The Chicago Blackhawks went from smoking red hot with a 12 game winning streak to a team sporting a 2 game losing streak in just a matter of what felt like 24 hours after back to back losses in the Sunshine State.  The Tampa Lightning game was a close one, but the Chicago Blackhawks looked like a tired/spent team in South Florida when they got shut out by the Florida Panthers on Friday night.

So now the Chicago Blackhawks are back home at the United Center tonight, which will be their last home game until February 9th, to face-off against the hated St. Louis Blue which will be a very big game in the standings Central Division Standings.   The Hawks and Blues are in position to be the top 2 teams in the Central Division after the hot starts by the Dallas Stars and Nashville Predators have recently cooled off.

When you look at the standings one thing really stands out and that is how good the Chicago Blackhawks are at home with a 20-5-1 record, so this would make for a season for the Chicago Blackhawks to finish on top of the standings to secure more home games at the United Center so these games against the Blues and other Central Divisional foes are big points to pick up.

The Chicago Blackhawks are finding some balance scoring fell back to their struggling offensive ways when the Patrick Kane line doesn’t find the scoresheet. So it’s back to the drawing board with some new faces, but according to this mornings skate Brandon Mashinter will be back in the lineup and newly acquired  Jiri Sekac will be watching.
