The Chicago Blackhawks head to the United Center tonight to face-off against the Calgary Flames after last nights big 4-2 victory against the St. Louis Blues. Tonight will be the final home game for the Chicago Blackhawks in the month of November with the Blackhawks leaving for their annual circus trip after tonight’s contest against the Flames.
The Calgary Flames were last years surprise team to make the NHL Playoffs in the Western Conference, but it’s safe to say they are not off to the same start that they were last season. They are off to a real slow start going 6-11-1 in their first 18 games, so it will be in the Hawks best interest to keep the Flames down and not give them any momentum when they visit the United Center tonight.

The Chicago Blackhawks for the first time all season almost looked balanced offensively with all four lines being active and the Hawks not getting all of their scoring from the second line, although the second line still picked up 2 goals and 3 assists in the victory against the Blues with Patrick Kane extending his point streak to 12 games.
The Blackhawks are 9-7-1 are smack dab in the middle of the pack in the Western Conference, but this is the time of year that the Blackhawks usually get on a roll and carry it threw December. Last night was the first step in getting on that roll which certainly helped with the return of Duncan Keith to the lineup after missing 10 games with a knee injury. The gang is all back together and now is the time to start picking up wins and 2 points nightly or it could really become a long drawn out regular season.
