The Blackhawks begin a 6 game road trip across the boarder as they get set to take on the Edmonton Oilers Wednesday night.
Chicago comes in with some momentum as they’ve won 2 straight games after a 4-2 win over St. Louis on Saturday.
Edmonton has dropped back-to-back games to Arizona and the Kings sending them to 6 games under the .500 mark.
The Blackhawks have won 2 in a row and is getting some impressive play from Patrick Kane up front.
Kane has scored in 7 straight games, which is a career high for him. Overall, Kane has tallied 28 points on the season and has 10 goals and 12 assists during his current 13 point streak.
Chicago is in the midst of their “circus trip” something that happens every season where the Circus comes to town and they hit the road for 6 games. Last years circus trip was a major success as they finished 5-1 and have won 11 of their last 13 circus trip games.
The Blackhawks defeated the Oilers back on Nov. 8th in a 4-2 game that saw Kane score a goal and record 3 assists in the win.
Chicago’s troubles this season though have came on the road. Away from the United Center, the Blackhawks are just 2-5 SU. Chicago has struggled to score and struggled to stop the opposition from scoring in these games. They’re putting up just 2.14 goals for and 3.29 goals against.
The Oilers season hasn’t been one to enjoy thus far. They’ve won just 6 of their first 18 games and find themselves once again in the cellar of the standings.
Edmonton’s Taylor Hall has been the leader for the Oilers, especially against the Blackhawks.
In 16 career meetings vs. the Blackhawks, Hall has recorded 21 points total. Hall has put in 9 goals and added 12 assists, but was held scoreless in the Nov. 8th meeting.
Hall has succeeded against a majority of the opposition, not just the Blackhawks. On the season, Hall has recorded 20 points total and leads the team in both goals (8) and assists (12).
Edmonton’s misery this season has stemmed from their struggles defensively. The Oilers concede 3.22 goals overall and 3.38 in home games. In those home games, the Oilers are 3-5 SU.
