The Chicago Blackhawks head home tonight for the first time since before the All-Star break and the face the team they last saw the last time they played at the United Center, the Arizona Coyotes.
The Blackhawks easily won that night before they headed out on their ice show trip and the Hawks will be looking to continue their momentum that they built up after winning their last two games of the trip to finish off the trip 4-3.
The Coyotes are 3-4-3 in their last 10 and well are playing out the string already, but they have been far more competitive lately since the last time the Hawks saw them in the middle of January.
Somehow this game is a national TV game which hopefully means the Hawks won’t fall into the team that struggles in the first game home after a long road trip. Here are the viewing info for tonight’s game from the United Center.

The prediction from the Blues Game Sunday morning was pretty close! I predicted a 4-3 win and the Blackhawks won 4-3, and I predicted goals from Bryan Bickell and Andrew Shaw and while Shaw didn’t score, Bickell knocked in a David Rundblad rebound so not perfect but pretty close.
Tonight I think the Hawks will be looking to pick up two points and put on a show in the same time so I will predict a 2 goal game for Patrick Kane with Brad Richards picking up 3 assists in a Blackhawks 5-2 victory.
