Chicago Blackhawks Vs Minnesota Wild TV Listings, Predictions, And More
By Keith Schultz
The Chicago Blackhawks travel to Minnesota tonight to face the Wild for the first time this season in their building.
It’s really interesting how every season, the Minnesota Wild barely play any games in October and November, and even this past week or so it’s felt like the Blackhawks have hardly played this week and the Wild still have played 3 less games this season.
The Chicago Blackhawks were slumping quite a bit going into Wednesday night’s game against the Philadelphia Flyers, and they played a lot better offensively finally breaking their powerplay scoreless streak.
The one thing that was a bit scary for the Chicago Blackhawks were how many times the Flyers had 2 on 1’s and breakaways. The only thing that separated the two teams was the play of Corey Crawford who stopped everything he saw which helped him pick up his 22nd career shut out.
The Chicago Blackhawks will be looking to score early on the road to keep the crowd out of the game, and to keep their momentum building from the Flyers game.
It didn’t look like Joel Quenneville was making any changes to the lineup that he played on Wednesday night which means that Cody Franson will get another game with Duncan Keith. Franson looked very capable of playing with Keith on Wednesday night, and he has a pretty good shot from the point which helps create offense.
The one thing that is pretty noticeable is that the energy line does create havoc on a nightly basis which has to make Coach Q pretty happy. Hopefully they will have a big hit that changes momentum during the game.
