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. Despite what the numbers say, the Blackhawks are looking for their sixth-straight win against an Edmonton team that they took care of easily last Saturday, winning 5-1 on the road. Here are your expected lines for tonight’s contest:
Corey Crawford (22-12-3, .918 SV%, 2.57 GAA)
Cam Talbot (29-16-7, .920 SV%, 2.37 GAA)
Welcome back hockey, we’ve missed you.
Let’s Go Hawks
