Ducks Leapfrog Blackhawks In Western Conerence Standings With Win

With their 2-1 win over the Hawks tonight at the United Center the Anaheim Ducks have jumped ahead of the Blackhawks for Seventh place in the Western Conference standings. The loss ended the Blackhawks streak of six consecutive home wins. A victory would have cemented the Hawks longest such streak since 2009.

It seemed the Blackhakws were on their way to another win for most of the game, as both of the Ducks’ goals on the night were scored in the third period, on shots by Corey Perry. Though the Hawks own Corey, Corey Crawford, managed 23 saves on the night, the Hawks offense, missing Patrick Sharp, was anemic. Marian Hossa’s first period goal would be the only scoring for Chicago in the game.

The Blackhawks have eight games left in the regular season, but none against their closest competition in the Western Conference. Instead, they have three dates against the Central leading Detroit Redwings.The Hawks next play on Monday in Detroit.

Streaky Blackhawks Look For Another Win Against Anaheim Ducks

It seems like the Blackhawks have been unusually streak prone this season. Long stretches of losses in the beginning of the season, and the now much more welcome rattling off of wins. The Hawks look to continue this trend as they go for their seventh consecutive home win tonight at 7:30 at the United Center.

The Hawks are currently in sixth place in the West, with the Ducks only one point behind in eighth. Winning a seventh consecutive home game would be a first for the Blackhawks since an eight game streak that occurred all the way back in 2009. Odds seem good for a Hawks victory tonight, however, as they've won five of six against the Ducks when at home.

With leading scorer Patrick Sharp out with a knee injury, the Hawks will look to Corey Crawford to lock down defense in the goal. Crawford is 2-1 against the Ducks this season and has allowed less than two goals per game against them.

Tonight's game is at 7:30 P.M. and will be televised on CSN Chicago.
