Montreal continues to stumble in the season. The cellar-dwellers in the Atlantic Division with just 18 points in 35 games, the Canadiens have seemed to be an easy target for the majority of the teams in the NHL. The team will be playing the second game of a back-to-back when they visit Chicago on Thursday. On the prior night, Montreal succumbed to the Boston Bruins, 5-1, which is their fourth straight loss and 11th in the last 12 games. Adding to the misery is Montreal’s grueling schedule that will see the Canadiens play six more games on the road before heading back home on the 27th to face the Anaheim Ducks.
Players to watch: N. Suzuki C (G 7, A 12, PTS 19), T. Toffoli RW (G 5, A 12, PTS 17), J. Drouin LW (G 6, A 11, PTS 17)
Overall, wins have been elusive for Chicago. Save for their last two games, one could suggest that the Blackhawks were already on the verge of exiting the competition. But not so fast. After pulling off separate upset victories against Vegas and Columbus, Chicago is now just within 10 points of the second wild-card position in the Western Conference. Making things more exciting, especially for the home fans in Chicago, is the scheduled debut of Lukas Reichel. Things have become favorable for the Blackhawks over the last couple of days, something that should give them enough fire to continue to compete despite their poor record.
Players to watch: P. Kane RW (G 7, A 25, PTS 32), A. DeBrincat LW (G 23, A 6, PTS 29), S. Jones D (G 3, A 22, PTS 25)
