Chicago Blackhawks

A tough schedule is ahead of the Chicago Blackhawks as they are set to play teams above them in the standings for their next five assignments – all on the road. It starts Sunday in Winnipeg where they are underdogs. Chicago may be placed last in the Central Division but the team is still alive to contend in the postseason. Over its last 10 games, Chicago recorded 6-2-2, although its last two outings resulted in overtime losses to Boston and Minnesota, respectively. 

Players to watch: Patrick Kane (GP 54, G 25, A 41, PTS 66), Jonathan Toews (GP 54, G 14, A 30, PTS 44), Dominik Kubalik  (GP 52, G 21, A 11, PTS 32).

Winnipeg Jets

The Jets will play the Blackhawks for their second of a six-game homestand which started well with a 5-2 victory over Ottawa on Saturday. Patrik Laine was all over the place in the said match as he recorded his eighth career hat-trick to spearhead the team. He now has a total of 51 points in the season built around 23 goals and 28 assists. Rookie Kirby Dach continues to thrive on his role since being placed at the No. 2 line with Kane and Brandon Saad as he currently sits on a personal scoring streak of five games. The Jets are fourth in the Central Division but they have somehow struggled in their last 10 games where they accounted for only four wins.

Players to watch: Mark Scheifele (GP 56, G 23, A 34, PTS 57), Kyle Connor (GP 56, G 26, A 30, PTS 56), Patrik Laine (GP 54, G 23, A 28, PTS 51).

The visitors will not back down to the challenge as they will hold off Winnipeg’s offensive weapons to get back to their winning ways.
