The Chicago Blackhawks are back at it tonight at the United Center in the much talked about 8 game homestand. The Blackhawks didn’t kick off the homestand on the right foot playing a pretty sloppy game and ending up skating off the ice with only one point in their shootout loss to the Arizona Coyotes.
The Blackhawk now have what used to be one of their most hated rivals arriving at the United Center in the way of the Vancouver Canucks. The rivalry with the Canucks was a pretty good one from 2009-2011 but the Canucks have sort of fallen off while the Blackhawks continue to play in Western Conference Finals and Stanley Cup Finals while the Canucks didn’t make the playoffs last year.
The Canucks have had a rebirth this season which started with the signing of Ryan Miller and the offense came out on fire and they had a very hot start to the season. The Canuck have hit a snag in their season and will be looking to right the ship and keep them above the playoff line in the Pacific Division and Western Conference so tonight will be a big game in the race for the 8 spots in the West.

The Prediction part of the program was not very kind Monday night against the Coyotes. I was totally off on every prediction especially after two straight games of getting pretty close. All of us including the Twitter prediction had the Hawks scoring 5 or 6 goals so the two goal effort was quite disappointing even if they were two great goals by Marian Hossa.
