The Chicago Blackhawks move from Toronto to Montreal tonight in a little thing we call the Original 6 boogie. The Blackhawks will be looking to continue their point streak to start the season.
The Chicago Blackhawks have scored 18 goals in the first three games, but they have slowly decreased their goal amounts every game from 10,5,2 and tonight they will most likely be facing Carey Price.
The Hawks offense didn’t look the same in the last two periods of the game in Toronto without Nick Schmaltz in the lineup, and they were outshot badly 43-21 in a game they normally win with a third period lead.
These of course are some of the growing pains we will have to get used to with a rebuilt defense and a lot of younger players playing big roles for the Hawks this season.

With the Hawks playing back to back games, Corey Crawford starts tonight in his hometown. Crawford has been spectacular when playing in Montreal during his career.
This will be the Hawks first back to back set of games, and over the years the Hawks have been pretty good on the 2nd half of back to back games so this will be interesting to see what this team does tonight in Montreal. I wouldn’t expect any lineup changes except for Crawford tonight.
Here are the listings for tonight’s game.

We move on to predictions, and I didn’t have a very good night in the predictions category, so with it being back to back nights of games I will move on quickly to Montreal just like the team does!
Final Score Predictions– The Hawks usually can score against Price and the Canadiens in Montreal so I will give the Hawks the edge in a 4-1 win with Crawford playing well as always in his hometown.
