The Blackhawks are in Canada this weekend for a pair of games against Northwest Division teams.
Chicago's six-game road trip began on Wednesday, and so far, so good--the Blackhawks won in Vancouver, 5-1. This weekend they'll stay in Canada (and the Northwest Division) for games against the Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers.
The weekend schedule:
Nov. 18: at Calgary Flames (8:00 p.m. CT, CSN)
The Blackhawks and Flames played in Chicago last Friday, a 4-1 win for the Hawks. If Chicago is to extend its four-game winning streak, the team will have to do it without Brent Seabrook, who is "progressing" but will sit out Friday's game according to coach Joel Quinneville. Michael Frolik is questionable.
Nov. 19: at Edmonton Oilers (9:00 p.m. CT, WGN or CBC)
Chicago also met Edmonton last weekend, and handed them a loss as well. The Oilers have been struggling over the past week after a hot start to the year and will look to get back on the right track at home against Chicago.
