The Chicago Blackhawks and Dallas Stars get it on for the next two nights which is some pretty old school and exciting stuff! The Chicago Blackhawks are near the bottom of the rough and tough Central Division so getting as many points as possible in this home and home stretch is very key right now.
The Chicago Blackhawks are starting to play some pretty good hockey, and they have come out playing really good hockey in the first period for a few weeks now. To me that is the key tonight in their matchup against the Stars.
The Dallas Stars are a very bad 4-8-1 on the road this season, so it’s always good to come out with the pedal to the meddle when a team struggles on the road, and don’t give them any reason to think that they can steal a point or two against you in your house.
Patrick Kane‘s point streak ended at 7 on Tuesday night in Nashville, but he could have easily had 3 or 4 points in that game. The puck just didn’t bounce right for him, but the puck was finding him so I really expect him to come out with a whole lot of purpose tonight against the Stars.

The one player I’m starting to worry about is Richard Panik! He looks like his game lacks any kind of confidence right now. He’s getting to the right places, but he just can’t finish right now. If Panik can become dangerous once again, it would be a huge lift to the Blackhawks top line!
The Stars are 9-2-1 on their home ice so getting two points tonight would be huge in this home and home series! Here are the listings for tonight’s contest from the United Center.
