Blackhawks look to end losing skid.

The Blackhawks will face Edmonton on Thursday in game two of their nine-game roadtrip. The Hawks dropped an overtime decision to Vancouver in their first game of the trip. Chicago has lost three games in a row, and what better time to end it than against a bad Edmonton team.

Before Hawks fans get to excited though, the Blackhawks have dropped two-of-three to the Oilers this season, including a 4-3 decision a month ago today.

Scheduled to start in goal tonight will be Corey Crawford (18-12-5, 2.86 ) for the Blackhawks and Devan Dubnyak (8-11-1, 2.83) for Edmonton.

Thursday's game is the first of back-to-back games for the Hawks. Chicago will be in Calgary on Friday night to face the Flames.

Start time for Thursday's game is 8:30 CST. The game will be televised on CSN.
