The Chicago Blackhawks and Pittsburgh Penguins take to the ice for the second time this month in a battle of teams that have Stanley Cup aspirations. 

The Chicago Blackhawks have been in a bit of a tailspin the last couple weeks with many people thinking that they are just going through the motions until the playoffs begin with the ability to flip that switch at anytime with their veteran core.

Of course, a lot of people don’t like the idea of peaking too early in February and coasting through the End of March and early April.  If this was the first run at the Stanley Cup I would be more apt to worry about the Blackhawks, but like I said during the 2nd period of the Tampa game that if this was a playoff game I would be losing my mind, but it wasn’t so it’s not that big of a deal.

The Chicago Blackhawks still have the best record in the NHL since February 1st and that’s been without Artem Anisimov in the lineup.  Last year, the Pittsburgh Penguins got red hot towards the end of the season, and they carried over right through the playoffs to lifting the Stanley Cup in June.

The Penguins do have something to play for, having fallen two points below Columbus in the Metro Standings which would mean starting out on the road in the opening round of the playoffs.

The Chicago Blackhawks have a 7 point lead with the Minnesota Wild falling from the standings makes it easier for Joel Quenneville to experiment with his lineup like getting Tomas Jurco in the lineup in Tampa and giving the kid some confidence.  What will Coach Q do tonight?
