The Blackhawks travel to Edmonton tonight shorthanded without the services of Marian Hossa who will be missing his second game due to a Family Matter in Chicago. After missing 14 games Michal Handzus will be back in the lineup and for some crazy reason Joel Quenneville has decided to play him with Patrick Kane and Brandon Pirri on the 2nd line. Should be an interesting lineup in a city that the Hawks never seem to play well in.
Last Game’s Prediction– I foolishly predicted a goal for Sheldon Brookbank in a 4-3 Blackhawks win, so at least I got the one goal win correct.
Tonight’s Prediction- The Blackhawks always struggle in Edmonton which even has the Blackhawks writers calling this a scary game. The Blackhawks will get into a high scoring affair with the Oilers but prevail 6-4 with Kris Versteeg scoring twice and Brandon Bollig picking up his third goal of the game.
