Two of the top 2 teams in the Western Conference meet tonight at the United Center.  One team, the Chicago Blackhawks, were expected to be on top of the standings while the Phoenix Coyotes after an offseason of disarray wasn’t expected to be heard of that often throughout the 2013-2014 season.

Phoenix has dominated in the desert but have been a .500 club on the road.  They have scored 3 less goals than the Hawks while giving up 9 more so a good offensive hockey game is what should be in stored tonight at the United Center.

Last Games Prediction– I nailed it with the Bryan Bickell goal prediction, while the rest was not so close.  I had Andrew Shaw with 2 assists (He scored 1 goal) and the final would be 6-1 (who knew Crawford would let 4 in during a 5-4 win)

Tonight’s Prediction– Tonight is going to be a Rockford night with both Ben Smith and Brandon Pirri picking up goals in a 5-3 Hawks victory.
