The Chicago Blackhawks host the Ottawa Senators tonight at the United Center, and they will be looking for their 6th straight victory.
The Chicago Blackhawks are riding a serious hot streak all of which with their #1 goalie on the mend although he’s expected back late in the week. Scott Darling did a great job rebounding against the San Jose Sharks on Sunday night after struggling a bit the previous two starts.
The most exciting part of the Chicago Blackhawks success the past few games has been the development of the Hawks youth. Vinnie Hinostroza has a ton of speed and now he’s starting to put his game together with back to back games scoring goals including the game winner against the St. Louis Blues on Saturday night.
The other player coming into his own is Ryan Hartman who I had some serious doubts entering this season. He was labeled for years as a poor man’s Andrew Shaw, but he really has turned the corner in not picking up the stupid penalties while still being annoying and disruptive. Before this season he was only known for one hit, but now people are getting to know him for his entire game.
The one really good thing that happened on Sunday night was that Duncan Keith scored a goal so we can stop counting the games he hasn’t scored to open the season. Tonight it’s a battle between two defenseman that have won the Norris trophy twice in Keith and Erik Karlsson. Granted both defenseman play a different game, but it’s pretty special to see two great defenseman on the ice tonight at the United Center.
