Chicago Blackhawks Vs. Anaheim Ducks Game Preview

The Blackhawks welcome Corey Perry, Teemu Selanne and the rest of the Ducks to the United Center tonight for a Western Conference showdown.

Our Chicago Blackhawks return to action tonight when head coach Gordon Bombay leads the Mighty Ducks Teemu Selanne and the Anaheim Ducks invade the United Center. The 'Hawks are looking for their third win in their last four games. With 10 points and just one regulation loss so far on the young season, Chicago enters tied with Detroit atop the Western Conference Central Division standings. Anaheim is 4-3, good for eight points and a third place standing in the Pacific Division.

The 'Hawks will certainly be keeping an eye on Selanne. The 41-year old forward continues to defy Father Time by leading the team in points (four). Rising Canadian-born forward Corey Perry will also be a top concern for Joel Quenneville's crew. The 26-year old has three goals on the season, and is riding a four-game point streak.

The 'Hawks enter the game second in the NHL with an average of 3.4 goals per contest. Marian Hossa, Jonathan Toews, and Dave Bolland have each found the back of the net four times.
