The Chicago Blackhawks look to snap a two-game losing streak Friday, as they host visiting Colorado Avalanche in a Western Conference match up at the United Center (7:30 p.m. CT on CSNC). The first-place Blackhawks (24-12-4, 52 points) are trying to stay head of fast-charging Detroit Redwings (25-13-1) and St. Louis Blues (23-12-5, 51 points), who both are just one point behind Chicago in the Central Division Standings.

On Thursday, the Blackhawks lost their second straight one-game game dropping a 5-4 contest at the Philadelphia Flyers, who scored the game-winner with 32.7 seconds screaming in the third period.. One more loss with match a season-high of three.

Meanwhile, the Avs (22-18-1, 45 points) are searching for their season-high fourth straight road victory. Colorado currently sits in third place in the Northwest Division standings, behind the Vancouver Canucks (53 points) and Minnesota Wild (48), respectively.

Colorado has one two of its last three trips to Chicago.
