The Chicago Blackhawks are on a one game winning streak, and they will be looking for the LA sweep today as they faceoff against the Anaheim Ducks on the pond this afternoon.
So after watching 60 games this season, I’m not sure what changed but it was nice to see the Chicago Blackhawks wake up in a third period and score and make a comeback to win a game. This definitely wasn’t the team we have watched for most of this year.
During the last month or so of losing, it’s been weird to see the Hawks score first so much and then be unable to back it up with another goal and especially a victory. So here are a couple of tweets with stats that will drive you crazy!
The Chicago Blackhawks usually were a lock to win the game or get a point out of a game when scoring first, but this year has been a nightmare. So to say the script was flipped yesterday maybe an over exaggeration but it was nice to see them skate away with a victory.
The Ducks are fighting for the last Wild Card spot so expect them to be fully engaged today, but the Hawks always seem to have their number in these afternoon games at their place. Who knows if yesterday’s third period finally wakes up the Hawks. Should be fun though!

My predictions weren’t very good yesterday except for the fact that I had Jonathan Toews as the third star of the game which was spot on! Time to see if I can improve today on my predictions!
