The Chicago Blackhawks will try to get back on track at home starting tonight against the Buffalo Sabres and continuing Sunday against the Arizona Coyotes

After five straight losses, the Chicago Blackhawks will look to get back to winning during a three game homestand. The loss of goalie Corey Crawford to an injury has not helped a team that has struggled to defend and score goals during this losing streak, but thankfully Crow is due back in net tonight.

The current losing streak is not sitting well with coach Joel Quenneville, as he mentioned in his postgame comments Wednesday night.

General manager Stan Bowman must also be disturbed with his team’s current trend as he placed waivers on center Tanner Kero on Thursday.  This signaled another roster change coming, as Vinnie Hinostroza was called up today.

As Blackhawk Up writer Matt Morrow mentioned in his Hot and Not post this week, just a few changes could spark this team and get it back on track.  Here’s what the ‘Hawks will be up against this weekend in their quest to right the ship.
