The Blackhawks followed up beating division leaders Anaheim Ducks and Boston Bruins with a shootout loss in the Motor City last night. The Hawks now head to a divisional rival in the Minnesota Wild on the back end of back to back games.  The Hawks looked to have turned the corner in their mini slump and then they go and lose another shootout game against the Red Wings who are just as bad in shootouts, and yes it’s funny to call this a slump when the Hawks only have 1 regulation loss in 15 games.  A regulation win against a Central division foe will be exactly what the Doctor ordered.

Last Game Prediction– Due to technical difficulties I didn’t get a Red Wings prediction out there, but I did nail the Bruins score perfectly when the Hawks won 3-2

Tonight’s Prediction– The Hawks have an incredible record on the back end of back to backs and will ride that confidence into a 5-1 win with Patrick Kane breaking his goal scoring drought!
