Chicago Blackhawks

Chicago Blackhawks have ultimately plummeted the Central Division standings after losing five straight. Now that they are eight points behind a spot in the postseason, they will have to double their effort to conquer a visibly daunting task at hand. They will try to avoid getting swept with two more games left on the road before heading back home in Chicago. 

Players to watch: Patrick Kane (GP 57, G 25, A 44, PTS 69), Jonathan Toews (GP 57, G 15, A 31, PTS 46), Dominik Kubalik  (GP 55, G 22, A 11, PTS 33).

Calgary Flames

The Blackhawks are just two wins and three points out of the Vancouver Canucks, who are the best team in the Pacific (31-21-5). In fact, Calgary showed the team is not intimidated by Vancouver, imposing its dominance last Feb. 8 for 6-2 victory that snapped a prior three-game slump. There really is no more fooling around for the Flames as they will enter this Saturday’s match coming off a 6-0 rampage of Anaheim on Thursday.

Players to watch: Matthew Tkachuk (GP 58, G 19, A 28, PTS 47), Johnny Gaudreau (GP 59, G 14, A 33, PTS 47), Elias Lindholm (GP 59, G 25, A 21, PTS 46).
