The Chicago Blackhawks are hosting the Anaheim Ducks at the United Center tonight, and they will be trying their hardest not to extend their losing streak to 8 games.
This is the longest losing streak by the Blackhawks since 2012, and back then it looked like the Hawks could slip out of playoff contention while this time they have all but been eliminated by going on this terrible stretch.
Nothing has gone right for the Chicago Blackhawks, and one thing that really drives me nuts is the constant changing of lines by Joel Quenneville. Here are the lines from morning skate today.
So now Coach Q thinks he needs some toughness and someone who isn’t afraid to go to the net on the top two lines which is why Tommy Wingels is on the top line and Lance Bouma is playing with Patrick Kane.
I’ve been saying this for 6 seasons, but lines take time to build chemistry so the constant rearranging of the lines game in and game out isn’t going to build anything but a lack of confidence.

The Hawks need two points no matter how they can get them if they want to increase their 0.4% chance on making the playoffs. I’m really not in the mood for more tanking comments that’s for sure.
