CHICAGO, IL - OCTOBER 07: (L-R) Gustav Forsling /

The Chicago Blackhawks return home to the United Center tonight after a brief two game Original 6 tour through Canada earlier this week.  Tonight, they have their first Central Division matchup when the Minnesota Wild come to town. 

The Chicago Blackhawks have already played 4 games this season, and they have a very solid 3-0-1 record, while the Minnesota Wild have played two games this season and are 0-1-1.  Let me know if you’ve heard this before, but the Minnesota Wild already have 2 games in hand. It’s weird that the schedule makers do this every season.

Anyways, to the game and it will be the third straight start that Nick Schmaltz will be missing so it’s back to the same lines as the past few games for Coach Quenneville.

The Chicago Blackhawks are now the whipping boys of advanced stats since they have been routinely out shot in each game since losing Schmaltz to injury.  Corey Crawford is the reason the Hawks have been able to win these games especially Tuesday night in Montreal.  The Hawks are really pushing the puck, but with the young defensmen back there they are leading to a lot of chances for the opposition, and Crawford has been up to the task.

The defense will have Connor Murphy back in the lineup with Cody Franson back in the pressbox.  I think both need to work on their game, but neither has been terrible either.  I did like what I saw from Franson offensively, and it looks like the Hawks defense is being way more aggressive in their own end.

The Hawks have been dynamite in their first two games at home so far, it will be fun seeing what energy level they bring to the ice tonight.

I thought for sure the Chicago Blackhawks were going to score an empty net goal and complete my 2nd perfect prediction in 4 games, but they didn’t so my 4-1 prediction came up short.

Final Score Prediction– The Chicago Blackhawks have been a whirlwind at home blowing away the competition.  They will come out hot again tonight and beat the short-handed Wild 6-2.
