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.
