Canucks Vs. Blackhawks Preview: Chicago To Try To Extend Win Streak To Five

The Chicago Blackhawks won't be at the top of the standings by the end of the season, but they've been playing well in March as the season winds down. They host the Vancouver Canucks on Wednesday night in a battle of Western Conference contenders.

Vancouver has struggled of late despite holding steady as the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference standings, losing five of its past seven games. The Canucks got shutout in a 2-0 defeat against the Minnesota Wild earlier this week, and they've only won three times in their past ten games.

Chicago's played much better of late, winning four in a row and eight of its past ten games after going through a pretty rough stretch in February. The offense has played well, scoring at least four goals in each of the wins during the recent streak.

Blackhawks Vs. Capitals: Chicago Takes 2-0 Lead After First Period

The Chicago Blackhawks are fighting hard for that playoff position with an early 2-0 lead against the Washington Capitals. Andrew Shaw scored the first goal just 3:35 into the contest, while that goal was followed up by a score from Viktor Stalberg at the 7:44 mark.

Chicago dominated offensively, with 12 shots on goal compared to Washington's three, which included one from Alex Ovechkin that was stopped by at the goal. The Blackhawks had one power play in the period, but did not convert.

The Capitals are having a mediocre month of March, with 4-4 record so far. A loss to the Blackhawks would give them a losing record at this point in March.

Blackhawks Vs. Capitals: Chicago Can Build On Two Game Winning Streak

Barring a historic collapse, the Chicago Blackhawks will finish out the season's final ten games battling for playoff position while secure in the knowledge that they will be one of the Western Conference's top eight teams. The Washington Capitals, on the other hand, are fighting to hang on to the East's eighth seed, and every regular season game for them from here on out will have the intensity of a playoff game.

The Caps have been treading water in the month of March, compiling a 4-4 record which most recently includes a loss to the Winnipeg Jets, the team that is now two points behind them in the standings. The Blackhawks, meanwhile, are 5-2 in March and are currently enjoying a two-game win streak over the St. Louis Blues and Dallas Stars. Chicago has been able to stay hot despite the absence of captain Jonathan Toews, who has been out with a concussion and isn't expected back for Sunday's game.

Blackhawks Vs. Stars: Blackhawks Lead 2-0 After First Period

The Chicago Blackhawks took an early 2-0 lead over the Dallas Stars on Friday night in the Lone Star State, with Chicago star Patrick Sharp helping to lead the way. He did not score the first goal, though; that came from Dave Bolland— who, with his 18th, is inching towards the 20 goal plateau— with only ten seconds elapsed in the game. Bolland's goal came on assists from Andrew Shaw and Bryan Bickell.

Sharp then quickly followed with a goal that came about 90 seconds later, leaving fans that straggled into the game wondering how it's possible that two goals were scored in the game's first two minutes. Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford turned away all seven of the shots he saw in the period.

Blues Vs. Blackhawks Final Score: Chicago Wins 4-3 After Shootout

After benching their starting goaltender and completing an impressive comeback in regulation, the Chicago Blackhawks beat the St. Louis Blues in a shootout to finish off a stunning 4-3 victory on Tuesday night. Chicago trailed for most of the game, but never let down in front of a raucous home crowd.

Trailing 3-2 going into the final period, the Blackhawks desperately needed to get going on the power play to find some goals. While Chicago failed to capitalize on five of their six power play opportunities throughout the game, including three in the first two periods, it got the score when needed.

Roughly eight minutes into the third period, holding the man advantage, the Blackhawks' Brent Seabrook scored his sixth goal of the season to tie the game back up. Neither team would find the goal over the remainder of regulation and the overtime period.

But on Chicago's first attempt of the shootout, Patrick Kane executed a backhand goal that would ultimately prove to be the game-winner. Corey Crawford was huge for the Blackhawks, going a perfect 18-for-18 on save opportunities after replacing the struggling Ray Emery following the first period.

Blues Vs. Blackhawks Score Update: Chicago Changes Goalies, Trims Lead To 3-2

The Chicago Blackhawks are trailing 3-2 against the St. Louis Blues after two periods at the United Center. Chicago benched goaltender Ray Emery in favor of Corey Crawford following a brutal first period effort by the starter in the hopes of making a comeback.

So far, so good for Chicago, as Crawford saved all eight shots that St. Louis got on goal during the second period. While the Blackhawks couldn't tie the game up, Viktor Stalberg's goal roughly 14 minutes into the period at least cut the lead down to a single goal.

The Blackhawks have had three power play opportunities on Tuesday, but they haven't been able to capitalize on any of them. Getting more quality play from Crawford will be key if Chicago wants any chance of pulling off this comeback against one of the league's top teams, though.

Blues Vs. Blackhawks Score Update: St. Louis Leads 3-1 After First Period

The Chicago Blackhawks are trailing 3-1 after one period at the United Center following a major run by the St. Louis Blues in the final 16-plus minutes of the period. The Blackhawks initially took the lead in front of their home crowd, but Chicago couldn't stop the Blues' offensive attack.

After Andrew Brunette scored his 11th goal of the season just a few minutes into the game to give Chicago an early 1-0 lead, Blackhawks goaltender Ray Emery looked totally overmatched against a powerful St. Louis team. The Blues only mustered six shots over the entire period, but Emery was only able to save a measly half of them.

Roughly a minute after Brunette's goal, the Blues tied the game back up when Jamie Langenbrunner scored his fifth goal of the season. Andy McDonald followed that up for St. Louis a few minutes later with his ninth goal of the season to give the Blues the lead, and Patrik Berglund added to the advantage with his 16th goal of the season nearly ten minutes after that.
