Chicago has a pair of very winnable home games this weekend.

The Chicago Blackhawks are on another roll, and they head into the weekend fresh off a big shootout win over the Western Conference-leading Minnesota Wild. The Hawks, who have won seven of their last 10, return home on Friday to host Anaheim, then take a break before hosting Calgary on Sunday.

The full schedule is here.

Dec. 16: vs. Anaheim Ducks (7:30 p.m. CT, CSN)
The Ducks have had a rough year, and while their special teams units rank in the league's top half, in general they've had plenty of trouble both scoring and preventing goals. Veteran winger Teemu Selanne leads the team with 30 points, while Corey Perry leads them in goals with 12.

Dec. 18: vs. Calgary Flames (6:00 p.m. CT, WGN)
The Flames sit near the bottom of the Northwest Division, but they've played pretty well in recent weeks, and they aren't too far out of eighth place in the Western Conference. Jarome Iginla and Olli Jokinen lead the Flames in points.
