The Chicago Blackhawks are channeling their inner Aerosmith as the “train kept rolling all night long.” The Blackhawks are coming off an impressive victory over the San Jose Sharks. They have pushed their record to 2-1-1 on the circus trip. The victory gave the Blackhawks more to build on. Patrick Kane extended his point streak to 17 games with two assists. That streak is one shy of the American record for longest point streak and four shy of the franchise record, currently held by Bobby Hull. In addition to Kane extending his streak, Artemi Panarin got back on the score sheet after a two-game absence. The Blackhawks also got scoring from Brent Seabrook, Duncan Keith, Andrew Desjardins and Andrew Shaw. The Blackhawks need to continue to find secondary scoring.

The Blackhawks’ next stop on the circus trip is at the Anaheim Ducks. This is a rematch of the Western Conference finals from last season. It is also the first time the Blackhawks have been back to Anaheim since defeating the Ducks in Game 7 of that series. After the series with the Blackhawks last season, the Ducks were the popular pick to win the Stanley Cup this season. The Ducks have not lived up to their lofty expectations so far, as they are currently three games under .500 and fifth in the Pacific Division. Ducks leaders Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry have struggled out of the gate. Perry has finally started scoring goals, while Getzlaf is still at one goal. Ducks fans might stop calling for the job of Bruce Boudreau with a victory today.

On the prediction part. I was right on Panarin and Shaw scoring against San Jose. I was also right that Brent Burns of the Sharks would score. I am also glad that Keith and Seabrook scored.
Final Score – The Blackhawks owned Frederik Andersen in the Western Conference Finals last year. But it doesn’t look like Andersen will go today, as he’s been dealing with the flu. John Gibson appears likely to get the start. Gibson will step up against the Blackhawks and allow just two goals, one from Jonathan Toews and one from Keith. Kane continues his point streak and gets an assist on the Toews goal. Corey Crawford comes up huge and only allows one goal from the hated Perry. The Blackhawks win 2-1.
