On the surface, the Chicago Blackhawks’ upcoming schedule may seem so-so in difficulty, but it’s actually a good chance to pick up points

Tonight, the Chicago Blackhawks will be in Boston to take on the Bruins at TD Garden. This starts a four-game stretch against teams having their fair share of struggles — though some might surprise you.

After Friday’s game, the Blackhawks head home for a three-game swing against the Vancouver Canucks, Tampa Bay Lightning and Winnipeg Jets. Then, it’s four days off for the All-Star break before heading to San Jose to close out the month.

That Sharks game will be no walk in the park — and no game in the NHL really is these days. Just look at what happened in Colorado on Tuesday. However, the Blackhawks have a golden opportunity to net eight points in four games starting tonight.
