8:30 PM ET/7:30 PM CT

Comcast SportsNet Chicago, PRIME

Chicago Blackhawks
Record: 4-1-2

Central Division Standing: 2nd

vs.

Anaheim Ducks
Record: 4-3-0
Points: 8
Western Conference Standing: 8th
Pacific Division Standing: 3rd

The enemy’s Aerys site: NONE

This is the first of four times the Blackhawks and the Ducks will meet this season, and already there’s a mad scramble for points in the Western Conference. Whoever loses this game might have these points haunt them come March.

Both teams are looking to get back on track after frustrating 5-4 losses this past weekend.

The Blackhawks have to contain the Ducks’ first line of Perry-Getzlaf-Ryan to have any sort of chance against them. Keep your fingers crossed.

Chicago lost to Colorado 5-4 in a shootout on Saturday.

Anaheim lost to Phoenix 5-4 on Sunday.

Quoted

Patrick Kane, CHI: “It was nice to tie it and take the lead, but it’s tough to give one away especially when you’re up that late.” (blackhawks.nhl.com)

Randy Carlyle, ANA: “We’re not sharp right now with the puck. Passes are going at people’s feet and bouncing off people’s sticks. We just have to find a way to get back to where we were.” (blackhawks.nhl.com)
