It’s a Western conference showdown between two teams who have already clinched a playoff spot. The Chicago Blackhawks continue their three game road trip when they take on the Ducks on Thursday night.
This is the third match up of the year between the two teams. The visiting team has won each of the first two match ups.
Not only do the Chicago Blackhawks have a playoff spot locked up, they also have the top spot, and home ice advantage in the Western conference locked up.
But the Blackhawks come into this game struggling a bit.
They have lost their last two games and their defense hasn’t been great. One thing to watch in this game is if the Blackhawks rest anyone.
They started to rest a few players in their last game against the Avs, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see them do the same in this one.
The Anaheim Ducks also have a playoff spot locked up but they are still playing for positioning and a division championship. They are in first place in the Pacific division and four points up on second place.
If they were to win this game they would have that top spot locked up.
To win this game they really need to be attacking early.
The more shots they can throw on net the better the chance they clinch that top spot.
