The Chicago Blackhawks look for their first regulation victory since early December, playing the Anaheim Ducks at the United Center.
Gametime: 7:30 PM CST, United Center
Though they sport a three-game winning streak, the Blackhawks have not won in regulation time since December 3, losing on the 5th, winning in overtime on the 8th and 11th, and then winning in shootouts on Wednesday the 14th.
If ever there was a team the Hawks could beat in regulation, it would be the Ducks. Entering the game with only 71 goals scored through 30 games, Anaheim visits Chicago with an anemic offense and an unimpressive defense. The Blackhawks, who have scored 103 goals through 31 games, will look for continued offensive excellence from Jonathan Toews (18 goals), Patrick Sharp (16 goals), and Marian Hossa (13 goals, 19 assists).
