Blackhawks Vs. Avalanche Score Update: Chicago And Denver End First In Scoreless Tie

The Chicago Blackhawks are hoping to end their five-game losing streak tonight at the Pepsi Center against the Colorado Avalanche. After one period, the two teams are locked in a scoreless tie. This is the third of nine straight road games scheduled for Chicago to begin the second half.

Ray Emery got the start in net for Chicago and played well in the first period, turning away nine shots. Colorado goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere also turned away nine shots by the Blackhawks in the first. Chicago holds a small edge in both hits (6-5) and faceoff victories (9-7).

There was only one penalty in the first, a two-minute minor called on Colorado's Erik Johnson for cross-checking Chicago's Michael Frolik.

The Avalanche had a great chance to get a goal with under five seconds remaining in the period, but Chuck Kobasew's snap shot sailed wide of the net.

Andrew Brunette Injury: Chicago Blackhawks Winger A Gametime Decision Tuesday Night

Chicago Blackhawks forward Andrew Brunette played only one period against Edmonton last Thursday and skipped Friday's game against Calgary, and he'll be a gametime decision for the team's game against Colorado on Tuesday night. Brunette says the injury healed quickly:

"It’s just the little bumps and bruises you go through during the whole season, the wear and tear that kept me out," Brunette said. "It’s something we all go through and it’s getting better. That’s the important thing. It got better real quick. I’m hoping to play tonight or further down the stretch here."
