center. The Blackhawks were a 6-5 winner in regulation. Goals were scored by Marian Hossa 1, two by Andrew Shaw, and Jonathan Toews recorded a hat trick in the victory.
There first meeting was one the rare Nikolai Khabibulian starts in which he allows four goals on 22 shots. Corey Crawford came in relief of Khabby that game allowing one goal on 15 shots.
Tonight Blackhawks starter in net is rumored to be Antti Raanta. Raanta had allowed three goals to the Colorado Avalanche.
The Blackhawks also released Teuvo Teravainen will not play tonight.
Meanwhile The Senators have shut down their best player in Bobby Ryan. The Senators are coming off a 4-1 loss to the Panthers. My prediction is the Blackhawks bounce back to win 4-3.
