The Chicago Blackhawks get to face the Pittsburgh Penguins tonight in the Steel City and then turn around and play them tomorrow night on National TV at the United Center.  I’m sure you are tired of me writing this, but this scheduling is insane when it’s the only two times we will see the Penguins this season.

The Chicago Blackhawks will be looking for their 4th straight victory which kind of goes hand in hand with the Andrew Desjardins scoring phenomenon.  Desjardins is now on a line with Teuvo Teravainen and Phillip Danault and the secondary scoring has been something that the Chicago Blackhawks have been looking for all season long. The Blackhawks 2nd line has been carrying the load from the start of the 2015-2016 season and the numbers are crazy.  The 2nd line of Patrick Kane, Artem Anisimov, and Artemi Panarin have accounted for 113 points, while the rest of the roster has scored 180 points.   So the fact that anyone besides the 2nd line is on a hot streak is a huge relief.

Tonight, the Hawks face the Sidney Crosby led Penguins and this is a team with fire power, but the results haven’t been there which forced the franchise to fire it’s head coach but even with the change the record hasn’t been great with the Penguins going 4-5-1 in their last 10 games. You get to see Crosby, Malkin and Phil Kessel, but the player the probably will get talked about the most on the Penguins roster will be Trevor Daley. Daley just never fit in with the Blackhawks and now he’s a Penguin and the Hawks are stuck with Rob Scuderi who more than likely will be in a platoon role with Michal Rozsival the rest of the season barring any injuries.
