Same bat time, Same Bat Channel just a different location. It’s the Chicago Blackhawks visiting the Dallas Stars 2 days after the Hawks hosted their Central Division foe.
The problem wasn’t Crawford though during the Hawks 4-3 overtime loss to the Stars on Thursday. The main issue was the first period start where the Dallas Stars dominated the action and led 2-1 after 1 period. The Hawks had played in 7 straight very good first periods, but their stinker on Thursday helped cost them 2 points.
The other issue is one that has been around for a while which is the powerplay. It’s not just the fact that the Hawks don’t score on the man advantage. The thing is they struggle to build any momentum with it, and on Thursday they ended up giving up a penalty shot during one of their powerplays. If you aren’t going to be successful at least wear them out by maintaining possession!

The Hawks are getting a lot from their top rookie Alex DeBrincat. He finished the month of November with 10 goals which is the most by any Blackhawks rookie in any month. Even though Patrick Sharp isn’t scoring a lot he’s out there with the kid showing him the way.
The Stars are 9-2-1 on home ice so tonight will be a much tougher test to get two points on the road.

My predictions went a little sideways on Thursday so I’m back to the drawing board for tonight’s tilt.
Final Score Prediction
I see the Hawks coming out with more focus on the road, and jumping out to an early lead which leads to a lot of easy saves for Forsberg in the Hawks 5-2 win
