Coming off of their bye week, the Chicago Blackhawks (35-17-5) are set to host the Edmonton Oilers (31-19-8) at the United Center at 6:00 pm CST. The Hawks look to win their first game back after their week off, a feat that few teams have been able to accomplish. Teams coming off of their bye week are a measly 3-9-1 in their first game¬†this season.
