The Chicago Blackhawks faceoff against the New York Rangers from the United Center that featured two teams leading their divisions with identical 37 point totals entering tonight’s game.
The Chicago Blackhawks were leaking oil most of last week before they were able to stop the madness thanks to a visit to the United Center by the Arizona Coyotes.
It was easy pickings for the Chicago Blackhawks, as Marian Hossa and the troops easily won on Tuesday night. The one negative coming out of the win was the fact that Brent Seabrook fell awkwardly and will be missing tonight’s contest.
The one thing you have to like about the Chicago Blackhawks this season is that they have found a way to win games even when they should have skated away with a loss. So, tonight’s going to be a real test with the Hawks playing without three of their core players.
Not only are they without Seabrook, they are of course without Corey Corey Crawford and the Captain Jonathan Toews. One thing that may work in the Chicago Blackhawks favor down the line is that their kids which needed to grow up are getting big minutes and big responsibilities sooner than later. Come playoff time these extra minutes could be the difference needed between a Game 7 win or loss.
That being said tonight’s action from the United Center should be another good test for the Blackhawks youngsters with the Rangers in town.
An unexpected site tonight will be former Chicago Blackhawks goalie Antti Raanta in net tonight instead of Henrik Lundqvist. One thing most Chicago Blackhawks fans should remember is that Raanta had a great record at the United Center.
So it won’t be easy, but it really should be a fun Original 6 matchup tonight for fans of the NHL, so here are the listings for tonight’s game.
