The Chicago Blackhawks are getting back into a normal regular season flow this week after seemingly playing a NFL schedule for the first two weeks of the season.  The Blackhawks will be on the road for the second time of the young season before heading back to Chicago for two more home contests to end the week.

On Tuesday, the Chicago Blackhawks make their first appearance in Raleigh North Carolina to face the Carolina Hurricanes since October 28, 2011 which did go the way of the Hawks in a 3-0 shutout.  The Hurricanes currently sit in 2nd place of the Metropolitan Division with a record of 2-2-2 with only the Pittsburgh Penguins ahead of them in the standings.

On Thursday the Blackhawks head home to seek revenge for last weeks last second defeat to the St. Louis Blues.  If last Wednesday’s game had a playoff feel this weeks game should be even more intense after the Hawks gave away points in the final seconds at Scottrade Center.

On Saturday, Dave Bolland and the Toronto Maple Leafs make an appearance at the United Center.  Look for a lot of Bolland scoring the Game 6 Cup winner highlights, but the real story is how well the Maple Leafs have started this season.  It should be a fun and strange Saturday night seeing Bolland first hand wearing #63

Three games and 6 points on the line for the Hawks this week, is the St. Louis game the most important game of the week or are you looking forward to Dave Bolland’s return more?
