The last time the Chicago Blackhawks played in Calgary, Antti Raanta was in net and the Blackhawks left with a 3-2 victory. Flashforward to the end of January and the Hawks are in Calgary and Raanta is in net tonight. The Hawks traditionally don’t play well in Western Canada yet they have won their last two times in Calgary albeit close games. Which leads us to tonight’s matchup and new lines and the reappearance of Brandon Pirri from Rockford. It will be exciting game for Hawks fans to see which lines blend and which still will be in question.
Last Game’s Prediction– I surely didn’t predict Brandon Bollig as the only Hawks scorer nor that the Hawks would give up three unanswered third period goals to lose 3-1. Epic Fail Prediction!
Tonight’s Prediction– The new lines will spark everyone especially Bickell who was forced to watch the game from the pressbox. The Hawks will skate with purpose tonight and beat the Flames 4-1 with Bickell picking up a goal and Pirri picking up an assist on a Kane goal!
