The Blackhawks play the Tampa Bay Lightning for the second time this month after not having played in nearly 2 calendar years.  The Blackhawks played their first song on their 2013 record against the Tampa Bay Lightning on October 5th  by going up 2-0 only to lose their lead in the third period and head to a shootout where on that night they lost.

Last Game Prediction- I picked the Hawks to win 6-2 with Andrew Shaw scoring his first goal.  Well, I did get the Panthers score right, while everyone else had the Hawks blanking the Panthers. None of us were right.

So from this point forward until the Hawks don’t play in 2-2 games that head to a shootout for an entire week, I will predict a 3-2 shootout win for the Blackhawks with Patrick Kane scoring a goal.  The last time the Blackhawks played in Tampa they lost 5-4 in overtime so a shootout in Tampa is a logical prediction!
