The Blackhawks are in Dallas tonight for their fourth matchup of the season with the Stars. The Blackhawks (31-17-5) are 3-0-0 against Dallas (21-21-10) this season and are looking to continue their dominance against the underachieving Stars. We saw some good things out of the Blackhawks in their last game, a 4-3 win in Arizona. Tonight the Blackhawks have an opportunity to further improve their play. Here are your expected lines:

Chicago

Schmaltz-Toews-Hossa

Panarin-Anisimov-Kane

Desjardins-Rasmussen-Panik

Hartman-Kero-Hinostroza

Keith-Hjalmarsson

Campbell-Seabrook

Forsling-van Riemsdyk

Corey Crawford (19-12-3, .917 SV%, 2.56 GAA)

Dallas

Ja. Benn-Eakin-Eaves

Roussel-Spezza-Seguin

Shore-Faksa-Sharp

Korpikoski-Cracknell-Ritchie

Lindell-Klingberg

Hamhuis-Nemeth

Jo. Benn-Johns

Kari Lehtonen (11-14-6, .902 SV%, 2.85 GAA)

If the Blackhawks play a well-disciplined sixty-minute hockey game tonight, they should have no problem with Dallas. Expect the second line to play exceptionally confident tonight because the Stars evidently lack the defensive depth to keep this trio in check.

Let’s Go Hawks.
