The Chicago Blackhawks third straight game on National TV is tonight when they travel to the new Detroit Stadium to faceoff against the Red Wings.
I know you hear it every time these two teams play, but this used to be the Chicago Blackhawks greatest rival until they left for the Eastern Conference and earlier start times.
If the Hawks trend in these NBCSN games continues then they should get two points out of it tonight. They got 0 points against the Lightning, and they picked up 1 point last night against the Maple Leafs so 2 points tonight seems reasonable.
The Hawks are playing games where they have played pretty well, but their pretty well game just isn’t good enough anymore to pick up wins like in years past. So tonight they need to bring their A game to Detroit and start a winning streak and extend their one game point streak. All it takes is one bounce, one save, one goal to get them going in my opinion.
They hit three posts last night and lead the NHL with 40 hit this season. The law of averages is a big myth like the Lochness Monster, Big Foot, and North Dakota, but you have to believe some of these shots are going to find the back of the net instead of bouncing out time after time.

I did like how the Jonathan Toews line looked with Alex DeBrincat and Anthony Duclair. I would like to see Duclair shoot more instead of trying to pass at the last second for tap ins. He had two great chances last night that were blocked when he deferred.
The streak begins tonight right!?!? Let’s hope so! Here are the listings for tonight’s game!

I didn’t get home in time last night to make any predictions so I can’t complain about the Brent Seabrook icing play or the fact that I would have predicted a 3-2 Blackhawks win in overtime only to be thwarted by a strange penalty shot call. Anyways let’s get to it!
Final Score Prediction
The Chicago Blackhawks come out and make their own breaks early on in the first period, and they score 3 times in the frame and actually win a stress free game in Detroit 5-2 with Duncan Keith actually picking up his first goal of the season.
Three Stars Prediction
#3 Star- Tomas Tatar- 1 Goal 1 Assist
#2 Star- Anthony Duclair-2 Goals
#1 Star- Alex DeBrincat 1 Goal 2 Assists
